Complete U2 - What's Missing

I think it would be useful to start a thread of songs missing from the apple's version of the complete u2. We already have a list of 446+/- songs.

This will give everyone a chance to compare their own catalog with the true "COMPLETE U2", and see what they still need to get a hold of.

You can include cover tunes, and other songs you feel fit the category.

I'll start, and will add more when i have a chance to look over the list of 446....


Mercy
Everlasting Love
Unchained Melody
Neon Lights

I think they should have put a Zoo TV show in there.

All these you mentioned are COVERS. I'm kinda glad that U2 and Apple didn't feature covers on the box set, as far as I know(but maybe I am wrong), with the exception of the excellent Night and Day, who has only the lyrics in common with the original version.

Mercy and American Prayer are originals, but I don't think Mercy was officially released, yet.

The majority of b-sides that are missing are covers. Not every publisher has a deal with I-Tunes and regardless of it being U2's version they dont have to allow those.

As for Mercy, it hasnt even been released yet. Until its released officially dont expect to see it anywhere except on through leaks like we have.

Wasnt American Prayer a soundtrack song? Im not familiar with the background to it but it may have been on a release and U2 gave up the rights to it and the current publisher may not have a deal with Itunes.

It really is complete, aside from some omissions and a real lack of anything to draw the longtime fan in. Sure, some will buy it but seriously when you can rip it yourself at a higher better bitrate and already own the majority of the material buying it off Itunes makes no sense. Its not illegal to rip your own MP3s if you own the albums.

There are some live collaborations w/other bands - i.e. - acoustic version of One with R.E.M., I Got You Under My Skin w/Sinatra (Bono only), also just though of "The First Time" from Million Dollar Hotel - even though it's instrumental. Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me from Batman soundtrack isn't here.

Obviously they can't include Live Aid since it's being marketed separately.

A friend of mine in the industry was telling me recently about the weird rules re: licensing for like, cover songs, etc. - I think it probably has to do with that - the covers not being in the Complete box.

Also, when other labels and/or other A&R teams are involved sometimes you can't get the rights to do things that you've done for other projects. Like, "Hold Me Thrill Me" is on there as part of the Best Of, but not as being from Batman.

The Smashing Pumpkins DVD was the same way - it's the "Complete" videos, and it is, with the exception of ONE - "End is The Beginning Is The End," which was done for a different label as part of a soundtrack project. Things like that often "don't count" in things like the Complete U2, items of that nature.

I don't think any of those songs - American Prayer, Amandla, 46664 - have been officially released.

They were performed at that one concert, which was released as a three-part album. I doubt we'll ever see studio versions of them.

They're solo projects anyway, so they don't count.

It would have been cool to see the Captive Soundtrack on there.

Full Metal Jacket became the song we've come to know and love as Vertigo I do believe.

Exactly.

I want more live stuff.

Elevation, Boston would be fine, on MP3?
The Slane Concert 2001?
ZooTV?
Rattle And Hum DVD tracks?

Where is it?
