Help me decide what to put on the burned CDs (MikeP-did you get my email?)

I was thinking:

1. Walk to the water
2. Spanish eyes
3. Luminous times
4. Sweetest thing 87' version
5. (Deep in the heart?)
6. Everlasting love
7. Unchained melody
8. (Halleluiah here she comes?)
9. (A room at the heartbreak hotel?)
10. Lady with the spinning head
11. (Fortunate son?)
12. (Lady with the spinning head?)
13. (Alex descends into hell for a bottle of Vodka Korova?)
14. (Salome?)
15. (Where did it all go wrong?)
16. Night & day
17. Who's gonna ride your wild horses (Temple bar version-the piano and acoustics as featured in the video)
18. So cruel from Zoocoustic
19. (Dreaming with tears in my eyes?)
20. She's a mystery to me (U2 version)

21. (if needed for filling up space on CD)
New day (Bono and Wyclef Jean)
22. I've got you under my skin (Bono and Frank Sinatra)


But the problem is, from all these songs, i know numbers 6,7, bits of 16, obviously 17 and 18 (the album versions anyway), 20 (Roy Orbison's version), 21 and 22.

But i'm lost when it comes to other songs-especially the ones i wrote in brackets and question marks. Are those any good?
Or should i skip those and go with the rest-which still makes 13 songs? (i take it the JT B-sides and Lady with the spinning head are really good, since everyone is praising them).

You need Holy Joe on there, assuming you haven't got it already.

well get the holy joe remix then!

seems like you prefer the 80s style U2.

If you like the music to the fly and ultraviolet, then get lady with the spinning head (dance remix) version.

if you like zoo station, get salome.

No. I'd just like to hear the B-sides. Thanks for the advices.

for other remixes, try beautiful day one, and one of the discotheque ones (can't quite remember the name right now )... johnny cash's version of one is quite good, while the night and day remix is good also.

if you want pure club beats in discotheque go for the dm deep extended club mix, if that's too long(it's like 8 minutes) theres a smaller version. if you want a laugh out of discotheque get the howie b, hairy b mix with somebody(bono or edge) rapping at the end. it's feckin fantastic!

Hello U2Girl,

Of course, you never have to skip songs, even if they are U2 B-sides (or better: especially if they are U2 B-sides). But if you do have too little space on the CD, then I think that Fortunate Son and Deep In The Heart are less essential (as is New Day, but that one already is on the extra list). The others are very good and well worth having.

C ya!

Marty

P.S. Future suggestions:
Boomerang II (Pride B-side)
Silver and Gold (both the Streets B-side as the Sun City (Bono) version)
Satellite Of Love (One B-side)
Slow Dancing (both the Zooropa demo as the Pop duet with Willie Nelson)
North And South Of The River
Two Shots Of Happy, One Shot Of Sad
I'm Not Your Baby (off The End Of Violence Soundtrack)

Make sure you get North and SOuth of the River (Live version from the Omagh Tribute)....

And it's Alex descends into hell for a bottle of milk/Korova 1 (awesome song)

I've always been partial to Two shots of happy, one shot of sad...

We Love You

Oooops! That's right.

I'm sure the remixes are nice, but i'm interested in the B-sides.
