Hello Hello!!


August 25th, 2006

Famous error on "The Joshua Tree" CDs @ 01:35 pm

mmmmjournal:
"O, great ocean/O, great sea/Run to the ocean/Run to the sea"

Do you prefer that section as the ending of "One Tree Hill," or do you like it better as the beginning of "Exit?" Or should it be a completely seperate track? :)

One Tree Hill is track9 and Exit is track10, yet the above phrase is used in track10, not 9.

On some editions anyway. I believe the error was corrected in later prints.

Just make it a seperate track, that way we can have 12 Joshua Tree songs instead of just 11 (or 20 if you burned all the B-sides like I did)

I can't imagine associating that part with Exit. It's the perfect ending to One Tree Hill. :)

On the contrary, I think it's the perfect beginning to Exit. :D

I've always seen it as part of "One Tree Hill". The words just sort of seem to fit better to me than the next song.

I've always looked at it as being part of One Tree Hill. Although, growing up my father and I had these notorious bicker-ments where one had to competely deny what the other said, so as a child I always yelled at him that it was actually meant for Exit.

So many of my good memories are tied with U2, I dont know that I could say the same for any other band.

I hate that error so much that instead of ripping those two tracks directly to my iPod, I went and redownloaded them, with the correct seperations. I like One Tree Hill, but I LOVE Exit, and the last thing I need to hear at the beginning of such a dark, intense, creepy track is "OooOOOOH greaaat oceaaAAANN!"
It's almost as bad as having Your iPod follow up Love is Blindness with Beautiful Day >_<

Oh man. That'd be a lot worse. *shivers at the thought*

Ok, how did you do that? I would love to at least be able to make that phrase a stand-alone track, if not somehow tack it on to the end of One Tree Hill. As it stands, I never listen to that phrase (and I miss it), because I don't like Exit.

I just whipped open a P2P program (you know, the kind you use to illegally download music), and just happened to hit gold by getting the correctly seperated songs on the first try.
If you want though, you can give me your e-mail address, and I can send you the two tracks as I downloaded them. Or if you really want the "oh great ocean" as it's own little mini-track, I could probably seperate it myself using Audacity and send that too.

If you would send me the two tracks as you downloaded them, that would rock. My e-mail is golddustwman at netscape dot com. THANK YOU!!! :)

It's such a black-and-white contrast to "Exit" though, it seems to open the track with optimism and then plunge into darkness. It's quite a dynamic effect, and to me, "Exit" just doesn't sound right without the unintentional intro.

I'll be the first to admit, I love the error. Dunno why. I just do.

I would like it better as the ending to One Tree Hill. I didn't know it was a mistake! I just thought they were being I don't know... Artistic?

To me, it's the end of "One Tree Hill." I've seen VH1 classic play the video clip of that song, with the above lyric as the ending.

End of OTH, and I prefer it that way. Problem was mostly solved when I got a vinyl copy, which I prefer if I'm playing it at home.

I like it as part of Exit, just to be contrary :)

Also, is everyone else's Exit at a lower volume than the rest of the album...?

Yes. Exit is the "turn your volume up as high as it goes, and then listen hard" song on the album.

Well if you leave it as part of Exit, it's the best thing about the album mix of Exit to begin with.
