ah thanks! found it online.. i had seen that once a long time ago, but never knew whether is was 'official'- i love the way they mixed the ZooTv footage with the other imagery- definitely their most chilling closer (until and except for Dead Man)

the carp hovering above that submerged car- wow.

takes me right back to the ZooTv era.

I could be wrong but I think Red Hill Mining Town is the infamous video that was directed by Neil Jordon (The Crying Game, The Butcher's Wife) which has never surfaced.

I know I've seen still shots from the video shoot, but I think the actual video has never been released. (Though it wouldn't surprise me if there are a few fans out there who've managed to get their hands on it. )

What I've read is they only shot a few scenes, but never finished it.

I'd like to see them make a good video again, something that hasn't been done since what? 1998?

I think STUCK IN A MOMENT's truck video is great...


and COBLs should've been more... I don't know... like a look-at-our-show video... the slow motions, the great moments from the band, the crowd filling the arena...

all we got was a dark thing...

Videos are good when they seem to have a sort of storyline. Like LNOE. Although I don't understand it.

The van version was pretty damn decent. The football version was just weird. I can't watch it. It's too damn stupid (but I may be biased because I loathe American football.)



The band seem to be relying too heavily on straightforward performance videos. Yeah, we get it, live is where they live, but it actually makes the music videos themselves boring (I'm looking at you, Vertigo video, all the nifty special effects in the world can't make you interesting.) I miss the days of cinematic music videos. Videos that tell stories. They seem to be becoming rarer and rarer these days as bands go for big eyecatchy gimmicks to garner attention from teenagers.
Though I should point out that two of the best cinematic music videos I've seen in the last few years are the video for by The Killers, and especially the video for by My Chemical Romance. Say what you will about the band (I'm sure they have very few fans here ) but the video is quite awesome.

My big unattainable dream is to direct music videos, so this is a topic I could go on about for days. Often I'll listen to a song and completely imagine the video I would make for it. I would suggest that U2 come to me (haha) but honestly, I get very little inspiration from their songs. Maybe that's because U2 songs are too straightforward. Maybe it's because U2 videos never have anything to do with the song, I don't know.
The U2 songs that I've ever created videos for in my head are: Shadows and Tall Trees, Promenade, Exit, Zooropa, and If God Will Send His Angels (a different one... which you can read about here), Slow Dancing, and Walk to the Water. Five album tracks and two b-sides. Not a lot, considering that with most bands it's like almost every song. Maybe that's the problem, maybe music video directors can't get any inspiration out of U2 songs either

All that said, my favourite U2 videos in recent years have been Walk On (the regular version or "London version" as it's sometimes reffered to as, not the Brazil version), and Original of the Species. The former because I love the way people keep changing one to the other, to sort of show that people of all ages and races and walks of life go through the same shit, and hurt in the same ways, but can all 'walk on'. The latter because at least it's interesting (scary roboheads and all), which was a first for the HTDAAB videos.

I think one of the reasons that there aren't many great U2 videos is that the band seem to get to "hands on" and insist on footage of them playoing live is inserted. For example, the Anton Corbjin version of One would have been perfect, but the footage of them playing in Hansa, inserted on U2's insistence, spoils it for me.
The Vertigo video is terrible, they get two of the hottest video directors around and come up with that garbage! I think that if they had been given a brief that didn't entail "filming the band live" they would have come up with something much more interesting.
