I dunno, I LOVE this song, and I especially love it live. Maybe I'm in the minority though.

I love it too, and it's incredible live. Even though it has a big drumbeat and handclaps etc, it's not TOO obvious and in your face, there's something subtle about it. Great song, and amazing melody as always from Chris. The melodies on Viva are ridiculously great.

Lost! is absolutely terrible. Should've used Lost? instead.

I think the live recordings of the song do it ALOT of justice. There is just something about the album version that I cant get past. It is just "ok" for me. When I heard it live, I thought WOW! Will is awesome! It sounds great live.

I think a lot of people like Lost? better because it sounds more like Coldplay and Lost! is just different and it def. doesn't sound like Coldplay at all except it's you know Chris singing. I like how it changes the feel to it though.. Lost? is kinda depressing (well not depressing but you know what I mean) and Lost! sounds more like encouraging

Lost! is one of my favs. I definitely like it more than lost?

I can see why the band love it too...

Top song on the album! Perfect round, open melody in the chorus to compliment the tighter verse part. Plus "waiting til the shine wears off" is a nice little tidbit of lyric.

Yep, they definitely seem to like it more.

Kind of like 'A Whisper' also, Chris said it's one of his favorites, but not very popular amongst the fans.

I like "Lost!" more than "Lost?" because it doesn't sound like Coldplay.

I was getting tired of the same piano-y depressing things.
Not that I don't like their old songs, it's just awesome to hear something different from them.

I like Lost! on the album but I think its dimension is live, it's absolutely amazing and I'm loving it 1000 times more now :nice:

I love Lost! It's my second favourite on the album after Strawberry Swing ( a very close second)

As for the band loving it... on one of the UK radio interviews I've listened to recently, I remember them being asked which songs they worked on most. I think it was Guy who answered "Lost!" and "Viva La Vida"
