You may recall that I banged on and on about that previous release and how the video was the perfect match for the song. Well, I’m not sure if we’re to get a ‘proper’ video to accompany this track, but meantime we’ll have to make do with a rather moody and arty mugshot of the band!
‘Read Me Wrong’ takes a minute or two to ‘warm up’ and perhaps doesn’t reach the intensity of ‘Last Night,’ but it’s a real slow-burner and still carries a memorable hook. For three of the four minutes however, it kind of oozes an air of self-pity, verging on depression before kicking a little harder for the final quarter.
But hey! If Coldplay can make a living out of it …….!
(I still predict big things for BLUE SUNDAY … it’s very early days. You wait and see if I’m wrong!)
