OTHER NOTES
Bono and The Edge wrote this song with Roy Orbison in mind.  Orbison agreed to record the song and invited Bono to contribute guitar to the recording, and also to work as producer on the track.  The track was recorded for what would become Orbison's last studio album recorded before he passed away.  The album was released after Orbison's death in 1989.  The song written by Bono and the Edge was used to give the album its title.

U2 has performed this song live on several occasions throughout their career, starting with the Love Town tour, and continuing right through to 2001's Elevation tour.
