Coldplay – Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall
Coldplay recently released a music video for their recent single Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall. The music video, which features the band, also used a stop-motion technique of gravity and the band. The clip was designed in a very colorful way, similar to the single’s artwork.
Sounds familiar? Well, it’s inevitable to compare it to Ritmo de la Noche from Mystic/The Sacados  because the riff actually belongs to Peter Allen and Adrienne Anderson’s I Go to Rio [MV]. And before you accuse Coldplay of stealing the riff, a spokesman for the band denied accusations of plagarism and stated the following:
“Allen and Anderson are credited as writers on Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall. Chris was inspired to write the song after watching the film Biutiful by Alejandro González Iñárritu. In the film, there is a nightclub scene in which a track (Ritmo de la Noche) is playing in the background, based on I Go to Rio.”
