For Some Reason I Can't Explain

Don't know if you've been following the Satriani / Coldplay controversy or not. Satriani is accusing Coldplay of infringing on his righteous tunage. Coldplay says, "nah, just coincidence." I typically shrug at these lawsuits because music is so derivative that there's bound to be similar chord structures and melodies from time to time. I doubt Coldplay nefariously felt they needed to steal from Joe to get ahead - um, they're already ahead - but then I watched this video that Billboard.com posted:

Uncanny really, and kinda cool. Who knows. I think Viva La Vida is a great song and this will in no way diminish my enjoyment of it. Can't we all just get along?
