hmmm... no new songs, it's a pitty. But the remixes look interesting...

Jacknife Lee remix of ‘Ave Maria’ sung by Bono with Pavarotti - that's unimaginable !!!

I love the idea of a Trent Reznor Vertigo remix, that'll be amazing, I'm a huge fan of his.

In saying that it's disappointing we're getting more remixies, I was really hoping for more songs. Still, I'm pumped about the Trent Reznor remix.

Dya think the same single will apply for us aussies down under?

Disappointed. I want new songs, no silly remixes. I dont care if they are rather undeveloped instrumentals all I want is new u2 songs.

Mercy, I have a hunch, will be on the 3rd single, which is supposedly going to be released to coincide with the 25th anniversary of the release of BOY. That's fine by me.

It would be great if they make a big 25th anniversary single, with Mercy on it. I think in that case, Mercy wouldn't just have been a b-side. Know what I mean?

i don't want Mercy as a b-side...i want a finished version of it in an official album (releasing it now as a b-side means burning the good ideas it contains while with just a little rework this good song could be turned into a real masterpiece)

This is interesting news indeed

Ave Maria fits into the Operatic theme of this single. Remix should be interesting, I wonder what that means? Will it be a remix or will it just be a reengineering work / cleanup?

Vertigo (Redanka remix) - A quick Google search reveals that this guy's name is Andy Holt a DJ with some dance credits to his name. Anyway, I wonder why they didn't get this included on the original Vertigo Single. The Jacknife Lee mixes grew on me, but I like a little variety in remixes so that I can adopt a favorite, it didn't help the Mofo remixes, but it was worth trying.

Fast Cars (Jacknife Lee Remix) - I like it when they remix a B-Side (yes yes, I know... not a B-Side for the UK, but it's not a standard album track either) I like the groove on the original, I wonder if this will make it even more danceable! I know someone who already likes to bellydance to this one, I think she might be encouraged to find out that they might make the song longer...

DVD --- My chief complaint about DVD's is that I don't want to have to yank the audio so that I can listen to it on the go. So if the Trent Reznor version of Vertigo is any good, I'm going to be bummed until I get it on an mp3 and into my iPod.

I still haven't heard Mercy, I'm holding out for when they actually release it. It's going to be a long gap between albums, so at the very least I can wait until they give me something to listen to.

Lastly, I wonder if ABOY will have the same B-Sides or will it use the ones for SYCMIOYO? It doesn't seem right for it to include Ave Maria, so maybe Mercy will be a B-Side for ABOY instead.

Its so odd that U2 has songs like Levitate, Flower Child, and Smile stored away, and yet we get more remixes for b-sides..oh well.

They're not stored away. They've been released....just on the iPod.

Duh..I know that, my point being these songs sat idle for years before the ipod release..they could have been used as ATYCLB b-sides too.

However they won't be releasing Levitate and Xanax and Wine now because they are key selling points for the Apple Box Set, so we're out of luck there.

I try to keep up with info on both my favorite bands and the second one being NIN and I never heard of a Trent Reznor/U2 collaboration before!!

And Trent has been pretty busy lately trying to finish the latest NIN album due in March.

Anyone got info on this Trent Reznor remix of vertigo?

Where did he find the time, the most meticulous person in the world that he is? :-)
