As I've told you before, Matt got me hooked on Coldplay when we were first dating. Well, shortly before our wedding, I had a Vitamin String Quartet Pandora channel where I found some of our ceremony music, and one day I heard a band called Old School Freight Train that was playing a bluegrass version of "Yellow." Well, I loved their cover, but then in the hubbub of everything else that was going on, I totally forgot about it.
For some reason it popped into my head the other day, so I went onto iTunes to see if they had covered any more Coldplay songs. Turns out there was a whole album, "Pickin' on Coldplay," where they covered several songs from Coldplay's "Parachutes" and "Rush of Blood to the Head" albums. Which I promptly bought.
And then I figured I needed to share this, in case anyone else is a fan of bluegrass. Or Coldplay. Or music in general. But "In My Place" was the only one that I could find of a full song that wasn't interrupted by weird things. So click here to preview all the songs. My favorites are "Yellow," "The Scientist" and "Sparks." :)
Do you like music covers, or do you prefer to stick to the originals?
