"At first sight it's beautiful, innocent, even a naive city. There's shop window prostitution and it's the European centre for the drugs market. It's like one of the songs on Boy called An Cat Dubh which describes the cat as a symbol of temptation. At first beautiful, the shape, you know, seductive. In the daylight it destroys a birdnest. Amsterdam is like that."
- Bono on Amsterdam, 1982
