OTHER NOTES
Commercially, Numb was only released as a video single. There were, however, several promotional releases of the single for radio etc., to promote this first single off of the Zooropa album. These included a remix by Paul Oakenfold of the Numb track which appeared only on this promotional single and is very difficult to track down.

One of the promotional recordings was a 12" Vinyl which was marked only "Numb (Produced by Fee Dognoodle)" with no mention of U2 on the label. This was sent out to radio stations in advance of the release of other promos to see how much play the single would get if it wasn't recognized as a U2 track. This version of the track appears to be the 4:18 album mix of the track. No deviation from the album track can be found upon listening to it.
