Another Hard Question!! Which Song Would You Leave Off The Joshua Tree?

I know that this album isn't as conceptually-themed as Achtung Baby, but it does have a central theme of Bono's ideas of America woven throughout (at least imo-see what happens when I think?).

Anyway, my pick-Red Hill Mining Town.

Anyone else?

"Bullet the Blue Sky"...cuz I would at least still have the live version from R&H.

hmmmmmmmm..... Trip Through Your Wires.

If we continue this trend of disowning U2 songs we're going to stir up abandonment issues

hehe j/k

ALL OF IT!!!! J/K, i don't fancy JT too much, but if i had to choose a least fav, i would pick "haven't found" oh and ESPECIALLY the R&H version, those 'sexy voice' backups make me vomit. it just drones on and on. nice video though.

We'll just say it was a track that almost made the album but didn't and then surfaced on R&H...

HA!!!!!!!!!!

LOL! Oh ok.... you found a loophole

And so do I actually, nellie... really... I am in love with The Joshua Tree entirely. But unfortunately one of my precious babes had to go, and based on the fact that I wasn't so very fond of this song performed live on the R&H outtakes, well...

Difficult.... hmmmmm..... even though I don't want to say it, it would probably be "Mothers of the Disappeared". So sad, I know.

Red Hill Mining Town

A merely good song on an otherwise flawless record.

Red Hill Mining Town- don't hate it, but don't love it either. On the copy of the cd I made onto cassette for my car I didn't even copy that song.

That's much tougher for me than picking one for Achtung Baby. I would probably have go to with Trip Through Your Wires. I do like it a lot, but it's not essential to the album, if you know what I mean. In God's Country would also be a contender...but I think I'd have to go with Trip.

I think I would leave off "Bullet the Blue Sky." As much as I respect the song and the meaning of it and the new life it takes on when performed live, I skip that track most of the time. Most of the time when I listen to JT it is to relax, and "Bullet" just sounds too harsh coming in right after WOWY. But then again, they probably put the track in that position on purpose to create the uncomfortable contrast.
