'ordinary Love' Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

 

I think people will either not like this, or will think it's okay, or will Love this. I appreciate those who were hoping for something else, but mark me down in the LOVE column.

 

Got to hear it FIRST in the world! AND, like I said - there should have been NO other band who did the music for that movie trailer except Our U2!!! It was perfect for our U2! :)

 

Uh...I realized...um...we didn't actually get to see it 1st in the world <_< I knew b4 we saw it that if Monica Martino, Danielsentana, & Fernanda turned out to be right, then what we were going to see wasn't here b4 anywhere else...But we were some of the 1st in the world to see it. And at least we were all together when we saw it. Community & all that.

 

Sorry but Mary Ann Cris posted the news up before any the above if you are handing out credit.

Interesting. Now I Really want to hear the whole song. Of course, U2 was an influence on Coldplay - & they've said so - so it's pretty much Coldplay who sounds a little like U2. But now when I hea

Thanks Basher. I actually was wondering when it first got posted. The people I mentioned were just the first I myself saw posting about it, but I know I didn't see the very beginning of it all. I do know that sometimes 2 people can discover something at the same time, too, like Alexander Graham Bell & Elisha Gray invented the phone at the same time, but Alexander got to the patent office 1st.

 

But I see where Daniel said something like this to u: 'I know other people are faster, I just like joking about finding things' - so I'll take that as his admission that Mary Ann Cris found it b4 him. :D

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....

As someone said before, people might have forgotten THE 360 book + Edge's picks

And I don't understand why people were expecting the release of the new album - Are people thinking that albums are released when they feel like it?

It's good to clarify and give the accurate information...

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

Can you make it available for download to subscribers like you did with some of the songs from Edge's Picks? And email us to let us know? If I were a unpaid subscriber, I would want you to release it to subscribers first and then later to unpaid subscribers, but being that I am a paid subscriber I might feel ripped off if all I would have to do was wait a little bit instead of paying for anything. Then again this is just one song and not the actual yearly members' gift, and a perk for all (paid and unpaid) subscribers could help keep people coming to this fansite. 

So to get to the point... Let paid subscribers hear it first, and let them be able to download it. Then like a day or so later make it available to everyone, I'm not sure about for download, but you could stream it to all subscribers at least.

If they did a big 'surprise' announcement on U2.com I guess most of people wouldn´t care about it anymore because they´re disappointed with the last two (Mandela´s trailer and Tiesto remix).

On the other hand, I think it would be very nice to feel excited again waiting for a new song... to be thrilled by the countdown. So it would have to be announced earlier to attract people´s attention, not a 'surprise'.

The website would be perfect because it´s the right place for news. Have you seen how many people were online on the last Thursday? I guess almost 2000. And even so a lot said that they wouldn´t be here at that time. If you say that subscribers will listen to the full and exclusive new song, I think this number could be much bigger.  And we can do the CHAT again... lol

You'll simply never be able to please everyone. And those that are not pleased w/something are always more vocal about it than those who actually had more realistic expectations & really appreciated what they were shown.

 

That being said, I would say make an almost simultaneous Delivery of 2 things: 1) announcement in emails & at U2.com homepage at the same time that 2) the content is Just about to be posted at U2.com. Announce it just b4 or at the same time as delivering it: No Build-Up that way. I personally enjoy the build-up, but not everyone has realistic expectations & they experience a let-down.

 

When u say "or just release it to members only" - do u mean all members - not just subscribers? Although I'm a subscriber, I care about fans who can't afford the sub fee, so if u share something w/members, too, I'm all for that. (Though some subscribers would say 'then what do we pay for?')

 

P.S. Came back here to add this note: I'm leaving this post here rather than delete it, but I changed my mind about almost-simultaneous delivery. My final thoughts on it are in my post below that says 'Meet In The Middle.'  i.m.h.o.
