Well, it worked for me with Paradise. Paradise was associated to a time of my life that I regret, and when I heard it the first time after I had heard it on the radio back then it was quite a blow and nearly brought tears into my eyes. But now I have listened to it so often (because it is on my Coldplay playlist) that it has become quite detached from that memory.

How many plays are we talking about here? hehe Cuz I played Always in my head 300+ times and it still makes me sad 80% of the time hehe

I don't know, but I'd say probably 100+ times. Doesn't mean I don't remember the sad memory connected to it any more, but I don't get a heavy emotional reaction when I hear Paradise now, as opposed to when I had rarely heard it.

Yeah if 300+ plays did not do it I dont think any more will make a difference hehe I actually for the most part stopped listening to GS when AHFOD came out. I absolutely adore GS, but I know that whenever I decide to play it its because I am melancholic so I am conflicted there: I like it because its so cathartic to help with certain emotions, but i dont like to feel those certain emotions hehe

Kinda reminds me the reaction Chris had when Lowe played Fly On during their interview back then. How he got so teary eyed...I dont think he´s ever gonna play that song again tbh (I hope I am wrong). Very lucky the few people who got to see them live during the GS dates!

You are wrong, as a matter of fact - they played it at the acoustic concert in LA some weeks ago ! :)

The one for Paris? If thats the one you allude to, it may very well be the exception to the rule as I dont think it will make it to the live shows, but this is one instance in which I´d love to be wrong :D

i think will is the most encouraging one actually. since about viva, i have noticed most times when chris is in trouble or need help, he turns to will.

there was a video from viva era. they played around the world before starting the tour in england and the first show they played, chris almost stops yellow and runs to talk to will. there was an interview with chris later during mylo and he said that there was no audience noise when they started yellow and he felt like running off the stage. and will calmed him down. in the video chris made the audience sing the outro to yellow over and over to "get his confidence up". i still remember that well because it showed just how the band worked.
They definitely let Will make the decisions. I don't think there would be much of a band if Will wasn't in it. He's def. the rock of the band
