2008-50: No. 8 - Revolutionaries wait for my head on a silver plate

"Viva La Vida" - Coldplay.

OK, ridicule me if you wish, but here goes..."Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends" was my favourite album of 2008. The title track may have been overplayed to death, but it’s so anthemic and timeless that I’m still glad whenever it comes on the radio. And when that whoa-ho-ho-ho-ho bit comes in, three minutes into the song, it's just one of those moments that make you happy to be alive. And that, after all, is what great music is about.

Or, for the conspiracy theorists who might have heard that song before....
