Christmas Lights

Today’s song is Coldplay’s 2010 Christmas hit Christmas Lights. The random fact associated with this tune is that in the video which was shot on London’s South Bank, the words Credo Elvem Etiam Vivere are written across the top of the stage where the band are performing the song. This means “I believe Elvis is still alive”, and it’s linked to the mentions of Elvis in the lyrics of the song:

Like some drunken Elvis singin’
I go singin’ out of tune
Sayin’ how I always loved you, darlin’
And I always will.

I hope you enjoy this piece. There’s more Coldplay here, and if it’s your first time on the site, find out more about the 365 Songs project. For more Christmaciousness, see all of my December songs here.
