Of course, a consistently positive outlook could in theory carry the individual through said economic hardships. It's just something I've been considering.

Charlie Brown is a cracking song. I originally was somewhat disappointed with the album version after hearing how brilliant it was live on YouTube.com, but Charlie Brown is now a highlight on par with the UFO/POC/UIF sequence, for me.

Really? Try living in a world without art and see how long before you off yourself. This is without a doubt, one of the most short sighted and ignorant things I've ever read on this site.

I also like the implication that by illegally downloading, since you aren't affecting the artists beacuse they make money from touring, it's ok. Like the record labels are completely staffed by cigar smoking aristocrats who don't need any more of your money. There's more to getting an album out into the world than burning your band's disk in your bedroom. Any thought beyond the caricature of the corporate fat cats you have in your head would reveal that to you

Alright gang. This thread has been derailed enough. The derail topic might make a good fym thread, but let's stick to the discussing the Coldplay album from here on out.

Can you survive without music? Yes, you can.

Can you survive without food? No, you can't.

Pretend for a minute that you have a terminal illness and that you will die in one month unless a medical scientist comes up with the cure to save you. Is Bono or Chris Martin going to save your life when they don't know anything about what's going on? Who's more important in those extreme situations that occur every single day?

I explicitly stated that music contributes entertainment and culture to society, but apart from that it doesn't contribute anything else and it's not necessary for survival. Music will prevail over our existence because millions of people like you will continue to defend it as something extremely important and indispensable when it actually isn't.

That trend will not last forever, think about environmental problems, overpopulation, overconsumption, and the decline of essential natural resources. When people finally get affected by these problems, their way of thinking will shift and music among other non-important things will not receive as much attention and money as they do today.

I can't see how to be any more clearer than this, it's glaring short-sightedness and ignorance from your part if you can't see the logic within this argument, very typical coming from a jive turkey.

What idiotic statement are you gonna say now? Maybe that video games are more important than education?

No one is arguing that music is more important than medical science. But your apparent suggestion that people who do not make a tangible contribution to society, however that may be defined, do not deserve compensation for their work is a "slippery slope" if I've ever heard one.

I don't understand why a few of you are so adamant about arguing completely obvious points. Yes, people download music illegally. No, music does not perform surgery or diagnose cancer. Can we move on now?

I love Major Minus.

And to answer a question from a few pages before: I've seen Coldplay twice, once from the floor about 100 feet from the band, and once in an amphitheater in the back. Both times, they made it out to the back and played for people. The second time is when I got to nearly touch Willy Champs (not his willy).
They are amazing live. Got some great visuals and Chris sounds great as well. Highly recommend seeing them if you are able.
