Dancing Barefoot and all the other covers that U2 has done are not on the digital box set, either because they didn't want it that way, or they couldn't due to not owning the copyrights of those songs.

They would've had to pay royalties to those artists, which equals less money for U2.......and they would've had to negotiate the rights with those artists, which I don't think they had enough time to do if they wanted to release the boxed set on the same day as HTDAAB........

thats quite a qualified statement. What with all your support and such. Especially in this topic on the merits of Happiness is a Warm Gun.

yeah, funny...(!)

It's pretty qualified in my opinion, I'm just saying it's a good thing that piece of crap wasn't staining the box set!

Hmm. Well then I think Red Light stains it, too.

Funny, I'd never really listened to Dancing Barefoot, and then the film THREESOME was on the telly the other night, and I suddenly noticed it's part of it's soundtrack.

Think it's one that will grow on me for sure
