Musical Friday: Ordinary Love

Dear friends,

I must make a confession in front of you all :) I grew up with this band, loving this band, this adorable Irish rock band from Dublin. I always wanted to see them live and hopefully I shall, one day! I love Bono's voice and I love hearing The Edge at the guitar and also his backing vocals... I even like Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen although I did not get caught up with them that much. I had moments in which I would listen only to U2 until I would get bored and then the next day I would come back ;))) Hey! They are Irish, how could I not love them!? I believe I first listened to the album Joshua Tree and that, my friends, was already their 5th album!!! I fell in love with "Where the streets have no name" and "I still haven't found what I'm looking for"... not to mention "With or Without You"... They already have 12 albums and they are on their way on pulling another one! Way to go, you Irish talented lads!!!

It's been four years since U2 released new material, so now that the veteran rockers are back with their sprawling single "Ordinary Love", fans are more excited than ever. The song may be just a feature off the soundtrack to the film Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom, but new music from the Irish foursome means that an upcoming album could be on the way.
With the gorgeous chorus "We can't fall any further / If we can't feel ordinary love / We cannot reach any higher / If we can't deal with ordinary love" sung by frontman Bono, the new track has been backed with an equally stunning lyric video, featuring the words scrawled all over different moving scenes, almost stop-motion-like.

Ordinary Love - U2 

The sea wants to kiss the golden shore
The sunlight warms your skin
All the beauty that's been lost before
Wants to find us again
I can't fight you anymore
It's you I'm fighting for
The sea throws rocks together
But time leaves us polished stones
We can't fall any further
If we can't feel ordinary love
We cannot reach any higher
If we can't deal with ordinary love
Birds fly high in the summer sky
And rest on the breeze
The same wind will take care of you and
We'll build our house in the trees
Your heart is on my sleeve
Did you put it there with a magic marker
For years I would believe
That the world couldn't wash it away
'Cause we can't fall any further
If we can't feel ordinary love
We cannot reach any higher
If we can't deal with ordinary love
Are we tough enough
For ordinary love
We can't fall any further
If we can't feel ordinary love
We cannot reach any higher
If we can't deal with ordinary love
We can't fall any further
If we can't feel ordinary love
We cannot reach any higher
If we can't deal with ordinary love

Hope you enjoyed this song as much as I did and if you never listened U2 than I would suggest it! Get your groove on and listen to these lads ASAP!

Yours truly,
An old U2 Fan - The LadyBug :)
