Post your current version of Da Bomb!

It's been a while since we had one of these threads. And since the new album is not gonna be out till 2012, might as well play around with the last one.

Here's the version I'm digging right now...

1. City Of Blinding Lights
2. All Because Of You (alternate)
3. Native Son
4. Miracle Drug
5. Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own
6. Original Of The Species (single)
7. Yahweh (alternate)
8. Love And Peace Or Else
9. Fast Cars
10. A Man And A Woman
11. Crumbs From Your Table
12. Are You Gonna Wait Forever
13. One Step Closer
14. Mercy

The whole thing seperates pretty nicely into 7 tracks each on Side A and Side B. Screw that 11 songs bullshit! It starts with 3 upbeat songs and then goes mellow instead of the Vertigo-Miracle Drug non flow affair. I think Sometimes flows perfectly into OOTS just like in concert. Yahweh's alternate version is a lot better than the album one, to these ears. LAPOE starts side B leading into a couple of acoustic sounding songs. I was gonna include the Crumbs HQ version but it doesn't have that middle 8 which I like from the album version. Sure, it's a tad overproduced but I don't care, overall I like it. It's not nearly as badly overproduced as ABOY album version anyway. Then comes the underrated Vertigo B side followed by a song you could end the album with if you don't like Mercy. But I think Mercy is the perfect closer. So yeah... I think I'll burn this version for my car. It's a lot better than the actual album IMO.

I wish in the next tour they play YAHWEH, but like on the record... is somewhat rocker, but still uplifting...

go back to the thread

My version:

City of Blinding Lights (which would go straight into...)
Mercy (rework that song into something that builds up more with a nice Edge solo)
Xanax and Wine (I like this more than Fast Cars, but it needs to be recorded better)
Are You Gonna Wait Forever
Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own
Love and Peace Or Else
Crumbs from Your Table
All Because of You
Miracle Drug
A Man and a Woman

I would order it like this so it would not be so top heavy with the hard songs first and the softer ones on the B-side. I would also strip back a lot of the over production on the real album. With that, then you've got a great album.

My version:

1. A Sort Of Homecoming
2. Pride
3. Wire
4. The Unforgettable Fire
5. Promenade
6. 4th Of July
7. Bad
8. Indian Summer Sky
9. Elvis Presley And America
10. MLK

It sounds so much better without Vertigo and SYCMIOYO.

Ian McCulloch the U2 fan:
"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."

Vertigo (the natural opener -- uptempo, lead single, how could you start with anything else?)
Love and Peace or Else
City of Blinding Lights (completes the trifecta of starting with great songs, eg. Streets, Still Haven't Found, WoWY, though not nearly as great)
Miracle Drug
Sometimes You Can't Make it on Your Own
Mercy (finish side 1 with the best!)
All Because of You
A Man and a Woman
Crumbs From Your Table
Original of the Species (i never really liked One Step Closer -- sorry Bob)
Fast Cars

SMILE is missing in all of those lists.

I like the Yahweh alternative version, not so fond of the ABOY alternative version.

I'd include Fast Cars in the middle and agree with Mercy as final song.
