42. A very famous number: In fact, the answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything, if you believe anything that Douglas Adams writes. (Seriously, it's in Wikipedia.) However, there's another thing that this number is famous for: Being the fourth track off of Coldplay's new album, Viva la Vida.

Some of you may have noticed that my upload site didn't take too kindly to my upload of Coldplay's newest album. So, instead, I'll be uploading good songs from it, one by one here and there, which will hopefully elude the watchful eye of legality.

On that note: 42 is a really cool song - it's actually a 3-part rhapsody, you might say. It starts with a haunting piano ballad with a string backing, suddenly bursting into a really funky guitar jam session, and finally coalescing into a fast, driving and uplifting section of jamming guitars and crazy piano... all to end the last dozen seconds with the original, first section. In my opinion, a masterful piece.
