Invisible and Ordinary Love are incredibly great songs. They would deserve to get the regular version of the SOI. I do not know why just Invisible ended up as a bonus.

Still holding on to the long stated run time of SLABT on the physical release. Could be an invisible Invisible in that!  ;)
I thought everyone knew it was because it IS.

Yes...I mean, you just HAVE to love "I am NOT invisible, I am HERE!"...how many times have you felt that way in life? The lyrics in this song are wonderful.

Invisible is a fairly respectable experiment. The electronica-influenced drumming is interesting, pairing nicely with the synth lead (which could actually be an odd guitar effect). The bass synth is also pretty ingenuitive for U2 (Mofo incorporates a similar sound in the build-up to its initial verse).

Unfortunately, I'm not big on it lyrically, and the piano/keyboard flourishes are too over-the-top for my taste.

I like the single mix they released. Now that I've heard some Songs of Experience, invisible could have fit in nicely. Unfortunately, it was underwhelming live and sounded terrible with the high school marching band approach

Its in my top three U2 tracks that weren't on one of their albums.  HMTMKMKM and TGBHF are the other two.
