Coldplay - 'Charlie Brown'

It's actually worse than the Peanuts theme

You can’t call a song ‘Charlie Brown’ and make it worse than the Peanuts theme. I don’t care if you’re Chris Martin. I don’t care if you’re a member of your very own Coldplay gym, or if you recorded it in a church, or if your wife’s doing a recipe book especially for vegans who teach Bikram yoga to monks. If you call a song ‘Charlie Brown’ and it sounds this half-arsed you are officially Out Of The Club.
