OTHER NOTES
Jim Sheridan approached his friends, Bono and Gavin Friday about putting together the music for a new film of his dealing with the wrongful imprisionment of the Guilfold Four for an IRA bombing in London.  They wrote three songs for the soundtrack.  The first "In the Name of the Father" is used over the opening of the film.  The second, "Billy Boola" is used in the movie itself and is a fun little romp.  The third song is used as an instrumental in the movie and plays again at the end of the movie with Sinead O'Connor providing vocals.
