OTHER NOTES
Bono, Gavin Friday and Maurice Seezer wrote three songs for inclusion in the In the Name of the Father soundtrack album.  They recorded two of the tracks themselves, and this second single from the movie, is featured over the opening of the film.  It's an example of a song that is used very effectively in the movie, as a bomb goes off "In the Name of the Father" kicks into high gear.

The 7" and the cassette are backed with a song called "Eden", which is a song from Gavin Friday's 1992 solo album "Adam 'n' Eve".  Bono had nothing to do with the recording of that particular song.
