a lot of people claim it's the best song but I honestly don't see why, I don't love it that much

Also, the quiet, atmospheric part of Life in Technicolor--which is the very beginning of the album and acts as an intro and an ending because of The Escapist--is almost exactly 42 seconds long.

The band must really like this song. :p

It's a really good song. i love it!' but (forgive me if that question asked before) why the name is 42? I know that Chris's fav. number is 42 but, anybody can answer me?:thinking:

42!!!!!!!

^ It might have to do with "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy", a novel by Douglas Adams in which the #42 is supposed to yield the answer to life and such.

Apologies if this question I have has already been answered:
Anyone remember when Chris said that there was one song on their 4th album that "everyone must listen to before they die"?
Does anyone know what song that was? I'm guessing 42 (cuz of it's awesomeness), but I don't know for sure....:inquisitive:

42 ~ Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends

^ :laugh3:
*drools in agreement*

Seriously though, the whole album is VERY addicting!
There has not been a single day so far when I didn't listen to it and its lively/deathly awesomeness! :dance:

the end part is a disapointment in my view but the intro and middle are awsome though!!

Ok I gave this song my first listens (I know I'm late...) and I must admit it's a great song.

But the beginning really reminds me of Neil Young's Philadelphia


but hm that's it


great song indeed
