Two Hearts Beat As One (4:02)

Cover of Sunday Bloody Sunday

From Sunday Bloody Sunday and 128 other releases

“Two Hearts Beat as One” is the seventh track on U2’s 1983 album, War. It was released as the album’s second single but only in the US, UK and Australia, as opposed to “Sunday Bloody Sunday”, which was released only in the mainland of Europe. Both singles were released in Japan.

“Two Hearts Beat as One” features a propulsive bassline by Adam Clayton and achieved moderate success as a single in the UK and with album oriented rock airplay in the U.S.

The music video for the song was filmed on Montmartre in Paris in March 1983 and portrays the band performing the song, intercut with scenes of an acrobat and other scenes featuring Peter Rowan. Unlike the other videos from the album, it has never been included on any of the band’s video compilations.


The song made its live debut on 26 February 1983 at the first show of the War Tour and was played at almost all concerts on that tour. On the second leg of the War Tour, “Two Hearts Beat as One” began to follow “Surrender” and the two songs segued together. This transition survived to the Unforgettable Fire Tour. However, on the third leg of the Unforgettable Fire Tour, “Two Hearts Beat as One” was separated from “Surrender” and the regularity of its performances markedly declined. It became an infrequently performed song for the rest of the tour, with its last tour appearance on 29 April 1985 in Atlanta. It has made only one subsequent appearance: it was performed in the encore at a Lovetown Tour concert on 27 December 1989, in the Point Depot, Dublin.
