I would hope not. Let art be art. The remixes on the Best Of 2000's were subpar. Live with the 1997 POP mixes. Flaws and all.

I liked Bono's message better than the rendition of "Beautiful Day".  Bono is always so eloquent.  An America that hasn't yet been birthed....hmmm.  He gives you a lot to ponder.

The Music and Lyrics / U2: The Eternal Remixes... official?
« Last post by BringCitrus on June 09, 2020, 03:33:40 PM »
Is this an official release? The label is listed as Universal Island Records. I'd never heard of it before. I see it in a few online music stores, including iTunes. No mention of it on U2.com

Bono's message to the Class of 2020, plus a non-U2 version of Beautiful Day.

Not sure there is a bad segue into Streets.

the only time "there is a bad segue" is when Bono preaches overtop the haunting intro...  not a big fan of the 30th Anniversary 'Joshua Tree Tour' shows where he ruins the moment by insisting on yapping overtop of the organ...  the band spends the first part of the show building towards this moment only to have Bono kill it...  he got it right in Vancouver on opening night by talking at the end of 'Pride (In The Name of Love)'...  not only a more suitable time but the Martin Luther King banter suits this song much better...  the crowd chanting while segueing into the cathedral organ and no Bono is excellent but, unfortunately, just about every show after that he deciding that talking overtop of the intro was better for only reasons he would know...:-)

I have always loved RTSS into Streets from Zoo TV. Very magical. Slane is pretty awesome too with AIWIY. I also think Streets is their best opening song too and love the version on R&H movie in that regard. Not sure there is a bad segue into Streets.
