…and as such all the Christmas songs come out to be played ad nauseam at supermarkets across the land. This year, Coldplay have tried to join the pantheon of such songs, possibly spurred on by comments by Kanye West declaring them ‘more talented than The Beatles’. So following on from John Lennon and Paul McCartney, Coldplay have put out their own Christmas song ‘Christmas Lights’.
Now I don’t actively hate Coldplay, but this is poor. The video is quite nice, though. And you have to appreciate the irony of the line “When you’re still waiting for the snow to fall, doesn’t really feel like Christmas at all” when Britain is experiencing record snowfall.
