Coldplay - Higher Power

There is something about this song that's bugging me. It's not that they've gone back to the eighties for their sound. Everyone is doing that at the moment. It's because I can't work out when imitation stops being flattery and becomes just a wee bit too cheeky for its own good. 'Higher Power' bears more than a passing resemblance to 'The Boys of Summer' by Don Henley. In fact, it rips the fucking bones out of it, puts a Coldplay suit over the top, and then parades it around as new material. I quite like it, but facts are facts.

Homework #1: Don Henley - The Boys of Summer /
