I have a confession to make to you, dear reader. After laying into Coldplay’s X&Y; album back in June, I’ve slowly come to realise that I really really like it. I still stand by what I wrote, but the grrr in my words has left me.
I left it alone for a while, then listened to it again a month or so later. Then again. And again. Each time was like a sneaky fag hanging out of the bedroom window so your Mum doesn’t know you’re smoking (actually, she knew all the time). But now I feel I can come out as an X&Y-liker.; The lyrics still suck beyond belief, I’m still a bit disappointed they didn’t try harder, but, thems some nice melodies.
While I’m here, I’ll also confess to a few other things.
Number one, my favourite song at the moment is Kelly Clarkson’s Since U Been Gone. I’m not sure how that happened, what with it being TV-bred Avril Lavigne Lite, but it did happen.
Number two, Cartoon Heroes by Aqua is a song I love.
And thirdly, probably the biggest crime of all, We All Stand Together by Paul McCartney and The Frog Chorus… it’s just lovely, it makes me melt.
