Just to clarify, is Tightrope still a thing or possibility of a 12th song? And/or Civilization? Or was civilization another name for Blackout?
Also, i find it strange that The Lights of Home keeps being mentioned as a favorite by Bono and Edge, yet i think i remember people that have heard it weren't impressed.

Unpopular opinion: Boots is in my top half of U2 songs.

Unpopular opinion: The only thing Boots did wrong are those awful throat noises.

Tightrope hasn't been mentioned for a good 18 months or so.. I'd say it's out, along with Instrument Flying, maybe Much More Better?

Same with Civ - which definitely sounds like what we know as Blackout (massive drum roll, references to extinction level events, democracy, etc)

if we're getting 12 songs though, there's another to be announced

My impression was that Tightrope and Civilization were both proto-Blackouts.

FYI Where Shadows Fall is Just Bono and Willie Nelson, and we'll hear it if Waiting for the Miracle to Come ever gets a release date

Didn't we remember a 12th active song title in the previous thread?

"Civilisation" was being worked on during Innocence + Experience Tour rehearsals in Apr/May 2015.

"Tightrope" was apparently written around the time the Entertainment Weekly article mentioning it in Oct 2015 was written.

Would love to hear that since Slow Dancin is one of my favorite tunes.
Willie and Bono would sound nice as on an "experience" album. Maybe a bonus track

I left out Much More Better, and Landlady. Neither has been mentioned by band or legit press since Feb 2016 Mojo feature. Everything else has been mentioned in last 12 months
