Coldplay - Viva La Vida


Coldplay é na minha opinião, e acredito que na de muitos, umas das 3 maiores bandas da atualidade. Eles junto com U2, e possivelmente os Stones, formam a triplíce trindade da música.

Coldplay é aquela banda que todos gostam, mas são poucos que são fãs de carteirinha. Ela é como o U2, todos gostam, todos ouvem, mas são poucos que nutrem uma paixão por elas, não são como os fãs de Simple Plan e MCR por exemplo, poucos mas que declaram o seu amor aos quatro ventos.

Posso dizer que estou no meio termo, adoro coldplay, mas eles não me empolgam tanto, apesar de todas as músicas serem de uma qualidade indiscutível.

Viva La Vida é uma excelente música, que reflete a capacidade que essa banda tem de compor, e criar músicas excelentes.

Letra:

I used to rule the world
Seas would rise when I gave the word
Now in the morning I sweep alone
Sweep the streets I used to own
I used to roll the dice
Feel the fear in my enemy's eyes
Listen as the crowd would sing:
"Now the old king is dead! Long live the king!"
One minute I held the key
Next the walls were closed on me
And I discovered that my castles stand
Upon pillars of sand, pillars of sand

I hear Jerusalem bells are ringing
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
Be my mirror my sword and shield
My missionaries in a foreign field
For some reason I can not explain
Once you know there was never, never an honest word
That was when I ruled the world
(Ohhh)

It was the wicked and wild wind
Blew down the doors to let me in.
Shattered windows and the sound of drums
People could not believe what I'd become
Revolutionaries Wait
For my head on a silver plate
Just a puppet on a lonely string
Oh who would ever want to be king?

I hear Jerusalem bells are ringing
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
Be my mirror my sword and shield
My missionaries in a foreign field
For some reason I can not explain
I know Saint Peter will call my name
Never an honest word
And that was when I ruled the world
(Ohhhhh Ohhh Ohhh)

Hear Jerusalem bells are ringings
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
Be my mirror my sword and shield
My missionaries in a foreign field
For some reason I can not explain
I know Saint Peter will call my name
Never an honest word
But that was when I ruled the world
Oooooh Oooooh Oooooh"
