"Los Angeles was a litany of crises, one problem after another with the record, the movie, with life. I started to feel really homesick. There was nowhere to go, the place shuts at nine o'clock. I borrowed some motorcycles and rode around L.A. on my downtime. I just couldn't cope, I was desperate to leave LA."

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.
