You should like Coldplay because they jump around in boxes just like you do. Oh you don’t? Oh…well they do. So like them.
Say what you want about Coldplay, but no matter what you say, they do have legitimate song-crafting talent.
It’s almost a given that the cool indie kids all bash Coldplay. In fact, it’s become so ubiquitous that I think it’s come full circle; you’re now cool and hip if you’re brave enough to admit that Coldplay is actually pretty good…with qualifications, of course. One mustn’t forget the qualifications.
Whatever, without further ado, here is the reason for my post. It’s 3:25 AM and just before heading off to sleep, I stumbled upon the FREE new single from Coldplay’s upcoming album, “Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends.” Yes, I thought of Ricky Martin too.
I’m likin’ the song and I’m hoping the new album lives up to my expectations.
Song of the Day:
Go get the FREE single! It’s called “Violet Hill.”
Well, it looks like it’s no longer available for free. You can go listen to it though. Sorry if you, like me, didn’t know about this a week ago, and missed out (I got it last minute). I could just upload it, but I’m not testing the RIAA gods on this one. I’m sure they’re out like hawks. Hungry ones.
