  1. I have come to the conclusion that the Passengers album and the Pop album could have been better as a double album that included a few tracks from the era not on either record. I know, I know... Any tampering is sacrilege for some. Well, I couldn't help myself!! Certain tunes I have left off for the sake of the cohesion of the following loose narrative: I see the track listing below as following the story of someone who is in Tokyo, on the town, a lonesome soul, feeling alone in this world... and a fucked up world it is, too. It begins in a rave, heads out through the alleys and under the neon and high rises of the metropolis, then on zipping trains around the city on the way back to the hotel, perhaps with someone they have met, perhaps just imagining that they had met someone... It could have some Blade Runner-esque soundtrack-ish moments placed throughout. As excited as U2 were by their time in Tokyo circa December 1993, it seems to me that this is the record that might've been... First, here are a few clips from that time as a primer of sorts. Enjoy! U2 In Tokyo December 1993 Part 1 Part 2 http://youtu.be/6UNnT9_UfYs U2 Shinjuku LP DISC 1/Nighttown Pop Muzik/ Mofo Discothèque Do You Feel Loved Gone Hold Me Thrill Me Kiss Me Kill Me Last Night On Earth/First Night In Hell (Remix) United Colours Elvis Ate America DISC 2/Your Blue Room One Minute Warning Plot 180 Wake Up Dead Man If God Will Send His Angels Beach Sequence Miss Sarajevo (w/Luciano Pavarotti) Theme From The Swan Ito Okashi (w/Holi) Slug Your Blue Room If You Wear That Velvet Dress Two Shots Happy One Shot Sad Like I said, it starts off with the energy of a rave. It gradually descends into something far more soothing. It definitely conjures mental images of Tokyo at night for me.
