VIVA LA VIDA: COLDPLAY






Last Wednesday night, Kristie and I went to see Coldplay at the AAC.  We went with the Clark's. After finding our seats, you always wonder what kind of folks you are going to be sitting by. You find out really fast after the band comes out for the first time. This middle aged lady with Dallas hair was on our right with some guy.  When Coldplay came out the guy started pointing at the sky and put his hands in his face, and the lady started shaking her hair all around and dancing.  I switched places with Kristie so she could see (she's just a little one) and the lady proceeded to slap Kristie in the face with her hair the entire night. Danny and Christina told us later that they had two intoxicated women making out in the row in front of them. Concerts, you never know who you're going to sit by.

Coldplay was unbelievable. I tried not to go too crazy, but there were times when it was like too good to be true. The sound was so perfect and loud. Laser lights (which Danny hopes are in heaven), video balls, confetti, Tony Romo.  They played a few songs up in the crowd.  If you haven't bought Viva La Vida, I am not sure what you are doing, but you need to stop.  You also should probably buy their new EP.  I bought a $20 program that is a freaking masterpiece, I don't know if I should open it or hang it on the wall.  Maybe I should chop it up and hang it next to my Stryper poster in the office. 

Is it possible to worship God through Coldplay? I don't know, but I think I did. When I hear really amazing music, even if it is not Christian, I always want to praise God. If you only listen to one song, download "Fix You" and listen to it 5 times in a row. After you finish weeping, listen to it again. Unbelievable! The Brits have it together. Come on America!

Meghan thinks coldplay sucks. When she says that, I say she sucks. Viva la Coldplay. I sing "Fix You" to Reese when she's crying.
