What do you mean, are there tracks from POP missing?

Ive noticed this before.

Its a good question.

Discotheque, Last Night on Earth, The Playboy Mansion and Wake Up Dead Man.

Something to do with samples maybe?

I've got the full album on Spotify. I wonder if it is location issue? I'm in the UK and have problem. Are you a premium member?

Weird.
When I put U2 Pop in the spotify search, i come with a POP album  with these song titles blacked out and not playable.

But when i put any of the missing song titles in search, it's easy to find them in various playlists..

see for example, Jaime Blanco's playlist  "U2 Discography Selection" at this link:

I wonder if it has anything to do with the samples that are embedded in some of these tracks.

If memory serves there are credits for certain songs even in the liner notes.

Maybe out of caution they avoid a legal hassle even if it may be a remote possibility that someone who has the rights to these songs may cry foul?

Probably. DGPFYCC isn't available either.

This has bugged me forever. Discotheque and WUDM are two of my favorites from the album.

It must be a location thing. There's a cheap joke in there about Americans still not "getting" Pop but I'm not childish enough to make it.
