You get this and it's pretty damn awesome! You really hear Viva la Vida at 3:39

So is there also a chance to get the 'whole' file (yes, also with Love Story at the beginning) 'cause I think it fits pretty well into it :)


If someone was able to upload that as well (without the rambling of the guy at the end of course) I would be really happy :)

I saw this song again on youtube today and loved it again, but I remembered the guy on his official website saying that they had to get permission before they could repost the mp3 version of the song.

Well, apparently, according to the main page of his site Coldplay didn't give him permission to use viva in the song so there is a chance he will have to take down the original video. However, Taylor Swift DID give him permission and he recreated the song as Love Story meets Love Story.


Does anyone else think it strange that Coldplay wouldn't give him permission? I dunno I guess I thought they would be more open to allowing this as they did a similar thing with the Talk guitar riff. But then again maybe they are skeptics after the whole satriani lawsuit. Either way I don't like it, it makes me sad that such a beautiful composition won't be allowed by an artist I love.
