My favorite (not in any particular order) are:

2. Always
3. Lady With the Spinning Head
4. Are You Gonna Wait Forever
5. The Three Sunrises
6. Holy Joe (Garage Mix)
7. Summer Rain
8. Slow Dancing
9. Fortunate Son
10. Hallelujah, Here She Comes


A nice mix of 80's and 90's and 00's, I'm noticing.

Your U2 fan licence has been revoked. Everyone is meant to hate that cover.



Actually, personally, I think much of the trashing of Fortunate Son should be redirected at the studio version of Party Girl. Now if ever there were a bad example of Bono singing, that's it!

No order

- The Three Sunrises
- Love Comes Tumbling
- Salome
- Lady With the Spinning Head (Original/Extended Dance Mix, whichever.)
- Boomerang I
- Things To Make And Do
- Endless Deep
- Treasure (Whatever Happened to Pete The Chop?)
- Spanish Eyes
- J. Swallow

I'm sure mine changes weekly and god dammit, seeing 'Touch' in Axver's list makes me want to add it. Great track but I think I'd just be copying someone else putting it in my list or I'd replace something I'd regret...

I think U2's Neon Lights cover is just dandy. Do I get to keep my license?

You never got a licence in the first place, Mr UF Heretic.

[I don't know why people are including "Levitate", "Xanax & Wine", "Mercy". Those are outtakes, not b-sides. If so, they would've been comercially released... on singles.]

sigh. here we go again.

People are including them because they aren't nitpicking High Fidelity-ers. In conversational discussion a B Side isn't as rigid a term as everyone makes it out to be.

And because they are great songs and technically, if you don't include Live tracks or remixes, U2 has only released 5 B Sides this decade.

A fan's gotta do what a fan's gotta do. I count Mercy, Levitate and Smile as B Sides the band just wasn't smart enough to include on a single.

Not that singles really ever come out anymore.

My favorite b-sides are

Red Light *
Two Hearts Beat As One **
4th Of July #
MLK ##
Running To Stand Still %
Bullet The Blue Sky %
Love Is Blindness +
Your Blue Room ++

*(from Japan 7' of Sunday Bloody Sunday)
**(Fron German "40" single)
# (From Pride Single)
## (From The Unforgettable Fire Australia 7")
% (From In God's Country US Single / One Tree Hill New Zealand Single)
+ (From Numb Video Single)
++ (From Staring At The Sun Single)
