Why not buy the CD single later?

The US doesn't get cd singles from U2.

Wow, it took 7 posts to get to someone posting logic.

Target opens at 8; I have to be at school at 8:10; it's 15 minute drive from Target to school.

I might be late.

I don't understand it either -- Fast Cars was not on the US Bomb CD, but you can download it from iTunes. Windows is on U218 but you can't download it.

I ordered the US CD/DVD combo because it was so much cheaper than buying the CD single and then the full CD. I got a notice from Amazon saying that the CD single -- which I had preordered -- had gone up in price from $10.95 to $12.95. I canceled because that made the CD/DVD combo a bargain by comparison.

I suspect all this has something to do with switching labels. Island doesn't want to get "stuck" with too much U2 backlist since they aren't going to spend any more money to promote them. I realize it's all supposed to be one big Universal family (no pun intended) but the advert budgets are set in advance and after his one, Island's advert $$$ for U2 are gone.

U218 was just posted in the US iTunes Store. Window in the Skies is available as an individual purchase in the US. In fact, the only song that is "album only" is "Smile."

Actually, its changed on iTunes and is now "Album Only" along with "TSAC" and Smile.

I'm going to get it off Limewire.

Don't be afraid you can't download it from u218.... wait for the single.... the single version is MUCH better!
I just got U218, and am cringing at some parts they changed!
There's additional guitar, that's good... but most of the strings are gone... and the 'I know I hurt you and made you cry' what's my favorite part on the single version, they changed it, and it sounds HORRIBLE! Bono sounds like he's about to puke!

I really liked the in-your-face effect of the single version, sadly it's gone now....

Yet they don't release singles in the US much anymore. I found it on a music blog site anyways.

Now all I need to find is the studio version of Saints and I'll be happy. And yes, I bought the live version for charity off iTunes.

I love U2 but I have no need for all the singles again, nor do I need live versions of songs I already have live versions of. I think I'm just going to get the 18 Videos DVD.

yeah, well the logic is flawed in thinking that waiting for the "SINGLE" on iTunes will be fruitful.

Notice the other "new" song on the compilation "The Saints Are Coming" has also been released as a single. And a CHARITY single, no less. And yet where is the studio version on iTunes besides as an "album only" download with U218?

Nowhere. If you want the studio version, the SINGLE version, the non-live version of The Saints Are Coming in iTunes in the US, you HAVE to buy U218 (International Version) for 9.99 or (Deluxe Version) for 19.99.

So... sorry, but: NO. Waiting for the digital single release is a fruitless and futile endeavor. Window In The Skies, I am betting, will stay an "Album Only" download. Just like its sister song The Saints Are Coming.

For a limited time, I have no doubt they will be album-only (makes commercial sense) but in time, they will probably be available separately. Perhaps after WITS ships as a single.
