i so love this song…from the moment i first saw the music video come on tv one night, i was entranced and couldn’t tear my eyes away. Coldplay is one of my all time favorite bands and they’re slowly starting to nudge The Beatles away from their number 1 spot in my list of top bands. right now they’re still second to The Beatles…might not be for long though; the two have been raging on in battle in my musical heart for almost ten years now lol
anywho! i love this song and i adore the music video because it’s so colorful and impacting, to me at least. Coldplay has always been able to inspire me and i’m pretty sure that if my soul could be personified with music it would be them; their lyrics, their sound, why albums are even done the way they’re done…just, everything
what i love even more about this particular music video is that it’s a character video. as i’m sure i’ve put on here before, i do character songs for my characters that i’ve created, and even, on rare occasion, for characters that were already in existence (as well as characters my friends have made!), well, this is the first time ever that i saw a music video that could properly represent a character of mine.
it’s fitting that the character is Lee, and though i’d love to explain in depth about how this video is just his being on screen, it’d take much too long lol just be sure and take my word! and enjoy the lovely music and video!
so very lovely, i love color splashes that take a different approach and angle to things, as well as being able to tell a story to each person that looks at it.
yes…yes he is lol
saw this pic and loved the original, but if the eye color had been changed it would have been perfect for a character of mine talking about her boyfriend…so i changed the eye color as best as i could to brown lol i wish i could have gotten it darker though, oh well lol
he is a jackass, but a lovable one, and loves doing things with cards, so this just seemed fitting!
edit: and an awesome person redid the color for me without me even having to ask! thank you! possibly colorsplashit.tumblr.com but i’m not sure if it was them or if they were able to find it for me, but either way, thank you!
this picture just seemed too perfect for my page that i had to put it here lol
the only thing i like better than color splash is when you see color splash naturally without having to edit the picture, and that’s exactly what this is! so pretty!
