Zoo Vinyl Competition - 25 Copies Of Ordinary Love To Giveaway!

#U2OrdinaryLove competition vinyl giveaway #mandela subscribers free fans

Ordinary Love, written for the movie Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom, is now released in a 10-inch vinyl pressing to mark Record Store Day.But its a limited edition, which means not everyone will get one… so we’re delighted to announce we’ve bagged 25 copies to give away free to fans!  
Remember the #U2FTGU Competition - where we asked you to show us what you had built 'From The Ground Up'? Well, this time all we are asking you is to show us some of your 'Ordinary Love’ - and take inspiration from that amazing lyric video by Oliver Jeffers and Mac Premo. 
 
Take a line or section of the lyrics from Ordinary Love and personalise it. 
Make a hand-drawn sketch, write on on a blackboard, scrawl it on the beach, in the snow - make it out of pastry, plasticine or ketchup - tattoo it on a friends arm (with their permission :), write it in the sky when you’re next up in a plane… which line(s) you write or how you write it and present it is down to your own imagination…   
 
How to enter?  
Simple! Just take your photo / video / written piece of your creation, and add it to this Zoo Forum Topic thread. If you also show it in your favourite social network site (like Facebook, Twitter or Instagram) remember to tag it with #U2OrdinaryLove so we can find it…   
You can tweet your love to @u2 & @u2community ( & we will R/T some of the best, but again, please remember to add the hashtag #U2OrdinaryLove or we might miss it). Just make sure whatever you create, to make it publicly viewable, and that it sticks by the forum House Rules, and the winners will be chosen sometime in December.  
 
So, time to get creative!    
 
20 of the vinyl Ordinary Love copies will go to the best entries from U2.com full subscribers, and 5 copies are up for grabs to anyone who is a free member of U2.com (if you are not already a member, you can sign up for free here)   
 
Ordinary Love by U2 Lyrics : 
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
I will build our house in the trees 
 
Your heart is on my sleeve
Did you put 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..     
 
 
Are you tough enough?…

I got my copy :)

Great song, I hope we can see a new album soon

ready...set....go

Today, I was in the Car with my fellow-football players and this happend: It was empty on the road, A1, the radio was on, the sun shone brightly, the dawn was Ordinary and the new born U2 song was annoucement: We? turned the volume Up to a higher level and it sounds great, only the lyrics are not in my mind. The I-pad was at Home, this was a moment to surrender: in my mind I knew this coud be a great video clip, but no I-Pad: no movie! Next time a second change, I hope so...... Love and Ordinary Love, Detlev Lassche. Miss you sugar. ...
Beauty of a song with poetic lyrics! Thanks!!
