Coldplay‘s Viva La Vida is perhaps the world’s most overplayed song these days. You may want to scream when you hear it, it’s so played out by MTV, Top 40 and soccer teams. But there’s something about this song. I was never particularly a fan of Coldplay until this album, and this song in particular has some magical quality, as evidenced in the video below.
As much as I love the escuincles, singing kids, instead of inspiring me, instead normally have a more nauseating effect on me. This video, however, actually moved me to tears. As the original title of this amateur video reads: remind me again why music shouldn’t be in public schools? Answer: it should be.
