“Paradise” by Coldplay – The Song of the Week for 10/3/2011


“Paradise” by Coldplay is slated to be the 2nd single from their upcoming album Mylo Xyloto, set to be released October 24, 2011

Genre: Electronic Rock, R&B

So here’s the thing: I don’t really consider myself a Coldplay “fan”. I end up liking less than half the singles I hear on the radio and I don’t own any of their albums. I have, however, heard just about every Coldplay song ever made. What keeps me from considering myself a fan? I am not sure but I have a lot of respect for the band. They have a huge worldwide following and continue to put out music people dig. They also continue to experiment and expand their sound, which I always think is a good thing.

With all that being said, I absolutely adore this new Coldplay song “Paradise”. I think this is the best Coldplay song I have ever heard. Maybe not as marketable and radio-friendly as past hits like “Yellow”, “Trouble”, “Viva La Vida”, and “Speed Of Sound”, but this song is awesome.

I agree with the choice to release “Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall” as the first single since it is much more marketable but I think “Paradise” blows it out of the water.
