Coldplay is very hit-and-miss with me. Sometimes I’ll love it, like “Viva la Vida”—a song I play often and eventually became the theme song for my guitar class one year.
But other times I’ll be so sick of a song. “Paradise”, for instance, was just plain irritating to me.
“Magic” is one in the former category.
Sure, it’s a little repetitive at times, but sometimes that’s what you need to listen to once in a while. It’s calming, it’s something to listen to before I go to sleep or to just relax.
It reminds me of “Love is Easy” by McFly, because—as I pointed out back then too—love, the emotion is easy. It’s situation and circumstance that makes it complicated. And “Magic” is a simple song. A simple song about love.
