I don't mind Coldplay. Clearly it's deeply unfashionable to admit such a thing but like going in to McDonald's the world over, you know what you're going to get, some of it's pretty offensive, some of it are staples of the menu and some of it is, well, quite appealing in certain situations. I can't listen to them in the house but don't mind listening to them on a long drive, much like Mickey Ds really although obviously I don't listen to a cheeseburger. Anyway. I remember in an interview that Bonio referred to Chris Martin as a lyricist of 'remarkable subtlety' at which point I nearly choked on my Big Mac, I mean has he actually ever listened to anything written by Chris Martin? Even Martin admits his lyrics aren't that great and after listening to Paradise on Mylo Xyloto, he's absolutely spot on with that admission. Check this out (my highlights for exceptional banality): When she was just a girl She expected the world But it flew away from her reach so She ran away in her sleep and dreamed of Para-para-paradise, Para-para-paradise, Para-para-paradise Every time she closed her eyes When she was just a girl She expected the world But it flew away from her reach and the bullets catch in her teeth Life goes on, it gets so heavy The wheel breaks the butterfly Every tear a waterfall In the night the stormy night she'll close her eyes In the night the stormy night away she'd fly and dreams of Para-para-paradise Para-para-paradise Para-para-paradise Oh oh oh oh oh oh-oh-oh She'd dream of Para-para-paradise Para-para-paradise Para-para-paradise Oh oh oh oh oh oh-oh-oh-oh lalalalalalalalalalala And so lying underneath those stormy skies She'd say, "oh, ohohohoh I know the sun must set to rise" This could be Para-para-paradise Para-para-paradise Para-para-paradise Oh oh oh oh oh oh-oh-oh This could be Para-para-paradise Para-para-paradise This could be Para-para-paradise Oh oh oh oh oh oh-oh-oh-oh How ******* bollocks is that little lot? Fourteen year old girls the world over churn out this sort of cliched shit a million times a day so how is it this tube is still in the band and how the hell did the rest of his bandmates not fall over pissing themselves laughing when he came up with these pearlers?
