would you like to have extra cheese with your burger Sir!

This surely proves one things.That Ignoreland guy was genuine, cause I remember him stating that U2 were planning to release two different formats for radio single and the actual single,He also said that one would have heavier instrumentation or something to this effect.Well so far it seems to be right.The other good thing is, this means that U2 now can satisfy more 'fans'...its like the McDonalds, those who like rock will get rock and those who like keyboards meaning experimental sound, they get that.

Thanks, Elvis! I downloaded it this afternoon!

I like it, but I still don't love it. It's a nice song, but like all of William Orbit's work, it's overproduced. I perfer the Radio 1 demo, it had a rougher edge to it. This song is little too smooth for my taste. Still, though, it's enjoyable. It's one of only two mp3s on my player right now.

does anyone know if this is ripped directly from a CD or is it taped from radio? The quality is great--I was just wondering if it is ripped from a cd, maybe we could get the other single mix ripped too. I do like this version a lot; I think this version sounds like it could be off POP.

hmm I found it a bit hard to follow- all of that information on that page that yertle gave a link to.....anyway I just want to let you all know that I have been listening to the orbit mix all day today and I simply cant get enough of this song, it has grown on me immensely, I think I now have a new found faith in any new U2 music- good on ya guys!

oh and something else that I have been thinking is, that synthy bit near the end of the song kinda reminds me of early video game music- makes me think a bit of that game Zelda, I am sure it had some similar sounding music in it, anyone else had a similar thought, or is it just me?

Cool! I dunno, the Orbit production makes it alot shinier and easier to digest. But it's not as much U2 as the other one if that makes sense. I think it is the ending that is disappointing in the Orbit version, builds up really well and then just goes "woosh woosh", no big guitar or anything, if there was a compromise between that and the Radio1 version then it might sound better to me. Same Orbity Madonna Ray Of Light All Saints' The Beach song effect, which ain't exactly a bad thing.

I prefer the drums in this though Ah it does sound pretty cool, I'm liking it on listen 5

The Orbit mix is much more in the spirit of U2's work from the 90s.

I think it would fit into AB or Zooropa much more than ATYCLB or the 80s albums and for that reason alone I think it a much better choice to on the BEST OF rather than the other version.

I am sure this was U2s reasoning for putting the Orbit mix on the album.

This Orbit Mix is fine, but I stick with the single version. Id rather listen to Edges guitar than keyboards, definitely. And nothing compares to the end of the single version for me.

the william orbit mix makes it what it has to be. it like it a lot more now. If this is U2's new sound, their heading in the right direction!

btw, it reminds me of staring at the sun...

All three versions are really great...I think the Orbit mix is pretty cool, nice "atmosphere" about it...I think the single mix is my fav, only for the guitar.

edit: BTW, I love the way the vocals are sounding on the Orbit mix...especially the "dreaming someone else's dream" part...the production on this version is fantastic.

I wish they did'nt let this one see the light of day. I's just not U2.
You can't even hear the Edge!
I'd give it a 5 out of 10, compared to the Real Single Version I'd give 10 out of 10.

I can't believe the William Orbit mix is on both the album and Single!
This Really sux!!!
The cool version that everyone loves is only on the B-Sides Cd.
Surely someone made a mistake with the track listings.
It's at www.atu2.com

Why the hell did they put that wierd shite on instead of Edge's fantastic Guitar solo!!!!
It's just not Rock n roll!!!

finally got the orbit mix downloaded and i it!
it's so lush and spacey and sweet and i think it suits Bono's voice very well.
i like it much better than the BBC version.

....slowly losing it

Ok. I just downloaded the 'clean' versions of the Single Mix and the Orbit mix.
So... add the BBC version and that makes three. I swear there is a different version out there yet and I hear it on my radio station everyday. The beginning sounds just like the Orbit mix but the end does not have that guitar riff and right now all three versions I have have the guitar riff. The Orbit version I have is slightly lamer than the single or BBC version in regards to the guitar riff... but Bloody hell.

Is it October 04th yet?
