Today, March 2, three titans of pop/rock celebrate their birthday. Lou Reed is 70 years old, Jon Bon Jovi is 50 and Chris Martin of Coldplay is 35.

Sure, we could sit here all day and debate the socioeconomic undertones of “Clocks” or the storied Americana mythology of “Wanted Dead Or Alive,” though we would rather simply look at all three artists back to back (to back).

Which one is not like the others?

Lou Reed, “Sweet Jane”

Bon Jovi, “It’s My Life”

Coldplay, “Paradise”
