"It's a hard call to turn a supermarket and a casino into a cathedral but that's what we're trying to do. To find the spirit in the machine. We live in a neon time and we're trying to make it magical. And it's not trying to be smart-arse or ironic."
- Bono, 1997

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.
