Miss Sarajevo - Passengers

U2 and Brian Eno used the pseudonym Passengers to record an album called 'Original Soundtracks 1', a collection of songs for movies that do not exist. The track 'Miss Sarajevo' protests the war in Bosnia, criticizing the international community for its inability to stop the war or help those affected by it. It was the only single released from the album.

Lead vocals are performed by Bono, with a guest appearance by Italian tenor Luciano Pavarotti. The 7" single was released with a large poster, folded to LP size. The B-side is a live performance of the U2 track 'One' during a War Child concert in Modena, Italy on September 12, 1995.

My collection: 7" single no. 2570
Found: Record fair, Rotterdam, December 16, 1995
Cost: 10 guilders
