I had a really sweet morning… I’ve been filling in on the AM shift at mvy these past three days. It’s very tiring to get up at 4:30ish, but loads of fun to have all sorts of features to do…plus the news every half hour and of course, the large number of listeners. As I got into my car, a mix CD in the player started right at the beginning of “Strawberry Swing” from Coldplay’s Viva La Vida. This is one of my favorite tracks on the album, and it had the perfect tone for driving down the dark, deserted road. As the song played, I saw a man on his bicycle…the same man I saw at the same time the morning before, passing me at the EXACT same place (one of those deja vu moments that makes your eyes widen). Then I saw the moon, glowing orange through the trees. As I drove over the bridge to Vineyard Haven, I watched the (almost full) orange moon slowly dip down behind the tree line, with “Strawberry Swing” complimenting the scene beautifully.
After my shift, I checked out Coldplay’s video for the tune…WOW! This is definitely one of the most creative and most beautifully done videos I’ve seen in a while. I wish I could embed it right into my post, but believe me when I say it’s worth clicking the link below to check it out.
