There's a special place in musical hell reserved for people who prefer the abomination that is the Best Of version. If you can't understand the soul that's missing on that re-recording, I feel sorry for you.

And I was never crazy about the live version, either. In addition to the guitar lacking mentioned above, I just don't like Edge's background "Gooooonnnne" in the chorus.

The new mix is exactly how the safe, generic U2 of the past decade would make the song.

so i do agree with you about Discotheque. though i highly prefer the album version of Gone, i don't feel that the best of mix completely killed the spirit like it did Discotheque.
