I’m pretty late today, and I don’t want to use anything interesting or recommended on a rush job, so here’s Coldplay’s “Christmas Lights” (2010).
Eh, it’s Coldplay.
- Does it mention Christmas by name? Yes, but mostly to talk about how it doesn’t feel like Christmas because this couple had a fight.
- Are there bells in it? No. I don’t think Coldplay does bells.
- Is it jolly? No. I don’t think Coldplay does jolly, either.
Perhaps the most notable thing about this song is it has the longest Wikipedia entry of any song I’ve done so far, one that includes the vital information that the song “was released to very positive reviews.” Actually, the more of it I read, the more hilariously in-depth it becomes. For example:
It was originally thought that “Christmas Lights” would be a song from the band’s fifth studio album Mylo Xyloto, but this was confirmed not to be the case by Coldplay’s official fan-question answer system The Oracle on two separate occasions.
I’m just envisioning some superfan eagerly tuning in to The Oracle (and who has an official fan question answer system?) and doing the Coldplay equivalent of a spit take upon learning that no, “Christmas Lights” would NOT be a song from Mylo Xyloto. I mean, what the FUCK, right?
