"The truth is when the singer is saying something that comes from right down within him, and it affects you right down within you.. and that's when you start talking about great music, as distinct from nice music."
- Bono, 1982

'40' from the War album almost was never recorded. The band (minus Adam Clayton who had left the studio) had gone over their booked studio time, but convinced the studio manager to let them record '40'. The Edge plays both electric and bass guitar on the song. It was a last addition to the album, but has closed many shows over the decades.
