    I just found this song by Coldplay - I Bloom Blaum ...

    Ironically I really like it, even if it isn't about that much. I think it's a really beautiful song. Anyway I wondered if anyone can recommend any other really obscure coldplay songs that I might not have heard.

    love

    I am guessing that when you say obscure songs that you mean songs that aren't on their 7 "main", commonly-known albums. If I am assuming this right, then:
    Have you ever heard Moving to Mars or Gravity? Those are two of my favorite lesser-known songs of theirs.
    And, Postcards from Far Away (on Prospekt's March) is just beautiful.
    It's sure fun to dive into their lesser-knowns, especially the oldest ones. Have you heard Ode to Deodorant? :)

    I've never heard moving to Mars and I think it's great! Thankyou so much for sharing that one!

    There are just too many ! :D Some of this band's best work was on B-sides or is altogether unreleased. Search Youtube for Coldplay B-sides and unreleased songs.
    Some gems are: I Ran Away, Things I Don't Understand, Proof, Crests Of Waves, Careful Where You Stand, For You, Harmless, A View From The Top...

    A bunch of great rare songs have already been mentioned! Reminds me that I should listen to them again. It has been a while.

    Hmm, what else...?

    Off the top of my head, I definitely recommend Pour Me, Animals, A Spell A Rebel Yell, Bucket For a Crown, and No More Keeping My Feet On the Ground.

    The original version of See You Soon is great, but the Live 2003 version is spectacular. Do give it a listen!

    And while Moses is one of the better-known "obscure" Coldplay songs, most people haven't heard this version. I think it's even better than the Live 2003 recording, which is the best-known version. The band is absolutely on fire.

    I've actually listened to a lot of songs on YouTube but there are so many and people are recommending ones I've never found and they are often ones I like much more than some of the stuff I've found!
    I want to find those hidden gems like you say!

    love
