1. Miracle Drug
2. An Cat Dubh/Into The Heart

3. Discotheque

Looks like 3/4 will be between Discotheque, Miracle Drug and An Cat Dubh

An Cat Dubh/Into The Heart (I disagree, this should be counted as one song as on the original release)

One song or two separate songs?

Its weird, because they work great together, yet are considered separate tracks.

I consider them one track, if I were making a compilation I wouldn't separate them, and I wouldn't ever expect U2 to play one without the other, anyone know if they have?

Boom Cha!

Discotheque and New Year's Day.

I'd consider An Cat Dubh and Into The Heart to be one track. Just like Fez and Being Born are one track.

And Love Is Blindness

Dude, HOW did YOU not vote for Discotheque?

I know, I love Discotheque too, I just ever so much prefer the other two I voted for.

Should be considered one song, they are symbiotic and fit together perfectly. It's how U2 intended them to be.

An Cat Dubh and Into The Heart are separate songs so I don't agree with having only one vote for two songs, but no-one will be interested in that seeing as I've said it  ::)

1. New Year's Day
2. Miracle Drug

3. Love Is Blindness
4. Fire

Boom Cha!

But Fez isn't a separate song, it's just a one minute instrumental intro.

An Cat Dubh is a song on its own. Into The Heart is a song on its own. Just because they are together on the album doesn't make them one song. They fit together perfectly, but they are separate from each other in their own right.

Lyrically the songs have nothing to do with each other. Despite the musical segue into each other I cannot consider them the same song. Fez - Being Born is a poor analogy because Fez is a musical intro to Being Born. It has no distinct identity of its own.
