Music Monday - Viva la Vida

I downloaded Coldplay's (DRM-free) album from Amazon last week, and love it a lot. It's the best thing they've done since ... I dunno. A long time. So here's the video for "Viva la Vida" which is not only a catchy, upbeat song that I appreciate more and more when I hear it, but also a visually arresting video. Enjoy!

More Music Monday

This is so quirky that I know I'd lose track of it if I left it for next week, so I post it now. "Ne Me Quitte Pas" (Don't Go Away From Me) by Jacques Brel. The lyrics are simply heartbreaking. Don't listen to this song if there's someone you're missing. Also - what's going on while Brel is singing? He breaks out into an impossible sweat!
