Song Most Worthy of getting remixed for the next "Best of"

We don't even know if this is going to happen but if it does which song would you like to see worked on the most. (Yes I know that some of the songs have been reworked in singles but humour yourself )

none of the songs need "help"

they need to remix ATYCLB, or just un-mix it and take out a lot of that bloated synth production

agreed , however why not to re- release oldies like Boy , War , UF , October at first , cause the sound on them is worser then on my bootleg Cleveland Elevation SBD , no texts , no good pictures , colorful booklet :question: :question:

as I said, I don't think the songs need help either but the band thinks that maybe some of them could possibly use a little polish.....geeeeez

Discotheque could use a face lift. I always thought that song was missing something. It's not bad, but it doesn't have that extra touch that would make it a memorable song.

NO MORE REMIXING!!!!!!!!!!!




sorry, but it is my opinion that every time they do that they lose so much of the original magic on the first recording.
for example, on pop, they remixed last night on earth and please for they singles, but in my mind the originals blow away the remixes in sheer value of groove, feel, and an abscence of glossiness.
oh yeah, and they remixed IGWSHA also, and it sounded half-assed.


get the mixes right the first time or don't release it.:lemon:

maybe they could replace the synths by Thom York snorking

now that would truly be a neo-dadaistic ber-statement

Sorry I won't vote on this one as I believe that POP is excellent as it is. I don't think any of it (or indeed any other U2) should be touched.

Remix the Theque, a little more rocking maybe and I think Starting at the Sun will be given a facelift even though it's good the way it is....

IMO the single version of God Will Send His Angels was much better than the album version especially the last part of the song.
