    Coldplay 'Regret' Naming Album Mylo Xyloto



    Rockers Coldplay are starting to regret naming their new album Mylo Xyloto - because their foreign fans can't pronounce the cryptic title.

    The Yellow hitmakers have shied away from defining the meaning of the title ever since its release last October (11), with frontman Chris Martin insisting the group simply "invented two words that you couldn't even Google".

    But the world-famous British band is now beginning to see the pitfalls of selecting such a bizarre name and Martin confesses he's wishing the group went with something more mundane.

    Talking about the success of the record on U.S. breakfast show Good Morning America on Friday (02Mar12), he said, "It's just something that we thought looked really good but everywhere we go around the world people pronounce it in the most crazy ways and we're beginning to regret it now."

    MX is a perfectly fine name.

    It's weird. When they do something common, media will say they're not creative enough, but when they do something unusual, that the media don't get, the media will say that it's just weird. And then when Chris jokes about it, they say he "admits" that they shouldn't have named it that way (suggesting that they were right for calling it weird)!

    This post doesn't make much sense, btw, sorry about that

    They should have named it Major Minus
    But it shouldn't matter how people pronounce it, Chris himself has always said that he wants people to make their own interpretations of their music.
    I can't think of anything interesting for my sig, so this sentence will do.

    Your explanation of all that back and forth confusion makes perfect sense (does THAT make sense ?).

    Yeah. It was kind of a joking remark. But I've no doubt he probably is also a bit like, "Oh, geez, it's just a title, people." too . I mean, it's not the first time an album's had a strange name.

    The relationship between Chris and the media is like that of Sheldon and Leonard from the Big Bang theory; Chris needs a sign to hold up whenever he's being sarcastic becuase the media doesn't get it and takes it seriously
