“Here’s an Ode, ah, to deodorant, It’s my thing, ah it’s my favourite hygiene
It keeps me through the day. Another ode, ah to deodorant.
It’s my thing, ah it’s my favourite hygiene, It’s the confidence I need”
‘Ode To Deodorant’ was the first song performed by Coldplay or otherwise known as ‘The Coldplay’ at the time, and was released in 1998 on a demo cassette for concert promoters. Who knew Chris had such a fetish for hygiene products? In an interview in 2003, Will Champion, Drummer of the band credited the song as having a ‘Good ending and good bass line, but it was a crappy song’. I think, even with the crappy lyrics this song still kicks butt. Or, armpits.
