Martin Regrets Giving Coldplay’s “Best Song Ever” to Natalie Imbruglia

    Coldplay fans wishing to hear what frontman Chris Martin calls the band’s "best song ever" will have to look on a Natalie Imbruglia album to find it. Martin, who spent time collaborating with Imbruglia for her forthcoming Come to Life. Though Martin failed to mention the exact name of the song, he offered this statement of regret: "A bit annoyingly we’ve given her the best Coldplay song of all time, but because we’re off-cycle we can’t do it ourselves. Half of me wishes we still had it." Martin did go on to say that Imbruglia does do a fine job on the track. Perhaps, though, he should have taken a cue from Bruce Springsteen. When Joey Ramone asked him to write a song for his band, Springsteen came up with "Hungry Heart" and liked it so much he kept it for himself. [Contact Music]
