Coldplay's "Fix You"?
1. The song is kind of a drone deal utilizing maybe 2 or 3 chords total. CHECK
2. The vocal is male, predominant, and the singer has a very high tenor range. CHECK
3. I think I heard some saxophone. Maybe playing in a chorus type deal. NOPE
4. As I mentioned, only a couple of chords are used and they stay on the same chord for the entire verse except for a chord change at the very end ... this is the unusual part. CHECK
5. I don't recall hearing any percussion, although there may have been some. If so, it was not dominant at all. It's a dramatic, semi-slow tune. Love songish. CHECK
6. The singer's accent could have been British, but it could also be one of those Americans who try to sound British because it's cool. The "R"s were pronounced "Ah"s. CHECK
7. I reckon that the version I heard was probably 4 or 5 minutes long. CHECK: 4:55
8. The meter is slow. Dramatic. CHECK
9. From what I could ascertain, there might have been strings in the background. CHECK
10. As I mentioned, I couldn't hear the lyrics, but the verse/vocal went "da da da daaaaa ... dada dada dada da daaaaa" ... like that. Assuming the thing was in D Major, the primary melody was "G F# D E ..... DD EE DD G A". The main theme was that first part ... the "G F# D E". It sounded like the lyrics in the verses repeated themselves over and over again. The word, "heart" may have been used several times. ???
