when you get what you want but not what you need

On Sunday, before seeing Atonement, I saw the trailer for a documentary about the Young at Heart Chorus. I cannot wait to see this film! Today I came across this video of the chorus performing Coldplay's "Fix You". Something about their performance nearly makes me weep. Following Hurricane Katrina I listened to this song repeatedly. But this gives the song new significance. This performance is just beautiful; including the sound of the soloist's oxygen tank. I've lost track of how many times I've listened to it today.

Young @ Heart - Fix You

And for fun check out their rendition of The Ramones, "I Wanna Be Sedated". Bam bam bam bam.

I bet Chris Martin wept when he heard/saw that. Wow.
