the fly.... why isnt it on now?

i mean it really doesnt make a difference to me, because i have all of their songs on cd anyway... but i checked out www.billboard.com... and it said it was a 16 track set.... and then the shocking part came when "the first time" was the last listed song. alright.. they made a typo... i know that the fly was last track listed on u2.com... so i'll go check it out. when i went to www.u2.com, i clicked on all the new info for the best of 1990-2000, and "the fly" was not there.

this was their first real single of the 90's, one of their more rockin tunes, and a fan favorite.

now it could be a typo, and someone tell me i'm dreaming.

no lemon? no big deal.... no "wild horses"? i'll live... no "if god will send..."? i'm happy... but no 'fly'? if it's true that the fly is taken off the track listing.... i'm gonna be really pissed at interscope (or is it still island?) for screwing up that poorly.

but then again.... two new songs, 4 new mixes, a decent b-sides album AND new dvd's coming out... u2 isn't doing too bad.

this post isnt meant to be bitchin in any way, by the way. i'm just trying to find out of this bull is true, or if i'm just hallucinating

AHHH! It's off on U2.com!!! I'm already upset enough at the removal of Lemon and WGRYWH, but THE FLY?!? Dude, it's like...one of the most enduring, most important, BEST songs of the 90's! Oh dear God, I hope this is just a typo...

This MUST be a typo!! However if it isn't, that means they've left off Lemon and The Fly, two of the very best '90s U2 efforts. Both songs are pretty unique, couldn't they cut some ballads out instead?

Maybe it's the Bonus/Mystery track, so it'll be there, but it's not supposed to be 'listed'.

I'd rather Lemon was the secret track and The Fly was on the album officially!

I hope record company pressure isn't to blame....Stuck In A Moment's inclusion already has me slightly suspicious....

It's true The Fly has mysteriously disappeared off the tracklist at U2.com. I can't imagine it being now used as the hidden bonus track though maybe that's what they are going to do with it.

Weird how it just mysteriously disappeared like that. Not good. You have to have The Fly!

I'm betting on The Fly as the hidden track. I actually thought that the first time I saw The Fly as the last song.

You know, U2's people read Interference. Maybe they are punishing us for all our earlier bitching.

lol. I agree with Mikal. The Fly is probably a ghost track. The U2.com people probably just screwed up and typed it in as a regular track, so when the realized their error, they fixed it.

The Fly= #1 Hit in UK
Lemon= #1 Hit in Australia
Both= Not officially on new album (since The Fly is probably hidden)

Am I missing something here?

I noticed that when the official release first came out it said something about '16 Tracks' - but I counted 17. I didn't say anything, though - figured it's the bonus track.

if they leave the fly off I think that they should rename the title of the album, cause seriously it will not be the best off

How could they not put The Fly on? That was the single that introduced the new U2 of the 90's! I think of all the 90's singles that would should be on there the most. I know it wasn't a huge US chart hit, peaking at I think #61, but still wasn't it a #1 hit in the UK?

I have to say I am very suprised at the tracklisting...

No Walk On...or Elevation...or The Fly (the song that paved the way for 90's U2)...or

the first time???
the hands that built america???

whatver, not the end of the world but really kind of strange to me....
