THIS IS WHO WE ARE

This is what we do for the joy of the King,
For His peaceable Kingdom,
For a world in despair.
And this is why we bring any hope we can give,
Any bread from the table,
Any touch of His hand.
This is what we do.
This is where we go.
This is why we sing.
This is how we live.
This is who we are.

Coldplay Video

OK, here's the situation.  I knew COLDPLAY was a popular band, but it's really hard to keep up with all the hot bands.  When you've lived through nearly six decades, you see a lot of bands come and go.

Anyway, when Heidi listed Coldplay as #12 in her "Things I Love" post, and so many commented on her #12 being so great, I felt an obligation to check them out.  I'd actually heard some of their tunes--just hadn't really put a name with them.

I found this remarkable video ("The Scientist") which was new to me, although I'd heard others talking about it. In case you haven't watched it, take a few minutes to do so.  Beautifully (and painstakingly) done. Very haunting and thought-provoking, too.

I really love this band; I'd never seen this video - wow. It was really good, thanks for sharing!

If you think that video is cool, check out Mute Math performing Typical. Not only do they mouth the words backwards, they also play (and destroy) their instruments backwards.
