Craig Finn song: "Took a car downtown/where the lost boys meet/took a car downtown/and took what they offered me." Things slow down and get acoustic so the hot young couple at the center of the video can make out. Then the video explodes again -- literally -- as they watch fireworks and maybe vandalize a car (it's hard to tell). It's all a bit too silly and overly earnest, but in a very inoffensive way (like Coldplay themselves).
For all their yearning ballads and poetic imagery, it turns out that Coldplay just wants to dance.
"Charlie Brown" can be found on the U.K. band's latest record, "Mylo Xolato."
Watch the video, and grade it at the top of the story.
