U2 - The Best Of 2000 - 2010
« on: March 05, 2009, 08:41:19 PM »
Prediction time.


What do you think will make the cut for U2's next 'Best of'?

So far, they haven't put more than four songs from one album on any 'Best of's, so I'm going to assume they hold to the same rule for the next one. 
(Note:  The Fly was on some Best of's, but it didn't make the standard version for the whole world, which is why I don't count that as a 5th 'Best of' song for Achtung Baby.)


1980 to 1990 had 14 tracks with 1 hidden track.
1990 to 2000 had 16 tracks with 0 hidden, (for most of the world).
I'm going to predict another 14 tracks with 1 hidden for 2000 to 2010.

All That You Can't Leave Behind
1.  Elevation (Tomb Raider Mix) - This mix came out in 2001, and I get the feeling they kept the regular version of 'Elevation' off their last one to put it on the next one.
2.  Walk On (Hallelujah Mix) - This mix came out in 2002.  Just like 'Elevation', I think they left the regular version of 'Walk On' off for this reason.  There were only two songs from ATYCLB on the last 'Best of', so adding two more here would reach four for that album combined.

How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb
3.  Vertigo
4.  Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own
5.  City Of Blinding Lights
6.  Original Of The Species (The hidden track)

No Line On The Horizon
7.  Magnificent
8.  Moment Of Surrender
9.  I'll Go Crazy If I Don't Go Crazy Tonight - I think this is supposed to be the next single, which is why I have this one over some other potential's from the latest album.
10.  Get On Your Boots

Songs Of Ascent
11.  Every Breaking Wave
12.  Another song from this album
13.  Another song from this album

Other
14.  Mercy (The Single Mix) - This song doesn't really exist yet, but they could put out the version of this song they'd want on this album.  Just like 'Sweetest Thing' from the first 'Best of', it would be a new version of a song originally made during that time period.  'Mercy' belongs somewhere, and it seems like this would be a better fit than making it a B-side to a single or something.
15.  A new song - Just like 'Electrical Storm' and 'The Hands That Built America', from the last 'best of'.

I agree with every song except Original of the Species.  I would add Love and Peace.  Other than that, great CD

Are you saying that OOTS will be the hidden song? I don't know why this wouldn't be an indexed track as i thought it was dumb to put October as a hidden track. Btw, OOTS is the best song from Bomb, hands down.

Interesting thread, i was thinking about this the other day, and depending on how many singles get released from SoA, i think it's safe to say we'll get 15, maybe 16. But obvioulsy, the bonus disc of b-sides will be the draw for us die hard fans, and it is on this disc that Mercy would be likely to show up, i feel.

THTBA wasn't a new song done for the best of album<nor was 90-00 the last best of the band put out - 18 Singles was> it was from the Gangs Of NY ost. E.Storm WAS a new song, in that it was the first official release of the song we'd heard them going on about since the ATYCLB days.

THTBA wasn't a new song done for the best of album<nor was 90-00 the last best of the band put out - 18 Singles was> it was from the Gangs Of NY ost. E.Storm WAS a new song, in that it was the first official release of the song we'd heard them going on about since the ATYCLB days.


Yeah, I was suggesting OOTS would be the hidden song.  I'm not a big fan of hidden tracks either, but if you're gonna have one, this would seem to fit the bill.  Not as well known as the others, and it would sound good closing out an album, imo.


True, THTBA wasn't done just for the album or anything.  I just mean new in the sense that U2 hadn't released it yet.  On the back of the Best of 1990-2000 case, it even says "New Song".  That's all I meant by that.

And true, U218 was their last Best Of, but I just didn't include that since it was sort of a separate 'Best of' album, not following the same format as the other two of only going a decade at a time.

True, but it wasn't released on any of their major albums or anything yet.  Most of the work was done in the '00's, but would be released in the '10's with changes as a new song, just like most of the work on 'Sweetest Thing' was done in the '80's, but released in the '90's with changes as a new song.
