“When she was just a girl. She expected the world, but it flew away from her reach. So she ran away in her sleep” (AZ lyrics 1). This is the lyrics to a Coldplay song that many people enjoy, but not many people know. So what is it that makes Coldplay unique from other bands? In my opinion I will say their music. Not only is it different, but when listening to their music you can almost picture yourself living it. Coldplay in my opinion is one of the best bands. Their music is truly amazing, melodious, soothing and unique. Every time I listen to Coldplay my sole seems to leave my body and goes into another dimension. The lyrics, the beat, it is different from all this music that people tend to hear now in days. The lyrics are simple and relatable.…show more content…
Therefore, just because I like Coldplay it does not mean that someone else will. I get that. I honestly cannot find a reason to consider their music boring. Their music is admirable to me for different reasons. One of the reasons is because Coldplay’s music does not talk about sex, drugs, and girls. Instead, they talk about life experiences and motivate you to do better. That is not boring to me, but everyone is entitled to their own opinions. Today’s music makes no sense to me. For example, Rihanna’s song “Work”. I find nothing admirable about her song. Yes the beat is nice, but the lyrics are not so good. In the song Work the lyrics, “Work, work, work, work, work, work. He said me haffi” (AZ Lyrics). First of all what is “haffi”? Second, what message am I supposed to comprehend from this song? The only message I get is to work. Now let us look at one of Coldplay’s songs. In their song “Fix you” the lyrics, “And high up above or down below. When you're too in love to let it go, but if you never try you'll never know. Just what you're worth” (AZ Lyrics). We can obviously see proper English, and it also shows you a message. The message that I comprehend from this lyrics is that no matter how much you love a person sometimes it is better just to let go. Let us compare Rihanna’s song and Coldplay’s. Which one makes more sense? I choose Coldplay’s, and I am not stating that I do not like Rihanna’s…show more content…
They recently performed at the super bowl half-time, and were horribly criticized. One of the comments was, “Worst halftime show of all time. And let me make this clear up front, the fault lays with the people that staged and produced the show, NOT the artists. Coldplay was an awful choice. I could not understand why the NFL would select them to perform. They are not a high energy band that should be playing stadiums” (FOX Sports 1). Everyone has different opinions to what a “high energy band” is defined as. In my opinion a “high energy band” is when there is jumping around, dancing, singing/no lip synching and playing real music. I strongly believe that Coldplay did all of that, but it is okay to disagree. Beyoncé and Bruno Mars joined Coldplay in the halftime show, which brought many more negative comments. Some people agree that Beyoncé and Bruno Mars stole Coldplay’s show. Which obviously I disagree with. In my opinion, I believe that it is up to the persons taste in music. Some people tend to not like slow, sentimental music. Instead they prefer loud, motivational music. Beyoncé and Bruno Mars music genre is very different from Coldplay’s. In a way I agree, but also I disagree with peoples opinions. I agree in the fact that maybe the halftime show was not the right place for Coldplay to perform in. People were expecting loud known music and instead they brought out a band that plays different music that some people might
