This is the one song that I wish I knew how good it was in March of 1992. I was 22 years old and was wondering why they closed with it. Seeing the satellite imagery. Not knowing how hauntingly beautiful the song was at the time. Edge killed it. The lyrics. The slow pace throughout. My 22 year old self couldn’t see or appreciate it’s beauty and excellence.
Now 49, This is the one song i’d love to hear live again. I now realize what a deep way to close a show. Perfection
I feel like trying to get my hands on the stay live format single, I didn’t realise until very recently that love is Blindness is taken from the Yankee stadium show on that single. I always thought it would be Sydney or Washington for some reason.
"We played around a lot with techno beats and drum&bass beats and trip-hop ideas. But we hit a certain brick wall and asked ourselves, 'Why are doing this?' We're a band."

In late 2004, "Mercy", an unreleased track taken from the How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb sessions, surfaced on the Internet through a fan who had been given a copy of the album containing the extra track. The track is of less than standard audio quality, but managed to become a favorite on fan websites.
