Coldplay's new X & Y X & Y album came out today. It's very distinctively mellow tunes Coldplayish. I'd like to listen to it more, but I've got Alanis on the brain because I recently got So-called Chaos So-Called Chaos. Right now Alanis is even superseding the supreme No Doubt and Poe on my playlist. The thing that really fascinates me about her is her tendency to change the lyrics of the chorus. I don't know why, but it's like this unwritten rule of music or something that you don't do that, but she does it all the time. Poe's done it a few times, Gwen does it rarely, but I think it makes the song really fun. If I ever write a song I'm going to change the lyrics in the chorus every iteration.
