Well, it had to happen. My number one song got stolen yesterday by Haley in this excellent description of the video for Strawberry Swing. It’s also one of my favorite’s, if not the favorite, from Viva la Vida. Whenever I hear it, I instantly think of summer and how I should be frolicking in a big field of dandelions or swinging on a tire swing. Weird? Maybe. But some songs just scream summer, and this one does that for me.
The video is also just wonderful. Chris Martin in tights and a cape fighting off a giant squirrel! And I’m in love with the thousands of butterflies at the end of the video. It’s just perfect.
