Cover of Best of 1990-2000?

I wonder how the cover is going to be,

Here are some ideas:

1. The little "WAR" boy with Bono's fly shades digitally added
2. The image of the cosmonaut from "Zooropa" era
3. A simple picture of a fly sitting on a LEMON

It would be nice to have continuity by having the same gold color to the album.

Paul.

Completely a side-note.. am I the only one who noticed they flipped the colours that they used on the JT cover?

JT = background black, text gold
Best Of = background gold, text black

Fanatical observation.

I'm thinkin' they'll go with something very representative of the past ten years, just as (IMO) the first 'best of' cover seemed well suited for the first ten years. I don't think they'll use the same format (solid background with a pic) this time around. I think instead it's going to be very bright, explosive and busy looking. Hmmm, maybe somethin' with a grafitti look to it? I think the 'fly shades' have a definite possibility of making an appearance. Maybe a big collage including a lemon (by the way, does anyone think this song will make the next best of?) the fly shades, Edge's hat, a heart (of some sort possibly the suitcase version), a Trabant, the 'cosmonaut', a bit of static, a few bright colors...

Woo, I like all of those!

I think we should get a full size picture of Achtung Baby Adam (no shamrocks!)

I dunno. It should be a pic easily identifiable to an album, but something they've never used before. Cause the picture of the boy on the first Best Of is easily identifiable, but the picture is still new. (Well, it's at least new to us.)

The new Best Of should defintly look similar to the first one.

It will be a Lemon or something....cuz the whole 90's had a lemon they stepped out of...even for the pop tour...not for the zoo tv till 93...but all the songs are so fruity in the 90's and crazy that it'll represent...

from political to excess.

I predict a collage with the following included:

A lemon
A trabant
An arch
A video screen of some kind
Buffaloes
A fly
Some shades
A belly dancer
Adam naked...

You sure? My copy of the Best Of has gold background and WHITE text not black! Mind you I didn't buy it for a long time after it came out anyway as I already had all the songs so maybe I have the later version or vice versa
