Discography & Releases / Construction Ahead. Use Caution.
« Last post by Aaron on May 14, 2020, 07:24:52 PM »
Just a heads up...we've started reconstruction on some parts of the discography.  The first casualty was the singles page.  You can see the new version here:

https://www.u2songs.com/discography/singles/

We're working to incorporate a few more graphics around the site. Older versions will still be around, but will be gathered later in a text only section. 

As part of the clean up we're once again looking at the digital only section and questioning exactly what purpose it serves. Do we really need a separate entry for "Wide Awake in Europe" as a 12-inch record and as a digital stream from U2.Com? Well probably not. It just adds some confusion as people try to find information about releases. We combined the two entries and did a bit of clean up on them here:

https://www.u2songs.com/discography/u2_wide_awake_in_europe_single

You can find them under the new singles page. Yes, it's gone from the digital only section at this time.

We will look to expand the digital section a bit but with a clearer purpose of what we are collecting there. The team are tossing around definitions of what will belong there, and once we come to a consensus we'll share those thoughts, but feel free if you want to chime in and suggest we take one path or another.

While you are on the Wide Awake in Europe page, if you look down to the bottom you'll see some new scans as well. I invested in a better scanner which allows me to do large flatbed scans - including some decent scans of 12-inch vinyl without a lot of editing after. I've gone through and finished scanning most of my 7-inch singles over the past few months, and I've started working on 12-inches. You'll see them fill in slowly, and I'm starting with the early ones and going in order, but this one from 2010 was needed to finish off the new singles section. 

Also working in the background on several new sections which aren't yet ready to be shared, but we're finally getting things into the shape we were hoping to get them to when we moved into the new home in 2015.  Thanks for sticking around. The journey isn't over. Just getting started.  :)

!. Gloria- What street or section did Adam live on in Malahide?
Bono says “from the ? Malahide?”

2. At the end of Get Out of Your Own Way B says
“blessed are the birds in the zoo and the birds in the ?

There might be one or two other question marks I've forgotten already. :)

The other name in NYD is Blixa Bargeld
Ard Na Mara Estate? Estates? One of the two for Adam

As for the birds is it behrs? I'm not quite catching it...

This should precede COBL. And still can't get a couple names.


New Year's Day (Live From Berlin, Nov. 13, 2018) (Digital U2.com)

Blessed is Berlin
Gesegnet ist Berlin
A great European city
The city of Bertolt Brecht, Max Ernst, Marlene Dietrich
Wim (?) Wenders, (?)
Ha, ha
Connie (?)

All is quiet on New Year's Day
A world in white gets underway
I wanna be with you be with you
Night and day
Nothing changes New Year's Day
On New Year’s Day

I will be with you again / I…I
I will be with you again / I…I

Under a blue and starry sky
A crowd has gathered in black and white
Arms entwined not like a chosen few
The newspapers says it’s true
It's true, it's true
People break through
Though torn in two, we can be one

I, I will begin again / I…I
I, I will begin again / I…I

Oh maybe the time is right
Oh...maybe tonight

I will be with you again / I…I
I will be with you again / I…I
With you again

Wim and Donita Wenders (his wife.)
Conny Plank - the west German record producer who almost did "War" with U2
Didn't get a chance to listen to the other...but I've added these to the database.

 13 (There Is A Light) Live From Berlin Nov. 13, 2018 (Digital, U2.com)

This is 13 There Is A Light

And if the terrors of the night
Come creeping into your days
And the world comes stealing children from your room
Guard your innocence from hallucination
And know that darkness always gathers around the light

There is a light we can’t always see
If there is a world we can’t always be
If there is a dark that we shouldn’t doubt
There is a light don’t let it go out

When the wind screams and shouts
And the sea is a dragon's tail
And the ship that stole your heart away sets sail
All you've left is leaving
And all you got is grieving
And all you know is needing
Ah-da-da-da, ah-da-da-da-da, ah-da

There is a light you can’t always see
If there is a world we can’t always be
If there is a dark that we shouldn’t doubt
And there is a light don’t let it go out

This is a song
A song for someone
Someone like me

I know the world is dumb
You don't have to be
I've got a question for the child in you before it leaves

Are you tough enough to be kind?
Do you know your heart has its own mind?
Darkness gathers around the light
Hold on, hold on

There is a light we can’t always see
If there is a world we can’t always be
If there is a dark that we shouldn’t doubt
There is a light don’t let it go out

This is a song
A song for someone
This is a song
A song for someone
Someone like me
Someone like me
Someone like me

