Legendary song of the day!

This song actually kept the legendary Irish band from splitting up over arguments about the future of their sound and direction. Inspired by a riff that guitarist 'The Edge' created, the lyrics were added as a description of their disunity and later reconciliation while recording their album - Aching Baby. It's a powerful anthem about the need to come together and overcome our differences.
When released as a single 'One' became a benefit song helping to raise funds for AIDS research and as a little bonus for those who love a live performance we couldn't resist sharing this recording from 2005...

Having been quite a shy kid growing up, there’s nothing more moving to me now than seeing someone start to realise their real potential and believe in themselves a bit more… It’s one of the best feelings ever! For me, Legends help us all to see more of what’s possible and start to aim that little bit higher in life. It’s so important to have fun and enjoy ourselves along the way too… Have fun, never stop learning and share as much as you can with others
