ok, just my own experience. I had a leaked copy of Lost? ( aka the acoustic version ) , played it alot before I got my hands on the rest of the album, and liked it alot.

You know how some songs grow on you and you get comfortable with them? Well that's how it was with Lost? I haven't gotten sick of it and like it as well as say Lovers or Cemetaries.

I think the pop appeal of the album version, Lost!, explains why it's getting so much play.

Lost is one of my fav songs of the disc, but I prefer the acoustic version!

By the way, my favourite one is Viva La Vida!

yea zsub is right. it appeals to non REAL coldplay fans who just listen to mainstream music. it has a catchy beat and its not too complicated. idk how to explain it but it doesnt surpise me at ALL that its popular. although it is also one of my least favorites on the new album.
That's how I explain its popularity. Although I have to disagree on that last bit; it's actually one of my favorites on the album. Along with its appeal to those who listen to mainstream music it also appeals to Coldplay's more devoted fans, which explains why they tend to play it live more. I wouldn't be surprised (or disappointed) if it became their next single.

I think lyrically, Lost! is pants... bordering on cringeworthy. I love the instrumentation though, and Jonny's solo. It is one of the weaker tracks on the album and I often find myself skipping it.

It's so popular because of the great harmony in the "every river that I tried to cross" part. Will sounds great when he sings that bit live.

I usually skip it. Not a favourite at all :( I find it cheesy.

Prefer the other version of it.

Kind of gone off this song now.

"And I'm just waiting 'til the shine wears off". Bitterly ironic, no?

This so is popular because it is the most commercial song on the entire album... BUT... Coldplay also proves (with Viva La Vida (song) ) that you don't have to be commericial to make it big

I can understand the perspectives of both the 'lovers' and 'haters'
but as i personally love the song i gotta support the lovers

The track is just so inspiring and uplifting, it gets you excited you know! It makes a perfectly horrible day, feel a little less horrible

It reminds me that, i can get through even the worst of times

Plus the beat is just sooo WOW... i try and dance like Chris Martin when i listen 2 it ! ahahah:stunned:
