Just had the pleasure of seeing the second version of Coldplay's song from the Viva la Vida album, "Life in Technicolour". Its part of the following album from Coldplay called "Prospekt's March" (remixes and a few new songs).

The well known song Viva la Vida (it is the second song below) is the 7th title on the album with the same name. But the first song on the Viva la Vida album is called "Life in Technicolour" and is a song I really like a lot.

Coldplay released "Prospekt's March" at the end of November
The first song on this album is called Life in Technicolour II, similar to the first version from the previous album but longer and unlike the first version Coldplay are singing. The videoclip however is just great: the way the blond kid looks at the girl next to him when the music starts, the look on peoples faces, the explosions, hair blowing in the wind, reading '****ing hell' on the lips of the guy filming. The whole Punch and Judy approach is clever, with the devil that was often removed from such shows as it was seen as being inappropriate for children. Coldplay is obviously far worse than the devil in this version in view of the looks from the audience 😉 I'm happy to have purchased and as I have listened to it so many times going to work I've lost count...
