So, the Orbit mix is the single version? I kinda liked the other one better (not the demo, but the OTHER one...yes, I'm quite vague). Oh well, its still got "the stuff."

Thanks Elvis and earlier to U2LA ! I like the first ¾ album / Orbit version. It has a slower intro and a gradual build up. The synthesizer sound in the background adds a dreamy-like late at night atmosphere. It seems like they put some echo on some of Bono’s vocals in the early part of the song. I like the inclusion the “electrical storm - baby don’t cry” after the first verse. But I like the harder rocking last 1/3 of single version. It kind of reminds me of the finish of Beautiful Day. The last 1/3 of the album / Orbit version has a synthesizer sound in the background that I believe gives it a more of an “eerie” sound. It fits the “dreamy” synthesizer sound at its beginning but I prefer the more “stormy“ finish of the single version.

Just heard this new version.I'm too sure what to think. I loved all the other versions, the guitars sounded great. Here, a lot of the electric guitar I liked is missing. I still like it though, but I'll have to have a few more listens to come to a more concrete conclusion.

BTW is this version the album version too?

really like this version--actually I really like all the versions. I think it is so cool to hear the different versions; it gives some insight into the process. Even though this is a minoroty opinion, I still think the original BBC Demo is my favorite version. I hope someday a CD rip of this version will surface.

One thought: this Orbit version seems to have the best sound quality of all the versions. Is it a cd rip? If so, when will the other shoe drop? In other words when will we get high quality mp3's of the other versions.

I'm soooooooo confuzzled

Okay how many versions are there?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

I've got the BBC, WRXT, Orbit, and "Album" (but it sounds like WRXT version to me).


My brain exploded about five minutes ago

this is not the version my radio station is playing here in Canada. The one we have is much more rocking.

Is the one they are playing the album version??

All the versions have their own merits, but I think I prefer having more electic guitars than the acoustics in the Orbit version. I mean, towards the end some great guitar stuff is missing in his mix, I wasn't pleased!!

I absolutely love the William Orbit Mix!

The BBC mix was weak, the Single Mix is very good, but the William Orbit Mix is the best!! The William Orbit mix adds something new to the U2 sound, it's more experimental. I love the way the song builds in the beginning. I hope this really is the one that finds its way to the album. U2 has done a good job with this one.

I really, really like this Orbit mix, I have only heard the BBC version before this one and this version shits all over the BBC demo, Bono's voice sounds really great, but I dont know about the synthy bit at the end, it sounds cool, anyway I can see this song really growing on me, it is really nice but this song would sound even better if that rocking Edge riff from the demo was in there at the end, and you know because I have heard the riff everytime I hear the Orbit mix I can hear it in my mind and I am thinking 'it should be here' it needs to rock out at the end, but hey still this is a nice song, very nice indeed

Damn, I've downloaded four versions of this thing and I'm hopelessly confused. The DJ on the WXRT mix referred to the "William Orbit" mix "you heard last hour", and, uh, I didn't hear it. To heck with that DJ. Which version is which? I'm hopelessly confused.
