2008-50: No. 18 - You thought you might be a ghost

"42" - Coldplay.

First (and, clue, not the last) song in my chart from possibly my favourite album of the year. I know a lot of people don't like them - and I went through that phase myself - but I just thought "Viva La Vida" is a great album, and they won't make a better one.

Three-part epic "42" starts off in a slow and bleak way, but then halfway through it erupts into something quite anthemic and joyful, before retreating back to where it started.

The sound of a band in their prime.
