Chances of a third "Best Of"

Okay, so obviously U2 is going to release at least one more compilation album in the future, with a band as big as them it's unavoidable. My question is, will we get another Best Of that's done in the same style as the first two? The reason I'm asking is because I remember people speculating that they released U218 to fulfill their contract obligation with Island Records for three Best Of compilations...or something like that (I have no idea if that's actually true). I personally would really love to see another best of consisting of material only from 2000-2010 and using the same artwork scheme as the first two. It would just be cool to have a trilogy, imo. What do you guys think?

Id like them to hold off on any Best Ofs for at least another 10 years. Time to make new music now

There will be a "The Best of 2000-2010." Not sure when, though.

best of 80-90 was out in 98, so they dont have to jump on it immediately after the decade ends... one more new album first (after this one) then the best-of

I think it depends on what they do in 2010. I think it'll come out during their first break of the next decade.

I for one am hoping for another album (new U2, or the band's Spiderman recordings) later this year, so that could help fill out a new best of. I hope they aren't going to release another compilation any time soon, though.

If they even talk about making a third Best Of anytime soon, I'll fly to Dublin, get a hold of Paul McGuinness and punch him in the gut repeatedly until he drops the idea.

Somewhat. Other than those two, I think that whole list is possible.

if they actually use two songs from their greatest hits cd to fill out their "best of" cd that would be incredibly lame

I wonder if they'd put songs on that were specifically created for other greatest hits albums, eg THTBA, Electrical Storm, and WITS.

Although, unfortunately, especially the former two are two of the decade's best songs.

What's even lamer is that THTBA was just a relatively recent soundtrack number, nothing special...and wasn't Electrical Storm rushed out after that broadcast demo started circulating?
Nothing from this decade should have made the 90s best of. Where was Lemon, Mofo, the single mix of Please, even a polished Goldeneye if they cared about covering all their various projects?

It is my firm belief that the band should have just released an EP in 2006 instead of U218. Put Mercy on it since it was circulating anyway, WITS, Saints, Fast Cars because more people need to hear it. Scrap together two or three more songs and that would've sold for the holiday season. A best of this decade may be more appropriate then.

That's why I got pissed off when U218 was released...it was just like, "Do we really need this?". Also, I totally agree that the material from ATYCLB shouldn't have been included on 1990-2000. I assume they thought it wold help boost the sales...and they were probably right.

Best of 1990-2000 should have actually represented '90s U2. Sadly, it really didn't.

My picks:

DISC 1

Zoo Station
Even Better Than The Real Thing
One
Until The End Of The World
The Fly
Mysterious Ways
Numb
Lemon
Stay
Hold Me Thrill Me Kiss Me Kill Me
Miss Sarajevo
Your Blue Room
Discotheque
Staring At The Sun
Gone
Please

DISC 2

Night And Day
Alex Descends into Hell for a Bottle of Milk / Korova 1
Lady With The Spinning Head (Extended Dance Remix)
Satellite Of Love
Salome
Where Did It All Go Wrong?
I've Got You Under My Skin
Slow Dancing
Holy Joe (Garage Mix)
North and South of the River
I'm Not Your Baby
Two Shots of Happy, One Shot of Sad
The Fly (Lounge Fly Mix)
Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses (The Temple Bar Remix)
Lemon (Perfecto Mix)
Bottoms (Watashitachi No Ookina Yume)

32 songs. Only a handful of remixes, all on the second disc. If any of the above tracks need to be cut for time, remove Your Blue Room from disc 1 and I'm Not Your Baby from disc 2.
