Dic 31 2009, 15:03 di itravelSo the 00's wasn't generally a great decade for music. Yes, the music industry complains about the lack of CD sales, but honestly, that is due to the fugacious nature of music the past several years. The most popular tracks have more often than not, been about the immediate sales of singles. With iTunes coming to fruition in this decade, it saw the rise of those with little pocket money (and sometimes little music taste either) deciding what the 'top tracks' are. However, with the internet becoming a big source for more independent new music, this saw the rise of several great bands. Call this the 2000's, or the Naught'ies, or whatever you will, but hidden amongst most of the rubbish out there were some brilliant music groups that came into existence, and established themselves well in the past 10 years. Some of the following bands had EP's out previously, but this list is from album releases beginning in 2000. You may agree, or disagree, though more often than not I tend to disagree with most countdowns. …

Dic 18 2008, 6:10 di suikodeeI've always been a big fan of Coldplay, mostly A Rush of Blood to the Head album. Overall the album has this depressing, heart yearning feeling to it. The music video for The Scientist pretty much sums up the feeling of loss (really depressing ending), and no one can eloquently sing about loss than Coldplay with their simple melodies and easy to play piano chords - which got me back into Coldplay after printing out sheet music at work (oh no!). In fact I believe they have more songs about loss than love. For example....
Trouble (fantastic piano part!)
"I never meant to cause you trouble
I never meant to do you wrong
And ah, well if I ever caused you trouble
Oh, no I never meant to do you harm"
The Scientist (just four chords, although plodding but great to play)
"Nobody said it was easy
It's such a shame for us to part
Nobody said it was easy
No one ever said it would be so hard
Oh, take me back to the start"
Warning Sign (moving!)
