The weekly U2 charts

THE U2 TOP 148 AS OF 25/07/03

Tracks taken from the following CDs: Boy, October, War, Under A Blood Red Sky*, The Unforgettable Fire, Wide Awake In America*, The Joshua Tree, Rattle And Hum**, Achtung Baby, Zooropa, Pop, Best Of 1980-1990***, All That You Can’t Leave Behind, Beautiful Day single, and Best Of 1990-2000 and the B-Sides****, and selected files off my hard drive. However, no tracks from videos (unless they are on my hard drive) are included*****.

* Due to the fact 6 out of 8 of the tracks from Under A Blood Red Sky and 2 out of 4 tracks from Wide Awake In America appear on other CDs, the UABRS and WAIA versions are noted in brackets.
** Due to some tracks on Rattle And Hum appearing on other CDs, the Rattle And Hum versions are noted in brackets.
*** Only one song is taken from Best Of 1980-1990 (Sweetest Thing). Some versions of other songs may be different to their original version, but not enough for me to warrant ranking them separately.
**** From Best Of 1990-2000 are taken the two new songs and those songs which have New Mixes appearing on the CD. Remixes are not taken from the B-Sides CD (although, due to my personal preference of the original version of Electrical Storm over the William Orbit Remix, the ranking of ES is actually for the one on the B-Sides), but the songs which don’t appear on other CDs in my collection are taken (those songs being Your Blue Room, Salome, Happiness Is A Warm Gun, Lady With The Spinning Head, and North And South Of The River).
***** All good rules have an exception, and this one is no exception. Because I like four video tracks so much, I am including them in the charts. These tracks are Exit, Bad, and Sunday Bloody Sunday (All from RAH), and 11 O’clock Tick Tock (from UABRS). Any other tracks from videos that appear, I actually have on my hard drive.
