u2, window in the skies, cd single, version 2
1. window in the skies
zoo station, recorded at the last south american show (right before u2's tour postponement last spring), features a touching shout out to edge's little people (near the end) from, um, train conductor bono. kite has a didgeridoo. a few endearing miscues. a slightly random shout out to cate blanchett. oh, and a guitar solo/outro part that takes the song to another atmosphere.
