For those of you with a CD Burner, compile this definitive Best of

If you are unhappy with the recent tracklisting and release of U2 18 Singles. Then you can always compile your own definitive Best Of. If you have a CD burner or Ipod or whatever then this is my suggestion for a Definitive Best Of.

First of all I would have a 2 CD set. And I would call it "35 By 4" as it will have 35 tracks on their over the 2 CDs and of course it will by 4 guys. The title also has similarities with the title of the recently released book U2 By U2. (if anyone has a better title then by all means suggest it). My tracklisting for the first disc is nearly the same as "18 Singles" except I Will Follow (which is the bonus track) is near the middle of the running order rather than the first one, and The tomb raider mix of Elevation is on there instead of the album version. The second disc i've compiled myself and i believe it has most of the other singles on there. Anyway here is the full tracklisting I would welcome any comments of the tracklisting.

CD 1

1. Beautiful Day
2. I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For
3. Pride (In The Name Of Love)
4. With Or Without You
5. Vertigo
6. New Years Day
7. Mysterious Ways
8. Stuck In A Moment You Can't Get Out Of
9. I Will Follow
10. Where The Streets Have No Name
11. Sweetest Thing
12. Sunday Bloody Sunday
13. One
14. Desire
15. Walk On
16. Elevation
17. Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own
18. The Saints Are Coming
19. Window In The Skies

CD2

1. Discotheque
2. Hold Me Thrill Me Kiss Me Kill Me
3. City Of Blinding Lights
4. The Unforgettable Fire
5. Stay (Faraway, So Close)
6. Electrical Storm
7. All Because Of You
8. Even Better Than The Real Thing
9. When Love Comes To Town
10. Staring At The Sun
11. Numb
12. The Fly
13. Angel Of Harlem
14. Miss Sarajevo
15. Bad
16. All I Want Is You

As I've said I would welcome any comments on this tracklisting. But I believe this Is what U2 should've released as a Definitive Best Of because it will satisfy me if they had done this.

With U2:18, I'd take out S. thing, 2 ATYCLB songs and put in I will follow, Stay and Discotheque instead. (hidden track Gloria)

Re: For those of you with a CD Burner, compile this definitive Best of

Hola


Nice compilation ... but ... missing several things

1- Any "Definitive" compilation must contains tracks from all albums, and there's nothing from October in here

2- Second, it should be presented in chronological order

3- Some songs don't deserve to be on a "Definitive" compilation. All "new songs" from Best ofs (Sweetest Thing, Electrical Storm, Saints Are Coming and Window In The Sky) are just average songs that have been nothing but filler stuff. They don't even deserve to be on a Studio Album. Just because a new song is included on a best of doesn't mean it's a great song at all.

4- No compilation is "definitive" without Please, their best song of the 90s

If I were to make my own U218 it'd be these songs (done in chronological order also, which makes so much more sense)

1. I Will Follow
2. Gloria
3. Pride (In The Name Of Love)
4. With or Without You
5. I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For
6. Where the Streets Have No Name
7. All I Want Is You
8. Desire
9. Zoo Station
10. One
11. Mysterious Ways
12. Stay (Faraway, So Close!)
13. Discotheque
14. Beautiful Day
15. Walk On
16. Vertigo
17. Sometime You Can't Make It On Your Own
18. City of Blinding Lights

Oh and that is the same number of tracks but represents all albums, and if we were being real and Saints/WITS has to be there then remove AIWY and Zoo Station I guess and it's still damn good.

Assuming they'd use a 30-song double disc, I'd use

- IWF, Gloria, NYD, SBS, 40 from first three albums
- Bad*, Pride, WOWY, I still haven't found..., Streets, Desire, AIWIY, AOH, Heartland
- One, UTEOTW*, Acrobat
- Stay, First time, Dirty day*
- Gone, SATS, Please*
- Kite, BD, Stuck
- OOTS, Sometimes, COBL
- HMTMKMKM*

hidden song live version of Bullet the blue sky

*live versions

I dislike mixed live/studio albums, especially on best-ofs. One or the other for me.

A definitive collection of their singles might have been more interesting - use the fan favourites and the radio favourites. Here's my stab at it (it has to be 2 discs):

The Best Of U2 1980-2006

Disc 1:
1 11 O'Clock Tick Tock
2 Even Better Than The Real Thing
3 Stay (Faraway, So Close!)
4 Sunday Bloody Sunday
5 Vertigo
6 Last Night on Earth [SINGLE VERSION]
7 Please
8 Where The Streets Have No Name
9 Gloria
10 New Year’s Day
11 The Unforgettable Fire
12 Lemon [SINGLE EDIT]
13 With Or Without You
14 Desire
15 Window In The Skies

Disc 2:
1 Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me
2 One
3 I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For
4 The Fly
5 I Will Follow
6 Beautiful Day
7 Pride (In The Name Of Love)
8 Walk On [SINGLE VERSION]
9 Original Of The Species [SINGLE VERSION]
10 Mysterious Ways
11 Staring At The Sun
12 Miss Sarajevo [RADIO EDIT]
13 Sweetest Thing [SINGLE VERSION]
14 Out Of Control
15 All I Want Is You [SINGLE VERSION]
