the best bang for your seven bucks

i just got the exclusive U2 7 CD from Target and it is worth the $6.99 that i paid. This CD is only sold at Target (hence, the "exclusive" tag).
(besides the cool tracks, the CD cover has a great shot of the band-----and Bono's not the one with the shades in the pic!)

Track Listing:

1) Summer Rain
2) Always
3) Big Girls Are Best
4) Beautiful Day (Quincey and Sonance Remix)
5) Elevation (Influx Remix)
6) Walk On (Single Version)
7) Stuck in a Moment (acoustic)

Has anyone else listened to this CD?

I think the vast majority of us have heard it and/or own it or have downloaded it.

I have a copy...it's what I listened to in my car this morning.

As previously stated in other forums, I am a posting nightmare.

( <- thinks 1/4 of these were accidental double posts)

The first three tracks are B-sides from ATYCLB singles. "Always" is really a working version of BD.

I have bought seven copies so far and sent them to out-of-USA interferencers. Tis a great lil' disc.

I've been listening to it in the car too! My 23 month old son sings "Ya Ya Ya" with Bono during "Big Girls Are Best".

I love the lyrics in "Always"!

It's in my car too. I just love Always. Thanks Sula for the tip about it being a working version of BD. Makes sense.

I'm sorry, I read the title 'the best bang for your seven bucks' and had dirty thoughts.

'Always ' reminds me to buckle my safety belt

'Stuck' usuallyu plays when I'm "stuck" in traffic.

'Big Girls..' usually plays when I head to the nudie bar

I better stop now

I love Summer Rain. I think that should have gone on ATYCLB. When I made a copy of the ATYCLB for my car I had Summer Rain replace Wild Honey.

Thank God for the 5-point harness car seat. I really think she could hit the car ceiling during this song if she wasn't strapped in.

That is so cute!! :-)
