a song a day: day 4.

Day 4.
… My pal Beach tagged me to participate in the ‘a song a day challenge’… seriously, go see his gorgeous photos… son of a beach. Also, he is awesome.

The rules.

Post a song a day for five consecutive days
Post the name of the song and video
Post what the lyrics mean to you (optional)
Nominate two different bloggers each day of the challenge

I have now fully flaked out on the nominating part. As is my custom.

Today’s lesson… Predictability 101: Coldplay.

You knew it was coming. My other predictable choices have already appeared — Morrissey, John Mayer. So of course, you get Coldplay, too. [But tomorrow… well, that will be a surprise…]

I talk about Chris Martin a lot, what with the songwriting and the singing and the general awesomeness (and beautiful arms)…

Chris Martin

… but let’s not overlook Guy Berryman, bass player, photographer, insanely-hot guy. Seriously. Damn… look at him! He is beautiful. Look at those perfect arms (yes, I have a thing for arms… and musicians)…

Guy Berryman

And that face… and that smile. Yum.

Guy Berryman

Okay… I think I’ve recovered. For the moment.

I chose this song because, of course, I love it. But I also picked it for its interactive video — not the one below — that’s the final ‘fans’ cut‘. But if you go to coldplay.com/ink, you can ‘choose your own adventure’. When they released it, I played with it for an embarrassingly long time. [Not as dirty as it sounds.]

Got a tattoo said ‘together thru life’
Carved in your name with my pocket knife
And you wonder when you wake up will it be alright
Feels like there’s something broken inside

All I know
All I know
Is that I’m lost
Whenever you go
All I know
Is that I love you so
So much that it hurts

Got a tattoo and the pain’s alright
Just want a way of keeping you inside

All I know
All I know
Is that I’m lost
In your fire below
All I know
Is that I love you so
So much that it hurts

I see the road begin to climb
I see your stars begin to shine
I see your colours and I’m dying of thirst
All I know
Is that I love you so
So much that it hurts

[The video is lovely, but, seriously, make it your own… coldplay.com/ink]

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy, too. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.
