How excited am I to see Coldplay tonight? Incredibly crazily can’t sit still excited. This has the potential to be one of the most amazing shows I’ve been to (and I’ve been to a lot). I started liking Coldplay back in Senior year in high school and I vividly remember sitting at my computer in my sister’s room downloading music on Napster (with dial-up!). And yes, my new computer had a CD burner so I immediately put “Yellow” on a CD called “First Mix,” which also included the likes of Dispatch, Smash Mouth, Train, and more.
I’m a big fan of the new Coldplay album, but I really do love everything they have done. My all-time favorite song is probably “Warning Sign.” I obviously knew the song already, but when I heard it while watching The Last Kiss, I literally just sat there with tears streaming down my face. It was right during the time when the ex and I were in the process of seeing each other again after having broken up for a couple months. “When the truth is, I miss you….and I’m tired, I should not have let you go.” There were so many regrets and so much sadness and this song just totally said it all. “So I crawl back into your arms. Yes, I crawl back into your arms.”
Coldplay has songs that fit pretty much every part of my life, which is partly why I love them so much. And also why I’m going to be crying for the entire show. They just do that to me.
And don’t even get me started on the fact that I’m going to Ryan Adams in September. He’s pretty much my fave person in the world. And then there’s Jason Mraz in October and I’m pretty sure he’ll put on an amazing show.
In other music news, I’ve solved my bored at the gym dilemma. If you want music that will keep you seriously energized and entertained, download the new Girl Talk album. I’m not lying when I say it’s the best workout music in the world. AND if you go to their Myspace you can download it for however much you choose to pay. I’m telling you, this is the most fun music ever and it’s making me enjoy working out! I mean, where else can you hear Kanye, Britney, Jay-Z, Michael Jackson, Heart, Ludacris, Radiohead, Donna Summer, and tonnns more all together?? Yeah, that’s what I thought.
Also on my list of new favorite bands is Spiritualized. “Soul on Fire” is an amazing song but all of A&E is fab. “Baby, set my soul on fire. I got two little arms to hold on tight and I wanna take it higher.”
