This week, we are looking at the music of Coldplay on the 5 o'clock Shadow.

Their new album is topping the charts all around the globe, so I thought we'd look at some of the best covers we have here at 88NINE.

A few months back, I received a CD in the mail from Chipotle.  (yes the burrito restaurant)

This CD told the story of Willie Nelson's work with our nation's small farmers thought Farm Aid and other charity work.  He teamed up with Chipotle Records to cover Coldplay's "The Scientist". They commissioned the song to emphasize the importance of developing sustainable food systems. All proceeds from both benefit the Chipotle Cultivate Foundation, dedicated to creating a sustainable, healthful and equitable food future.  



Cool cover, for a good cause.

Here is the original...
