Actually, I think Coldplay's first couple of albums have some listenable songs, where non-Chris Martin qualities manage to at least partially obscure all the negatives of his voice. I cannot stand anything they've done that's ballady or slow, though.

I'm not sure I've heard a Coldplay song that you could call fast, actually. My favourites from Parachutes are probably Spies and Everything's Not Lost. mmmm, bass.

I did see that, yeah... seems like it might be worth a look, although I probably wouldn't go of my own volition. My mum might be interested, actually... she's into historical things.

Meh. Overplay of "Sweater Song" killed them for me. One of the dumbest songs ever written.

I prefer the classics: The Who, The Clash, Sex Pistols, Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd (maybe a little too much on that one), Jimi, stuff like that.

I'm certainly keen on seeing some of the stuff in there. The Fed Square Labyrinth sounds especially interesting, though I'm not sure I care enough to go to the effort of booking to do it.

So you guys were talking about that amazingly catchy song

YELLOW?

What a great song, and it's wonderful how it never gets stuck in your head too.

You can sit there and sing and sing and sing:

Look at the stars
Look how they shine for you
And everything you do
Yeah, they were all YELLOW


God what a fantastic song

YELLOW

is.
