Sentenced - May Today Become The Day.

Its from their last album, The Funeral Album. "“There will not be a reunion, comeback or any other pathetic soap opera-esque circus"says guitarist Sami Lopakka in the album notes.

No, no, it's called 'sampling'... I use it in my music composition coursework all the time ;)

FWIW, I'm extremely aware of the term "sampling", but am not up on the latest legalese. It used to be that less than a 2 second sample was OK. I don't know what's currently acceptable though. That's up to the lawyers.

Just for grins, find a copy of the Kraftwerk song "Computer Love" and listen to the first 10-15 seconds of it, then listen to that Coldplay song and give me your opinion. I'd be interested to hear it. This really does seem like a blatant ripoff to me, but hey, I'm just an old fart.

Perhaps not right now, but just a few hours ago, I heard my choir (unfortunately I couldn't make it to all the rehearsals), perform Handel's Coronation Anthems with the Yale Glee Club, who happen to be on a world tour at the moment. They were great to party with, too.

Children Of Bodom, Tokyo Warhearts. A live recording from Club Citta in Tokyo, 1999. Music is studio-quality, with the added feeling of a live-recording and the audience and all.

Current song, Downfall 8)

I have to check out that Kraftwerk/Coldplay thing if i get bored tomorrow(very likely), just out of interest.

Reference to said 'sample' (few paragraphs from bottom). I think it's more tribute than rip-off. It's just a nine-note refrain, after all, (BTW it doesn't come in until after a minute, if you're listening to it,) it's just taken out and used to develop another song. Nothing really wrong in it as far as I'm concerned...

Still, Speed of Sound was beaten by an irritating frog on the singles charts over here. Take that Chris Martin![/tangent]

Time to open up Winamp and see which random track it gives me:
They Might Be Giants - Birdhouse in Your Soul

It's still <2 seconds...but technically Coldplay didn't sample the phonograph recording, just the musical idea itself, so that'd fall under the publishing company's jurisdiction, not the record label. Stupid music industry :roll: .

I've just heard the single, but is it just me or does that sound like a U2 ripoff? I'll see how the rest of the album sounds.

Apocalyptica - Cohkka. From the Reflections album. Great music, they started out by playing Metallica on Cellos wich sounded surprisingly good, the latest albums are their own songs and they still play on three Cellos with visiting artist playing violin, trumpet and piano to name a few instruments. I would think both fans of classical and heavy music would like this, i know i do :D
