I don’t consider myself a music snob but I’m probably a music snob. The first time I heard Coldplay’s “Yellow” I thought the song was ridiculous. I thought it was silly and simple and well, dumb. There was all that but there was also something else. The more I heard the song – which was often because it was everywhere – the more my disdain for the song started to slip away. No matter what I did I couldn’t stop myself from enjoying the song. In an act of total surrender I eventually bought the album. Maybe it was intuition but damn, that first Coldplay album is good. And I say that even as a music snob.
