City of Blinding Lights radio edit

According to u2tour.de, it is 4 minutes and 11 seconds long...
Looks like they are gonna massacre it pretty badly...

It's been played here in Boston and they haven't edited out the intro. But it hasn't been played as a single so maybe that's why.

In which case they will be making a bad song sound even worse.
I don't mean that to sound harsh, I just dislike that one song immensely, and have done ever since I first heard it.

<makes the obligatory "it's the best song since Heartland" quote to counter this>

Haven't listened to the radio so I haven't even had a chance to hear the edit. I hope they haven't destroyed it too much ...

With the great "single version" (like Please, Walk On... or Wild Horses), edited to sound more like the live vesion, with less "Disney" feel... and louder drums... it could be a real "classic".

Well, I love this song, and I hope they don't change it too much if it goes to radio as a single.

As daygloeyes2 said, it has been getting quite a bit of airplay in Boston in its original version, and that's fine with me.

They should have released Miracle Drug. It's more radio friendly.

I like Miracle Drug better but COBL is WAAAYY more radio friendly. It's faster and has a catchy chorus. Miracle Drug starts out kind of drearily.
