There is a reason this is an outtake. I listened to it once inside a store and decided it's not worth buying the single for.

Ah, but then you missed the orchestral version of One and Bottoms, the Zoo Station remix.  Both great.

I really enjoy the singles that shows several sides to U2's musical personality.

Exactly. I will buy any U2 or Passengers single i've ever come across as i collect them, and i find stuff like this, the One w/ orchestra and Bottoms ZS remix to be a GREAT find.

I love "Viva Davidoff" and his morbid ambient. It reminds me of "4th of July" from Unforgettable Fire's LP. Pure Eno. I saw him one time live!

I don't see any particular point to it, :-) but I kinda like it.

I regretted not having purchased the CD single back then but I purchased later the MP3 single on iTunes. It's a good tune if you like ambient music...
