Okay, so way back in 2000, there was a dud of a movie called “The Million Dollar Hotel” that had a great soundtrack. U2 had a few tracks on it, including “Never Let Me Go” and “Stateless.” The latter, therefore, didn’t make it onto U2’s instant classic of an album that came out then called “All That You Can’t Leave Behind.”
But NOW the album turns 20 and is getting a big anniversary box set. “Stateless” has been remastered, given its own video, and will be in the box, along with a lot of other cool things. This has been a great box set season– McCartney, Stones, Elton, now U2.
Here’s the new “Stateless.” There’s a remastered video for “Stuck in a Moment You Can’t Get Out of It.” U2 makes me happy, like the Police, REM, and Pretenders, Squeeze and XTC.
