*edit*

The also played "The Saints Are Coming" earlier this morning. They are a pretty good station.
While on my lunch hour, I heard "A Sort Of Homecoming". I seriously love them.

I've heard several stations in the Boston area like Mix 98.5 and 104.1 WBCN play it more than once.

I've caught it on the radio once or twice.

but I'll cut the radio stations in my area some slack, I truly believe they're forced to play Nickelback and Gwen Stefani at gunpoint.

It's the only possible explanation.

One of the main Toronto stations usually gives u2 some pretty good airtime, and I've heard WITS innumerous times.

"Windows" is on the list for VH1's countdown show but hasn't made it into the countdown yet. Vote for it here.

WITS is no. 1 in the charts here after being in it for 2 weeks now (no. 3 last week)

quite a smart thing tho, releasing three different singles... since some geeks like me buy all three, and therfore they get higher in the charts!

Radio 538 plays it a lot but they also play saints aswell, and MTV and TMF play both videos often!
WITS is no. 1 in the Mega Top 50.

ah, in the top 40 now aswell...

Interesting thing tho, U2 have only had 4 no. 1 hits here... first was Beautiful Day and Elevation... now Saints and WITS.... two consecutive singles

and they've only been able to hold on the no. 1 spot for two weeks sadly... I hope WITS will break this since Saints got kicked off by the damn Coole Piet song!

I've heard it a few times on XM radio flight 26. XM may play it on some of their other stations, but not any other ones I listen to.
