"I actually want to make quite a personal record. I tried to avoid any persona on the record.

After work I might have developed a few personas."
- Bono on Pop, 1997

Twenty songs were recorded for Zooropa during the sessions, but ultimately 10 were chosen for the final track listing. One piece that was left off the record was "In Cold Blood", which featured somber lyrics written by Bono in response to the Bosnian War and was previewed prior to the album's release.
