“Charlie Brown” (Video)

    “Charlie Brown” is the third single to be lifted from Coldplay’s Mylo Xyloto, and it follows in the breezy footsteps of the prior “Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall.” Anyone who prefers Chris Martin’s band in bittersweet “Yellow” mode isn’t going to find what they’re looking for here—this is the kind of bombastic pop that feels specifically tailored for gigantic stadium and arena audiences. The video features the band playing at the most sanitized rave you’ll ever see in your life, complete with lasers, glow sticks, face paint and a few make-out sessions. Martin jumps up and down like a wild-eyed bobblehead doll for most of it, perhaps in an attempt to relive his pre-Gwynnie youth. Check it out in the clip below.
