"Sex and music are still for me places where you glimpse God. Sex and art, I suppose, but unless you're going to get slain in the spirit by a Warhol or Rothko, I think for most of us art is music."
- Bono, At The End Of The World
The song 4th of July is named after the date of birth of Edge's first daughter. It was recorded by accident, Adam was playing some bass lines and Edge just jumped in, both unaware that Brian Eno was recording.
