Most newlyweds wouldn't want their spouse working during their honeymoon, but when your job is writing songs, and you're inspired to write one about two people coming together, you get some slack. Bono started writing this when he was on his honeymoon in the Caribbean. He married Alison Stewart, who he had been dating since 1975, on August 21, 1982 in Ireland.
An early U2 song, this was the second single from their third album, War. Bruce Springsteen had already done the "Two Hearts" thing, but U2 did get to theirs before Phil Collins.
Bono said that in writing this song, he was hoping to create something that Aretha Franklin or Barbra Streisand would cover.
U2 made a video for this song with Meiert Avis, who directed most of their early videos. This was before the band got into concept videos - they were typically seen performing outdoors. In this one, they're in Paris. Mixed in with their performance are shots of street performers and of 9-year-old Peter Rowen, who appears on the album covers for Boy and War.
Lily Allen wrote "Something's Not Right" for the soundtrack of the Peter Pan prequel, Pan. The song was inspired by the heartache that Allen experienced after suffering a miscarriage when she was six months pregnant with her first child by husband Sam Cooper in 2010.
"Islands in the Stream" was originally written by The Bee Gees as an R&B song. It was originally written by the brothers for Marvin Gaye, however it was recorded instead as a duet by Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton with the Gibb Brothers also contributing vocals.
