    I don't know, I like the song a lot. It's not "poppy" but more Ballard driven which is what I think a lot of us were looking forward to with A Head Full of Dreams. It's kind of like a cross between a Rush of Blood to the Head and Ghost Stories, though this comparison might not be entirely true.


    Whatever you classify this song as, I like it and I want more of it.


    gai posted her thoughts on the track:


    "didn't watch the set yet, but listened to the song. certainly similarities to AIMH. a little too many for my liking. for me, it is a nice song, in a bad way. this is right up coldplay's alley. been there, done that. a little too many times. and for me, not worth repeating. you've gotta get people's hearts racing when you allude to new music from a new era! like with midnight, however disappointing it was afterwards. but remaining optimistic for lp7 wouldn't mind if this song goes the way of MTM (although how i wish for MTM to have been included in MX!)"


    alisbe reflects on the meaning of the song's lyrics:


    "Life has a crazy beautiful design"

    Amazing day for me sums up what we live. We have had different experiences that makes us what we are. Our families, friends, colleagues, classmates or even people we met occasionally are part of how we see the world. Also, we have have travelled to places where we see the beauty of whatever is around us.

    For me life isn't perfect. But, I believe we should be thankful for what we have. God, the universe, our parents, our families, who ever you want to thank for.

    Sorry for this essay. But, it's just to stay we are human beings who have our own believes. In a certain way, what we think is the correct answer to the questions we have. It won't be true until is stated on a book with the support of so many other people. So, just relax and enjoy what you want to enjoy. Don't try to change the point of view of others if you don't have a valid argument. And don't try to say what you think is right just because you think so. Be tolerant with what other fans think. Be respectful even when you're on the other side of the computer. Let's all have an amazing day inl a forum where we share our love and thoughts about a band that has the ability to make incredible songs in any kind of genre"


    The tune has also produced some very split opinions on our forums, with many pages of debates! To head on over and voice your opinon, click here.
