OVERRATED: 'Ordinary Love' by U2

In fairness to the creators of the Idris Elba-starring biopic "Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom," it may be impossible to shoot a film about human rights in South Africa without U2, given the band's longtime activism. That said, brace yourself for the minor travesty if Bono & Co. beat out "Frozen's" "Let It Go" for original song with a U2-by-the-numbers entry that serves as a harsh reminder of how long its been since the band sounded vital.
