I'm gonna give it a solid 5. It's not the worst pop song ever, but it's not the best either.

Haters are gonna hate and..

lovers are gonna love. You can't please everybody, and obviously they didn't with this song.

So yeah, you can never really please everyone with music. We all have 'different' reasons for liking this band. I have never really been a Coldplay fan because of their lyrics. It's always been a music attraction, their music is really beautiful, and that seems to be extremely rare with music nowadays.

I really wasn't much of a fan of ETIAW. Both the lyrics and music weren't that good. I even change the station or turn the music down when that song comes on because I get the "what happened to your band dude" look or conversation. I tell them that they have other good songs and this is just one bad song out how many.

Part of me feels like I might get the same type of response to this song? Probably because the lyrics are unoriginal (being nice). The song title should be para-para-para-paradise instead. However, the music is GREAT. I really can close my eyes and enjoy the beauty of the music unlike ETIAW.

Back to my music before lyric point, it seems like they are writing the songs waaaay before any of the lyrics are composed. This album is a love story? Well, they wrote a lot of music that they liked and fit a bunch of cheesy lyrics into it. I think I can get over that, assuming the songs follow the sound of this instead of ETIAW.

Hate away on the lyrics if you want, I think a lot of us understand that. But the music? Sing a long because you love the melody, not the meaning. I think it really might help a lot of you.

I gave it a generous 2, because they wrote it and recorded it, and that must have been work.

The irony is that in their desperate attempt to please as many people as possible, they've done pretty much the opposite. Their best work came when they were being themselves, and now they're trying way too hard to be something that they're not.

Easier to accept than the possibility they could be selling out, but to be honest, that's not looking so inconceivable right now.
