Interesting song. Does the bridge remind anyone else of the buildup in Fix You ? :)

Me! I'm wondering if Chris only gave his vocals or also took part in composing, producing etc.

Yes, the Woohs are also quite Coldplayesque, aren't they ?

...and that organ sound in the background, and the strings, and the Clocks drumline as has been pointed out....it says composer Ricky Gervais, but this does sound a bit like a cross of Clocks/Fix You and Viva :) Love that song !

looks like chris didn't actually compose the song. just singing a bit. from a ricky gervais interview:

 

Finally, Electricity...

 

This is the odd one out on the album because it’s almost as if Brent has written this song after the movie, because in the film he tells a co-worker that he’s going to write about what’s happened to him, but ‘with a Coldplay vibe’. Because that’s what Chris Martin does: he takes ordinary, everyday things and makes them about the Universe.

 

And the joke is, when it kicks in over the end credits it’s exactly like a Coldplay song. In fact it’s like every one of their songs stolen and mismatched and put into this vehicle for Brent to sing about the Universe. And I thought it would be funny as a little Easter egg for Chris Martin to sing on it, but just the last few bars. When he heard the song he started laughing and said, ‘No I get it... let me help you to take the piss out of me’! But if Brent’s not singing it, it’s a cracking track! But this song is the odd one out; it’s like the behind the scenes of the movie taking over…

 

Q: Because it would be difficult imagining Chris Martin duetting with David Brent?

 

A: Of course. It does break the fourth wall really but only over the end credits…

 

Q: Although thinking about it, Chris Martin is a very lovely guy so maybe…

 

A: Oh yeah honestly, if there was a rep somewhere who bumped into Chris and asked him to do him a favour, Chris Martin would actually do it because he likes to help people!

Love this song. I do remember Ricky saying it was intended to sound like a Coldplay song and he nail it!

Maybe you can find it by the name of the album. It's Life on the road.

Thanks for that bit of common sense.... got it now.

Oh right - interesting. Yea, very Fix You-ish in the middle. It does fit the bill of being Coldplayesque.

I like this song.

 

It sounds so familiar already because of all the Coldplay related sounds.

 

I think I even hear some Paradise strings in it too at around 00:13 - 00:14 and 00:27- 00:28.
