U2's "Ordinary Love" took home a second Golden Globe for Best Original Song from a Motion Picture at the Hollywood Foreign Press' awards ceremony this evening. In 2003, they won for "The Hands That Build America." In the band's acceptance speech, Edge said, "We have been working for President Mandela since the 70s since we were teenagers when we did our very first concert against the apartheid movement. It's taken us 35 years to write this song."
Larry said, "Not only South Africa, but thanks to Mandela, the course of history in our country, holy catholic Ireland, was changed forever. Amen."
Adam thanked Brian Burton for producing, Chris Martin for working out the song and welcomed Guy Oseary to the U2 family.
Bono stated "This really is personal for us. This man turned our life upside down, rightside up. This man who refused to hate, not because he didn't have rage or anger or these things, but he thought love would do a better job. We wrote a love song because what's extraordinary about the film is it is this kind of dysfunctional love story. You know about the global statesman, but you don't know about the man. We're good at the dysfunctional love stories."
