''I’m not a big believer in the supernatural. But six years after the death of my friend David Miles, I started to feel a weight inside me. ‘Ordinary World’ was the act of letting that go.'' - Simon Le Bon
''We wrote ‘Ordinary World’ while the first Gulf War was on. The lines, ‘Papers in the roadside tell of suffering and greed/ feared today, forgot tomorrow / Here beside the news of holy war and holy need / ours is just a little sorrowed talk’ put everything in perspective. It makes you realize that a story about two people is just a tiny part of this huge story which is called humanity.'' - Simon Le Bon
''After more than two decades of performing “Ordinary World, this song holds a special place in our repertoire. All we have to do is be true to the music. And let the song do the work.” - Simon Le Bon
