"Sunday Bloody Sunday" - U2

Promotional Release

Track Listing:

Background Information

In most regions “Two Hearts Beat as One” was released as the second single off of “War” but in some areas “Sunday Bloody Sunday” was released instead, making use of the same B-sides that were used on the “Two Hearts Beat as One” single. There were a couple of promotional singles released worldwide for promotion of “Sunday Bloody Sunday”. In Argentina a promotional single was issued on 7-inch vinyl with “Sunday Bloody Sunday” or “Domingo Sangriento Domingo” as it was listed here on the A-side. On the flip side was “Two Hearts Beat as One (Import Mix)”. It was released with generic labels in a generic sleeve by Ariola.

In Japan, “Two Hearts Beat as One” had been released as a single, so “Sunday Bloody Sunday” had been issued with a different sleeve, and a different B-side, the album version of “Red Light”. The 7-inch promotional single made use of that same sleeve, but contained different labels on the vinyl itself than the commercial single had.

In Brazil a 12-inch mix with a variety of artists was issued with “Sunday Bloody Sunday” as the lead track, and included Christopher Cross, Madonna, and Peter Schilling. This was labeled Promo No. 64, and more details can be found under the listing for these Brazilian 12-inch promotional singles.
