1.21 gigawatts.  Which I assume means that he likes Ordinary Love.  The guy is always cryptic and probably has the Urban Dictionary memorized.  Or perhaps, he is being sarcastic about liking the song.  Who knows?

Really like Ordinary Love. It was important for me in my journey to becoming re-obsessed with U2. That began when my mom became ill and then passed away. I started watching old U2 videos on YouTube that I hadnít seen in ages, because I found them comforting. Gloria, Two Hearts Beat as One, Still Havenít Found. Then I started watching some newer videos of music I didnít know as well or didnít know at all. I discovered Ordinary Love through the Fallon clip. Iíd never heard the song before and it was beautiful, and what a stunning performance. Four guys in their fifties sitting on a couch, and they killed it.

Not to sidetrack but...  That 1981 MTV Gloria video is what got me hooked on to U2.  I was 21 at the time and after seeing it, there was no going back.

And I agree with you about that Fallon Ordinary Love performance!

Sarcasm crossed my mind with the 4evah! post but with Doc Brown here I thoight we were quite out of character but what do I know?

Maybe miry clay just hates OL more than I realized. A burning flame of passionate hate. A cross carried.

It's ok, miry, you can carry this weight.

I think that he probably hates the track thus the two drive-by posts.  Yep, let him carry the weight.

Doc Brown?

I assume the "original" cut was the Nelson Mandela version? If so, the Extraordinary mix is very similar.

I have to say, it's a very difficult song to sing.

I have no clue what mix or version this is.  I just like it because the band is in it.  It's probably been around for five years since it has over 4 million views.

Yeah, I'm guessing that's the original or very close to it (first verse showing up again later on).

Seems (relatively) popular with the young'uns.

121 jig a watts.

Is everything ok?

It was a Back to the Future reference. I was referring to the eight months Fallon quote.

If you read the whole thread, dude, I already figured that out and posted it to the thread.

Then I must be a "young'un".  Whatever that term implies.
