Description

“Even Better Than the Real Thing” is the second song on U2’s 1991 album Achtung Baby. It was released as the album’s fourth single on 7 June 1992.

This 12 inch single has bee hand signed on the front cover by Bono and comes complete with your market leading unconditional 90 day money back guarantee and life time COA.

“Even Better Than the Real Thing” originated from a chorus guitar riff that The Edge composed in Los Angeles during the Rattle and Hum sessions. A demo of the song, called “The Real Thing”, was recorded at STS Studios during the same session in which “Desire” was recorded.

The band remarked that the song’s guitar riff reminded them of The Rolling Stones, but that it sounded “deeply traditional”. Consequently, it was shelved until the Achtung Baby recording sessions, when the band took the multitrack recording of the demo to Hansa Studios in Berlin in late 1990. The band made little progress on the demo there, as the Berlin sessions were fraught with conflict and difficulty in completing songs.
