"I am not sure the best version of 'If You Wear That Velvet Dress' ended up on the album. It wanted to be a lounge classic. It ended up in an airport lounge as background noise."
- Bono on If You Wear That Velvet Dress

'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.
