I have a saying you may see from time to time…… I love Coldplay, they bumped Grateful Dead as my favorite band (to third with Metallica going to number two after falling madly in love with James Hetfield of Metallica). This saying is, they ‘took the role with me’. So what does that mean? In late September 2010, after a (rare) NON stressful day at the diabetic call center I worked at, I was driving home. My (then) one hour commute home, going 5 MPH under the speed limit, I was relaxing to the zen that is Coldplay and the song “Fix You”. I was about 5 minutes from home and my tire blew. My car started shaking and shuttering from side to side until I was over correcting. The next thing I knew I was on my roof…. sliding. It happened so fast, I did not even have time to be frightened to the extent I should have been! The whole time “….. lights will guide you home, and ignite your bones and I …. will fix you” played. So as I rolled, Coldplay played and I stayed calm. They are an amazing band and always were in my top five favorites but are now my number one all time favorite band. There are so many of their songs that are beyond great, but this particular song just stands out. It is not just my favorite Coldplay song, but I feel it is the 10th best song ever recorded! The video is great…. ‘if we could only go back and do it over’. Plus Chris Martin is pretty cute, he is! Gwyneth Paltrow is a lucky lady! 😉 So enjoy, “The Scientist”, by Coldplay….. and what will number nine be? You will have to wait and see! Until next time, K.
