Best Of 1990-2000 - my version! @ 10:21 am

I'm currently feelin: accomplished

Well, I could never be bothered to come up with my own track listing before, but I've done it now, just for the hell of it. This is the Best Of compilation that *I* probably would have put together, had it been up to me. I had some trouble deciding on the order, so I'm not 100% sure about that, but I think the choice of tracks is pretty much right (I initially had more Achtung Baby tracks, but I replaced them with other things to avoid having nearly the whole album on there!).

Best Of 1990-2000

1. The Fly
2. One
3. Discothèque
4. Mofo
5. Stay (Faraway, So Close!)
6. Mysterious Ways
7. Lemon
8. If God Will Send His Angels (Single Version, probably)
9. Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses (Temple Bar Remix, I think)
10. Staring At The Sun
11. Hold Me Thrill Me Kiss Me Kill Me
12. Ultra Violet (Light My Way)
13. Numb
14. Until The End Of The World
15. Do You Feel Loved
16. Please (don't mind which version)
17. Even Better Than The Real Thing

Hidden track: Dirty Day

The B-Sides

1. Lady With The Spinning Head (UV1)
2. I've Got You Under My Skin
3. Holy Joe (Guilty Mix)
4. Salomé
5. Slow Dancing (don't really mind which version)
6. Happiness Is A Warm Gun (don't mind which mix)
7. Where Did It All Go Wrong
8. Your Blue Room
9. Satellite Of Love
10. Two Shots Of Happy, One Shot Of Sad
11. North And South Of The River
12. Night & Day (Steel String Remix)
13. Discothèque (DM Extended Club Mix)
14. Even Better Than The Real Thing (Perfecto Mix)
15. Mysterious Ways (Solar Plexus Extended Club Mix)
16. Lemon (Perfecto Mix)
17. Pop Muzik

As you can see, I wouldn't have bothered including Electrical Storm - I maybe would have released a remix of Ultra Violet or something like that as a single. I also haven't included any ATYCLB material, but if I was forced to, I would have replaced some of the non-singles I stuck on the compilation (e.g. Do You Feel Loved, Mofo, and either Until The End Of The World or Ultra Violet). And I would have had Elevation (Influx Mix) as my hidden track.

Thoughts? Anyone like my compilation?

How could you not include any ATYCLB tracks?? The album is genius...and the real heart of U2!

But it's primarily a 90s collection, and the ATYCLB tracks *so* don't fit in with the 90s stuff....

Yeah...ok...I agree with that. Maybe it should be a 1990-1999 collection then!

Good Choices

I think that is an excellent list. I may change one or two but I agree with it being best of 1990-2000 and leaving off ATYCLB. (Don't get me wrong! I love that album, but it doesn't fit with their 90's stuff, and why not just buy that entire disc anyhow, since it's perfect in my eyes) *Wolff

I agree with most of that. :)

ATYCLB really doesn't belong on there, I agree.
