According to a radio station in Toronto, Kite is the "latest release from ATYCLB."

Ummmm! Can't they do Kite/In A Little While like they did with Walk On/Stuck?

I would have picked In A Little While, but right now the whole world seems in a different mood so I'll go for KITE.

all this THAT

I think Edge said in an interview Kite was "too slow" to be a single.

Personally, i think Kite deserves to be a single, as it is a very powerful song.
My second choice is In a little while.

"It's about finding your way into the music." - Edge

"Something inside said this could be everything in your life." - Bono

"U2 as a band does things nobody one else can. I think that is a very powerful thing." - Larry

"Adam believed in the band before anyone did." - Bono

I think IALW has a good chance of doing very well as a single.. as great as Kite is, it's still in the same vein as Walk On and Stuck.. the slow,powerful rock ballad. People might get tired of that type of music from U2.. and if people like those previously mentioned songs, they might have already bought the album.. IALW will appeal to a different bunch of fans.

WILATW would be great. It's never been played live to my knowledge & it would be cool if they put it out after the tour ends. I think it would sound very fresh. Maybe a video as well..

In A Little While!

Great little hook, overall a very catchy tune. It has radio potential. Much as I hate to say, WILATW and Kite are just too slow for American radio.

Change is the only constant

I know it might seem like it's connected to the Sept 11th thing, but I think they should release New York as the next single. It's got some groovy lyrics and a rocking chorus. Plus they could make a single mix or something similar to what they did for the POP singles. I think New York has the biggest potential to be a hit of anything that is left on ATYCLB. I think Kite, as Edge said, is too slow, In a Little While is too jangly of a tune and would have been better as a summer release and lets not even discuss Wild Honey.

JJJ radio station in Australia must of thought Wild Honey was suitable enough to be played on air. Coz they did exactly that when All That You Can't Leave Behind was released.

KITE might be the best song on the album, but IMO I don't think it is a single. IN A LITTLE WHILE would be the best choice. I think it is unforunate that it was not released during the tour when they had the momentum although there could be another chapter if the album gets a lot of Grammy nominations.

Remember, last year's Grammy awards were only for the single Beautiful Day--the rest of the album was not eligible. I think what they did by flip-flopping the releases of WALK ON and Stuck In A Moment... in different countries was a mistake. Being that we all live in a global village, it created the feeling that both singles were out at the same time. I mean I got an email last week from announcing the European release of WALK ON and I am thinking I have been hearing this song on the radio for a year. Yes, I understand that the airplay was different in each country but it just seemed to me that STUCK and WALK ON were out as singles for a year with nothing new. I mean they played LENO last week and played WALK ON and I am thinking I thought STUCK was the U.S single. Anyway, it was a great performance, and WALK ON Is a better song anyway. Also, the U.S videos for WALK ON and STUCK were two of the worst videos I have ever seen. What's even worse is that they had European videos for WALK ON and STUCK that were great(the European STUCK video is one of the best videos I have ever seen). Bad marketing IMO. There is hope though; POP had 5 singles released:

Staring At The Sun
Last Night On Earth
If God Will Send His Angels
