The worst song theyve ever made, simples. If this was done by another band, no one here would listen twice.

Its not bad but its just not coldplay. Its way too slow and way too bland. Theres nothing to the song. It didnt even make the uk charts. Hopefully not all the album is like this otherwise its going to bomb big time

5/10 for the song

i respect ur opinion but it was too harsh. You probably didnt open up ur mind. I love this song i love to sing it and its a really really good song to jam to. If ur into bands perse. Its all abt the bass l:p)

Now that we know the reasons behind GS, the lyrics are not so plain.
but I still care more about the instrumentals in Magic.

I totally love "Magic".
To be real, when I found out that the first LP6 (Ghost Stories) single would be called Magic, I was kind of worried, every "type" of song that came to my mind talking about magic weren't in their best scenario... But when I listenned to song, I wasn't worried anymore, Coldplay always gets a way to come up with something awesome! :)

I've been reading some interpretations about this song; and a lot of people say that this song is about Chris breaking up with Gwyneth, but am I the only one that sees this song as a falling in love song? He doesn't know if call it magic or true because (for me) he's having the time of his life with this girl and he has been broken into two so many times that he's afraid of getting hurt. Perhaps, I'm the one wrong here, but I only see this song in this way...

And the instrumental of the song, I don't know, gives me an idea that is something good, what he's feeling...
Also, when he says "I wanna fall, fall so hard" I think he's saying that he wants to keep feeling this way, that's why he wants to fall, fall hard (fall into love).

And finally,
"And if you were to ask me
After all that we've been through
Still believe in magic?
Oh, Yes, I do
Of course I do"
I think some people see this part as "we pass through so much fights and stuff... but I still love you" but I see as "We passed through so much heartbreaks before and you may not believe in magic (love) anymore but I still do, because I love you, and all the heartbreaks were worth it, since they led me to you"

i just found an interesting article regarding Raging Fire in relation to Coldplay's Magic. LOL :D :D

There's a curious thing going on with the major new singles out this week. Phillip Phillips' latest "Raging Fire" sounds a bit like Coldplay, while Coldplay's latest single "Magic" doesn't sound much like Coldplay at all.

Thoughts are already mentioned but my motivation to choose a poll is just 5-6. I means this pool answer suitable for me is 5.
