OTHER NOTES
A soundtrack released on cassette and vinyl in 1982, "They Call it an Accident" featured two tracks by U2.  One is a remix of the track "October" which is very similar to the original except for an added instrumental at the end.  The other is an instrumental version of October, which is really just a shortened version of the album version.  The additional keyboards included in the remix were not by a member of U2, but were done by Wally Badarou who also contributed to the soundtrack.
