Xanax and Wine could have been a classic

I love the lyrics of Xanax and Wine. I know they are mostly the same. But I like the part where Bono reaches that high note for "Xanax and Wine" Fast Cars is good too, but I prefer Xanax and Wine. With a little tweaking, it could have been great.

I have to agree with you...Fast Cars is so, so while Xanax is pretty awesome. I have added it to my version of HTDAAB...

I love it! I just listened to it for the first time. I just can't believe it wasn't included, but I guess thats what the Complete U2 is for! I wish the lyrics were on the site for all these alt. versions.

I love the extra chorus on Xanax and Wine. I have a playlist called Hut Dab All, which includes every outtake and b-side.

Even though it is on the Complete U2, i still think it should have been on the cd. Its more upbeat than fast Cars. I can see how it could have been a rock cd.

I prefer Fast Cars myself. I just love the litte Middle Eastern flare in the guitar playing. I do really like the Xanax and WIne chorus though.

Xanax and Wine

This song sounds like U2 trying too hard to be hip and young. Extra crunchy guitars and Bono's terrible falsetto.

That being said, I FRIGGEN LOVE THIS SONG!

I agree with your first statement, and have to say I like Fast Cars better. I think this songs fits better with Native Son and the first version of ABOY, but would not fit the feel of the released album.

if it were on 'Bomb', it wouldn't be the best song, but it would have the best chorus.
