Lady With the Spinning Head (Extended Dance Mix) - definitely my favorite
Stay (Faraway, So Close! Soundtrack Mix) - like the drums on this version
Beautiful Day (Quincy and Sonance Mix) - I like how this has a major dance club vibe but the guitars from the original stay intact
Elevation (Influx Remix) - definitely the best version of this song, along with the new live arrangement for the Vertigo tour
Bottoms (Watashitachi No Ookina Yume) (Zoo Station Remix) - i LOVE the intro to this... it just has something
Dirty Day (Junk Day Mix) - funky

Most U2 remixes are downright horrible, but there's a few that are good:

- Wire (Dub Mix)
- Lady With The Spinning Head (Extended Dance Remix)
- Dirty Day (Bitter Kiss)
- I'm Not Your Baby (Skysplitter Dub)

That's a great song. But despite its title, as that's the only version of Bottoms, does it really count as a remix?

After all these years I've still yet to hear the Wire Dub mix.

I have to say that LWTSH remix and the Salome remix would be my favs.

Also like the Mofo Phunk Phorce Mix.

A promo-only 12". The A-side is an 8:20 remix called Mystery Train Dub. It's a great version - in fact you could almost say it's 2 songs in one because the first half is quite different to the 2nd half.

There's an edited version on one of those dodgy remix CDs (the fruit ones that copied Melon) but that version doesn't do the song justice.

^ So are you saying there's a Mystery Train Dub and a Mystery Train regular mix? Not according to U2wanderer... I only know of the Dub version.

You're right, the "edit" on More Melon is lame.

sure it does!
I thought the title just meant "This track is called Bottoms and it is a remix of Zoo Station".

Great remix. JAM!

Has no one mentioned Night and Day (Steel Strings Remix)?

I love that remix . . . especially the minute-long guitar intro.

Yeah, I think the deal is that it's just a remix of Zoo Station. They just added the weird artsy-sounding title to make it fit with the Passengers project.

I feel that considering Bottoms to be a remix of Zoo Station is akin to considering The Fly or Ultra Violet a remix of Lady With The Spinning Head. Sure, Bottoms draws strongly upon Zoo Station but it stands on its own as an independent song.

Quite right! Bottoms is fantastic!
Steel string mix of Night and Day and a 1000x better than the all around the weorld mix or whatever it's called, which basically finishes after the 1st chorus.
