[pullquote quote="'Viva La Vida' is our 'Unforgettable Fire.' "] “U2 once said they were reapplying for the job as the best band in the world. On ‘Viva La Vida…’ we feel like we’re just reapplying to be a band again…I always view our albums in terms of U2 albums. ‘Viva La Vida’ is our ‘Unforgettable Fire’ in that it’s less straightforward, more oblique. It’s about sex and death and love and fear and travel and illness. There’s light and there’s dark.”

“I always dream about other musicians. And with U2 or Radiohead it’s always, ‘Hey, how are you doing?’ And they are never interested in hanging out with us. It’s a permanent feeling of being at school and the bigger boys don’t want to play with you.”-Chris Martin

“Mysterious Ways”-U2
