What makes this a negativityfest? There is no insanity in this thread. I think it is an insult to the people who shared their thoughts in this thread to say that this thread I started is "insane."

Cheers,

i agree, therefore, i pose a better question:

I didn't say it was insane. I just think this has the potential to incite some pretty nasty stuff. I will not, however, be adding any fuel to the fire. But to me it's just an excuse to talk about U2 songs you hate, and we get plenty of those threads as it is

Ha ha! This is the best thread I've come across in AGES on Interference! I can't really argue for the songs as it's everyone's opinion etc...and It'd be suicide to try and convince someone they're wrong just because of their personal taste...

I personally feel this way-

Singles-

When Love Comes to Town

Album Tracks-

Grace (I don't hate the track, I think it's great and actually ends 'All that you Can't Leave Behind' nicely...but it's not the greatest of tunes and something in it's place may have been a better idea...!)

Actually, I never think of these specific songs as B-sides. However, songs that weren't released as singles such as Playboy Mansion, Red Hill Mining Town, Acrobat and The First Time feel a lot like B-Side material to me.

Mofo is a great tune, but it was not a good representation of the album Pop, nor was it a good representation of techno or dance. Should not have ever been a single, regardless that I like it.

Also, I've always wondered why "Out Of Control" was their first single, even though "I Will Follow" was the commercial success of "Boy". Out of Control is one of my very favorite U2 songs, but still...

What about you guys? I know this is quite extreme. I'm sure many of you have a list of album songs that you felt should have been b-sides. But do you have a list of singles that you felt actually didn't even belong in the album and should have been a b-side?

Cheers,

Lemon is on my top 10 fave U2 songs.

All other three are faves too.

MoFo was a single? I mean, I know it was released on a CD with a bunch of rancid remizes, but did it actually get play anywhere? Discotheque is the only Pop song I ever heard anywhere other than my Pop CD.

Mofo is a single on both CD and vinyl.
