"It's my favorite U2 song, I have to say. Normally, when I hear a U2 song on the radio I cringe. Either I sound like a girl, or the lyric isn't finished. But there are some songs that I really, really do enjoy. Miss Sarajevo is one of them."
- Bono on the release of U23D, 2008
One recording of the song One Step Closer ran for more than 15 minutes, with Bono adding many verses that were subsequently dropped.
