"If I remember performing Kite live, it brings bittersweet memories, it's a song I wish my father has said to me but I say to my kids. I was holding to the song very tightly as my father was getting more ill, it was hard to sing at times. In other times it seems to hold me up."
- Bono, 2020

During the recording sessions of Achtung Baby, the band were working on a primitive version of Mysterious Ways called 'Sick Puppy'. During these versions, The Edge improvised a chord progression that the rest of the band worked with. From that chord progression the song 'One' was born, ultimately changing the outlook of the sessions and more importantly, keeping the band together.
