"The Scientist" by Coldplay could be a good song. It's got an all right melody, and the lyrics are solid. But, Chris Martin's voice does not do it for me. However, there are a few covers that manage to pull together tempo and sadness and even though I can't call any of them great, one lyric stands out: "I was just guessing at numbers and figures/Pulling the puzzles apart/Questions of science, science and progress/Do not speak as loud as my heart." Who hasn't wanted something that can't be explained with a formula, and doesn't make sense?
