A day without Boom-Chas @ 01:37 am

stay_please:
I'm currently hearin: Discotheque (the right version!)

I never understood it until now...

(and yes, before you flame me, I know the two songs have different intros, I just wasn't paying attention at that point)

So I was driving to work today, stopped by a train-crossing, twiddling my thumbs in my car. My iPod is hooked to my radio, I'm on shuffle, and I'm getting a pretty good mix of songs. When along comes Discotheque. I'm boppin' my head, lip-synching probably, the weirdo in the truck next to me just might be giving me looks. When all of a sudden...

... at 4:40 the song starts to fade away. I get no boom-chas!!!

I had landed on the New Mix, from the best of 90-00 collection. I actually yelled at my radio to give me my boom-chas back.

I can't say I was impressed with any of the remixes besides Gone, and I blame it on the fact that a guy named Mike Hedges remixed them; up until then I'd never heard of him amongst the U2 camp.

I believe his name pops up in some of the album liner notes, mayyyybe Pop and i think ATYCLB and HTDAAB, but yeah he doesnt seem to be anybody in the forefront. kinda random.

It's damn near blasphemy to remove boomchas.

And unless the tools are sterile you might pick up some Hepitis B as well.

Yeah that mix sucks. I never listen to it. And I hate the Lemon one, too. (Well, sometimes I don't hate it, but most of the time.) I like the others though, I like the Numb one, there is more B-falsetto and that's always good for me.

I remember the first time I listened to it, I was actually really enjoying it, and thought it was an improvement over the original, and then we got to the boomchas... AND THEY WEREN'T THERE, i had nightmares about this thats how traumatized i was

LOl thats funny. Speaking of Pop-era music, whats the latest on the supposed re-recording of Pop? Or any new U2 music at all?

That's a U2 urban legend; Bono was taken out of context. I'm only paraphrasing, but he had said that Pop as an album was technically unfinished when it was released because the planning of PopMart was too soon. Bono had said that they really needed the time to go back and rework it before release.

It's since been spun that the band wishes to go back and rework it. Likely never going to happen.

The first U2 album I got was the Best of 90-00, and Discothéque was my least favourite song on it. After I heard the original, definitive version, it became clear that it was only because of the bloody New Mix. Boom-chas forever.

**shakes head in sadness** There should be a law to prevent such things from happening.
