Sorry if this is taking a good thing too far, but I wanted to post some video links for Coldplay this morning so John could check them out. Unfortunately, my work computer has youtube.com blocked.
The first video is extraordinary, more for a couple of amazing dancers than for the music, but it gives you a nice sample of Coldplay music and a visual of the group too:
The Hardest Part
Next are live versions of 3 of my favorite Coldplay songs:
Fix You starts out kind of slow and meandering, but has that killer chorus at the end.
The Scientist has a nice chord progression and interesting lyrics.
I remember Yellow because at the concert I went to, they released a bunch of yellow balloons from the rafters for a different visual effect.
Again, sorry for the intrusion. Promise I won't post any more of these except as a response in one of John's music diaries.
