Oh brother I can't, I can't get through
I've been trying hard to reach you 'cause I don't know what to do
Oh brother I can't believe it's true
I'm so scared about the future and I wanna talk to you

    I was disappointed when I learnt that the only one Coldplay's song I love is so great because of Kraftwerk, but, after all, even if I love Kraftwerk and don't really like Coldplay, in my opinion they did a great job with this melody, and the video is also beautiful.

    Essa música é muito linda. O que mais me faz amar ela, é o fato de que a letra condiz muito com a situação em que se encontra a minha vida. Obrigado, Coldplay.

    coldplay didn't rip off kraftwerk, they sampled them, with full permission and full composer credits for the song in the album liner notes. this has been common knowledge for years. get with the times

    kraftwerk rip off. approved or not, that's lame. original one is much better.

    Yep, I just learned about the Kraftwerk melody as well.

    So I came here to say that this song, though enjoyable enough, sounds a lot like any shoegaze band, circa 1989, and now I learn that the guitar part was borrowed from, of all people, Kraftwerk. Oh, dear. This does not make Chris Martin and Co. look good, does it?

    I can relate to this song in so many levels, it's not even funny.

    Yep, this is Computer Liebe by Kraftwerk. But they've got the approval to use the melody.

    freaking love this track, one of my favorites off of X&Y although it's so hard to pick a real favorite from it
