Square One is the first track on X&Y, Coldplay's 2005 release. It also happens to be one of the best songs off of.
Lyrics: Coldplay's always been a master of smooth and meaningful lyrics, and Square One is no exception. Lost, searching for a purpose, searching for anything....A haunting and gripping song, yes, but wondrous nonetheless. 10/10
Instruments: This song has a very eerie melody, but it fits the lyrics perfectly. Coldplay really shows how far they've come and the directions they've went in the last few years with Square One; you won't find a song like this off of AROBTTH. I love all of Coldplay's songs, but I'm glad Coldplay chose to take a chance with Square One; it wouldn't be the same without the speed and mystical sound effects. 10/10 again.
Vocals: Chris Martin is one of the best singers around, in my opinion. He can go from deep to falsetto with little to no effort. His range of pitches in Square One isn't amazingly diverse, but there's no way it could be called restricted. It's right in the middle, I'd say, and right in the middle works here. 10/10 once more.
30/30 = 10/10.
I may sound like I'm rambling here, and I am giving this song a lot of praise. But Square One is an undeniably excellent song, and if you listen to it, I expect you'll like it, perhaps even love it as much as I do. At 500+ on my Play Count, Square One is my most-listened-to song in iTunes, and the most-listened-to song in the entire family library of songs.
