'ordinary Love' Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

 

:lol: I was just thinking: there will be people who come here & say: No! Just give us The Album or Nothing at all!

 

Those who are my friends who will say that, I Do feel for what you're saying but I can't help laughing at that expectation. But hey, yeah - when the time comes that the album is ready, do show us love by giving us a song off the album B4 the album is released.

 

Nah... I want it all! I'm aiming for the full album to listen to! I'm greedy like that.  :D A song would be nice too yes...  ;)

 

 

:D Well, sometimes if you want to reach the top of a tall tree, you have to aim for the moon, right? ;)

just to note that yes, the trailer is available now on youtube / yahoo movies, but that we got it first, nowhere else had it for at least an hour after it was first shown on U2.com. 

Its also true that as soon as anything is released someone whacks it on youtube, not a lot can be done about that, and in this case it was Yahoo movies who had it up officially, about an hour or so after we got it.

 

At some point, if we do get the full version of the song here, how do you think it should be done? Big announcement, or just release it to members only, no fuss? Email? Twitter? Soundcloud? Would be interesting to know how you all would prefer get the info, if, as and when it drops....

when it drops, would be fun to get special email, tweets, Pms....some with an "extra" inside besides the song...like winning a drawing or a door prize!!

Like all U2 music, some we're gonna like, some we're not, so let's not be down on it just because we may not be so keen on the song based on 4 seconds!! We've waited so long for any new music why not make an announcement, email, twitter, soundcloud - the lot - embrace the fact that our favourite band is still here after so many years making music...and just for Bono, still relevant enough to be part of a film about a great and legendary figurehead of our time. 

 

People can take it or leave it, up to them.

 

(I'm feeling strangely positive today folks ;) if I'd seen this on grumpy Monday it may have been a whole other answer lol!!!)

the sea wants to kiss the golden shore

the sunlight warms your skin
all the beauty thats been lost before
wants to find us again
 
we can't fall any further
and we can't feel ordinary love
we can not reach any higher
we can't feel this ordinary love
 
we can't fall any further
and we can't feel ordinary love
 
woohooohoohooho
woohooohoohooho
ordinary love
ordinary love

 

 

 

Thanks for this Jen. :)

 

Yeah ta ;)

Can you hammer out a hierarchy, maybe with a survey or two to catch people who don't read/write in the forums, to figure out the method of announcement to go with different types of content? So, maybe, for example, if there's a release date announcement or a song sample it just goes on the news page, if it's a full song or maybe the subscriber package it gets an email. That way they could be set as minimums if you don't want to spoil a surprise, and people can take their chances. At your highest level would be the things most people don't want to miss - tour announcement/ticket sales, etc. I'm sure marketing will want anything that potentially involves something to be purchased at the top of the list, while fans may rather have things like pictures of Larry modeling new jeans at the red alert level.

Some of the Pms, emails, tweets, would have a little something, something, inside....

 

Like the Wonka bar with the Golden Ticket....

 

Creating even more excitement!!!

As collector item I think it's much interesting on vinyl

 

I won't fight for the vinyl, I will try the competition hoping it will be an easy one and accessible to everyone on this site...not Fb twitter or anything else ( never heard back for the FTGU competition for subs only :sad: )

I am disappointed. I realize vinyl is good for collectors, but I'm not that kind of collector, I want the music to listen to, not a record that will probably sit somewhere and collect dust. No offense to the people who do collect vinyls. I'd really like this song on a CD, just like I really wanted Wide Awake in Europe to be on a CD. Awesome songs, but I'm not spending that much money on vinyls that I can't even listen to. Hopefully Ordinary Love will be on the new album, but I would think if it's being released like this probably not.

U2 already said they won't be releasing any more CD singles so I am not surprised it is not being released in this format.

 

No one buys them anymore, so a digital iTunes release would be nice if we get it.

 

If not, guess I will have to try hard to get it on vinyl if I can, if I can't there is always YouTube to enjoy it on...

They said they would never play "Sunday Bloody Sunday" after Rattle and Hum too.  :P

 

I'm sure if the record company thought they could make money off a CD single, they would release it.

I'm not too excited about the Black Friday release though.  There are a couple of stores participating in my area, but I doubt they will carry the U2 one.  I would love to have it, but I don't know how I'm going to get it.
