Viva la Vida

This will be short. If you haven’t heard Coldplay’s new Viva la Vida track from the upcoming record of the same name, get ready. This anthem is brilliantly written and beautiful. Mega-hits sell tickets and albums. Art can inspire. This might do both.

And, talk about getting something stuck in your head! I think the next atmospheric rhythm of where-the-streets-have-no-name proportion is here.

What do you think?

Update: Viva la Vida was selected for the latest iTunes ad.

    There’s a rumor out that they plagiarized the melody. Have you heard anything about it?

    I have – but it’s made very little press. I heard the Creaky Boards song, but I’m not convinced Chris Martin is a thief. I’ve heard a lot more “closely related” pieces before.

    Just saw this:“Viva La Vida was written and demoed in March 2007, which is more than six months before [Creaky Boards] claims Chris went to see them!”See .
