In 2005 everybody understood why they played it in a lower key. But in 1992 with Radio being a brand new track he wouldn't have gotten away with it.

Of course they could've opted to not playing it like a couple of other songs...but therefor the song was and still is probably too good.

I wish they would've recorded a version back in the day with Jon not having a cold

But live it would've been the same story as with Starting All Over Again, where Jon said: "If we sang this twice on tour, we could've packed up and gone home again."

Although I'm very well aware of Jon stating on the DVD that 'Starting' would have killed him in a live setting vocally, I don't think that's why the song was left off...

I think the album had it's quotas for up-tempos and this song just wasn't good enough...

Even as a bside, it didn't get any of the buzz Save A Prayer got...

To me, it always felt like "Starting.." was always more in style with their earlier stuff, and they were trying to move to a more "modern" (at the time) sounds and not so obvioulsy 80s. I always thought that was why it never made it...

I think I must be the only one who prefers Jon's vocals on the box set version of Starting All Over Again.

The only part that's a bit hard to listen too is the 'get back home to youuuuu' where he sounds really rough but I do prefer the rest for some reason.
