Question came about from the Boy poll thanks to WookieWarrior.  Made me think.

Is this a Goodbye Yellowbrick Road situation with Funeral For a Friend/Love Lies Bleeding where the songs are inseparable?

Or a Led Zeppelin Heartbreaker-Livin Loving Maid where the tracks can be split? But not often played on radio separate?

I think it is somewhere in between these 2 examples.  I voted not sure.

That's what pushes me towards thinking of them as one track. I am inclined to believe that the U.K. releases of U2 albums are more in favor of the band's artistic views.

Two parts of one song. I go by live performances in which An Cat Dubh and Into The Heart are always performed together when in their entirety, so I vote one song.

Separate they are two average songs. Together as one song, it is one of their best!

It's one song. There is literally no musical break between the end of ACD and the beginning of ITH. If it's two songs, then Paranoid Android is at least three songs (as is Stairway to Heaven), which is ridiculous.

Also, Bohemian Rhapsody.

If this were a court ruling I would still be confused.

This needs to get kicked up to U2 - SCOTUS. 

Shall we assign 9 posters to hear the case from 2 lawyers representing both sides?

A great idea - we could literally have the case play out on the forum and reach a decision.

Could be real fun.

Which band are you referring to? Pink? Or Floyd?

Another great case in the pipeline is the great question if OST 1 is a U2 album. We could hear the arguments.   Ask questions.  Then each Justice writes an opinion that will result in the decision.  I nominate you An tha, you seem to have a deep knowledge.  I've only been a member since February, but as somebody that was deported from another forum after 12 years, I bring a fresh perspective not swayed by long lasting friendships here.  I will volunteer my services.  I'd also nominate WookieWarrior as a younger fan who has brought up similar questions himself, brings a different view.  The dude can't vote yet in the US might as well give him some civic responsibility.

This would be hilarious.  And remember those with super strong opinions can be those making the arguments.

That sounds like a very vocal jury. I'm in!

Could definitely be fun....i have seen and been a part of these sort of things in the past and they can make for some brilliant reading and some genuinely engaging debate, plus some great comedy.

Thanks for your kind words but i'll take a watching brief on this one - there are people much better placed than me to lead something like this....be a really good idea to play it out though with all the full 'case' style stuff as well!
