It's the 12th track on the Japanese CD.

Seriously, you consider it an ATYCLB song?

Each his own, of course, I just think of it as a Million Dollar Hotel song.

UHm, not just the japanese. Also the European and Australian cds. That's what I'd call the majority. So yeah, I consider it an ATYCLB song.

UK and Australian limited editions, so really the minority...

My Danish-bought ATYCLB ends at Grace, and so does the vast majority of ATYCLB albums out there.

I can see why you'd argue that Fast Cars is a HTDAAB song, but this is different. It was on the soundtrack for a movie, what was it, six months before ATYCLB was even released?

Bono didn't even write the lyrics.

Yet the song's credited as a U2 song. I don't see much of a difference between Fast Cars and TGBHF. Both are added songs that didn't end up on the US version, but most people still have it and as far as I was aware consider it part of the album.

the key difference is that the ground beneath her feet improves the album, whereas fast cars is just another noisy mess.

this.

it still baffles me why they expect the casual fans - the ones who make up the bulk of who they play to each night - to have the words to every new song memorised. i'm sure the casuals who saw them during the lovetown tour didn't know all the words to hawkmoon. their logic is fucked up.

and people in general not flipping out and singing along to the album tracks isn't how these casuals are reacting to their music, it's how they are in general. times have changed, now more than ever it's just about the single. listen to it off youtube, maybe buy it off itunes for a buck. occasionally a casual fan will become a bonafide fan and buy their albums, but for the most part these guys are coming to hear beautiful day, pride, and streets and that's all they're going to pay attention to.

i just wish they'd say "fuck it" and just do what they want. they recemented their place as a huge rock band again in 2000 and have stayed there. if nloth "flopping" with casual fans didn't kill it, them digging in their heels and continuing to play breathe, unknown caller, and nloth live sure as hell won't.

and yeah, i think tgbhf is an atyclb song. sure it's also on the m$h soundtrack and was on there first. buuuuuuuuut so was stay, it appeared on a soundtrack too and was even written for the film. the only difference here is stay appeared on zooropa no matter where you bought it. but this is just being silly and splitting hairs.

There's the thing you see. Most people don't have it. Of course, most U2 fans have it, but the majority of ATYCLB owners have probably never heard of it.

In addition, it doesn't sound like the rest of the album at all. It doesn't fit musically.

Of course, I love the song, and people can arrange their iTunes library however they want, but if you go down and buy a copy of ATYCLB, it's not on the album.

And, to get back to the discussion, I really miss NLOTH and Unknown Caller.
I really hope they'll resurface in the future. I also really enjoyed the 'busker version' of NLOTH, I don't understand why that was just a one-off. Here's to hoping for the next tour.

Shouldn't this read "i just wish they'd say "fuck it" and just do what I want."?

That's really all it comes down to with these discussions. People just want to hear different songs because they like them. The band is perfectly happy with these current variations of the setlist. I highly doubt they are going out there every night depressed that they have to play With Or Without You again, like people around here act. It's not like backstage they all embrace and say "oh how i wish we could play Indian Summer Sky, JUST ONCE!" They enjoy these songs obviously, why can't people just accept that?

Why would you need to go backstage to realize something like that? It's much easier to see that they are happy with the tour and the songs they are playing by watching them on stage. It's no secret at all. Unless someone wants to be cynical and say that it's all just an act to cover up some stifled musical freedom they aren't enjoying.

European countries, outside of UK, didn't have that song. So I don't think most people have it.
