No. The best video they ever had was Violet Hill, or Lovers In Japan. The Paradise video was funny, but so non-Coldplay, too light-hearted to be meaningful, and did not match the dreamy feel of the song at all. Charlie Brown was terrible! The camera was so all over the place I'm not sure Chris was in it, and I couldn't care less about two people falling in love. I wanted to see the boys bounce around with glowing instruments, which was there, but it was so quick I couldn't enjoy anything.Is it just me or have Coldplay videos suddenly surged up after MX era?
On the other hand, they managed to give me just that sentiment of a movie like Crouching Tiger/ Hidden Dragon (did you guys see the dragon in the videoclip as well?!), House Of Flying Daggers, Kill Bill, Kung PoW!, Drunken Master, etc...
I enjoyed the scenery and theme. And still love the song
First of all I've live in America practically all my life and where I live the only Coldplay songs I've heard on the radio is speed of sound Viva la Vida and sometimes paradise. They themselves have said that they have never been a singles band, especially in America. And for me I'm glad about that, because do know what type of songs that get popular in the states and do extremely well are club songs, with few exceptions like Gotye, and Adele, which I am extremely proud of those two because those two artist shows that true talent can really shine through if people just listen and take note. I actually think that Coldplay really blew up in this era. I guess because for me this is the era where I became a colplayer, before this era I was like yeah I like Viva la Vida, the scientist, etc. I was like I think that their okay, a good band not great, nothing special. But as soon as I heard paradise, my mind just switched and I know many coldplay fans hate that song, but for me it is brilliant! It was like something as simple as the word paradise, where everyone has their own paradise just resonated with me. It was so beautiful and so relate-able, which takes me back to a quote where Chris said that sometimes it just takes one song for that person to come around and say yes I finally get it and for me paradise is that one song. So this era for me is the equivalent to the Rush of Blood to the Head, not in sales or popularity, but with pure artistry and brilliance.well Im ready to move on from and start waiting for lp6, anyone else feel the same way? The mx era will be known for two things great live shows and single flops.... I know many of you might say that there singles never do that well, but they never done this bad either... I live in los angeles were we embrace everything coldplay but this era has been a disaster. there latest poc single is another flop here. many may say that its doing well in the uk or in europe and its #1 in some small chart like the "social chart" or whatever.. but the truth is coldplay have managed to go from a world act to a band that only succeeds in there native uk or europe they have lost there world sound, and i know they have to be dissapointed in that.
It's supposed to be 'their'. I won't go through the rest, I leave that to Cobalt if she feels like itI know many of you might say that there singles never do that well
