Submit Your Top 10 Non Album Tracks
« on: December 20, 2017, 02:27:20 PM »
For my next list, letís do some deep cuts. List your top 10 U2 songs that did not appear on any commercially released studio album. And a different version of the song, live or remix, is still ineligible if a different version of the song appeared on a studio album.

List of Eligible Songs
If a song appeared on a soundtrack without appearing additionally on a studio album
Album bonus tracks (anything not the narrowest track listing version of the album)
B sides
Outtakes
Songs made specifically for compilations but arenít on the albums being compiled
Songs on raritie albums
Songs only performed live
Singles that never made it onto an album

Note: Passengers will be considered a U2 studio album. Only include songs from that era if they werenít on the album.

Here is mine:
Deep in the Heart
Spanish Eyes
Sweetest Thing
11 O Clock Tick Toc
Hold Me Kiss Me Thrill Me Kill Me
Levitate
The Crystal Ballroom
Salome
Luminous Times
Mercy

Clarification: songs that had parts that were later cannibalized to make other songs, like Native Son, are permissible as long as they are original enough that it isnít just an earlier version of a subsequent song under a different name.

Does this mean Lady with the Spinning Head and Native Son are not elligible because they became different songs that made an album?

1-5 should have been on a proper album IMO. The others are good B-sides.

1. Love Comes Tumbling
2. Stateless
3. 11 O'Clock Tick Tock
4. Winter
5. Ordinary Love (extraordinary mix)
6. Race Against Time
7. The Three Sunrises
8. Invisible
9. Disappearing Act
10. Night and Day (from Red Hot + Blue)

My U2 Top 10: The Unforgettable Fire, Acrobat, New Year's Day, Gloria, The Fly, A Sort of Homecoming, Where The Streets Have No Name, Bad, Ultra Violet (Light My Way), Drowning Man

Good question! I rule that songs that were cannibalizes for parts still are valid. Because the whole is bigger than the sum of its parts. Lady and Native Son are permissible!

LOL you are finding every loophole i left unaccounted for! In general, the STUDIO TRACKS from rattle and hum are not allowed. But since Silver and Gold was live, even though its on an officially recognized U2 album, ill accept it. As for Saturday Night, my rule for songs that were used for other songs is, was that song more than 50% original? If so, its eligible, if it isn't, then its an early version of Fire. ill leave that up to your good discretion.

I guess since all the lyrics on SN are different, and the main guitar riff, I'll count it.
