a slight falter

i'm super super into that coldplay song "talk" that sounds like "computer love" by kraftwerk. who can resist whiny alternative brit rock that harkens genius old german electronic music. seriously. bittersweet obsession.

i had a really strange "is this song good coldplay, bad radiohead or mediocre U2" radio-listening moment the other day. i wish you had been there to clear it up for me since the dj was no help.

ok. that comment looks wrong. i meant that radiohead, at their worst (which isn't often), sound like coldplay at their best (another rarity) and for the first time, i heard the U2 influence and was confused.

i can totally understand all of that..unfortunately, i don't think i would have been any help...but i'm willing to bet the song you heard was either coldplay or U2 because another rarity is hearing radiohead on commercial radio.

I used to like that one song that Coldplay did. I can't tell you which song it was at this point, because all Coldplay songs use the same formula.

Radiohead used to cop U2 a *lot*. The Bends is the best U2 album ever.

i really don't like coldplay. this song in particular though is amazing because it's KRAFTWERK! set to WHINY BRITISH ALTERNATIVE ROCK!

Am I a bad person for not liking Coldplay, Radiohead or U2?

I like Kraftwerk though.

There are some really strange postings on this post. Surely, if people wanted information on ColdPlay and ColdPlaygle, they would visit a site such as and get all the info on
