Wasn't the basic riff of the song, founded during the Zooropa days? But just not used properly until 95?

Totally Aardvark.

It was recorded in the Zooropa sessions. As were another 7-8 tracks that were not used. What most of them are remain a mystery except.

If You Wear The Velvet Dress, Hold Me Kill Me Kiss Me Thrill Me & Wake Up Dead Man - however we know were in the pipeline for U2. This is because portions of there titles are the almost unreadable letters on the Zooropa cover (Along with the Wanderer).

As to why HMKMKMTM is always put on peoples copies of Zooropa or Pop I have not idea. It also baffles me how people keep regurgitating 80's b-sides and try and concieve some new long lost albums. I just try and steer clear of those threads...

this is all very interesting...however it makes you look at POP in a whole different way being as though it wasnt written FOR it.

Yeah it does I suppose. The bizzare thing is some people sight IGWSHA as an example of an unfinished song on Pop... yet they had the base material back in '93. How long did they want?

However rumours have it COBL was a product of the Pop sessions so you win some and lose some.

Okay, I gotta ask. I keep seeing people refer to this...where on earth does the Zooropa cover show song titles? I have stared at mine until I felt like I was going blind, and I have yet to see any words.

i like them, although maybe that's just because i've been doing similar things for years.

btw, here's a full version of the zooropa cover with the writing. i suck at the whole trying to write with my mouse thing. but you get the gist of it.

Both Slow Dancing and HMTMKMKM were intended for Zooropa and were pulled in order to make the album more experimental and less guitar orientated.

I’ve always put Slow Dancing after Stay which makes “Side One” end quietly and then totally wake the listener up with HMTMKMKM opening “Side Two”.

It just adds some interesting layers to an already interesting album.

Holy shit! I had no idea about those subliminal messages on the Zooropa cover. I just thought it was some really freaky artwork. lol. So all those songs were already written back then.

edit: By the way, I don't like putting Hold Me Thrill Me in a Zooropa playlist either cos it just DOES NOT fit. It fits better on Achtung.

I personally think it fits best on Pop, a perfect counterpart to Discotheque and Gone, thematically that is

Yeah, I agree it doesn't fit in Zooropa but it would sound really well in Pop.
