“Oh, Christmas lights, keep shining on…”
They’ve never been fashionable, but I completely adore Coldplay. Their uplifting chord progressions, Chris Martin‘s voice, the fact that they honestly seem down to earth in spite of being multi-millionaires…great qualities of both their musicianship and their personality. It also assists their case that they’ve thrown together a Christmas single just in time for…well…y’know… – and the adorable video to go with it just lifts the spirits in a way only they know how to do.
What’s there to see? Pretty much the band and a few very pretty European locations – they look European, anyway – and not much else. That’s the charm of it all, though – and when we’re talking charm factor ten for Coldplay, you really can’t go wrong.
