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...
