Which reworked Pop song is your favorite?

So a lot of the songs from Pop were reworked of late... from the ones on the Best of, to the Jools Holland Velvet Dress version... but which one is your favorite? Hmm...

Just from going off the top of my head from what I remember of the Best Of CD II the first disc:

GONE

I don't like what they did to Discotheque. WTF happened to the *BOOM CHA's* ?????

They butchered Discotheque. Gone abso-f*cking-lutely rocks, however.

I gave the nod to Gone, although I really like Velvet Dress, as well.

I enjoyed more guitars, edge's vocals, and of course Bono just screaming at the end.

I like the new Discotheque The freaky sounding stuff was what I didn't like about it and I like the changes. It puts more attention on some of the lyrics instead of the wackiness which makes me appreciate it more. I had totally missed this before:

Wanna be the one, but you know you're someone else instead
want to be the one, be the song, that you hear, in your head

That was good, the best part of the song, but it got lost in all the distortion and weirdness and now it sounds better. I think they improved it. I know a lot of you don't agree but that's just my opinion.

Gone is the one I don't like the rework of, it seems slower and more stretched and not as rocking.

Discotheque is 100 times better than the album version. The re-worked version has balls to it. Fuckin' kicks the old versions ass.
Gone is great too.

"Gone". I love the POP version, but they just gave it a little bit more oomph IMO, and I love the little bits of Edge's vocals just after Bono sings "I'm not coming down", just like in a live version.

No question about it-- Gone.

It was already very good, but the reworking made it a true classic.

New Velvet Dress is much better than the album version -- not nearly as good as the live one they played during Popmart.

Why did they bother reworking SATS? It sounds close to the same, plus a drumbeat . . . whoohoo.

GONE ROCKS.
