are you offering a reward? This is a BIG mystery. Many conflicting reports. Anyone have an inside source? How about a propaganda contact? Moderators???

Help

U2 has NOT released a track listing as of now, to my certain knowledge.

Once any of us knows, the rest of you will know.

Normal

i hope not , cause 1990-2000 it's a very different alternative U2 of 90's , ATYCLB is album from next " timeline " , but cause of commercial , money stuff , i'm afraid it will be included .

I'm still hoping that ATYCLB doesn't put it's Grammy winning foot on the new compilation. Of course, to me, all signs are pointing towards it showing up on the new Best Of..........

Personally, I don't think so. Maybe this is just because I hope not. It doesn't go with Pop, AB, Zooropa or the soundtrack songs. Of course "politics" or whatever could be involved and there would be ATYCLB songs on it for sales figures reasons or whatever. I personally think that this would be a mistake.

It shouldn't, but it probably will

Most of the reports some from the last four albums, and also state Passengers as a seperate project.

The subheader on the VH1 report says from Achtung Baby to All That You Can't Leave Behind.

ATYCLB was released in 2000, the singles came later, true.

There are a lot of grrrrreat tracks from the 90s, but far less hits.

I think it might work with the ATYCLB tracks. Let them be the light at the end of the very dark tunnel that was the 90s trilogy.

That's about how I see it. All signs point toward it being included, however.. I really don't think it should be.. for various reasons (and I know most people here agree with me). But oh well what can ya do?

Unfortunately my drama teacher wasn't of a similar mind when I tried to use that on the posters advertising our drama show.

ATYCLB

Of course the songs from ATYCLB will be on it. Paul McGuiness already said they would be and their stupid if they didn't!!!!!

gherman, i would like to know when and where Paul M. said that ATYCLB singles would be on the best of...? and Please tell me why it would be stupid NOT to have them on there. I think it would be stupid of them to HAVE them on there. Interested in your view, and if Paul actually said this recently and we can see it in writing or hear it in an audio clip then we can put the mystery to rest.

Hey, I haven't seen *any* quotes from Paul McGuinness or anyone else from Principle, not even a "spokesperson". Without any official word I'd hesitate to assume anything either is or isn't going to be on this compilation. It would be thematically weird, to say the least, to have AB and ATYCLB on the same album.

Artistically, I don't think the ATYCLB stuff should be on the Best of. ATYCLB is the start of another period for U2 IMHO. I was really hoping they would just focus the 90's material, have faith in those songs, and reintroduce the material that deserves to stand on it's own. A pure 90's best of could really show the audience who discovered & rediscovered U2 with ATYCLB how great and daring some of that material is. I think it sounds as contemporary today as when it was 1st released. Unfortunately, I don't think it will happen though. Here's why....

ATYCLB received so much airplay, and still does, that I'm sure people who DON'T own the album know tunes like Beautiful Day and Walk On. These are listeners who probably just want the hits. I think they would feel dissapointed if they saw a new U2 Best of and Beautiful Day was not on there. Remember, when the 1st best of came out, the 80's U2 material was only stuff that really got airplay, save for One & Mysterious Ways. It's still pretty much the same today except they play they play the ATYCLB songs as well. There were not to many radio hits in the US in the 90's. The 1st Best of was all radio hits. That's what "radio" fans are going to be looking for. All of us here are going to be buying this album for the new songs and B-sides.

If the album is going to have 2 new songs, wouldn't it be strange to jump from POP songs in 1997 to new songs in 2002 and no bridge between? I'm sure they will wan't some sort of continuity. Also, the ATYCLB album is from 2000. Hence, 1990-2000.

I'd bet on the most mainstream 90's songs as well, and would not be surprised if more challenging songs like The Fly & Discotheque are left off, only if 2000 stuff is NOT included. I hope it is pure 90's best of, but my guess is it will look something like this....

1 Even Better Than....
2 One
3 Mysterious Ways
4 Until The End.... (Big radio song, fan fave, sdtk. song)
5 Lemon (Edit)
6 Stay
7 Miss Sarejevo
8 Staring At The Sun
9 Last Night On Earth (Single Version)
10 If God Will Send (Single Version-Also from City Of Angels Sdtk which was a big hit)
11 The Ground Beneath Her Feet (My guess as second single/It would be nice to see this song be rediscovered)
12 Beautiful Day
13 Stuck (Single Edit)
14 Elevation (Tomb Raider)
15 Walk On (Single Version)
16 The Hands That Built America (Either this or a different new song...I hope!)
17 NEW SONG (1st single)

Oh. It would be nice to see Your Blue Room or Stateless as a hidden bonus track, but I doubt it. I would be surprised if there was any bonus tracks considering the album is supposed to be 17 tracks. Your Blue Room may end up on the B-sides disc since it was on the Staring At The Sun single. That would be nice. Hopefully Night & Day will be too.

I like your posts on this subject a lot Hawkmoon1021


I think if there will be a hidden track "The First Time" has a good chance

Hawkmoon2101, I agree with you. I don't think ATYCLB should be on this compilation. It doesn't mix with Pop, Zooropa, or AB. AB was very successful, Zooropa and Pop less so, but still, there are some really strong songs. The record company will probably want the hits, though, so probably ATYCLB will pop up--oops, no pun intended--on this release.
