Coldplay Rocks! August 6, 2006

Posted by jojoe in Personal.

Duh. Just bought “Fix You” off Coldplay’s latest, “X&Y”. This song rocks so hard. I am still tingling. It is the song you are hearing in the ad for the Twin Towers movie. Haven’t heard it on the radio yet. Don’t know why… buy it or get it… immediately!!

The song was released in 2005 and maxed out at #59 on the Billboard Hot 100. Their single more recently released (“Talk”) has apparently done better commercially (see this link to Billboard.

If you like Coldplay you might like The Fray – the two songs I have heard are “How to Save a Life” and “Over My Head (Cable Car)” and they had some of the same qualities.

Actually as I was looking for a link to some information about them I laugh when I see the following quotes about them:
“The Fray are among the first of what appears to be an incipient flood of bands to combine the influence of British neo-stadium acts like Coldplay and Keane…” and “You just can’t picture them giving anyone chills.” Pretty ironic. (Allmusic.com talks about The Fray)

I like “Over My Head”. It’s getting played to death on the radio here. The song doesn’t quite have the spin bike/moutain climbing vibe I am looking for and I think I am getting sick of it to listen to at my desk.
