Without you I just slide away
The sky could be blue, I don't mind
Without you it's a waste of time
These are my favorite lyrics to the song, of which I have here posted the lovely music video. To be honest though, I am listening to "Somebody to Love" by Queen as we speak...as I am writing a post about...a Coldplay song. Oh well, some things in life just don't make sense.
Anyway, this is one of those songs where the music alone renders the listener more at peace. Maybe it's the playful tune that swings slowly like a pendulum from one note to the next; or, maybe it's the soothing, flowing hues of lead singer Chris Martin's voice that nearly echo into the background mass of melodic waves, waves that one can easily get lost in (and I mean 'lost' in a good way).
Whatever the source of this sense of calm, it doesn't hurt to have even just a brief listen when you are in need of a study/work break, if you need something to get your creative/artistic juices flowing as much as the song, or if you just plain love Coldplay (one of my own personal reasons!).
So go ahead, press the play button and allow the aura take hold of your senses!
