OTHER NOTES
Released in September of 1997, Popheart came out a month before the Please single. It carried the "Please" title, however, also carried the subtitle "Popheart EP" making it look like it was something more than a single. As time has gone on this has become rarer, and it is obvious it is not being kept in print by the record label in all regions, so indeed it could be considered the second part of the Please single as many have suggested it should be. 

Released as U2 was heading back to North America for the third leg of the worldwide Popmart tour, this EP presented four songs recorded live during earlier legs of the tour.  Three tracks were recorded in Rotterdam in July of 1997, and a single track, "With or Without You" was recorded live in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada in June of 1997.

In the US, the Popheart tracks were released as part of the US single for Please. Only in other areas was it released with the Popheart cover.
