It's whether or not a shorter version makes sense. You can't really call ISHFWILF just I Still Haven't Found; it's obviously incomplete. But why on earth you wouldn't use Stuck in a Moment, Crazy Tonight, The Best Thing, etc. is just beyond me.

No, I prefer not to puke in the morning.

I think they had already left the same restaurant earlier or something.

Youtube comments on YTBTAM are uncharacteristically positive. No matter how many U2 fans there are there's usually 5 haters ready to scream 'TAX EVASION' and 'BONO'S A FAT TWAT' and 'CRAP SINCE THE EIGHTIES'.
Perhaps the haters are all busy. Or perhaps outside of this cracked blue fishbowl the song is doing ok.

They were still inside and were escorted out by cops.

Bono took shelter inside restaurant during Bastille Day attack - NY Daily News

I remember comments about celebrities getting special treatment.

Interesting interview with Edge here. Talking about a mix of songs that were taken back and re-recorded as a band in the room as well as the ones that take advantage of all sorts of modern/technology-based sounds.
What worries me is that he thinks the best thing is a rocker!

Ah, good! The way he worded it had me wondering for a second...

The real excitement for me is what will the second song be that they play and how will the crowd react to TBT live.

Fun times!!

Oh totally. Hopefully they play Blackout so we have a better quality rip of the song than what was shared on Facebook.

All prime opportunities to ask if Bono is OK.
