I always thought it was Chris saying, "That's a bit faster" to Jonny or whoever is clapping by themselves at the beginning of the song.

"Strawberry Swing"

Champion: Those are actually Brian [Eno's] handclaps at the beginning of that song, and -

Martin: If you listen very closely, you can hear him complaining about the tempo at the beginning of that song.

Champion: That's mostly what he does, complain about tempos.

Martin: [In a booming Brian Eno voice] "Oh, that's much too fast."

"Death and All His Friends" and "The Escapist"

Martin: Well, this is supposed to be the theme of the album, really. We're aware of all the bad stuff in life, you know - i.e. Death and all his friends - but that doesn't mean you should ever give in to it, you know? So we all sing that bit together really loudly, as kind of a message to ourselves: never giving up and never focusing on the bad stuff too much

I think it´s nice to have a little miracle , isn´t it!??

Sure that the mystery is solved?? :)

Though I think it is "it´s a bit fucked" I´m not sure.. Somehow I don´t think they would have the line"..fucked" on their album. But it´s just a word from the background so it could be "fucked".. In interviews Chris sometimes says "fucked".. so I don´t know. :thinking: But that it could be another person like Brian is a good idea!

But for me it doesn´t sound like "oh thats much too fast". Nevertheless it could be Brian or someone else as well..

All I can say is that I loved Strawberry Swing the most of the new songs.. from the beginning til now.. and that I know anything. :)




EDIT: OH I SEE THE MYSTERY HAS ALREADY BEEN SOLVED :)

If it was a swear word you'd get a coarse language label with your record

At first I thought it was Chris but I think he's counting so it must be someone else. Don't know who, whether Guy or Brian Eno, but I understand "that's a bit fast/flat." I more tend to "fast" but I'm not really sure.

I heard the song on my Ipod over and over to notice this.
It's Guy saying "It's a bit flat."

If you crank up the volume, you can clearly see it says It's a bit flat
Yes, you can hear a "t" instead of a "ck"
And why most people here vote for Chris saying that :thinking:. It's Guy, you can hear a bit of Scottish on that voice :rolleyes:

It sounds like Chris Martin but it does sound like he's cursing!
