Just received this email and checked out the Spotify playlist with these re-mixes. Didn't have great expectations, considering I can't remember any remix that made any U2 song better.

U2 To Love and Only Love - Deep Dives and B-Sides

https://open.spotify.com/playlist/3OPWZrGu9Mjf8fHfpoXo3U?si=439fae7f4b914c44

And I cannot listen to the remixes, I just find them terrible. So the question is, has any remix any made a U2 songer better ever? Or at least sounded great?

Please share remixes that you think are great.

To answer your question, yes.

But itís not very often that it happens. Most of the time, itís a curiosity more than anything.

One of the Magnificent remixes comes to mind....sure there are others


Magnificent (Fred Falke Full Club Mix)


also The Exile posted a remix of 'Wake up Dead Man' that was pure bliss.  Maybe he can post it again as its probably lost in the thread somewhere.

I think I spent some time cleaning up that version above (the first word of the song--"Jesus"--is mostly missing, which is kind of important). If I find it I'll post it.
Listen as Hope and Peace try to rhyme,
Listen over marching bands playing out their time.

Fish Out of Water remix of Get On Your Boots made that song better for me.

Don't believe there will be any hidden gems in the deep dives. U2 fans will know about it & it won't be hidden if it was any good.

U2 are an album band. They can release good stand alone songs when promoting a greatest hits package or big film.

No great B sides I can think of.
