To be honest, this could’ve been a “Songs that ruined the band,” if it weren’t for the Grammy-winning All That You Can’t Leave Behind a few years later.
Why do bands write songs specifically for soundtracks? It’s a lucrative business, for sure, but it also comes at great risk. There have been many U2 songs on soundtracks, notably “Elevation” on that forgettable Tomb Raider 2.
