So much you’ll U2 in your pants!

Okay, it’s been two weeks since my last post. I should come clean and tell you all why. The truth is that I’ve spent the past 14 days in a detox rehab facility undergoing….just bullshitting you, the horribly uninteresting truth is that I’ve just been busy as all hell with school and settling in to my new house. The fact that Halo 3 came out had absolutely nothing to do with the lack of updates at all…nope, not one bit.

Incidentally, if anyone out there wants to play co-op campaign on Halo 3 with me send me a message or email and we’ll hook up sometime. I suck hardcore and I need help on Heroic difficulty. My suck knows no bounds.

Anyways, I hope to update a lot this week to make up for lost time. I shall make no promises though since every time I do I break them. I will make up for the lapse in posts by making this one honkin’ huge though. I think this might be my biggest non-Urgh! post ever.

Holy crapoly this is a lot of U2. I’m going to separate these by single, it’ll be easier that way.

Unchained Melody
Everlasting Love
These two covers are from the 12” single for ‘All I Want Is You’, which is from Rattle & Hum. Both are actually quite good and actually make both the chronically overplayed songs listenable and fun. Both of these also appear on the B-sides disc to the band’s first greatest hits collection.

The Three Sunrises
A Sort Of Homecoming
Love Comes Tumbling
Bass Trap
All four of these tracks are on the single for ‘The Unforgettable Fire’. This version of ‘A Sort Of Homecoming’ is different than the mix that appears on the EP Wide Awake In America and on the greatest hits B-side disc. This version of ‘Bass Trap’ is significantly different than the one that appeared on the B-side disc as well, being much longer. The version of ‘Love Comes Tumbling’ is the same one from the B-side disc though, and not the version from Wide Awake In America.

On a side-note, ‘Bass Trap’ minus one-letter is has to be the title to a porno.

Who’s Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses (Temple Bar Remix)
Paint It Black
Fortunate Son
These are from the 12” for ‘Who’s Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses.’ None of these are available anywhere else (except for that ridiculous “virtual box set” on iTunes). Unlike the covers on the ‘All I Want Is You’ single these aren’t that great. Although their take on ‘Paint It Black ‘isn’t the worst I’ve ever heard. It’s definitely better than Gob’s awful version. My money for the best cover of the Stones’ classic still goes to Echo And The Bunnymen though.

Even Better Than The Real Thing (The Perfecto Mix)
Even Better Than The Real Thing (Appollo 440 Stealth Sonic Remix)
Even Better Than The Real Thing (V16 Exit Wound Remix)
Mysterious Ways (Solar Plexus Extended Club Mix)
Mysterious Ways (Apollo 440 Magic Hour Remix)
Mysterious Ways (Tabla Motown Remix)
Finally, these assorted remixes are off of their respected 12” singles. The Perfecto and V16 remixes are by Paul Oakenfold in case you are wondering.

Peek-A-Boo (Dance Velocity)
The dominance of U2 over Devo in this post has nothing to do with my personal preference of either band, there just happened to be an assload of U2 singles at the record store last week. I like this Devo song more than any of the U2 tunes to be honest.

ZZ Top
Legs (Special Dance Mix)
I previously posted a “Special Dance Mix” of ‘Legs’ before. This is not the same one, it is in fact twice as long as previously said mix. This mix should’ve been named “The Long Legs Mix”. I wonder if I could get a job naming remixes for artists? I think I have enough experience! Hey, if the dudes that name Erasure remixes are reading this, hook me up.
