  • too much is not enough
is not available on iTunes?

What gives? Surely the whole point of releasing it as a single is to make it commercially available?  ???

Shame, because it's my favourite version so far (the strings towards the end kill me) and the one available on Youtube has the annoying talking over it.

Rumours abounded that it was Jan. 12. The radio call in blended EBW version came out about a week after that Jan. 12 date. Who knows what is going on anymore... I surely don't!

Isn't it?! That's what it said here:

I'm pretty damn confused too, seems like we have great publicity on one hand with the McArdle short film and a total clusterfumble on the other with the single.

U2 will not be releasing any new singles at least until the tour has opened...its quite evident as the band are not doing any promotion at all..

it just would not make sense for them to release EBW & then not promote it, perform it etc.

the reason why the EBW video came out - its simply from a PR perspective so U2 are not forgotten by the world..

Maybe EBW is only for promotional purposes therefore is not in a normal distribution.
