[T.Ivarsson] "Run 2 was never pressed a second time because John Denver sued New Order. John Denver claimed that Run resembled his Leaving on a Jet Plane and they settled the case outside the court. It is said that on some releases of ? - (The Best Of) New Order, John Denver is listed as a co-writer to the song, or the co-publisher of the song is 'Cherry Lane Music Publishing Company Inc.', which happens to be John Denver's publishing company...."

Q: What does MTO stand for?
A: Two popular theories are "Mid Tempo One" and "Much Too Old". The latter because the working title for Fine Time was "Much Too Young."
