Yes, OOTS will be next I bet. The tour is still very early and the band will have another single for sure this Fall when they return to the States.

As for City..., its a perfect single release.

Next single... probably OOTS, but Miracle Drug is not excluded too. These too are the most probable single.

Another unexcluded (but not probable) option is All Because Of You as a worldwide single.

I don't think OOTS will be their 4th single. The band doesn't play the song very often on the tour. I hope they will release the full version of Miracle Drug, although I guess ABOY will be the next in Europe and SYCMIOYO will be the U.S./Canadian single.

It looks like OOTS will be next. Bono and The Edge have said it's the best song on the album

I don't see OOTS as a good single.

It's a GREAT song, but that doesn't mean it will translate well to radio.

Come to think of it, Vertigo aside I don't see anything from this album being a good single. Where ATYCLB was truly the album where "any song could be a single", HTDAAB is the album where almost no songs can be singles.

That's not to say they are bad, but they aren't radio-friendly pop tunes (with the exception of Vertigo).

Not playing the song on tour very much didn't stop them from releasing Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses or If God Will Send His Angels. Two songs that never quite hit their stride on tour.

I agree that they won't release a single that they don't play, but I think the experimentation during this leg of the tour might yield more playing of OOTS come the fall.

I think Vertigo will be released again as the 5th single.

You know, just like when the band plays it twice in their shows.

I'm 100 % sure Miracle Drug will be the last single of HTDAAB, because it's one of the 5 songs that's been played a few times on the promo-tour (along with the other singles Vertigo, All Because of You, Sometimes... and City of Blinding Lights)!!

For sure... Expect the radios to play the Temple Bar Mix A LOT!

I think it is the opposite. In spite of being of being longer, more elaborated, HTDAAB tracks in general have the same potential or more potential than ATYCLB tracks. In 2000/1 I was not seeing "Kite" (despite I love this song), "Grace" or "Wild honey" for example being singles in the musical panorama 4 years ago.

In the other hand, I can see almost all HTDAAB songs being single in 2004/5 (with the exception of One Step closer) edited, remixed or not.

I've already said (don't know if in this topic or in another one) that for 4th worldwide single I'd "vote" Original of the species, but other potential songs for single are Miracle drug and All beacuse of you (worldwide).
