Todas as demos do U2!

Todas as demos do U2!

Navegando pelo site @U2, descobri no fórum de discussões um tópico interessantíssimo sobre todas as demos que o U2 trabalhou em estúdio. Para os fãs mais novos, a banda tem a mania de usar “Working Titles”, ou seja, títulos diferentes em canções que acabam sendo lançadas em álbums e singles.

Algumas dessas raridades tem vindo a tona com a onda de relançamentos feita recentemente; Assim, descobrimos “Disappearing Act”, a instrumental “Yoshino Blossom”  e uma nova versão de “A Sort of Homecoming” na reedição de “The Unforgettable Fire”; “Rise Up”, “Desert of Our Love” e “Wave Of Sorrow” (que tinha o working title de “Birdland” na época) para o box de “The Joshua Tree”, e muitas outras.

Nesse novo “über” box dos sonhos do “Achtung Baby”, teremos a oportunidade de ouvir faixas como “Down All The Days” (que viria a se tornar “Numb” em “Zooropa”), “Near The Island”, “Oh! Berlin”, além das já manjadas “Blow Your House” e “Heaven and Hell”, que fazem parte do mais famoso bootleg de demos da banda, “Salomé”.

Mas, a idéia desse post não é ficarmos falando de faixas que pouca gente ouvi, e sim, tentar fazer com TODOS tenham a oportunidade de conhecê-las!

O objetivo é o seguinte; Vou listar aqui todas as demos e working titles conhecidos e listados no fórum da @U2 e gostaria que todos os UV’s que frequentam a lista e o site que possuam esse material nos indiquem ou um vídeo do YouTube ou o cd/arquivo que possua tais faixas. Várias delas serão bem fáceis de encontrar, algumas, precisaremos da ajuda dos colecionadores mais ávidos e seus cd’s empoeirados. Vamos tentar também alguma citação em algum livro ou reportagem, mencionando alguma explicação sobre tal faixa.

Topam o desafio?
