Re: the Japanese deluxe CD, I have never gone wrong with CD Japan. http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/

I have ordered some U2 discs from there as well as tons of vintage reggae CDs (yes, being a fan of roots reggae is part of my mid-life crisis. Ha!). The listings are in English, or at least sufficiently enough that you can be sure of what you're ordering. Just be sure to choose the right shipping option. If you're willing to wait a bit longer to receive your order, you can get shipping for relatively cheap. They also offer super expensive shipping that will get it to you sooner.

Here's the listing for the deluxe CD with the bonus track. I now see they're also offering this with a "bonus postcard calendar!" whatever that means. Gotta love the Japanese and their commitment to physical product and extra trinkets.

Incredible. I can't stop reading. Many new titles and several that bring back memories, like 'Tenterhook' which was used as a 2005 atu2.com contest question that stump many fans.

I hope someday we might see a 'Partially Released' section for those songs we've heard, but haven't been released commercially.
Examples:
Daddy's Gonna Pay For Your Crashed Car (Perfecto Mix)
46664 (Long Walk to Freedom)
Winter (Brothers Version)
North Star
Original of the Species (Killahurtz Casa de Angeles Remix)
Window in the Skies (Jacknife Lee Mix)
etc...

Cheers,

That's an excellent question. First some info. I never use periods in my transcriptions. Let's see if Aaron sees your question...

How come there are already lyrics on the discography site? Just curious.

Fantastic stuff. I always thought about better understanding the genesis of some U2 songs. With this section it for the first becomes possible. Thanks for putting all this together and making it available. For me U2songs is the best of all the U2 related sites out there. Quality instead of quantity. Keep on going!

Demo songs. Songs we've heard about but may have never heard. U2 over the years have talked about a lot of songs that have never seen the light of day.  So we've launched a new section of the page to discuss these titles, where we heard the name, what became of them over the years and more.  (Sorry no audio / video there, most of these exist in name only...)

http://www.u2songs.com/demos/

Really started tracking these back in 2002 when I attended the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland.  I was obsessed with the list of song titles from "All That You Can't Leave Behind" that had never been released. Spent an hour one day writing them all down.  Always intended to do something with it, and the move to U2Songs finally made it work.  And now we have a listing of all U2's songs.  The ones released (discography and lyrics) and the ones that haven't been. (Demos)

Let us know if you spot anything missing.  We'd love to hear what you think.

*At 13 tracks this is the most songs on a U2 studio album, the high point was previously 12 with Pop and Achtung Baby (R&H had 17 but only 9 were new studio songs)

13 tracks, track 13 called 13 - just another reference to their experience from 13 studio albums so far.

That Milan video doesn't look all that sharp to me. Probably just upconverted from DVD.

I've posted a few upconverted videos with similar results.

Thank you Brad. Thought so. Would be surprised if there was a HD recording.

-  I am reluctant to purchase anything from the other side of the Earth   (will a purchase from Japan really go smoothly?)

It just couldn't be simple, could it?       >:(

It's not that difficult ordering from Japan. There are several websites that are easy to navigate for English speakers. You can use Google translate to make sense of website that aren't in English. There are services in Japan that will bundle packages from several stores in Japan, collect payment, and forward them to the US for a minimal fee. If all that fails the Japanese versions will show up on eBay here in the US but usually for a premium price. I'll be buying the Japanese release for this new album. The only question is do I get the Deluxe CD or go for the full package with vinyl as well.

I've bought the first press of every album from Japan. In addition I've also bought many bootlegs over there. Shipping usually takes about a week and I've never had a problem. From my experience their customer service has been great. I once had a guy run out to the post office to retrieve an already mailed package so he could drop another CD in it. All to save me from paying an extra postage charge.

For the u2songs.com discography listing of the standard jewel case 5-Inch CD of Songs Of Experience
The Track Listing shows 12 tracks, but then . . . . . in Other Notes, it says 13 tracks
 :o

So yes . . . . . . I guess I will be trying to hunt down a digital version of The Backout [Jacknife Lee Remix].  All because:
-  I don't have a record player.  What good does a vinyl record do me?   (i.e. Record Store Day release of the Single)
-  I am reluctant to purchase anything from the other side of the Earth   (will a purchase from Japan really go smoothly?)

It just couldn't be simple, could it?       >:(
