it could be some of the remixes that were only made available on some of the imports...like Stuck (acoustic) and the Walk On single version.

This band and their management have become masters at marketing I swear. I am convinced no other band provides their fans with more material than U2 anyway.

Hrm. Just don't know how I feel about this yet.

I nearly pished myself when I saw those Tarjay Destiny's Child commercials. We'll see. Not that my input matters! lol!

Hmmm....

Interesting. But Jan. 22 is way too early for a release date if this is only a rumor. I'd like to see them re-record some of their older hits though. Think how cool I Will Follow would sound redone. Or Bad!

I agree. That's only 2 weeks away! I'm sure there would have been more information about it yet. If you see how much in advance tracklistings and release dates of albums and singles are known, then it strikes me as odd that nothing is known yet, should the rumour be true.

Erm... no. I like them the way they are recorded now and for a different version I listen to a concert (as many songs really come alive in a live setting). I think the songs were recorded right the first time, so don't mess with it.

C ya!

Guess who's hooking us up with Target contraband? We'll be out back with the black van with no windows-- just throw the boxes of CDs in when we drive up.

Q. Why are there no Wal-Marts in Afghanistan?

A. Because there's a Target on every corner.

That's cool (there's a Tarjay close to me), so long as the cover is not a bunch of those red bullseyes or that Spuds Mackenziesque dog with the red bullseye around his eye!

HJ, they are a large chain of retail stores that sell a variety of things...very similar to Walmart or K-mart. Usually seen as a bit more upscale than either of those two chains tho.

Don't EVER compare Target with WalMart or K-Mart again...blasphemous...you will now lose your Minnesota I.D. card.

If this is true (I'm tracking down some friends who work at Target Corp. headquarters), cheers to another Minn. retail chain (Best Buy) doing a cool promotion with the world's best band!

Am I really the only one more than a little turned off by this sort of thing? First Best Buy got the Elevation DVD two weeks before the rest, including the mom and pop stores. Now this "rare remix" CD is for sale only at Target. I don't think I like the idea of U2 catering so much to big business stores. It's not as if the stores need the extra money, and its not as if the band needs extra promotion at this point.

I saw some inquiries, so I'll set it straight. Target is a subsidiary of K-Mart corporation, but it is much more successful than the K-Mart store chain.

Well, if this CD is for real, I'll be buying it for sure.
