Replace a JT song

I saw somebody do this with AB, so how about JT? I never liked Mothers of the Disappeared and thought it sounded like it didn't belong on the album. I think Hearltland goes so well with the theme of the album and would fit in good with In God's Country and Red Hill Mining Town. What song would you like to vote off JT and what would you replace it with?

Trip Through Your Wires probably.

It's perfect as it is, but I'd replace Red Hill Mining Town with Heartland if forced to choose.

I like Trip Through Your Wires, but if you were going to force me to choose that's the one I would replace. It would be a lot more at home on Rattle and Hum. I'd never considered it before, but I think Heartland would be a good candidate to replace it.

I can't imagine TJT without Mothers of the Disappeared as the closer. I think it fits in perfectly with the rest of the songs.

Pick any song you'd like, and replace it with Spanish Eyes of course.

I'd replace "In God's Country" by "Spanish Eyes"

Hard question -

But I'll have to say I'd replace "In God's Country" with "Luminous times (hold on to love)". Oh lordy that would be great. I also considered replacing it with "hawkmoon 269" ... it would surely fire the album up some, and it would definately stand out with its style and all. But I'll stick with the original:

"In God's Country" with "Luminous Times".

Weren't threads like this closed in the past because of fear certain songs would have their feelings hurt?

Um, I never really loved BTBS much. But it fits in with the theme of the album. I'd take off Red Hill Mining Town.

I wouldn't change a thing. JT is the only U2 album that is perfect from start to finish.

Take off MOTD and replace it with AIWIY. and Trade TTYW with Heartland and you have a better album than AB.

I'd throw away Trip Through Your Wires and Exit. And the studio Bullet... sounds kinda dull compared to the live version.

Trade MOTD for Spanish Eyes. I love Trip through your Wires and In God's Country, why do so many people want to throw those away?:question:

everyone's idea of Heartland is really good...although I think Spanish eyes for "trip" is a cool idea. I never thought of "Trip" fitting better on Rattle and Hum but it totally makes sense. I could see it coming right after Desire in the track listing. I would put Spanish eyes on JT because it sort of feels like "Trip" but it doesn't have the country music feel.
