It should be ordinary

A  nice piece by friend of this blog Mark Meynell on "Ordinary Love" for redeemingsound. Excerpt:
As the song suggests, [Mandela] showed a love for the other, the different, the opponent, that is unparalleled in the modern world. Which ironically makes it an extraordinary love. But the fact that it should be ordinary seems to be the point.  This is the song’s key refrain: “We can’t reach any higher/fall any further if we can’t feel/deal with ordinary love.”
