Nice Earworm

Got reacquainted with Coldplay's Paradise when I recently saw the trailer for The Life of Pi; the instrumental version is just stunning to me and curiously uplifting, especially beginning at the :35 mark in the video above. That part sounds like an aural sunburst and it's repeated throughout the song in between the piano segments. Paradise has inspired a number of remixes, especially this striking African version called Peponi performed by The Piano Guys. And the original vocal version of Paradise is also great to listen to, but the instrumental stand alone and almost sounds like a different song. Either way, it's a soaring and moving piece of music.
