Higher Power – Coldplay on Music of the Spheres

  1. This was an excellent musical choice for how it was used in Black Widow.
  2. Much like the song, I woke up, sat bolt upright in bed, and started singing this. Incredibly catchy.
  3. Some lovely Novo Amor, but tempered by the other artists, so it doesn’t immediately crush you with The Sadness.
  4. “Don’t you want to see your sister again? Her life’s a wreck, but she was cool back then.” – sent to my sister, thanks to the “share lyrics” thing in Music.
  5. I think Hayden Calnin is the most lyrically interesting artist I’m listening to at the moment. Good stuff!
  6. Probably my single favorite new one this month; I can’t figure out what song it’s making me nostalgic for, but it’s definitely doing it.
  7. Very cinematic in feeling; is there a reverse “what song is in this show?” site so I can look up what shows wind up using this song?
