htdaab track listing @ 02:26 pm

classyrocker630:
Current Location: UNCG library
I'm currently feelin: curious curious
I'm currently hearin: u2 - love and peace or else

I've been meaning to post this question to this community a while back but only just remember about it today when i saw the inquiry about would beauitful day work better as closer than an opener. anyways, my girlfriend and I are huge u2 fans and she loves htdaab much much more than i do i go for acthung baby and pop a lot more but anyways, my biggest problem with htdaab is the tracklisting and a man and a woman(one of least favorite u2 songs) so i made her a revisioned version of htdaab with a new tracklisting and added b-side, please tell me what you guys think, I can't wait to hear your opinions. 

1. City of Blinding Lights
2. Mercy
3. All Because of You
4. Original Of the Species
5. MIracle Drug
6. One Step Closer
7. Sometimes You Can't Make it on Your Own
8. Yahweh
9. Crumbs From Your Table
10Love and Peace or Else
11 Vertigo
12 Fast Cars

p.s - i got the super special edition of htdaab so fast cars is techinally apart of the album to me at least. 

p.p.s - what tracklisting would like to change the most out of any U2 album?

1. Great opener. Definitely.
2. Can't comment on Mercy as I don't know the song. However, I think Vertigo needs to be one of the first three songs, so maybe ABOY could be track 2 and Vertigo can be #3.
3. I know it's just what we're all used to, but I can't separate Miracle Drug, Sometimes and LAPOE. They need to be together.
4. Yahweh HAS to be towards the end. I have the album with Yahweh as the closer, and I think it's the perfect positive note to end on.
5. Fast Cars is definitely the only closer I can think of for this album. It belongs right where you have it!

Sorry if I sounded too disagreeable. I think the album is perfect just the way it's arranged. To me, it's like telling a story in chronological order and this is how the story is supposed to go.

i'll send u mercy somehow(i'll figure it out once i get home) but i totally understnad where you are coming from, it;s cool to be disagreeable it's not like i;'m bill o'liely! i put yahweh where i did because it is a postive song and it comes at the end of 2 horribly depressing songs about his father's death and htdaab to me tells a story i however felt it chpaters were in the worng place :) but you're input is awesome and so is your icon!

Personally I wouldn't change a thing about HTDAAB, I think it's perfect just the way it is. :)  And I don't think Mercy is up to the standard of the rest of the album, it would have spoiled the flow a bit, IMHO...

I've seen a few people re-ordering Bomb and I've tried them out and still found a missing ingredient. I'll try yours when I have the time and see how it flows.

It's relatively easy to understand why the order of songs on Achtung Baby is spot on and adds the unknowable element that makes the album perfection, but I've never been able to put my finger on why the order of songs on Joshua Tree has the same effect.

It's amazing, isn't it, how the order is so important? (And how I don't seem to particularly notice it with most other artists and albums, but with U2 I always do.)

I wouldn't change a thing about the song order of Atomic Bomb, except for taking Yahweh off the album altogether. I just flat out hate that song.

Every time I listen to Mercy, I wonder why it wasn't on the album. I think it's amazing.

I like the order of HTDAAB, except in the special edition I don't really like Fast Cars coming after Yahweh. Maybe it could be moved to before COBL
