"I used more film for this album than for any other project I've worked on. We had nudity, cross-dressing, masks, exotic walls and borins beaches, serious fun and serious men, cars and animals in front of the camera."
- Anton Corbijn on Achtung Baby
The song 'I Fall Down' is about a girl Bono knew named Julie. She's the daughter of a wealthy lawyer in New York, who ended up moving to ireland and becoming involved in the same bible group U2 were in. She later became involved with Pod, a roadie for U2 at the time, the 'John' in the song.
