i think miracle drug will surely be the 4th single, and love peace or else will be never released as single, though it would rock, i hope they'll release it! but actually there's 12 singles!

OOTS is a great pop song, with all the makings of a huge single. it will get a lot of airplay.

I don't think they're daring enough to release Love And Peace Or Else. It won't be 'commercial' enough.

I don't Miracle Drug will be a single. Original of the Species, but it would be nice having the strings edited away, more radio-friendly, and less overproduced.

I never understood this, but why does a song have to be a single to be played on the radio? Why can't they just have the whole album at radio stations, so they can play any song from it?

I've heard a lot of stories before on that it was a shame that Until the End of the World wasn't released as a single because it would have made a great radio song. But the other day I did hear it on the radio.

City of Blinding Lights... Everyone I've played it to likes it a lot! If it doesn't become a single (which I doubt), they should release as a single in NYC only (j/k). Or at least release the live NYC version as a b-side, because it kicked ass!

Original of the Species/Miracle Drug should also be singles... just not before City of Blinding Lights.

Personally i would love to see fast cars as a single. However i think it will be Original of the Species, which is my second favourite song on the album after fast cars.

When all is said and done in a couple of years, Original of the Species will be the biggest hit single remembered off the Bomb. I'm taking that to Vegas.

I still believe that if miracle drug is released as a single, it coud become U2's biggest hit off the bomb.

I thought we'd established on here previously that COBL as the third single was a done deal as it would be released in March to coincide with 25 years since they signed their record deal.

From "March 24, 1980: U2 sign with Island Records

U2 sign first international recording contract with Island Records. Four years, four albums, with three singles to be released in the first year. Contract calls for the band's debut album to be recorded in August for an October release. The deal is binding for all territories except Ireland. In the U.S., U2 will be distributed on the Warner label. Negotiations with CBS, A&M, and EMI had fallen through. Bill Stewart of Island made the offer in dressing room after U2's concert at National Stadium."

However I believe the 24th falls on a Thursday this year which wouldn't be much good.

Miracle Drug is my favourite on the album right now...but in terms of trying to lure more people to buy the album, COBL is a better bet.

"Original of the Species" can't be ruled out because it could fit well on radio.......and "A Man And A Woman" could do well on Adult Top 40 stations........I don't know, there's really a lot of potential singles on this album.
