Chris Martin of Coldplay Covers Paul Simon (WATCH)

During a visit to BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge this week, Chris Martin ,without his Coldplay bandmates, performed a song he said was a big influence on him when he was a kid.

Martin, who’s mom is from Zimbabwe, said he was 10 when he first heard this song while visiting his mother’s homeland.

“I was trying to get the attention of another 10-year-old girl,” Martin said. “There was no texting in those days, but she was doing the Eighties equivalent of not texting me back and I remember this song playing and thinking ‘at least the music is awesome.'”
