Yes but i can't hear the part from Another's Arms....
That's because you sample one note (or, I think, two notes in this case) and you play them via the sampler like a musical instrument. Observe how in the beginning of the riff in another's arms the voice of the lady is a little off. That's cause it was transposed in the sampler.

This here is not for Coldplay, but you'll get the idea.

I actually really like this. Love the woman singing and Chris' lower register. Haven't quite decided how I feel about the effects, the kind of radar thing but I think that's because I'm so unused to Coldplay adding in 'weird' things :laugh3: Oooh and the guitar at the end is excellent!

I'm sorry, I didn't realize this song was the supposed highlights of all GS tracks after I've watched the live NBC. Brilliant, just brilliant. I came back with love for Another's Arms, I think it is the best song they ever pulled of GS.

The first time I listened to the song, I guess it became one of my least favorite song on GS. I mean I like it but not as much as I like AFSOS, Magic and AIMH a lot more. Everyone has different taste of music so I know that many ppl love this song too :)

I mean the lyrics is somewhat naked.

Like you're body on my body.

that's naked to my knowledge :p
I don't know. Who's watching TV naked? Then again, ‘late night watching TV’ so there could be that sort of TV programme on. :)

Maybe it is :) Anyway, I think Chris was thinking about a couple who watch TV together, cuddled up on a peaceful night rather than doing something racy :)

Yeah thats what I thought too, I think he defines 'youre body on my body' thing meaning that two people are good for each other :) but at some point if you are thinking way too far, that can be about something dirty really :p

I really want an instrumental version but with the haunting lady voice (I tried to do it, but it's really hard to me!) :confused:

All another's arms need is: Christopher Martin singing and playing the piano. I mean the piano chords of this song are amazing and so underrated.

And I forget Jonny's AWESOME solo on this song and AWESOME notes playing AFTER THE SOLO! WHAT A COMBINATION JONNY YOU ARE ROCKING!
