what about the songs that were left off ATYCLB?
someone talked abt 'bulldozer' and 'origin of the species'(which actually emerged during POP session), but no one mentioned 'home'(the stand out track) and 'stir my soul'(the opening track)

Stir My Soul=Beautiful Day
Home=Walk On

Home was mentioned, I believe by Lanois as being one of 2 songs that merged to become Walk On. "Home, hard to know what it is if you've never had one....Home, I can't say what it is but I know I'm going home, it's where the hurt is"

Stir My Soul, in that article sounds exactly like Beautiful Day, it even describes the opening keyboard notes. Obviously the lyrics and song title ended up changing.

People often take these song titles and run with them, but the truth is that most of them end up part of another song or just renamed all together.

The finest example is in the Salome outakes, which has parts of Ultraviolet and Until the End OTW in the same song (jam).

There's been alot of talk here and there about Bulldozer resurfacing for this album. But I think this is just rumor.

I can't seem to remember any mention of it in any of the new album news we've been hearing.
Can anyone remember a recent mention of Bulldozer? I don't think there is one.

Good question.

Bono remarked about it being one of the songs that didn't quite make the cut, but I don't think he specifically mentioned that it didn't turn into a different song.

My opinion is that as "Always", is a seperate song into itself, it is obviously a precursor to what became "Beautiful Day".
And I think while "Bulldozer" is probably seperate song into itself, it might be a precursor to "Elevation". So I am guessing it doesn't make the new album.

You can also see this in "Lady With the Spinning Head" as it ended up becoming "The Fly" and it even contains the intro to "Ultraviolet"

That's my guess based on what I have read and I could be wrong, but what is the reason for leaving it off ATYCLB?

I think they felt they could rework it into something totally seperate from Elevation, and they may have, but I am not betting on it.

The very original 'Lady With A Spinning Head' (Take You Down)also had part of the Ultra Violet Guitar riff.... That particular track transformed quite a bit to become LWASH, so I think you could say it spawned 3 songs. But Damn I love the the Original version. That is "Take You Down".

Would'nt it be cool to hear some precursor tracks to the new that would be mindnumbing stuff to hear!!!!!!!!!!
