1. Viva la Vida - Coldplay

This was a massive commercial hit, but who cares? I love its sad yet uplifting momentum. When you do what I do every day, throwing 500 things against the wall and hoping one sticks, canned hope in the form of a very catchy tune goes a long way.

2. Time to Pretend - MGMT

My playlist Paul Lewis, classical pianist

1. Die Sch?ne M?llerin - Schubert

Schubert manages to convey the inner meaning of the text in music. He paces the emotional journey of the miller boy to perfection.

2. Symphony No 4 - Beethoven

The first Beethoven symphony I got to know, and still one of the freshest pieces of music I've heard.
