At first I hated this track. I mean I liked it but compared to the others it was not so good. Well after more listens to it I am starting to like it more and more.

I think its a very cool song - not the best in the album (sorry Jenika) - but one of Coldplay's different but nice songs! The African beat is amazing and many people agree with Lore on the fact that it makes people happy!

So Coldplay has done it again! They were the kings of sad songs and now they are becoming the kings of happy songs...Isn't this band great?

cheers

i can't TELL you how much i love this song. i could gush for hours, but that would be annoying.

i'm thinking this song will safely reside in my top 5 coldplay tracks for perhaps ever. i don't even really think that's novelty talking. i seriously think it's wedged its way into my top 5, even though i have no idea what it kicked out :p

This song reminds me of the TV Show The O.C. speccially the scenes where Seth and Summer were together.

If Strawberry Swing doesn't make you feel happy, then you're already dead. I'm surprised to say that this is my favourite song on the album, and everytime I listen to it, nothing else seems to matter, and I can escape to some indefinable paradise for 4 minutes or so!

Gosh, I love this song. It's probably my favorite, with "Cemeteries of London" in second place. "Strawberry Swing" was actually the song I was most looking forward to ever since they released the tracklisting. I figured it was going to be a surprise gem at the end of the album sort of like "Swallowed in the Sea" on X&Y!

I think the reverse loop effect that buckland uses is what makes the song. IMO

I think the song has some Hispanic harmonies and African rhythmic.

is a very good mix which have succeeded

Hey does anybody else think that it feels like's Chris trying to sound like Jack Johnson in this track? Especially when he says "strawberry swing!"
