AllMusic Review by

This CD single is from U2's 1993 album Zooropa. This was the first and only single released from the album in most parts of the world. It was also the first U2 single since 1989's When Love Comes to Town to feature live tracks (common in the 1980s). The non-American releases were two CD sets entitled Live Format and Swing Format, depending on the non-LP material. The Swing Format single pairs the album version of "Stay (Faraway So Close)" and the Frank Sinatra/Bono duet "I've Got You Under My Skin" with remixes of "Lemon." The remixes are the "Bad Yard Club Edit" by David Morales and the "Perfecto Mix" by Paul Oakenfold. These are -- by far -- the two best versions of "Lemon" available. "Stay" reached number 61 on the U.S. charts but was number four in the U.K.
