"I know what will happen. First three months will be completely mad, there'll be good and bad gigs, the music will have to be fixed. All the usual things. The first three months will be spent just getting it all right."
- Larry Mullen prior to the start of the Popmart Tour
Twenty songs were recorded for Zooropa during the sessions, but ultimately 10 were chosen for the final track listing. One piece that was left off the record was "In Cold Blood", which featured somber lyrics written by Bono in response to the Bosnian War and was previewed prior to the album's release.
