"It was originally called 'The Real Thing,' which is a dumb title for a song. 'Even Better Than The Real Thing' is much more reflective of the times we were living in, when people were no longer looking for the truth, we are all looking for instant gratification. It's not substantial as a lyric but it suggests a certain sexual tension and desire to have some fun playing in the shallows. Sliding down the surface of things. There is a moment when you want to read a magazine, not a novel." - Bono, U2 By U2 2006
