Sorry, it just seems like there can't be a thread on this website that does not mention the Hong Kong Mixes.

I think that was mentioned in another Pop thread, but yeah, I've seen that link and those demos sound incredible.

A 20th anniversary collection in honor of Pop would be insane, of course, it ain't gonna happen.  Thankfully, another TJT reissue is on the horizon!  I'd love to hear those raw versions of those songs, as a huge Pop fan, it would bee fascinating to see the evolution of these tracks.  Mofo, in particular, sounds incredible.  I like that raw edge (no pun intended) and Do You Feel Loved also sounds epic.

Wow, major discovery! I have thoughts on these newly unearthed clips, but I'll start a new thread to share them....

Haha, you almost pulled it off, you're just forgetting to act as if you actually made the demos yourself.

Maybe I should sue U2 for plagiarism?

As far as the HK mixes go.....its yet further proof of just how much better u2 could be if they stopped polishing the life out of their songs.

look i'll say this. let them re-record the whole album like they want to, but just give us a disc of the entire HK demos and unreleased songs from the same sessions in a Pop deluxe set, and all is forgiven.

I'd be the first to buy it, but they'll never do it.

These mixes tell me that U2 came into the studio to deconstruct a third parties work until the Producer/Band balance was in their favour.

This is in no way a criticism.
