Rex came to Geo and I about doing an acoustic version of Coldplay's Viva la Vida and I was totally into it because that's one Coldplay song I really like. I thought it would be interesting to hear it slower and sung by a woman. Rex and I joke that we will only do acoustic collabs and so far we're sticking to that. smiley

Me not liking coldplay...and only hearing this song pass by on the radio once or twice makes me not now the original that well but I've heard this take a couple of times now.. and I like it a lot.. Actually like the lyrics too.. maybe I should listen more to coldplay.. smiley

The backings are so gentle and well performed...with carla's vocals so upfront makes this an excellent song that should be performed live.. and I bet coldplay will be proud.. just like I am..

Love your voice a lot Carla but you know that.. Hugs love

Good job all smiley

Thanks from all of us for all the sweet comments! I have always thought a few of Coldplay's songs were cool but I'm not totally into them. This is one of the songs
which I really liked, mainly for the lyrics, which I think are brilliant.

A unique take on a standard Coldplay tune. Like how the voice is right out there in front.
Great creativity on this track.

I'm not just saying this, but as the song played on, I got deeper and deeper into it. This rendition reminds me of something Tuck and Patti would do. In fact if they heard this, they'd probably record it themselves. Bravo on one fabulous performance.

Oh, thank you so much, Peter! That's a compliment I, at least, consider high praise. I hope Geo and Rex are as familiar with their music as I am and will realize it as well! smiley
