I was wondering this same thing today as I finally got to hear it several times over and only stopped myself because I had to go home.

Ask U2SJ. She said a "friend" gave it to her on a disk with 12 songs. It seemed very mysterious. Very kindly, she shared it with us.

whatever she's called. U2SJ U2SanJose, SanJOseU2.

I can't remember. She got it from a friend and didn't know the actual source. Of course, I should let her answer.

And I'm hoping she was a girl, maybe it was a dude. lol

No... it is the San Jose girl. But she said that she got it straight from the B-Man himself, I believe. It was some very suspicious stuff. When I asked directly about it in the original thread I was told to 'just be happy that we have it' and not ask too many questions.

I don't believe that she ever stated that Bono gave her the CD. She mentioned that she had met Bono that same week. She told us that a freind gave her the disk with the 12th track, then shared it with us to confirm wether it was Mercy or not.

The more important question to ask is " Do we actually know that what we have is Mercy???" It doesn't say Mercy anywhere in the song! What if Mercy is a totally different track alltogether? Even U2SJ girl wasn't sure that it was Mercy. I remember her saying, "I THINK that I have Mercy". I think a more appropriate title for the song would be "Love".

Regardless if Bono gave her the disc or not, the whole thing is quite suspicious if you ask me. Who on Earth is going to have access to this song besides a VERY select few? Oh yeah... and some French guy with sticky fingers.

this song is mercy.
in the deluxe edition HTDAAB book, there are illustrated and handwritten lyrics for this song, and bono has written " Mercy Mercy " on the page.
