"Best... Song... Ever... It doesn't have a hook OR a chorus!"
U2 fan since age 11. Saw my first show at age 14 (3/2/85 - Unforgettable Fire Tour). Have attended 36 shows so far (as well as seeing Bono and Edge at President Clinton's 65th birthday benefit concert) including two in Australia, two in Las Vegas and one in Honolulu. Most recent show (5/19/15) was the best on the Innocence Tour so far, and MANY others have been spectacular. Looking forward to more shows this tour. The dream is to see them in South America.

"It's exciting to release any record after your first record. It's always great to have completed it and know that people are still interested in it to listen to it when it comes out."

Part of the inspiration for the lyrics of One reportedly grew out of a note Bono had sent to the Dalai Lama declining an invitation to a festival called Oneness. The note included, in part, the line, “one – but not the same,” a line which would later appear in the song’s lyrics. That idea of “oneness,” Bono would later say, was a key concept for the song.
