Colplay’s possible futures: new album tracklist

    The band that bears the unique distinction of making Travis sound like the Melvins, Coldplay has a new full-length, tentatively titled Viva La Vida, due out on June 16 in the UK and June 17 in the US.

     

    Since we’ve got naught to go on but the tracklist to go on at this point, we thought we’d indulge in a little intuitive hocus pocus by looking into our Britpop crystal ball and imagining what the lyrics to some of these tracks might be.

     

    Life in Technicolor

    "Life in technicolor, it’s oh so very hard, that’s why I’m so blue"

     

    Cemeteries of London

    "Cemeteries of London leave me so blue, when I walk around them I get dirt on my shoes"

     

    Lost!

    "It’s my favorite show–but they won’t let me make a cameo, and that’s why I’m so blue"

     

    42

    "In 11 years I’ll be 42. Then I’m gonna be really blue."

     

    Oh, we can’t go on, it’s just too sad and poignant. Cue the twinkly piano riff…
