Ok, re: "Love is Bigger" climbing the Billboard dance club charts. How seriously can we take that? From what I can tell, Billboard doesn't distinguish between which version/remix of the song is being played in clubs. So it would seem to me that anyone with the money to commission 32 (and counting!) damn remixes of a song is going to inevitably end up on those charts. The market is beyond flooded. Or is there actually a version or versions that is getting serious play more than others?

No the chart is as you suspect, a compilation of all club reported play. And what better way to get 30 DJs to add it to their set than to get 30 DJs to remix it?

But it's still a fair measure I think, as everyone seems to be doing the same thing. I've seen so many mentions of these same DJs doing Celine Dion's Ashes, from the Deadpool soundtrack, that I've actually come to expect some of the same names to pop up on U2...and sure enough they have...

U2 Related Talk / SaC Tour
« Last post by slaneman on June 18, 2018, 11:22:27 AM »
For weeks we were forced to move our U2 discussions from place to place. Now we are finally back in our original comfy quarters.


Original comfy quarters

Before I bring you up to date on our latest scintillating chat, I must confess that these recent upheavals in our normal weekly schedule caused some of our members to nickname our sessions the 'sarcasm and cynicism tour for geezers'. But let's not dwell on such frivolous comments. Some of us are still trying to make U2 chats great again. Both North and South of the river.

Here are my minutes of our last meeting.

1) Edna announced that she has purchased a new stereo system.


Edna's new stereo system.

The above picture was taken before the aviation warning lights were installed. Rest assured her new system will comply with all aviation regulations.

Now, as some of you audiophiles know, you can't get good sound using cheap hookup cables, so I was asked to recommend some better speaker wires and interconnects. I brought in Chief Running-to-stand-still and his Snake Oil band for support.


slaneman recommends better cables

Given the current trends in playback media, Edna wanted to make sure her new rig would play any of the older, out-of-date formats that hipsters might start playing in their retro mania. This might mean going way back to the time of the Edison disc. Thanks to a brand new remastering process, Edna will be able to play these original recordings.

2) Our member Wheelchair Willy was able to snap a picture of the person solely responsible for the recent vinyl trend. Willy's tireless research has finally permitted every internet music related forum to focus their comments, pro or con, on this individual. Willy was unable to gather any further information, but you may just call this individual, 'the hipster with no name'. I think he lives in a dry and waterless place in some desert, catching flies.


Hipster with no name



3) We discussed the amazing plethora of LIB remixes. The current number of LIB remixes has surpassed the number for any previous U2 song. The reason for such a plethora is not clear. (We can barely spell the word). There are now more LIB remixes than there are edits of the Red Rocks show. Well...maybe not...yet

Various theories have been advanced by theoretical physicists. Unfortunately professor Hawking recently passed away, but Leonard Susskind was kind enough to offer some of his theories.

'All we can conclude at this time is that it might have something to do with dark energy and the accelerating expansion of space'.

Many others have argued, fairly convincingly, that the cosmological theory of the quilted multiverse comes closest to explaining this astounding number of remixes. It seems all the Djs in all the clubs in all the world have been sent the seeds and stems for LIB.

U2 is being introduced to thousands of totally drugged out youngsters jumping up and down in unison. None of our members here at the dungeon...um, I mean Old Folks Home, have the slightest interest in remixes. We do, however, often find ourselves jumping up and down at the prices we have to pay for our daily drugs.

Moving on.


4) We discussed the latest news that Island Music has just constructed a new storage facility for U2 releases.  We have been told by our U2 insider, Frank Furnace, second cousin, twice removed, from a U2 War Tour tech support man, to keep the location of this facility secret, on pain of being forced to listen to all the LIB remixes in alphabetical sequence thru a pair of Beats headphones.

Wow. That's a fate worse than being punctured thru the skin by Edna's knitting needles.

Many of our members here at the old folks home argued that this new warehouse is meant for the latest fan club bonus, 3-D Dance Mixes. It could also be for unsold copies of the latest vinyl reissues. There were the usual snorts about the Passengers reissue. We were able to snap a photo from our secret drone.

Trades & Requests / Re: Mexican CD albums for trade
« Last post by WilliamHarlow on June 17, 2018, 11:38:42 AM »
::: Unbelievable!

This topic started back in 2006, and since then, there's ONLY ONE Studio Album from the band...in that lapse, probably Metallica has released like 8 new cds, and phen q reviews https://theskinnyvibes.com/phenq-reviews-and-results/ or Coldplay another 4. Shame on you, U2...

Anyway, still have those U2 MEX CDs up for trade or sale!

 Don't pay for them $15 or 19 USD on ebay.

I can get them for you for $9.99 USD + s&h...or we can trade, too.



Some MEX Lp's are available too, ask for a list.

Regards 8)

I'm interested in buying U2 MEX CD. But your post is quite old. Do you still have these CDs? And are you still selling for the same rates? If yes, how to contact you and send money?

Apparently, there'll be another three:

- Love Is Bigger Than Anything In Its Way (Jochen Simms Deep Remix) (5:28)
- Love Is Bigger Than Anything In Its Way (Dark Intensity Remix) (4:28)
- Love Is Bigger Than Anything In Its Way (Isak Salazar & Eric Ibiza Dubby Mix) (7:02)

Yes those were sent on Friday. Although the name we were given for the last one is the Isak Salazar & Erick Ibiza Remix. Track times match what we were given.

I have reliable information that the track indeed is named "Isak Salazar & Erick Ibiza Dubby Mix".

In the discography entry you mention that “Offer Nissim has worked on a remix of this track for U2 and it is part of the official campaign, and we are told that this remix will appear soon. Like Twisted Dee, Nissim released a clip of his remix before it was officially released for promo.”

I wouldn’t agree to that statement. Offer Nissims remix has been posted on the music platform Desire2Music. It is not the extended remix though, however, it definitely is more than a clip.

It was posted that way when he had just released a 10s clip of the song as part of a Pride video. Will try to update the next time we go in.

Should also mention we updated the discography entry yesterday:
http://www.u2songs.com/discography/u2_love_is_bigger_than_anything_in_its_way_promotional_relase

The mixes in the bottom catalog section are grouped based on when they were released if anyone wants an idea of when they came out and with what other mixes.  Have to add in yesterday's release information. Hoping to get to that later today.

And here's a look at how I've been handling the more recent versions...
I also track names when I get it from someone else, so there's a few blanks in the pict where I took out some names...
