"We always make records in a quite unorthodox way. We start with one idea, it goes through many different forms and we end up with something completely different. Some of the songs we finished recording them the morning we were due to come to New York to master the record. "
- Larry on Pop, 1997

The album Songs of Innocence used to start with 'This Is Where You Can Reach Me,' which was always supposed to be the first song. U2 then changed this to Raised by Wolves, but ultimately decided to "put the songs first", just like on Joshua Tree.
