Coldplay - Lost? (Acoustic)
The past few music picks have been electronic, which has been a bit overwhelming as of late. Hopefully the trends will shift and there will be a whole new generation of inspired muscians who don't bring laptops to their concerts as instruments.
Craving something a little slower, I dug up (scrolled through ipod library) Coldplay's 'Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends' album that was huge a few years back. I enjoyed this album quite a bit, especially the singles 'Violet Hill' and 'Viva La Vida'.
When listening through, the song Lost? was pretty good, but it was the acoustic version that really captured me. The understated piano backing really accentuated the beautiful lyrics and gave the song a tone that sits somewhere between melancholy and inspirational. I remember learning a simplified version of this song on piano, but like most of the songs I used to play, the muscle memory has faded away from lack of practice.
