Best of 2000-2010 - yay or nay ?

We had a lot of "unnecessary, songs rehashing" etc talk with U2:18.

But what if U2 came up with a third two disc, bronze-coloured Best of that would consist of circa 15 songs on each disc ?

What would you put on it, would you consider buying it with a good selection of songs and a good new song added ?


My setlist would be:

4 songs off ATYCLB (BD, Stuck, Walk on and Kite, to keep the tradition of a popular live non-single song)

3 songs off Bomb : Vertigo, Sometimes, COBL

1 new song

3 songs off LP 12

2 songs from the "Passengers part II" Morocco

Ground beneath her feet and Stateless off MDH


disc 2 remixes ?

unless they release two new full albums and the passengers 2 one by 2010 but as that's unlikely, i have to say nay.
Though they probably will anyway.

Beautiful Day and Stuck are already on 1990-2000.

I say FUCK no.

But I'm sure it's going to happen when The Edge decides he needs another yacht or Bono wants a house in Tuscany.

I can't conceive of any possible tracklist that would make it worthwhile.

They jumped the gun with 18 and wrecked a perfectly nice system of best-ofs. It would be insane for BD to appear on 3 best of comps within a decade.

Nay ... but at least not before the next official studio album has come out. Because otherwise we have to wait again months and months, before we get to hear new tunes ...

I've been thinkin' about this a lot lately, and I have to agreee that the only way I could see it is if they get out 2 albums by 2010 and the other possible Passengers thing. Even then, they might need another single project thing like HMTMKMKM to add another track or something.

4 from Bomb, 3 from LP 12, 3 from LP 13, 1 From Passengers II, 1 from random single project, 2 brand new tracks, and that still only gives you 14 tracks.

My short answer is "Nay". No way they'll be productive enough for it. I'm thinking something more like "Best of 2000 to The Day We Called it Quits". But I'm sure they'll find a way to do a few more compilations before that happens; "U2:18 More" or something weak like that.

It could still contain songs from ATYCLB as well, remember. Elevation and Walk On were singles that didn't appear on 1990-2000.

Why would they need 2 more albums and the "next Passengers" until 2010?
As it stands now, it looks like this decade we will get 3 albums and an extra project - just as much as they had to work with on the 90's Best of.

You don't really think BD won't be on the 2000-2010 Best of ? It was the biggest hit of the decade.

Ahittle: the gun jumped them, it seems.

Rich79: I don't know...I think they'll probably wait until their career is over and then do a proper career-spanning Best of. I'm sure if U2:18 didn't have to happen, we'd probably get a bronze coloured two-disc 2000-2010 Best of.

I realize BD was big, but I don't see them repeating any songs from the 1990-2000 compilation, although I wouldn't be surprised if a different mix of it was on there.

They won't repeat Beautiful Day, just like they won't repeat Window In The Skies or The Saints Are Coming for the next Best of.

I disagree. I think Saints and WITS will be on the next Best Of, if it actually happens.

I'm sure they will invoke the argument that U2:18 was a singles compilation, not a Best Of.

From ATYCLB, they would probably use Walk On, Elevation, and Kite.

So with 3 tracks from ATYCLB, 4 tracks from HTDAAB, and the 2 new songs from U2:18, they only need 3-4 tracks from their next LP and a couple of new tracks to round out a perfectly unnecessary third Best Of.

Let's wait and see what other material we get before the decade is out.

Generally, I don't buy Best Ofs unless there's something big and extra on it----I ripped the two Best Ofs from a friend, and I only own U2:18 for the Milan dvd.
