Gosh, thatís quite a bump after 10 years. I really like the original Mercy. The re-worked version that they played live was much inferior to the original. The original is a bit long and could be tightened up but canít believe they left it off Bomb.

Mercy is a great song and I really hope it shows up in some official capacity, whether on an album, as a b-side, or even on the upcoming tour DVD. It's too good to simply be set aside.

Not going to happen!

Talk about a thread being revived!

Anyway, I'm guessing we'll see the full, realized version of Mercy on "Songs of Ascent".
If we ever get to hear the full, realized album that Bono promised 10 years ago  ::)
