Daddy's Gonna Pay For Your Crashed Car by U2
Album: ZooropaReleased: 1993
The flourish at the beginning is taken from the album Lenin's Favorite Songs, released by the Soviet Government-owned record label. Vladimir Lenin led the Bolshevik revolution in 1917 and became leader of Russia. The capital city of Petrograd was renamed Leningrad in his honor, but years later, when communism ended in Russia, the city was renamed St. Petersburg.
This is about a woman spoiled by a man who gives her anything.
The song contains a sample from "The City Sleeps" by MC 900ft Jesus.
That lettering on the Zooropa album cover is made up of words from songs that were discarded.
