"My ideas about love are probably very unromantic. I see love as a decision not made in the heat of the moment. I see it as an enduring thing that doesn't depend on feelings to verify it."
- Bono while discussing Every Breaking Wave
In the live performance of 'The Electric Co.' from 1983's Under A Blood Red Sky, Bono sang a snippet of Stephen Sondheim's 'Send In The Clowns'. U2 had failed to get permission for this 27-second snippet and later agreed to pay a $50,000 penalty as well as removing the snippet from later pressings.
