Bono co-writes song for Sheridan film

Gavin Friday, Maurice Seezer and Bono have written a song called “Time Enough for Tears” for the upcoming Jim Sheridan film “In America”. Vocalist on the track is Andrea Corr.

Talking to U2log.com Friday explained: “Bono saw the film and was blown away by it. He wanted to work with us and something happened, organically.”

Friday and Seezer have recently completed work on the score for Sheridan’s film. It is their third collaboration with the director, after “In the Name of the Father” and “The Boxer”.

The song has 40’s Cole Porter, Ella Fitzgerald feel to it and is likely to surprise anyone who expects something along the line of the previous collaboration, “In the Name of the Father”.

Friday: “It’s very poetic, very romantic. Very vulnerable and naked. It’s a beautiful song.” The film, “In America”, will premiere next year, April/May at the earliest.

  1. After watching Ms. Corr and Mr. B do their “thing” in When the Stars go…and the fact that Bono turned down the lead role in ES video…It looks like the spanish eyes of Ms Ali are always watching…good for you Bono for being a true family man in a rock and roll world! I’d like to note that although songs like, Under My Skin, When the Stars Go, In a Lifetime ( with Clannad ), New day ( with Wyclef ), and even his roles in USA for Africa, and Little Stevies Sun City…Bono is much like U2 without him, Bono without U2 is still good, just not as great as the four lads together!

  3. [good for you Bono for being a true family man in a rock and roll world] – For several reasons (that I won’t go into), I wouldn’t believe that, not if I was paid millions of Euro.

  5. Thanks Adam, agreed. I think it would be fair to say he’s kissed a million fans and made many young ladies faint, but I think…”That Girl, that Girl, she’s mine, and I known her since, since she was a little girl with Spanish eyes…”
    Unlees Tom saw Bono do some snakin’ it would be wise to stop the shakin’!

  7. Hmm, I did post a reply here a couple of days ago, but I guess it didn’t get posted.

    I’m not saying what I said without baseless information, I have good reason to say what I said.

    The reason it’s never gotten out (the reason a book writing friend of mine never published what he learned) is because of the fear of legal hassles. But my friend had pretty good evidence – the who and the where.

    And I’ve heard pretty good rumours from quite a few other sources as well, which leads me to believe there is far too much smoke for there to be no fire.

    Just because it’s Bono means nothing – sorry, but true.
