Elizabeth Fraser (from Cocteau Twins) wrote the lyrics and sang it, during the process, she learnt the death by drowning of her friend Jeff Buckley. "That was so weird... I'd got letters out and I was thinking about him. That song's kind of about him, that's how it feels to me anyway." - Lotuscandy

Passengers (U2 + Brian Eno) featuring Luciano Pavarotti.
This song evokes the everyday life in a city at war. The Siege of Sarajevo (Bosnia) was the longest siege of a capital city in the history of modern warfare, lasting from April 1992 till February 1996, and was not much covered by the media.
Bono produced a film based on Sarajevo's underground resistance movement, in order to raise international awareness about what was happening there. The film is a documentary by Bill Carter about a beauty pageant held in the midst of war-torn Sarajevo. The music video contains excerpts from the documentary with striking imagery, such as a shot of beauty pageant contestants holding up a banner with the words "DON'T LET THEM KILL US" as seen on the single's artwork. - Lotuscandy
With backing vocals from Michael Stipe (of R.E.M.), written by Kristin Hersh and later covered by Greg Laswell.
This song is a bit special for me, as we were in our late teens, two of my closest friends died unexpectedly in the space of 2 years. This is one of a few songs which are for ever related to them in my mind, I almost feel like I can "connect" to them listening to those songs. - Lotuscandy
