OTHER NOTES
When Sinead O'Connor left Chrysalis Records as an artist, the label was quick to put together a "Best Of" collection featuring her work to date.  The album was released in 1997 and featured two different track listings in various parts of the world.  The North American release featured "Heroine", "I Want Your Hands on Me" and "Just Like U Said it Would B" where the release in the rest of the world had "Thank You for Hearing Me", "Jackie" and "This IS a Rebel Song" instead.

The two songs in which U2 participate are "Heroine" (only on the North American release) and "You Made Me the Thief of Your Heart".  Both were songs used in soundtracks.  "Heroine" was recorded by the Edge with Sinead and Larry Mullen in 1986 for the Captive Soundtrack.  A single was released.  "You Made Me the Thief of Your Heart" was co-written by Bono, Gavin Friday and Maurice Seezer, and it was recorded by Sinead for use in the In the Name of the Father Soundtrack.  A single was also released.

A third track with some U2 connections features on the UK release of this album.  That song, "This IS a Rebel Song" was playfully named because of the way that Bono used to introduce "Sunday Bloody Sunday" live in concert.  Bono's typical introduction was "This IS NOT a Rebel Song - this IS Sunday Bloody Sunday".
