This Coldplay song is fast, rhythmic, and has that wow-factor! Once you get it under your fingers it makes you feel like the master of your instrument, moving all over the place flipping levers (or pedals) and crossing your hands over each other. It’s a great one to play in between your other pieces because it has such a strong, different atmosphere and makes everyone sit up and listen.
