Am I alone in thinking the Vertigo version of Discotheque wasn't that great? The straight rock version took away a lot of the charm of the original.

I don't think they will ever again play a song off the PoP-album live

Such a great album and era in the band's history - and so many people just don't get it!



I do prefer the Popmart version to Vertigo. And the transition to If You Wear That Velvet Dress was... Heaven!

Vertigo Discotheque was pretty cool indeed, but I'd say the Popmart version was the definitive version of the song.

If they were to bring back a Pop song, however, I think Mofo, Gone, Please, and Last Night On Earth (in that order) are the most worthy candidates.

I wouldn't mind hearing just about any song from Pop (ok, maybe not Playboy Mansion) -- the only one I've heard live was a snippet of Wake Up Dead Man.

Considering the stage and its earnestness, I think The Playboy Mansion would go over like a lead zeppelin.

But imagine the epic arguments on here if Bono sung "Michael Jackson, history"!

Pop your popcorn now!

i completely disagree. not that it was so bad, but the popmart version struggled a bit to capture the song. It sounded like they were fighting the rhythm of the song. the vertigo version went with it instead of going against it.

It would also explain why they only did it twice.

Popmart and Elevation versions were better.
