what i'm listening to right now

going to spend a lovely weekend with my boyfriend who has come up to visit me :]. even on rainy days like today, hearing this song in the morning always puts me in a good mood. reminds me to take a step back, slow down, and enjoy myself every once in a while.

also, the music video is really really cool! stop motion is always a win in my book. especially if it also incorporates superheroes.

if you're curious on how they executed the music video and where their inspiration for it came from, check out motionographer's interview with shynola's chris harding (shynola is the group that created the video for coldplay)


they were sitting, they were sitting in the strawberry swing
every moment was so precious

they were sitting, they were talking in the strawberry swing
everybody was for fighting
wouldn't wanna waste a thing

cold, cold water, bring me round
now my feet won't touch the ground
cold, cold water, what'd ya say?

it's such, it's such a perfect day
it's such a perfect day

i remember we were walking up to strawberry swing
i can't wait 'til the morning
wouldn't wanna change a thing
people moving all the time
inside a perfectly straight line
don't you wanna just curve away?
when it's such, when it's such a perfect day
it's such a perfect day


now the sky could be blue, i don't mind
without you it's a waste of time

now the sky could be blue, i don't mind
without you it's a waste of time

now the sky could be blue, could be grey
without you I'm just miles away

now the sky could be blue, i don't mind
without you it's a waste of time

I love Coldplay, they have the best lyrics. I'm so glad you included it in the post. I read the part you did in bold over and over again. Perfection.
