Best of 2000 - 2010 @ 08:32 am

rockingthemike:
I'm currently feelin: anxious anxious

We all know the story; U2 made a deal with Island as a 'thank-you' to release three best ofs. I was just thinking of the singles that would be on a Best of 2000-2010, and got a warm tingling feeling. Best of 1980-1990 was good, Best of 1990-2000 was better, and Best of 2000-2010 has the potential of being the best...

Potential Tracklisting (so far):

1. Walk On
2. Elevation
3. Vertigo
4. All Because of You (North American release)
5. Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own
6. City of Blinding Lights
7. Mircale Drug (?)

Can anyone think of odd ball tracks in line with "The Hands That Built America" or "Miss Sarajevo" that have been done since 2000 that might be included? I can't off the top of my head...

We'll get "All Because of You" on this side of the Atlantic. U2's known for different tracklisting based on geographic areas.

Bono did a song for the Moulin Rouge soundtrack called Children of the Revolution but I'm not sure if they'd include that since it wasn't the whole band.

I forgot about that one. It could happen, more likely on the B-Side disc much like "Your Blue Room" was on 90-00....

I don't know about other tracks- I'd like to see Children of the Revolution- that was a good one.

What about Big Girls Are Best and Always- two of the tracks on U2-7? I love those two.

They were technically on the "Beautiful Day" single, so they wouldn't qualify.

Would "Walk On" and "Elevation" even qualify? Both were on All That You Can't Leave Behind, and Best of 1990-2000 had "Beautiful Day" and "Stuck in a Moment You Can't Get Out Of". I'm just wondering if they'd have enough material to make a proper Best of for this decade; I'd think they'd need at least two more albums in the next five years (do-able, but I don't know if they'd want to).

Yes; they would qualify. Though they are from a 2000 album, both were released as singles in 2001. :)

Wasn't it 46664? Or something like that... Nelson Mandela's prison number or something, right? I could be way off. I'm in la-la land today. I know what you're talking about though, and I really liked that one.

I think we still have one or two perhaps two albums (if we are lucky) before 2010, so it might be a bit early to speculate on a full track list. But, we will probably see:

Elevation
Walk On
New Yrok
(if they qualify)

Vertigo
City of Blinding Lights
Love and Peace (or Else)
Yahweh
Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own

4 or 5 songs from any albums not yet released

1 new song.

???

Some of the songs mentioned in other posts would probably be on the B-sides disc, if at all. I don't think Children of the Revolution should be in, not because it isn't a good song, but because it is a cover arrainged by Seezer and Friday with Bono singing. The rest of the group took no part in the song. That would be like putting theme from The Batman on this Best of, or the Mission Impossible theme on the 1990 - 2000 Best Of.

Unless Love and Peace or Else and Yahweh are released as singles, they likely won't qualify. And was New York ever a single? I know remixes were commissioned, 'cause they ended up as b-sides to the Electrical Storm single, but I don't think the song was ever properly promoed or released...

Agreed on Children of the Revolution. While it would be a nice addition, it would be completely out of place, and not at the heart of U2.
