12. Every Teardrop is a Waterfall (6/28 votes, 21.43%)

Bjork will be pleased as we finally lose the lead single from Mylo Xyloto, leaving Paradise as the last post-2010 song standing, we have certainly been rather brutal with them thus far. Every Teardrop is a Waterfall proved to be, like a lot of their songs this decade, a slow burner but turned into quite a long lasting hit for them. The title and the melody were both based on a sample from Peter Allen's I Got to Rio that Chris Martin first heard in the film, Biutiful (which was sampled in Ritmo de la Noche by Chocolate, which was then covered later by The Sacados, so complex but Allen is credited as a writer no plagiarism x) and full of rather cute, arty little sayings like 'I'd rather be a comma than a full stop', me as an 18 year old Creative Writing first year undergraduate thought it was so deep and beautifully written at the time, now I'm not so sure kink.gif but it's still lovely and the whole song captures the explosively colourful, uplifting, electronic sound they were going for on the album perfectly and is still a really joyous listen.

I still really like Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall so it's a shame to see that one go. Still going for Violet Hill.

I do hope 'Paradise' survives at least one more round, their post-VLV output hasn't been that much worse than the earlier stuff for none of them to make the top 10!

finally Ritmo de la Noche is out, should have been the first out, their worst thing ever

voting now for Speed of Sound, mediocre track with Coldplay abandoning the sound of the first 2 albums and pretending to be U2, which they are not

This is going much better now! Now for Paradise to go, it's ok but both extremely overrated and overplayed.

Rank:
In My Place
Fix You
Yellow
The Scientist
Violet Hill
Clocks
Talk
Viva la Vida
Speed of Sound
Trouble






...
Paradise

I love it at the time but think Talk is significantly the weakest left, aged badly for me.
