"Extraordinary" is a song recorded by American singer-songwriter Mandy Moore. The first single released from her 2007 album "Wild Hope", it is also the first track on the album.

The song differs significantly from her earlier work. Whereas songs such as "Candy" and "I Wanna Be with You" are synthesized bubblegum pop, "Extraordinary" has a more organic and instrumental sound; it features violins, drums, and guitars. According to Moore's official MySpace blog, the song explores her feelings of inferiority and her effort to try and break free from thoughts.Fact|date=August 2007


The song was first released to Moore's MySpace page on January 29, 2007. It was released to the iTunes Store, Apple Inc.'s music store, on April 10, 2007, which was Moore's 23rd birthday. Moore performed the song live for the first time at the official first televised ceremony of the Brick Awards on The CW, though she has also performed the song at a number of smaller gigs. [ [http://www.mtv.com/news/articles/1555792/20070328/lavigne_avril.jhtml MTV News] ] The song is included in the trailer of the film "Georgia Rule", which stars Lindsay Lohan. The song was also played on an episode of "" where Moore was brought to the family's new home.

"Billboard" magazine said that "Moore's once-girlish vocals now project a richer, more purposeful texture, well-suited to the autobiographical theme...". [ [http://www.billboard.com/bbcom/content_display/reviews/singles/e3i1df4dfd4706f9fc3a3deb336fb0e972a "Billboard"] ]

Music video

The video premiered on Yahoo! Music and MTV's "Total Request Live" on May 7, 2007. It was shot in March and features Moore playing a variety of different characters, including Amelia Earhart (at the top). In the video, the numerous Moores are stacked on top of each other, and in the background the scene is changing from a city to clouds to show the height of the characters on top of each other. Moore's last character drifts down with a parachute.

The video peaked at number twelve on VH1's Top 20 Countdown on July 14, 2007.
