A crowd of us who are going met last night and Jamie told us the story of the song 'One'. U2 had been going for 10 years and went to Berlin to record a new album. Bono thought they should try something new-the 80's were over and he wanted something fresh. The rest of the band were not at all convinced. Despite their best efforts nothing seemed to be working. After two weeks of trying, all but Bono started to wonder if this was the end. They suggested they just call it a day for the band. But Bono would not give up so he stayed in the studio and in desperation-the only 'one' of the band left fighting for its existence- wrote the song 'One'. After toiling on it all night he played the song to the band in the morning and well, I suppose, the rest is history.
