Interesting quote about The Fly played on the Vertigo tour...

Pretty cool...

Quote:
The band felt that, while the song was good, they hadn't gotten it exactly right. David Bowie told them, upon hearing it, that it needed to be re-recorded. Bono has also said, "It took us fifteen years to really get it right live," assumingly meaning that the intended product is the version played on the Vertigo Tour.

What?! The studio version of The Fly is flawless. I know David Bowie is the shit and all, but he must have been smoking crack when he told them that.

well.. its a lot more ROCK AND ROLL and U2-ish now...


probably why we all like the original/Zoo Tv version.... for its non-U2ism

the album version sounds dated while the new version sounds perfect i'd say.

Vertigo tour version sucked


Bono's weak vocals



Elevation and Zoo TV versions FTW

As others have said, I find the Elevation version of The Fly faaaaaaaaaar superior to any other version. I still love the album version, but once hearing it live in 2001 there's nothing that compares.

The studio version doesn't sound dated, and the Vertigo version is a joke

The mixing on the album version is terrible, and that's why it sounds dated. The arrangement, everything, is perfect, it's just the mixing. If they remastered Achtung Baby, you'd all swing back in line with the original in a heartbeat.

I wish Edge still played like that.

mixing is fine on AB
Bowie - Bowie thought Pink Floyd were done after Syd Barrett left , until David Gilmour convinced him otherwise
