"I write all the time. It's so simple this songwriting, it can't be taken away from you. It's just you, a piece of paper, a pen or just sitting with a guitar or piano. It seems like sanity amidst all the madness of being with a big group. I'm more rather than less interested in that than anything else."
- Bono, 1989

The song 'Scarlet' was inspired by a thought in Bono's mind: "does God need salesmen?". The band was also in a minimalist mood that day.
