"You see Adam Clayton, look at that! You see Edge, wow! You see Larry, and you think: truth is not so far from here. But while we wait for it to arrive, we are united on our drug of choice. Is it the holy spirit? Chemicals? Alcohol? Maybe! But tonight it's YOU! YOU!"
- Bono during Even Better on the opening night of the European E&I leg, 2018

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.
