Coldplay Might Have Have Ripped Someone Off


So has photo-allergic Chris Martin been snarling around with known plagarist Avril Lavigne and getting ideas? Andrew Hoepfner is the frontman for Brooklyn-based indie band The Creaky Boards. He posted this video on YouTube claiming that Coldplay appears to have stolen the melody for their new single “Vida La Vida” from their song (which is seriously called) “The Songs I Didn’t Write.” What a frightening coincidence!

In the video, Hoepfner juxtaposes the two songs with subtitles explaining that the band thought Chris Martin was in the audience when they performed the ditty at the CMJ Music Festival in October of 2007.

“We were flattered when we thought we spotted Chris Martin in the crowd
that night. He seemed pretty into it! …Maybe TOO into it,” Hoepfner wrote. Blame Gwyneth!

A rep for Coldplay claims that the band cut a demo for “Vida La Vida” in March of 2007 and that Martin was recording in London in October so he couldn’t have been at the CMJ Festival.

I’m not kidding. Gwyneth Paltrow’s fingerprints are all over this mess. She wants to keep that Coldplay money funneling in. She put on her husband wig, got her tape recorder and took in a Creaky Boards show. Didn’t she dress up as a man in Shakespeare in Love and win an Oscar for her drag king schtick? Right.
