It drew in tens of thousands of votes.

Please and Gone were far and away the top two selections from Pop.

I do wish they never butchered or I mean "re-mixed" the POP tracks - they're ok but I wanted the originals in all their glory. Now someones gonna tell me if I want to hear these tracks I can listen to the original Albums. But I wanted them acknowledged by the band as their best stuff - that's all...........oh yeah and that DISCOTHEQUE cut, what's that all about?......all the fizz is gone. Anyway I'll shut up now cuz I do love them........I'm just not talkin to them for a while . [/B][/QUOTE]

I agree with you, Allclub (maybe it's a newbie thing. ) When the rumor for the bew best of first came out, I was thinking, What could be better than One, Numb, Gone, Until the End of the World, and Elevation (among many others) on the same album? They are, and I do like the new mixes of Gone and Numb, but they de-POPped them. Or turned the Larry singing track up a little loud.
I guess my point is that the first CD sounds like they made the POP songs sound a little more Joshua Tree/ATYCLB to make the casual fan happy. I don't know WHAT that casual fan is going to do with the Dirty Day Junk Mix!

Best of 1990-2000 tracklisting

I do agree with most of The Best of tracklisting, but I would not have included The First Time, but instead include Please and Walk On. I also would've included Elevation between The Hands that Built America and Discotheque.

As for the B-sides I agree with what many have said here about the remixes inclusion. I think that they should've done a proper B-sides compilation and included a special double CD compilation of remixes with the album instead of the DVD. and have the DVD released with the Electrical Storm single. Just for the record here is my Tracklisting of the B-sides and Remixes discs.

1. Lady with the Spinning Head (UV1)
2. Holy Joe (Garage Mix)
3. Salome
4. Big Girls are Best
5. Lemon (Jeep Mix)
6. Alex Descends into Hell for a Bottle of Milk
7. Happiness is a Warm Gun (Gun Mix)
8. Satellite of Love
9. Stateless
10. Your Blue Room
11. North and South of the River
12. Night and Day
13. Always
14. Summer Rain
15. Don't Take your Guns to Town
16. Two Shots of Happy, One Shot of Sad
17. Slow Dancing (Stay, Single Version)

1. Lemon (Perfecto Mix)
2. Discotheque (Hexidecimal Mix)
3. Beautiful Day (Quincey and Sonance Mix)
4. Salome (Zooramncer Mix)
5. Numb (Gimme Some More Dignity Mix)
6. Mysterious Ways (Perfecto Mix)
7. Staring at the Sun (Sad Bastards Mix)
8. Elevation (Vandit Club Mix)
9. Stay (Faraway, So Close) (Underdog Mix)
10. Even Better than the Real Thing (Apollo 440 Stealth Sonic Mix)

1. Mofo (Phunk Phorce Mix)
2. New York (Nice Mix)
3. Numb (Soul Assasins Mix)
4. Mysterious Ways (Massive Attack Mix)
5. If God Will Send his Angels (Big Yam Mix)
6. Dirty Day (Junk Day Mix)
7. Lady With the Spinning Head (Extended Dance Mix)
8. Discotheque (DM Deep Club Mix)
9. Even Better than the Real Thing (Perfecto Mix)
10. Lemon (Bad Yard Club Mix)

I would love to know what everyone thinks of this tracklisting?

I agree for the most part, however, remember that songs like Elevation and Walk On were not included due to thier releases being after 2000....

I actually kinda like that version of the song. It's bizarre, but kinda cool.

But if a Greatest Hits album is only for casual fans, why would you change the singles that the casual fans liked in the first place??
