"The ability of songs to split up a bad marriage or keep a good one together, to stop you getting thrown out of a pub, to take you on adventures, to tell you what to do, how to dress, how to behave, it's all there. That's where the intelligent life is."
- Bono, 2015

In the live performance of 'The Electric Co.' from 1983's Under A Blood Red Sky, Bono sang a snippet of Stephen Sondheim's 'Send In The Clowns'. U2 had failed to get permission for this 27-second snippet and later agreed to pay a $50,000 penalty as well as removing the snippet from later pressings.