Gute Nacht, Berlin
Honey, I'm home

Love is Bigger Than Anything in Its Way (Live From Berlin, Nov 13, 2018) (Digital U2. Com)

Oh oh oh-oh oh oh
Oh oh oh-oh oh oh
Oh oh oh-oh oh oh
Oh oh oh-oh oh oh / C'mon
Oh oh oh-oh oh oh
Oh oh oh-oh oh oh
Oh oh oh-oh oh oh
Oh oh oh-oh oh oh

The door is open to go through
If I could I would come too
But the path is made by you
As you’re walking, start singing and stop talking

Oh
If I could hear myself when I say
Oh
Love is bigger than anything in its way
Oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh

So young to be the words of your own song
I know the rage in you is strong
So write a world where we can belong
To each other and sing it like no other

Oh
If I could hear myself when I say
Oh
Love is bigger than anything in its way
Oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh / Here's Devin, we love you

If the moonlight caught you crying on Killiney Bay
Oh sing your song, let your song be sung
If you listen you can hear the silence say
When you think you’re done, you’ve just begun

Love is bigger than anything in its way
Love is bigger than anything in its way
Love is bigger than anything in its way / Oh oh oh-oh oh oh
Love is bigger than anything in its way
Love is bigger than anything in its way /  Oh-oh oh-oh oh oh
Oh oh oh-oh oh oh) x 10

Danke for die geile Abend
Danke schön, Berlin

One (Live From Berlin, Nov.13, 2018) (Digital U2.com


Now you know these are strange times
But we don't agonize, we organize
Isn't that right?
Turns out sticking together is the thing
Is that not right Edge, is that not right Larry, is that not right Adam?
I told you the band couldn't see eye to eye when we were recording
Achtung Baby In Hansa Studios here in 1990
We sorta run out of love with the U2 project
It can happen and Berlin was a, a big turn around for us
Because we wrote a song that we really really really
Needed to hear
And the song is called. “One'

Is it getting better
Do you feel the same
Will it make it easier on you now
You got someone to blame

You say one love, one life
When it's one need in the night
One love, we get to share it
It leaves you baby, if you don't care for it

Did I disappoint you
Or leave a bad taste in your mouth
You act like you never had love
And you want me to go without

Well it's too late tonight
To drag the past out into the light
We're one, but we're not the same
We get to carry each other, carry each other
One...love
(Turn off the lights, Rocky)

Have you come here for forgiveness
(Stick with us)
Have you come to raise the dead
Have you come here to play Jesus
To the lepers in your bed

Did I ask too much
More than a lot
You gave me nothing
Now it's all I've got
We're one, but we're not the same
Yeah we hurt each other then we do it again


You say, love is a temple
Love a higher law

Love is a temple, love a higher law
You ask me to enter, but then you made me crawl
I can't be holding on to what you got
When all you got is hurt

One love, one blood
One life you gotta do what you should
One life with each other
Sisters, brothers

One life but we're not the same
We get to carry each other, carry each other
One

No them, there's only us
No them, there's only us
No them, there's only us, only us now

Ooo...
Ooo...

City of Blinding Lights (Live From Berlin, Nov. 13, 2018) (Digital U2.com)

C'mon
Oh yeah
City of Blinding Lights, right now, at this time in the world, Berlin

The more you know the less you know
The less you find out as you grow
I knew much more then
Than I do now

Neon heart, day-glow eyes
A city lit by fireflies
They’re advertising in the skies
For people like us

And I miss you when you’re not around
I’m, I'm getting ready to leave the ground
Ooo…ooo...
Oh you look so beautiful tonight
In the city of blinding lights

Don’t look before you laugh
Look ugly in a photograph
Flash bulbs, purple irises
The camera can’t see

I’ve seen you walk unafraid
I’ve seen you in the clothes you made
Can you see the beauty inside of me?
What happened to the beauty I had inside of me?

And I miss you when you’re not around
I, I’m getting ready to leave the ground
Ooo…ooo...
Oh you look so beautiful tonight
In the city of blinding lights

Do it, c'mon now

Time
Time
Time
Time

Time won’t leave me as I am
Time won’t take the boy out of this man

Oh you look so beautiful
Oh you look so beautiful
Oh you look so beautiful tonight
In the city of blinding lights

The more you know the less you feel
Some pray for, others steal
Blessings not just for the ones who kneel
Luckily

It's Berlin, not Washington, not London
It's Berlin, city of blinding lights
Hold on to your light, you have it, we love you
Whatever your difficulties you're where it's at, right now
And we give thanks, danke, danke schön, danke wurden, danke
