"I think Drowning Man is my favourite U2 song. It's got so much emotion and poise in it. And it's quite odd sounding as well. I mean the vocals are terrific and I think the backing track is just a lovely swell, and feel of water almost, to it. It's like a waterfall."
- Adam, 1984

Twenty songs were recorded for Zooropa during the sessions, but ultimately 10 were chosen for the final track listing. One piece that was left off the record was "In Cold Blood", which featured somber lyrics written by Bono in response to the Bosnian War and was previewed prior to the album's release.
