Coldplay as List





I have a love hate relationship with Coldplay.

The Hates:

  • Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow are too good to be true ... just wait.
  • Chris is just plain weird ... and he dresses funny.
  • Chris is too accessorized; too many bracelets, layers of clothing, and patches.
  • Yellow is one of the most obnoxious songs I have ever heard.
  • I have no desire to see a Coldplay concert.

The Loves:

  • I love A Rush of Blood to the Head
    • it always reminds me of my first year of college, because I listened to it constantly
  • I love that Don't Panic is on the Garden State soundtrack
    • when I went to Italy in 2005 I was listening to the Garden State soundtrack on the plane, while I am quite certain that every single other person was sleeping, and I was wide awake
    • for whatever reason, it is such a pleasant memory, listening to my iPod and grimmacing at my roommate who was fast asleep
  • I love Mylo Xyloto
  • ... it's a very redeemable album, because I was not a huge fan of X&Y and Viva La Vida
  • it also contains good song after good song
  • ... my top choices include: 
    • Charlie Brown
    • Us Against the World
    • Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall
    • ... plus the single Paradise is decent
