Day Seven of My Week with Coldplay - The Hardest Part

Day Seven of My Week with Coldplay, and for my final choice its "The Hardest Part".

The Hardest Part was released in 2006. It was the third single from their third album X&Y released the year before, 2005. Fix You was another single from this album, which I have also chosen this week.

The Hardest Part was a radio only song, so no chart position for this one. That doesn't reflect how good this song is, so don't be put off!

This video is brilliant. Its shot as if the band (Chris with some dodgy hair) are singing live as an elderly lady dances with a young guy, being flung around quite shockingly - just like this year's BGT act incidentally!! the crowd look on in a mix of horror and applause!! Brill.

The song itself is very piano based, with guitars and low drumming too. Its quite slow paced - more ballad-esque than pop. Chris, as always, sounds great but back to his melancholy ways again with this one.

This track has been likened to REM and you can hear that in its style and music. No bad thing really. No big notes, just a lovely pop record with a bit of rock style.

So there we have it. My last choice of My Week with Coldplay. Go take a listen, and let me know what you think.

Pop back tomorrow when I decide which of my seven are in the top spot or for more of my music, check out my page by clicking here. Happy listening :)
