Unreleased songs are in red. No songs (with the possible exception of "Ito Okashi" if you count OS1 as a U2 album) which have been on an actual U2 release are on here. Those that have been released on other artists' albums are at least not very well known amongst most U2 fans. If you're going to include a Passengers song ,why not make it one that we haven't all heard a bajillion times before and that is available on multiple other releases? "Ito Okashi" fits the bill perfectly; and it's certainly an equal to "Miss Sarajevo". And if you plan on using "Stuck" at least do the original studio version which remains unreleased. A fair few live versions, since that is where most of their collaborations seem to take place, but none of them have been released either. "The Wanderer" includes Bono's original lyric take mixed in with Cash's vocals to create a duet in the song. "Stranded" is at least a new mix, and very few people own a legitimate copy of "The Ballad of Ronnie Drew". Not sure where the live version of "ISHFWILF" is from, but a clip of it is on the Joshua Tree Classic Albums DVD and sounds awesome, so they must have it somewhere.

It might just be me, but I think that this tracklist would have been much more satisfying to fans.
