LINER NOTES
In a Lifetime: Words by Ciaran Brennan and Paul Brennan.
OTHER NOTES
Recorded in 1985, Bono duets with Maire Brennan on the song "In a Lifetime" originally released on the album Macalla.  The song is a haunting traditional tune.  In a Lifetime was released as a single, and a promotional video was filmed for release.  The video features a longhaired Bono, with wind blowing out behind him.  This was the look that inspired the look of DC Comic's Sandman character.

The song itself has been a staple of various Clannad compilations over the years.  Each time they package together another, the song appears yet again.  It also tends to pop up on many celtic collections.

Further Information:
This was a 1992 re-release of the album, which features two bonus tracks, "In a Lifetime" and "Theme from Harry's Game".  The 1990 release did not have any contribution by U2, and featured a very different cover with a picture of the group on the front.  A later 2004 remaster of the album removed these two bonus tracks, thus removing the U2 contribution, but uses a similar cover to the one above.
