Crazy Tonight was a single. Why does everyone forget that?

U2 only recorded this song for a television commercial.




No, there was an official video and it charted in several countries as an official single.

Yeah I know and it was also on the NLOTH album, but they only recorded it for a TV commercial.

Oh, I see. You're insulting the song rather than asserting it wasn't a single. Got it. :P

Albeit not fantastically if it needs to be clarified that it was an insult! XD  :D

Well, I didn't exactly 'insult' the song, but you're quite free to regard recording a song for a TV commercial as being insulting. ;)

I must say, I like the idea that U2 would go to the effort of writing and recording an extra song, not including lots of others for it, all for the nefarious purpose of a single ad.

I mean, *some* would say it would have been far easier to just use an existing song but no! They do not have evil minds like McGuinness

And they've gone even further than that; they recorded Vertigo for a single episode of CSI.  How cool is that?

I thought they recorded it for the iPod.

I was inexplicably correct in my out of left field predictions of Your Blue Room and Scarlet, so I'm going to toss out some here:

This leg will see the debut of Grace, full band Every Breaking Wave, Fez - Being Born, Drowning Man. Zooropa and Tryin To Throw Your Arms Around The World will also be played, with a rare occasion of Dirty Day. Your Blue Room will also make a return. Discotheque will be resurrected and alternate with Crazy Tonight until halfway through the leg when Crazy Tonight disappears and Discotheque becomes the regular set piece until the end of the tour.

I amended this to fit my prediction.  I think all the songs I didnt cross out might be played, although I seriously doubt Zooropa will be played

1. The 4 NLOTH songs stay
2. Every Breaking Wave and Mercy are regulars while North Star remains in a diminished capacity
3. 2-5 new songs are played
4. All I Want is You becomes a regular
5. Gone reappears and rotates with HMTMKMKM in the encore
6. Ultraviolet very well could be dropped
7. One of the new songs opens the show

1. Stingray Guitar stays *I want to hear this song live SO badly*
2. Gone or Last Night on Earth replace Ultraviolet
3. IALW is dropped *Pretty Please*
4. Glastonbury Returns *SUPER pretty please*
5. 40 makes a few appearances
6. A few new songs are played *maybe 2-3* and replace songs like Walk On and Mysterious Ways

1. Number of NLOTH songs further declines- probably Boots or Magnificent (Possibly both?)
2. Stingray stays as opener but leads into a new lead single
3. EBW, Mercy, Boy Falls, North Star all appear at least semi-regularly
4. Return of at least one live classic- The Fly / Bullet the Blue Sky
5. More regular appearance of Pride after skipping Europe leg
6. At least 2-3 unplayed songs replacing some NLOTH songs, Miss Sarajevo, IALW, UTEOTW

Possible:

7. Go Crazy remix is replaced by new similarly rave-influenced piece from new album

while North Star remains in a diminished capacity

I'm curious about why you think 'diminished' when the evidence is that this is the song which the band feel got the best audience response?

Am I the only American who loves the Crazy Remix?!!? I love it better than the original song and I love the original song.

I wouldnt mind if Discotheque came in....

I dont believe we can predict the new album chickens before the new album has hatched.

Nope - I love it , MG. I love remixes because it shows the style of the person doing the remixing. The same song can be so different remixed by different people.  I happen to also love the Unknown Caller Snow Patrol remix as well.  ;D

Oh!! I havent heard that remix! I love Unknown Caller!

About Crazy Tonight Remix--This looks like the best, most energetic part of the concert. I would hate to have it dropped. I want to experience that at my shows this summer!! All the youtube footage is awesome... Larry comes out and bangs on that bongo thing (sorry that I dont know the real name of that instrument), Adam and Edge get all bouncy and move all over the place. That's FREAKING AWESOME.

I also love Stingray because it gives Bono the opportunity to jump wildly all over the place and shout stuff. To a Bonogirl, this is great. ;) I love those moments.
