A Gospel version would sound great! I can just see the ironic video now too, with religous imagery and Chris banging away on the tambourine!I think I was 'ruined' by the beautiful acoustic version too, but I've slowly come round to the album version. When I'm in a very bright mood I love it, and it's great for dancing - really great - but most other times I'd prefer to hear Lost? I think I'm going to make a CD with the acoustic version for that one track on instead (with LiJ Acoustic as the 'kimchi only' bonus track )
The other thing I'd like to do, but don't have the technical skill, is to merge the two versions, with Lost? as a base which slowly adds in elements from Lost! I'd also really love to hear a Gospel version of Lost?
To answer the original question posed in this thread: When I first heard it, I honestly wasn't captured by it. I thought it had a mediocre appeal, and I wasn't excited by it at all. However, like many Coldplay songs, it was Chris' presentation of the song and his soulful interpretation of it through dance that captured me. "Whatever you do, do it enthusiastically and people will like it more" is true. It was Chris' enthusiasm as he sings and dances to the song that won me over to make Lost! one of my favorite Coldplay songs. My goal is to be able to dance as Chris does. For one thing, it seems to keep him in excellent physical shape. He's beautiful physically.honestly coldplay plays it live alot and its on the hot 100 charts while songs like death and all his friends , cementaries of london & strawberry dont get played at all!
honestly Lost! is the only coldplay song i hate because it is over done and that hiphop beat is annoying i like the Lost acoustic version though that should have been on the album
