For those of you, like me, who have been complaining about "Walk On" and "Elevation" missing out on the Best of 1990-2000 CD...a friend made a good point to me yesterday...and I don't think it's been mentioned here.

The 2 songs mentioned above weren't actually released as singles until 2001...where as "Beautiful Day" and "Stuck in a moment..." (just!) had been released, as singles, during 2000. Therefore, "Elevation" and "Walk On" will most likely be on the next Best Of CD (2000-2010) to be released in 10 years time. maybe(??).

Well...of course they will...because U2 has AT LEAST another 3 great albums in them (starting from early next year!). So along with ATYCLB...there will be much need for a Best of 3! Yeah...ok...long way away though. But silly me hadn't considered it yet.

A band such as U2 is bound to have a few songs that should of been on a greatest hits package but are not. "Please" and "the Fly" should of been on the cds but weren't. What can ya do? Make your own cd!!

Why would they have to have been released as singles to appear on a 'Best Of' album?

Oh man. Tape? laughs.

You're missing out on a lot of things. Of course you could miss out on cds all together with DVD-audio discs appearing now. ;-)

SIAM was released in 2001 here in Europe.
I doubt that's the real reason, or else why would ES that was released in 02 be on the CD?
Most probably just band preference but who knows?!

yes...but the "official" release of SIAM what 2000. The ES was a special case because it was actually for this CD.

How do you mean the "official" release? It wasnae released over here until 2001, yeah to the radio in late 2000.
But if we are being picky Walk On was released to the radio over here in 2000 as well.

Ah! yes of course but don't forget that Paul made a deal around the Zooropa time (I think) for 8 albums for a helluva lot of money. Like they paid them up front to make sure they would have 8 more albums. So lets seeee.......Best of, Pop, ATYCLB, Best of... YAY FOUR MORE!!!
