Something I noticed about VH today...

Recommended Posts

During a Radio 1 documentary on the early years of the band Chris spoke about a time that him and Will went busking when they were students and they played a couple of Simon & Garfunkel songs before being moved along.

 

Chris has also mentioned that the opening line of Violet Hill was written during his time at UCL. Anyway, I was listening to I Am a Rock by Simon & Garfunkel today and noticed that the opening lyrics are quite similar to Violet Hill's.

 

"A winter's day, in a deep and dark December/I am alone, gazing from my window to the streets below/On a freshly fallen silent shroud of snow"

 

"Was a long and dark December/From the rooftops I remember/There was snow/White snow/Clearly I remember/From the windows they were watching/While we froze down below"

 

Looks like he was inspired...

Violet Hill's lyrics originated from a Parachutes-Era song called December
