Viva La Vida / Fish Tacos

Up until recently, I had considered myself a casual Coldplay listener; not wrapped up entirely in the craze but at the same time able to enjoy a few songs here and there. Then Coldplay dropped “Viva la Vida” on me, and everything changed. After listening to the four minute and four second masterpiece, I went back and tried to find any other Coldplay songs that used strings in such epic fashion, but nothing could match the emotion of “Viva la Vida”. I did, however, become hooked on Coldplay for a good solid week, which only made their newest effort sweeter and more relevant. You may have heard the clip from the new iTunes commercial, but listening to a sample and not the entire track is a serious injustice, so grab the song below.

MP3: Coldplay – “Viva la Vida”

Also, check out “Fish Tacos”, Immuzikation’s latest mash-up, which pits Coldplay up against Weezer, Cut Copy, the Blow, M.I.A., and the Reading Rainbow theme. Pretty much amazing.

    Same thing happened to me, but earlier on in their career. I sampled ‘The Scientist’ and instantly I was hooked on Coldplay like a drug. They are a truly amazing band. Happy listening!

    Yeh same thing here, but also a favorite of mine has been speed of sound. Coldplay has lots of potential but tends to only have a few good songs i like. They just need to spice it up a bit.
