In 1998, Zucchero wrote a song called "Blu" for this album.  He wrote the song in his native Italian.  Wanting to reach a wider market, he approached Bono to write lyrics for an English version of the song.  The resulting song in english is titled "Blue" and credits Bono as the writer.  Bono does not appear on the actual recording.

If you are looking for this one, be careful, as some international versions feature the song "Blu" instead of "Blue" and Bono has no involvement in the Italian version of the song.  You will most likely be looking for the USA, Canada or UK pressings of the CD to find the English version.

  • The full length version of "Blue" appears on the English version of the Blue Sugar album by Zucchero.
  • "Blue" was also released as a single and promotional single.
  • Bono co-wrote "Miserere" with Zucherro, and it appears on Zucherro's album Miserere.
  • Miserere was also released as a single.
  • A live version of Miserere featuring Zucherro and Pavarotti appears on Pavarotti's Pavarotti and Friends 1 album.
