ALL OVER THE WORLD

Certainly it's great news that the All Over The World CD compilation had a successful opening 2 weeks on the UK charts.  The Japanese and US version are coming in July, but the Korean version is out already with a different track selection.

Horace Wimp, Wild West Hero and Showdown are cut from the Korean version and replaced with Midnight Blue, Getting To The Point and Ticket To The Moon.  FTM says Twilight will be on the Japanese version... but no idea (yet) what, if any, changes there will be to the US version.

What track substitutions would you make?

bflat33 - I wish that CAN'T GET IT OUT OF MY HEAD had been included on AOTW.  Although it wasn't a hit in the UK, it was successful in the US, and IMO it is a vastly superior song than, for instance, ROCK AND ROLL IS KING, which apart from anything else was little more than a second-rate version of HOLD ON TIGHT.

CAN'T GET IT OUT OF MY HEAD is an absolutely classic song which has to be one of Jeff's finest ever.  Putting it on this latest compilation would have given it some much-deserved exposure, and would have been a great opportunity to reach a whole new generation of ELO fans.
