Music Challenge #19: “Ordinary World” — Green Day Ft. Miranda Lambert #amwriting #musicchallenge #MLMM

For this December 29, 2017, our last Music Prompt of the year will be the song “Ordinary World” by Green Day, featuring Miranda Lambert. When I heard about this collaboration on Green Day’s newest album I was curious to hear the song as Green Day’s punk-rock style is quite the opposite of Miranda Lambert’s wholesome country, even when her songs are angry.

Nevertheless, I think Billie Joe Armstrong, Green Day’s lead singer, demonstrates his talent and versatility in this song and I think like me, you’ll love the final result of his and Lambert’s. voices together. Wishing you a Happy New Year and the versatility to move through life and it’s changes.

According to Jeff Gage, in the article “Hear Green Day, Miranda Lambert’s Yearning Duet ‘Ordinary World,” from Rolling Stone Magazine, Lambert can ” add pop-punk icons Green Day to her list of collaborators, thanks to “Ordinary World,” a song that appears on the band’s new Greatest Hits: God’s Favorite Band.”

Also, this “isn’t the first time that Green Day has released ‘Ordinary World'” as the song has the same name as “a 2016 film starring Green Day frontman, Billie Joe Armstrong, as an aging punk rocker.” The tune was “later released, in a similarly stripped down, acoustic fashion, on the California trio’s 2016 LP Revolution Radio.

The current release of “Ordinairy World” remains “mostly faithful to the original, with Lambert’s harmonies adding a . . . sense of longing” to the sing. As well, “Armstrong and Lambert have sung together” before as they “performed the Everly Brothers’ song ‘When Will I Be Loved'” at the 2014 Grammies.

Moreover, “‘Ordinary World’ is one of two new songs on the 22-song God’s Favorite Band compilation, with the other being a never-before-released ‘Back in the USA.’ Lambert, meanwhile, is fresh-off winning Female Vocalist of the Year honors at the 51st CMA awards . . .”


“Ordinary World” by Green Day Featuring Miranda Lambert


Use “Ordinary World ” as a source of inspiration for any form of creative expression (including but not limited to short stories, poems, lyrics, artwork, photography, etc.). Alternatively, If you are a musician, use this as an opportunity to showcase your own work.

What do you think Billy Joe is singing about in this poem? What kind of things should exist in the ‘ideal ordinary world’? Likewise, you can reflect on certain lyrics, or write about whatever this song inspires in you.


Ordinary World” by Green Day ft. Miranda Lambert

****

[Verse 1: Billie Joe Armstrong (with Miranda Lambert)]

Where can I find the city of shining light

In an ordinary world?

How can I leave a buried treasure behind

In an ordinary world?

*****

[Chorus 1]

The days into years roll by

It’s where that I live until I die

Ordinary world

*****

[Verse 2]

What would you wish if you saw a shooting star

In an ordinary world?

I’d walk to the end of the earth and afar

In an ordinary world

*****

[Chorus 2]

Baby, I don’t have much

But what we have is more than enough

Ordinary world

*****

[Verse 1]

Where can I find the city of shining light

In an ordinary world?

How can I leave a buried treasure behind

In an ordinary world?

*****

[Chorus 2]

Baby, I don’t have much

But what we have is more than enough

Ordinary world

*****
