Ordinary Love

Hey, you! How are you doing? 🙂

Today I am bringing “Ordinary Love”, song by Irish rock band U2. It was written to honour Nelson Mandela and is included in the biography film Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom. It was released on 29 November 2013, less than a week before Mandela died.

U2 had been friends with Nelson Mandela for several years, having played concerts in South Africa.

When movie producer Harvey Weinstein invited the band to write a song for the soundtrack of the Mandela biography film, they responded with a quick “yes”. After seeing early cuts of the film, the group were inspired to write a song reflecting upon him. Read more about the song here.

Now is the time to listen, sing and have some fun!

Now, tell me: after listening to the song and reflecting on it, what is the main message it brings to you?

Have a great day! 😀
