"I tend to personally go for impressionistic styles of music. I find them a little bit more stimulating, more interesting over a longer period of time. Really to try to pin them down is a mistake. Like 'Indian Symmer Sky' - that song is, I think, autobiographical, in a sense, of the band, but I wouldn't even attempt to try to analyze it or come up with a sort of one-liner that tells you exactly what that song is."
- The Edge, 1985

'40' from the War album almost was never recorded. The band (minus Adam Clayton who had left the studio) had gone over their booked studio time, but convinced the studio manager to let them record '40'. The Edge plays both electric and bass guitar on the song. It was a last addition to the album, but has closed many shows over the decades.
