My iPod #194: Coldplay – Clocks

What a day it has been. Two words. Anchorman 2. A must-watch. See it as soon as you can. One of the best movies out this year. Seriously, you guys. No more can be said on fantastically funny and bizarre this film is.

Today’s song is “Clocks” by Coldplay, the third single from the group’s second album “A Rush of Blood to the Head”. It almost didn’t make it onto the album due to time restraints and could have been released on “X&Y“, but they managed to record it very quickly and it now stands the test of time as track number five on their 2002 release.

This contains a notable piano melody which repeats throughout most of the song. You have heard it before. I must have heard it in an advertisement before I knew what the song was called or who performed it. If you didn’t know where it came from, you know now.
