Sweetest Thing?

While working on The Joshua Tree, U2's Bono Vox once missed Ali Hewson's birthday. Was Ali Hewson a relative stranger? Not exactly. She is better known, perhaps, as... Bono's wife!

[Bono, endeavoring to make amends, gave Ali a remarkable gift: A song, aptly-entitled "The Sweetest Thing". Hewson in turn gave the proceeds from the song's sale to a charity for Chernobyl victims.]

["The Sweetest Thing" was filmed on the first sunny day in Dublin in several months. "I'm sure," a producer remarked, "that Bono had a hand in that."]
