I'd be fine with North Star and EBW. Wouldn't mind Mercy if its the new one. I hate the original version, but love the new lyrics.

Sigh. Hate.

I hope the old stuff does make an appearance soon....


.... As B-sides. Its been a while since we've been treated to good ones.

Yes! Bring back the b-side U2 and knock yourself out releasing some of these old songs, but only in that context.

Like Montgomery Brewster said, none of the above!

I can't believe all the calls for mercy on here across threads - its a ten year old song, with syrupy lyrics, is u2 in the 00s by numbers and would signify a step back not forward

As much as I love the song, releasing a song from 2004 would certainly be a step backward, or at least stagnation.

Surprised so few people are against releasing any of them - only 15% currently.

8 people are against releasing any of them out of 30 voters = 27%.

Hmmm. Thanks for your sarcasm.  There were 30 people who voted. Eight people said they do not want any of the old songs on the new album. The rest of the votes are all made of people voting multiple times. 27% of the voters do not want any old songs, even though their 8 votes only make up 15% of the total votes (55 votes).  I.e 8/30 = 26.67 %.  8/55 = 14.54%

Maybe release three of them with the first single as an EP?


I chose three: EBW, NS & Soon. I hope that with the first two they don't over develop and spoil. Soon is fantastic an needs a little development to add to 'choir' verses/chorus.

Why is there any love for Mercy - quite frankly it's poor and been released already on the WAIE vinyl.

Soon is like a 23rd century still haven't found. It's awesome.

I voted none of the above. Why anyone would want a song that is a) sub standard offering and b) already widely available is beyond me. If one of them songs listed, all of which, i class as b-side material at the very best, made it on to the album, it would mean one less new song for the fans to enjoy

Could still be better than so-so remixes of so-so songs

Perfectly said Smee. Couldn't agree more.

New album = new songs please, all of them.

I really cannot believe anyone would want any of these older songs on a brand new release by the band.
