|1. Last Night On Earth (Single Version)|
|2. Pop Muzik (Pop Mart Mix)|
|3. Happiness Is A Warm Gun (Gun Mix)|
Another interesting U2 B-side is a cover of the classic Beatles tune Happiness is a Warm Gun. It's a bit funky, and was intended for an ill-fated TV show, but it's a welcome change and a decent cover in the Pop mold.
This disc is certainly for the U2 completist, but I would suggest tracking down the (out of print(?)) US release, which at least contains a 4th track (the Numb Soul Assasins Mix).
"Last Night on Earth" [Single Version]. Compared to the version on 'Pop', this single version has an abbreviated intro, added vocals in the middle section, and louder guitars in the chorus.
"Pop Muzik" [Pop Mart Mix]. The first 4:30 of the instrumental track were used in the opening sequence of the Pop Mart tour, but in this version, Bono "sings". However, the last 4:00 minutes have no purpose at all.
"Happiness is a Warm Gun" [The Gun Mix]. This is an interesting cover of the Beatles classic, originally recorded for an ill-fated TV show. However, for those who were not enthralled with some of the more overworked material on 'Pop', this will be a disappointment.
