But I just don’t get why people are crazy about Coldplay. I like them. I find their music pleasant, but there’s really nothing exciting or memorable about them.
On my way to work this morning, I was listening to their new song (iTunes tells me its called Viva la Vida). About halfway through I realized that I hadn’t paid a BIT of attention to the song at all, so I listened to it again. I still don’t know what the song was about nor can I remember any of the words.
Maybe there’s something musically sophisticated that is lost on me. Or maybe there is lyrical genius in the songwriting and I miss it because the music itself is so mellow, but–to me–there’s just nothing interesting about it. I know Chris Martin is considered genius and LOTS of people love them. I even own a couple CD’s myself, but I still don’t get it.
Anyone want to enlighten me?
