What other albums would the SOE songs fit on?
« on: December 04, 2017, 06:36:00 AM »
I thought this might be an interesting exercise.

What other U2 records could these new songs fit on?

Here's my take:

Love is All We Have Left - Zooropa
Lights of Home - Pop
You're The Best Thing About Me - ATYCLB
Get Out of Your Own Way - ATYCLB
American Soul - HTDAAB
Summer of Love - Pop
Red Flag Day - War
The Showman (Little More Better) - Pop
The Little Things That Give You Away - The Joshua Tree
Landlady - Achtung Baby
The Blackout - Achtung Baby
Love Is Bigger Than Anything in its Way - HTDAAB
13 (There is a Light) - Achtung Baby

What are your thoughts?
Let the past die. kill it if you have to.

Hard! I stick to the era, not the album. A lot of album doesn't need an addition. Like Showman, it's more like a Party Girl. That doesn't fit on Boy, October or War, but is a nice song from that era

Love is All We Have Left - Zooropa/passengers
Lights of Home - Pop
You're The Best Thing About Me - Bomb
Get Out of Your Own Way - ATYCLB
American Soul - HTDAAB or Zooropa
Summer of Love - ATYCLB
Red Flag Day - War
The Showman (Little More Better) - Boy to War
The Little Things That Give You Away - Unforgettable Fire / The Joshua Tree
Landlady - Achtung Baby
The Blackout - Achtung Baby / SOI
Love Is Bigger Than Anything in its Way - HTDAAB
13 (There is a Light) - Passengers/No Line/ SOI
Book of Your Heart - Unforgettable Fire/Bomb
See through in the sunlight

You two need to head over to the confessional for this act of defacement! Who in their right mind would tarnish that legendary quartet of 90s records with the likes of Lights Of Home and American Soul? Shameful!  :)

yea i can't really see any of these on pre-ATYCLB albums. RFD fits with War i guess, only cuz of Edge's back up vocals imo.
