Okay, this has probably been asked before, so sorry I'm coming off as redundant. I don't really post here much, but I love to read everyones opinion of the band. Lovers in Japan is probably my favorite song off the new cd, and IMO one of their best songs ever. My question is what version does everybody else like better? Studio or acoustic? Personally, I enjoy the acoustic version more, but a lot of my friends (who really aren't big Coldplay fans) enjoy the studio version much more. Also on a side note, anybody here going to the show in Atlanta, GA?

So did I - especially with all those "butterflies" flying around. It's made for the live experience, and will become one of the most popular live Coldplay songs of all time.
It blew me away!!:cool:

Jeah, the butterflies are awesome! I ´ve got a whole bag full of them now :cool:
But to be honest... I did´t really listen to the song when the butterflies came down, they were stealing my attention...
Oh, and I like both, the acoustic and the normal version of the song, but I would´t say it´s one of their best songs :)

I wish I could have a bag full of those butterflies!!!

All the versions of this song are great. When I hear it, I like to pretend I'm Chris playing the keyboards. And it always makes me wonder about how beautiful can Osaka sun be :rolleyes:

I don't really care for the song, but if I had to choose one probably the acoustic.

Jesus, the studio version by far! The acoustic is decent - nice... - but it's the sonic landscape and the ridiculously good beat in the studio version that almost carries the middle section of the album, for me.

It genuinely was the first time I actually jumped out of my seat at a preview of the new album material when a clip of it performed live on whatever American show it was.

Probably one of the best things they've ever done.

I totally agree with that. This moment was the MOMENT of the show! Now when I listen this song I always remember the concert. :)

The acoustic feels a bit more intimate for me and kinda suits it a bit more :wacky:

It wasn't my favourite song of Viva la vida, but after the live performance in Milan I have to admit that is an incredible song, so involving and full of energy......
And the butterflies were lovely :heart:

i like them all equally. Lovers is my favorite song, so it's hard to pick. But if I want a calm, happy song, i like the Acoustic. it helps me fall to sleep (much like Strawberry Swing). The studio versions are also just as amazing, but they're louder songs i can play/listen to over background sounds. The studio versions are also cooler, well to me anyways.
