"Zooropa is the sound of U2 becoming comfortable with a new recording recording environment. After the attrition of Achtung Baby, it was lear that this technology stuff was OK, it's not the Devil, it's not the enemy, we can work with it. Edge was exploring dance and hip-hop culture, club mixes, he was experimenting and U2 were his guinea pigs."

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.
