Have you guys seen the Beatles' "Get Back" video? IT TOTALLY RIPS OFF "WHERE THE STREETS HAVE NO NAME."

FUCK YOU, PAUL MCCARTNEY. WHAT KIND OF WEIRDO NAMES HIS RECORD COMPANY APPLE ANYWAY.

Props to mofo, MVD, lmj, 7, indra, typhoon, and all those who realize what a crock this thread is. THIS is why I swore I wouldn't open any more Coldplay threads in this forum for the rest of the year. But no, like a moron, I thought people might actually be complimenting the video or the song.

You people have got to get past the Coldplay copying U2 thing. "The lead singer walks alone, and then there's the whole band at the end!" OMG! It's damn near plagiarism!

There is nothing new under the sun, especially in the realm of the art form of the short music video. Like indra said, there are really only so many things you can do. Coldplay have more respect for themselves as a band than to sit and analyze every step U2 makes, and then try to replicate it. If they were copying them so blatantly, there would be a lawsuit. Coldplay sampled Kraftwerk on their new album and paid for the rights to do so. They are very deliberate when they know they are using someone else's original idea.

To perpetuate the idea that Coldplay won't scratch their asses without finding out how U2 scratch their asses first is nothing more than U2 fans being abnormally possessive of their favorite band and egotistical to think that U2 are all that original and worthy of being copied. Please, people, you've got to let it go.

At first it seemed like a Scientist rehash, except not backwards. I love how during the second verse some of the Baudot code is being shown on a building in the background, although I haven't decoded it yet.

Anyways, it felt too Scientisty to me, but the climax of the song totally redeemed the video. Loved the swinging lightbulb for some reason. Loved the crowd singalong despite them botching the vocal pattern of the very end of the song.

I like it more than the Speed of Sound video, for sure. I still think The Scientist is their best video though.

Liked it a lot
