Come to Europe then. Here in the Netherlands (and also Belgium) the price for a new CD is still quite often around 18 or 20 euro. With today's exchange rate, that translates to ~ $24.

Hence why I bought up when I was there (also because most CDs don't have that Copy Control Crap).

And yes, I still think I didn't buy enough.

Thanks a lot for your kind words! I am really touched. This is a great forum. My email is thefonz_29@hotmail.com, but only send something if you really want to.

Axver, I thought you would have been shocked by my rating of One Tree Hill? (which is a good song).

So we all like Running To Stand Still around here? Because personally I think it is one of the best tracks on there.

Another problem though - with Exit, is everybody's version really really quiet? Like I had my speakers up full and I still couldn't hear the lyrics to the first verse.

That would be why I am sending you a file of One Tree Hill live on 26 December 1989! Note the extended solo and Bono's completely improvised verse at the end. I'll post the link here for anyone else once you've used it.

RTSS is easily one of the most beautiful songs ever made. I or someone else will have to send you one of the performances from the ZooTV Tour when Edge played it on guitar. So beautiful.

Yep, it's a bit of a pain. This is where headphones come in handy - I always listen to my music through headphones. Exit live was UNBELIEVEABLE. 29 April 1987 is the pick of the bunch for me.

Yeah, you've got more songs coming your way from me.

I'm pretty sure you could order in a copy of the video to your local store, though maybe you'll want to wait: there are persistent rumours that ZooTV Sydney will receive a DVD release in the near future, and those have to come true sooner or later!

And I hope you enjoy the songs I've sent!

I know Axver likes this song, but I can’t say I liked it straight away. The chorus is really good, and it’s enjoyable to listen to with its soothing back beats but it didn’t really catch my attention.

Only 3.5 for "one tree hill"? NO NO NO!
