Coldplay are a rare band in that they are hugely popular and also good! I love their music so much and hardly listen to anything else these days. I find it interesting that their lyrics, though they (frustratingly) don’t always make sense to me, often reference God. I also heard Chris Martin, the band’s lead singer, saying in an interview that songs sometimes just ‘come down’ to him — more evidence that he’s aware of the existence of God.
Coldplay song titles like ‘Higher Power’ and ‘Church’ and lyrics like “I know Saint Peter will call my name” point to the singer’s (Catholic?) faith, though I haven’t heard him profess to being a Christian in an interview. I’d love to talk with him about the spiritual aspects of his music — I would have lots of questions about his lyrics!
Anyway, I thought I would share my current favourite Coldplay song with the hope that it brings someone reading this as much joy as it has brought me. There are very few Coldplay songs that I don’t love, but this is my current favourite and I’ve had it on repeat since I discovered it recently. The song is called ‘Atlas’. It’s a beautiful video as well. Enjoy!
I hope you were able to view the video in whichever region you’re in (I know sometimes embedded videos are restricted by YouTube). If there’s a song that you’re in love with at the moment, please leave a comment and let me know so I can take a listen. Blessings!
