. Written by Bono about his father Bob, in the last months of his life, the track went on to win both 'Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group and Song Of The Year at the 2006 Grammy Awards
During a two day video shoot in Dublin, directed by Phil Joanou, Bono told U2.com about how the song came from his dad: 'It's a portrait of him. He was a great singer, a tenor, a working class Dublin guy who listened to the opera and conducted the stereo with my mother's knitting needles. He just loved opera, so in the song, I hit one of those big tenor notes that he would have loved so much. I think he would have loved it, I hope so.'
