Boston Coldplay!!!!

^ Appreciate the review Maloo. :)
Everyone's allowed their own opinion, and at least you provided evidence to back up your reasons.
(There are some people who just use reviews to bash for the sake of bashing... :confused:)
Oh, and I loved your closing sentence.

Coldplay Boston Lyrics Improv. Mystery

Ok, this has been really bugging me for awhile now....
I've been (VERY HAPPILY) watching Vids from the AMAZING Boston show, and am soaking up everything Chris said, because a lot of it is extremely funny/clever.

However, I cannot decipher what exactly Chris' saying between 3:44 - 3:56 of God Put A Smile Upon Your Face...
All I can pick out is: "God gave me style and ______ . ___ ____ ____ ____ to Massachuuuuusetts."
Anyone know what he said exactly? :inquisitive:

Sounds to me like "God give me style and give me [either "rest" or "bliss", or something...], God bring me down to Massachusetts."

coldplay boston lyrics mystery

^^^ Yeah, I agree about the 2nd part. But the 1st part ???? ARGH! :confused:

"God gave me style and ____ ____ _____ (3 syllables) ,
God bring me down to Massachuuuuusetts."

Possible words: bliss, rest,
Possible two words: number wits (that's what i hear, but how does that make sense??),

I listened to your vid Mike too, but still cannot tell what Chris' saying.

Probably because I was singing the real words having completely forgotten beforehand that Chris usually changes the lyrics of GPASUYF depending on the venue they're at. :p Sorry 'bout that.

^ hehe, no your singing doesn't make it difficult to hear,
it's you and the 14,999 other people singing that makes it difficult. :cool:
Gah! I must figure this out!! (guess i obsess WAY TOO MUCH about all things Coldplay :p)

Oooh, I listened again and still hear "WITS" or something like that... :confused:
Surely someone can tell what he's saying???

Maybe you're on to something.

"God give me style and give me wits.
God bring me down to Massachuuuuuusetts."

I seriously think you might be right. :)

In my experience at the Garden, as long as you don't have a camera that has a detachable zoom lens, you're ok. Just don't bring an obnoxiously huge camera, and you'll have no trouble.



I don't see why not. I was planning on bringing one too. :cool:

Does anybody know if this thing "No bags/cameras" is really legitimate for Banknorth?
Cuz i'll be extremely upset if I can't take a few pics of the boys...:\

Boston August 4th 2008

I cannot believe it's already been 22 days since the concert!!!!
I wanna go back soooo bad! :bigcry: Back to the start :dozey:

Anyway, just thought I'd finally get to writing about some of the highlights/quotes! Reminiscing material :daisy:
Chris was sooooo quirky that night :laugh3: It was AWESOME!
~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

* During "Clocks" Chris still did the hand over head motion during the "shoot an apple off my head" part.

*"In My Place" Chris says: "Oh it doesn't feel like a Monday to us. Thanks for coming out to see us everybody. Just for tonight we'll pretend we're from Boston and it's Saturday. U2 are playing." Then during Jonny's solo, he says: "Go J, go J, go! Ladies and gentlemen, our best friend Jonny Buckland!" :heart:

*"Viva La Vida" Chris comments: "I think you people are gonna be louder than all of the other places we've played combined. Wow you're an incredible forum."

*"42" Chris played the tune from JAWS since Steven Spielberg was supposed to be in the audience. During Jonny's 2nd riff, he kind of messed up the ending. He forgot the cool part at the end :wacko:

* During "Yes" something happened with Chris' acoustic guitar and so Hoppy ran out to switch it.

*"Fix You" Chris let us sing the chorus and then remarked: "Oh man, I can hear the Irish blood in the water!"

*"God Put A Smile Upon Your Face" Chris sings: "God gave me style and wits, god bring me down to Massachuuuuuuusetts."

*Before beginning "Yellow" Chris says: “It’s about time we said hello to everybody. We want to say hello to everybody, you know? There’s a lot of people for a Monday and we’re incredibly grateful for that. How you doing so far? [cheers] I dunno, I dunno what you’re missing on TV, maybe Home Improvement or a re-run of Seinfeld. Whatever you’re missing on TIVO or whatever, we really do appreciate it. Especially as we’re not even Irish or American and you’re still being nice to us. We appreciate it. Although we do have all the members of U2 on speed-dial, that I can assure you. It’s a close-knit community in the soft rock world. This is ah, this is a great big Monday sing-a-long. I don’t care what you’re missing on TV, you can sing to this.”

*"The Scientist" Guy took pics of the crowd. Chris says: "So this is what it’s like in the back! See uh, we not so pretty up close, we’re not so good when you’re close to us. What can you do? We’re the ultimate radio band, we’re not going on TV. Haha. But anyway, seeing as we’ve come close we might as well sing something in the back. So uh, this is a song uh, this is a song I wrote after a steamy night with Condeleza Rice. Not really, but it sounds good! [laughs in audience, Chris laughs] We had great physical chemistry but the political just wasn’t there. So you have to make these things up. Anyways, this is called 'The Scientist'"

*"Death Will Never Conquer" Chris says: "Now you may ask the question 'why does every singer from England think they can play the harmonica?' Well the answer is, we can't! And really, it's an affetation. It's an attempt to be like Mick Jagger, an attempt to be like Bob Dylan, and it really doesn't work. So I apologize for that. The one benefit it does have is uh, well it doesn't really have a benefit, shit, fuck that! I didn't really think that through. There's no benefit, it doesn't look good, doesn't sound good, doesn't feel good, it's just a waste of everyone's time and money. However, we do have more cards up our sleeve than just a singer who plays harmonica. We have one of the most talented drummers in the history of the world. [crowd cheers] His name is Will. He's like a Swiss army knife. He can do anything, anything you ask. He can fix cars, he can drink, he can taste wine, he can seduce [laughs]. Forget that. Don't put that on the Internet for goodness sake! And the main thing he can do is sing beautiful songs before we go off and do the whole Encore shebang. You know how the encore thing works, we're gonna leave, we're gonna go come back, we're gonna come back, it's gonna be great, it's gonna be magical. This is Will, he's gonna sing to you. I'll shut the fuck up! We'll see you in a minute!"

*Beginning of "Death and All His Friends" Chris says: "I didn't want to do this because it's cheesy, but we're great fans of his so he's probably left the building by now anyway to get into his helicopter. We'd like to dedicate this to Tom Brady your quarterback and we're big fans of his and we're very honoured he came to the show. As it is, all of you came to the show and I hope to goodness it was worth it and uh, what more could you have done on a Monday? Anyway, we appreciate it. We're going to Japan tomorrow morning and we're going to miss you. And thank you so much for coming in. OK, that's it. This is the last song, what can we do man? [laughs]
All winter, we got married, OH fuck it! [laughs]"

"Thank you so much everybody, thanks to our crew, thanks to...(couldn't hear what he said there), and the people of Boston for coming out to see us. Thanks a lot and have a good night!" :nice:

When the boys were bowing, Jonny kept staring at my sign!
Guy stayed while the others left and took a pic of the crowd.
