Because no-one sells anymore. Coldplay and Arctic Monkeys both went from 4x platinum to solitary gold between albums, Manic Street Preachers haven't been able to get arrested for years, U2 don't do big numbers no matter how hard Apple tries. I could go on.
What racist things did they do? You...
Oh well done Pete, you cracked the code. It's a 36 year old song with a lyrical source that's been widely referred to many times but you and you alone are the sage to teach us the error of our ways.
Don't forget to collect your £200 when you pass go.
I said this earlier in the thread but that was quite some time ago, I don't think it's relevant these days. Reissued vinyl is just a collector's item like a poster or a 'Funko doll' and the music can just be streamed so you can listen if you're curious and it requires no outlay.
I found the deluxe version of World Peace quite dispiriting. There are three songs I can think of that could be swapped with any of the bonus tracks and it would be a much better album.

It's amazing how people still go on about this 'reissue repackage' gubbins when it's completely irrelevant in the modern world. Physical releases are just collectors items, it could be Ringleader of the Tormentors or a commemorative coin with his face on it. It makes no odds.
As for the music...
I've never really forgiven Tony Visconti for inviting Morricone to orchestrate a song, then throwing most of it away. The strings on Dear God Please Help Me might as well have been synthesized for all the use they made out of them.
