Livin' life in Technicolor
- Sep 2, 2010
It does sound very familiar! Maybe it's like Violet Hill where they had one part of the lyrics since they started and worked on it after 9 years of leaving it. Only in this case it was the chord scheme and they just needed the correct lyrics to fit inJust so people know what's that about. (Start at 3:35)
I can see where you're coming from. Both Clocks and O are basically a constant scale throughout the entire song so similarities can be drawn even if they are different chords.Yes. Don't know how to explain the Clocks thing, but that's what I feel after listening to it a lot of times.
The fact that you're even relating Sigur Rós to Coldplay is awesome! More people/everyone needs to have heard of Sigur Rós lol"I wanna live life, never be cruel,
I wanna live life, be good to you.
I wanna fly, never come down,
Live my life, have friends around."
Fly On... the more I listen, the more I feel connected with that "I wanna fly, never come down"; when sometimes, it is too heavy, falling down, wings broken, still gether the strength to fly on...the opening piano part is really like some classical music...a self-encouraging statement of Chris:"Let's all fly on, till home, to home, from all the sorrows or regrets or pains...cause that's the innate power of your soul" - also a reminder of the opening part of Sigur Rós's Sæglópur and Flying images of Glósóli MV.
hmm, same flight feelings captured. If put Gravity and O together - a really good pair, and the meaning of Fly On could be felt more prominantly - maybe a progress from Gravity, even there is a difference/gap between "will fly with you" and "can fly with you". This song might be a good company for Chris, hence very personal as he indicated.The fact that you're even relating Sigur Rós to Coldplay is awesome! More people/everyone needs to have heard of Sigur Rós lol
