I can’t really say that I listen to Coldplay a lot, and I only like a small handful of their songs. To be honest, I haven’t been familiar with any of their albums after their second one…erm, I think it’s the second one? (A Rush Of Blood To The Head.) This song “Politik” starts off that album and it’s my absolute favorite Coldplay song ever.
So, yes, I luuuurve this song for its first 30 seconds, and the last 1:15 which.is.magnificent. Ohmygoodness, the last 1:15 is absolutely crazy amazing to run to by the way….and come to think of it, if I remember correctly, it’s really fantabulous live. They played at Fuji Rock Festival in Naeba back in 2003 when I was living in Tokyo…except that Chris Martin kinda ruined it by “moaning” loudly over these parts too much. But on a sunnier note, it’s yummy because he plays the piano. So hot.
My certain someone at the time told me that he found it quite amusing that I only liked the Coldplay songs that either got really loud then really soft (like “Politik“), or really soft then really loud (“Such a Rush“). I just remembered that. *shrug*
