Categorised in: Sermons. I have the sort of brain that is bad at geography and navigation but which seems to have a odd talent for retaining reams of song lyrics as long as there is a tune attached. This song Viva La Vida, was written by Coldplay. The title comes from a painting by Frida Kahlo, painted just before she died after years of agony and chronic pain. The position of leader is a transitory one — always. Leaders, presidents and Kings in particular are always vulnerable, especially in this day and age when we see violence and attempted revolution in the global news on an almost daily basis.

This song is one of the first six songs that I bought with my own money. While I have been interested in music since… I was 8, I never actively pursued the discovery of more songs that I liked until Anyway, a few years ago, was when I started actively writing down the names of songs that I liked and last year was when I first set up my iTunes account to get the music I liked. Well, I think they were encouraged by my semi- sudden interest in music…. Anyway, I found that this song was very motivational for me, is nice to listen to, has interesting lyrics, and a good message. So, yes. However, while they do approve of my music choice, my father in particular has found a majority of my choices in music depressing, while I find the songs comforting.
