"'Pride' is the best song we've ever written. We've done very few songs, normally we just make music. 'I Will Follow' was a song, but then the next one wasn't until 'Sunday Bloody Sunday'. It's very different from the rest of the album though - there's nothing on there as straight as this."
- Bono, November 1984
