"The sound of 'Zooropa' as a whole is so out there and experimental, and every song is uniquely awesome ('Lemon's' imagery, 'Daddy's Gonna Pay's' intro, 'Zooropa's' powerful transition in the middle)."
"'Zooropa' is incredible. The transition into 'and I have no compass' is powerful every time I hear it, and the last line 'She's gonna dream up the world she wants to live in, she gonna dream out loud' has always stood out to me."
"When we started it was hard to get the Edge to play aggressively. He is a gentleman and he plays guitar like a gentleman."
- Bono on The Edge, February 1982
