heh, yeah. never clicked for me, either.

it's probably just sloppy workmanship that the track info is out here. it's surely no coincidence that the big leak came from australia.

I really want to hear the Led Zeppelin sounding song that was in the several video clips we got from Fez.

Well, NLOTH2 is out on CD singles. So that makes it a non-exclusive for iTunes. The Unreleased and rare tracks such as Love You Like Mad can be considered an exclusive imho.

Someone over at @U2 as saying 'Lead Me In The Way I Should Go' would be a bonus track.

I'm interested in 'Every Breaking Wave' myself, it was described as being WOWY-esque.

I think what Itunes means by exclusive is that no other copy of NLOTH would have the songs on it. So, it really wouldn't matter if it's on a single or not.

I say this because other bands Itunes exclusive tracks have at times been available on singles and on other available discs.

That Larryinthestudio clip if definitely an early version of Magnificent so it can't be Mercy, but I'm going to set Interference on fire for a minute .....

Magnificent is Mercy reworked!!!! Look at the lyric references between the two "only love", "I'm born again", etc. etc.

was drinking some wine... and it turned to blood
What's the use of religion... if you're any good
I know i'm weedkiller honey... and you're sugar
If you're the prosecution... i get away with murder
If you were ice... i'm water
And with your telescope... i can see further
We're binary code... a one and a zero
You wanted violins... and you got nero
You're gravity... searching for the ground
You're silence... searching for a sound
Your heart is aching... your heart is my home
It's fascinating... i know i'll never be alone
When I was ripping the stitches
Without two cents to rub
I'm digging the ditches
Of someone else's luck
Love is when i lie
Love puts the blue back in my eye
Love will come again
I'll be gone again... again
If you're hunger... baby let me feed it
If your heart is full... baby let me bleed it
And happiness is for... those who don't really need it
You love me... too much
You always loved me... too much
When I was ripping the stitches
Without two cents to rub
I'm in the ditches
Of someone else's luck
Love is when i lie
Love puts the blue back in my eye
Love has come again
I am gone again
Love's got to be with the weak
Only then love gets a chance to speak
Love will come again
I'll be gone again... again
I... i can't escape myself
I hear you talk
Feeling nothing
I fear nothing
Feel....
I can hear so much
Fear nothing
I feel so much
Fear... nothing
Love has come again
I am gone again
Love is the end of history
The enemy of misery
Love has come again
I am gone again
Love is justice, not charity
Love brings with it a clarity
Love has come again
I'm alive again
Alive...
I am alive, baby i'm born again and again
And again, and again and again and again
Again

I've broken the code and now everyone can be happy bc almost everyone loves Magnificent!!

I'm hoping the exclusives are truly exclusives that aren't available on singles, etc. and the bonus is truly a bonus!

My 2nd to last comment sounds confusing, it can't be Mercy as we all know it today, I think it could have evolved into Magnificent!

So are these iTunes only... as opposed to the 5 versions of the album we can get...

I don't know what to get. I just found the deluxe edition of HTDAAB and I forgot I had it...didn't even watch the DVD... I always buy the special stuff and never really take advantage.

So if I'm right there are like 7 versions if you count iTunes 2 versions which are annoying in itself.

You may be right, but I don't see how the larryinstudio clip is an early version of Magnificent.

Sorry about that ndmaxfield, I was thinking of another clip where Larry is in his "chamber" and he's doing some fierce drumming while Lanois and Bono look on.

oh really? so those were Australian dollars...makes sense

well, that's cool

Magnificent and Mercy are two completely different kinds of songs. There are some lyrical comparisons but Magnificent is pure joy. Mercy is a lot darker and more atmospheric.

Agree about the moods, I'm thinking Magnificent is what Mercy wanted to be bc I see joy in Mercy's chorus, sort of a sweeping upbeat vibe "love will come again, I am born again", but we'll probably never know....

Mercy is, indeed, darker and more atmospheric. My theory since day one is that they've replaced Edge's continuous two-note electric guitar sequence in the background of the original song with acoustic guitar strumming, and Adam's original bass guitar with what Lanois says (if you listen closely) sounds like a "mariaci band"-sounding bassline in this clip (http://media.u2.com/flash/highlights/larryinstudio.swf). I've been most intrigued by this clip since they posted it last year, so I hope they actually used it.

If Magnificent is Mercy reworked they should have left it alone.
