"Working with B.B. King is a mixed blessing because he's the only guy I know that when he moves back from the microphone his voice gets louder. I feel like a little girl when I'm singing with him."
- Bono, 1989
Although instrumental, the song '4th Of July' was recorded on the 4th of July, it is about how they felt that day. The Edge was playing the guitar, completely unaware that Brian Eno (one of the producers) was recording it.
