Title: One
Post by: DJBear on October 15, 2008, 03:35:07 PM
I'm looking for the Live version of One that is considered the best Live Acoustic song.  I think Sting was with them at time.  Anyone know what album it's on for I can buy it or mp3?

...well, if this is the song you're referring to:\  http://www.imeem.com/bastetdaugther/music/CwKiOene/u2_and_sting_sting_u2_one_best_live_acoustic_ever/
(which, by the way, I was not aware that Sting was a part of???)

...it is Track 2 on the Passengers Miss Sarajevo (Single), found here (and elsewhere): 

US - http://www.amazon.com/Miss-Sarajevo-Passengers/dp/B0000072T8

UK - http://www.amazon.co.uk/Miss-Sarajevo-U2/dp/B0000072T8

It was available on iTunes as a part of the Complete U2 download (which, if I understand correctly, is no longer available).

If you're unfamiliar with Passengers (U2's mid-nineties, brief pseudonymous endeavor), the wikipedia article suffices:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Original_Soundtracks_1

It's Bono, Edge, and Brian Eno. Not Sting. Here's the video on YouTube:

Great performance. Although i do not know if I would say it is "the best". That would be a hard call to make.

Cool. I had a bit of that song on my Ipod but it cut out at the end. Think I got it of a friend.

Will be nice to have the whole song. :)

Mary J blige's version is awesome!
Even though she changes the version and even the title!
