5.0 out of 5 stars B-sides make this one very much worth it! Oct. 17 2005
Format:Audio CD
I agree with a previous reviewer, the single version of IF GOD WILL SEND HIS ANGELS is not as good as the version on the POP album. They cut out part of the first verse and moved part of the middle part to the end ("where is the hope, where is the faith and the love").
But the b-sides make up for it and make this a worthy item to add to your collection. SLOW DANCING is a countryesque song done by the classic crooner Willie Nelson. TWO SHOTS OF HAPPY, ONE SHOT OF SAD is done in a Sinatra jazzy sort of style .. Bono the lounge performer! The version of SUNDAY BLOODY SUNDAY is quiet without any drumming but very nice (recorded in the recently war-torn Sarajevo).
Buy it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely Song!! April 21 2003
By Bond
Format:Audio CD
I love this CD!! The Bsides are ok, but the main hit is a MUST! This is one of my favourite u2 songs, after the fantastic hit "Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses".

4.0 out of 5 stars As always, the B-Sides are the gems March 5 2003
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Willie Nelson makes this single worthwhile. May 10 2002
Format:Audio CD
I have no issue with the CD-Single. The addition of the duet with Willie Nelson accentuates this in that it brings back memories of Willie Nelson's early gospel work like the classic song "Family Bible." Good team effort.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mysticism - Pentecostal & Beneficial May 8 2002
Format:Audio CD
Good mystical music content throughout. Willie Nelson really shows the Pentecostal agape nnointing when he begins to sing. I'm not usually a fan of cover songs but I always make exceptions for Willie. Willie seems to understand what Bono is trying to do.
I recommend without reservation. Two thumbs up!

5.0 out of 5 stars A perfect CD single? YES! It is really an EP! Feb. 20 2002
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Absolute Must-Have! Feb. 8 2002
Format:Audio CD
I love this single! I think that it is a necessary part of any U2 collection. It says a lot about a band when the stuff that doesn't make the album is amazing. U2 is so diversified in their music. The live "Sunday Bloody Sunday" sung by Edge make the CD worth buying. I love every song. It is worth much more than their asking!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as original version Oct. 21 2000
By S B
Format:Audio CD
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.
