track 1 of this cd,"last night on earth",is kind of like a follow up to their song "until the end of the world" from achtung baby,which seems to me to have some kind of connection or relative point,as if there songs follow one after the other,regardless of them being separated by album titles,they are so good they could follow one after the other in a time span of their very colourful,and more importantly,very entertaining career,which typifies what u2 mean to their fans,whether their songs mean one thing to one person ,it could mean something different to others,either way it always seems to hit the right spots.track 2 is the brilliant "popmart" mix from the opening of their popmart tour,blending pure and raw dance with the unique vocal talents of bono at his charismatic best,definitley one of my personal faves of all time.track 3 features the beatles cover "happiness is a warm gun" which,surprisingly,i really liked since the original wasnt really a track which stood out for me,but this one i thought did sound good...and finally the uniquely fabulous "numb",i cant think of another song which sounds or has the ability to capture what the edge has and others try to copy or imitate in any way,which leads me to conclude that any real lover of fine music should always have room in their heart,and cd rack,for our multi-talented friends from the emerald isle.a truly deserved 5 star rating for a 6 star band...go on,you know it makes sense.

A shame the domestic single is not in print... 15 Aug. 2001
By N. P. Stathoulopoulos - Published on
Format: Audio CD
It seems that too many of U2's US maxi-single releases are being taken out of print? Why? Fans have to pour out some extra dollars for 2 versions of most singles. Anyway, this disc is recommended mainly for those who need Pop Muzik on CD, and it is certainly awesome and will immediately evoke memories of seeing PopMart live. The single version of Last Night on Earth is actually preferable to the album version. The single is a bit more electronic, with a smoother opening.
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).

better than part 2 23 Oct. 2000
By S B - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This is not the best U2 single available from the 'Pop' releases.
"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.

one of their best single releases 19 Dec. 2003
By Brandon - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I agree with the last reviewer; this is essential for U2 fans who saw them on their Pop tour because of Pop Musik. The title track is also better than the album version. It's probably the one they intended to release but they were already in a rush to finish the album before the '97 tour. Happiness Is A Warm Gun is one of their best covers ever, with a Hold Me Thrill Me Kiss Me Kill me vibe going on. I would have given this 5 stars, but apparently this one is missing the Numb remix, which isn't that great but I don't know why they wouldn't include it on this disc. The other 3 tracks are far better than Numb and it won't be missed that much.

Last Night on Earth pt.1 17 Jun. 2000
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This single is a good buy for your money, nearly 30 minutes long. The Last Night on Earth track is a lengthy remix. Very different from the traditional U2 style, using electronic beats and rythms to create a dance mix. The entire CD is borderline of being techno. Mild U2 fans won't like it since it strays from earlier material. However, it is a good buy for fans who appreciate the more cutting edge material from Pop and Zooropa. Other tracks include a remix of Numb, accompanied by the Soul Assasins. The third track is a cover of the Beatles song, Happiness is a warm gun.
