Bono joined the Corrs for a live performance on January 25, 2002. The performance was held at Ardmore Studios, in Co. Wicklow, and the performance was filmed for a VH1 special, and also recorded for an album release, “Live in Dublin”. During the performance, Bono joined the Corrs on two songs, “Summer Wine” and “When the Stars Go Blue”. Both songs were released on the “LIve in Dublin” album, and “When the Stars Go Blue” was also released as a promotional single to radio.
When this compilation titled “Dreams: The Ultimate Corrs Collection” was released, there was no evidence that the track was a remix. The track list on the back of the CD just lists the song and that Bono is featured on the song. And indeed, it is the same performance recorded on January 25, 2002. The crowd noise has been edited, and the instrumentals have been remixed slightly, but it is still recognizable as the same recording. It has been suggested that the remix of this track was done so a live track would fit in better on such a best of compilation.
Since the original “Live in Dublin” release was only released in the US and in low quantities, this CD has become the easier place to find this track, albeit a remix of the original.
The Corrs have a long history working with Bono and U2. They stepped in at the last moment for an ill PJ Harvey at the opening shows of 2001’s Elevation Tour. Sharon and Andrea contributed to U2’s soundtrack version of “The Hands that Built America” found on the “Gangs of New York” soundtrack. Bono co-wrote “Time Enough for Tears” which was sung by Andrea on the “In America” soundtrack and on the Corrs album, “Borrowed Heaven”. Bono also helped produce Andrea’s solo album “Ten Feet High”.
