It is difficult to rate a single because usually it means rating a song or two or three tracks, and frankly, if you are buying this single you are probably already a U2 fan, and a review won't necessarily move you one way or the other.
However, I also find it nice to give some insight for those who don't necessarily know what is here and give the advantages and disadvantages of this single.
First the disadvantages. You are getting a song that is available on a complete album, albeit this version is different (and probably better) than what appears on "POP" but is available on the recent "Best of 1990-2000" compilation. You are only getting three songs, and you could wait for the standard B-Sides album that comes with U2's greatest hits.... One song is not even sung by U2 (Willie Nelson) with a U2 sung version already available on the "Stay..." single.
Ok, the advantages. Contrary to my statement, U2 did not put these songs on the B-Sides compilation. The song "Two Shots of Happy, One Shot of Sad" is perhaps one of the greatest B-Sides of the last 10 years by U2, and it was written for Frank Sinatra's 80th birthday. This song demonstrates the versitility U2 have. "Slow Dancing" with Willie Nelson is actually quite cool and is how the song was meant anyway. It is a country song, and Willie Nelson's voice shows that. Again, U2's diversity shines through. Last of all, Sunday Bloody Sunday here is a live acoustic version that is perhaps the best I've heard... and... Edge sings and performs it solo. Awesome.
This is one of the more essential U2 singles in my opinion.

This CD is really a U2 EP, and not a 45. It is a superb collection, especially the B-tracks. The first track is the radio edit of "If God will Send His Angels," which has some trumpets shaved off the album track, but it is basically the same piece of music. It has Bono's anguish almost growing into a weird mixture of despair and impatience. It is not as hubric as "Wake Up Dead Man," and has a punchier rap feel to the lyrics. You hear Bono's Christianity shine through again!
"Slow Dancing" has Willie Nelson (yes, THAT Willie Nelson) doing lead vocals on a song. This is one of the rare times that U2 becomes a back-up band to another singe, the other time being Johnny Cash's cameo on Zooropa's "the Wanderer." The voice is the nasal Nelson, but the lyrics are pure Bono.
"Two Shots of Happy, One shot of Sad" is a birthday present to Frank Sinatra (yes, THAT Frank Sinatra), which is a reprise to Bono and Blue Eyes duet of "Under My Skin." It is an experimental piece that demands to be on the next B-sides collection to the next "Best of U2 1990-2000." This song has the soul of Sinatra's own "My way," and is a killer piece of music.
The last track is a tripped down version of "Sunday, Bloody Sunday," so don't expect the "Rattle and Hum" film version. It is just the Edge, his guitar, and the truth from a Sarajevo concert. This band has a soul, and I am glad this signature song is still being played.
This CD-Really-an-EP is a great snapshot of the mature, evolved U2, the Boy has finally become a man, and no longer needs to prove himself.

Chills run right through me, to the heart and soul of me evertime i hear this disc. Allbeit a watered down radio version of "if God will send..."the other tracks are mesmerizing. If you can appreciate a modern day waltz, and get passed the fact that willie nelson's voice carries the message, then you can feel bono whisper the words to you..."my love is cruel as the night, she steals the sun and shuts out the light..." "slow dancin" is the hilite on here to me. But let's not forget "two shots..." if you'd just gotten rid of the goose bumps from "slow dancin", hold on! We're not finished yet! I always knew Bono had the makings of a poet, but his voice delivers a thousand times more electricity than the lyric on this one. I feel carried off into that smokey lounge, bar fly next to me, Frank himself couldn't have done it better. Thank you for the ride Bono. Don't ever bring me back!

This one contains four tracks: "If God Would Send His Angels" [single version]. This one is not as good as the version on 'Pop' - the lyrics are cut, and the arrangement is a bit less daring (interesting) than the original. "Slow Dancing" [with Willie Nelson]. Although originally written for Willie Nelson, the attempt to duet with the famous country singer (as they did quite successfully on 1993's "The Wanderer" with Johnny Cash) is clearly inferior to the all-acoustic version of this song can be found on the "Stay" single. "Two Shots of Happy, One Shot of Sad." Originally written for Frank Sinatra, this is not one of U2's strongest b-sides. "Sunday Bloody Sunday" [live]. This version of this song (with Edge alone on vocal and guitar) is the sole reason why the CD-single is a must for any hardcore U2 fan.

If God will send his Angels is probably the best song on POP album. Very intresting are two other songs that appear on the single. One Shot Of Happy, Two Shots Of Sad a piece tha Bono has sung for Frank Sinatra's 80th birthday is warm but tricky piece of music that shiver down the spine. Slow Dancing is a song written for Willie Nelson in 1988 and man himself is a guest vocalist on the song with Bono singing the chorus. It is a wonderful slow and moody song about the love between a man and a stronger woman. Live version of Sunday, Bloody Sunday taken from legendary concert in Sarajevo, BiH rom 23.september 1997 is wonderful with The Edge singing the song. One guitar, one voice version is rare and unike. If you are concider buying any single from POP or ZOOROPA this is the single to buy! Superb!!!
