ASOH: This song was not actually recorded live, but during a soundcheck prior to U2's show at London's Wembley Arena on November 15, 1984. The sound of the crowd was added later.
BAD: This song was recorded live, but not in America. It's from U2's show November 12, 1984 in Birmingham, England. During this live version, Edge misplayed the very last guitar note of the song but the band decided to use the song anyway. The last note was "fixed" during mixing of the EP.

Despite having some beautiful songs, this album is among my least favorite by U2, which is why the number here may seem low.
