Yep, you've got it exactly right. I recall in an interview Chris gave that he mentioned the song's title was a tribute to The Beatles. ^^Could there be a connection between that and Strawberry Fields Forever??
This is one of the reasons that I love Coldplay so much, they affect everyone in a totally unique wayI think Coldplay's lyrics are like poems, so everyone can interpret the meaning of 'Strawberry Swing' differently.
Ehhhrm :\I think “Strawberry” because almost all people, except for probably diabetics, love strawberry and besides it personifies love, romantic and all that...
Certainly Chris could name a song Pizza’s Swing, and it would please many fans, because the bigger half of people love pizza the same way and its no less romantic what strawberry. But however a strawberry is loved by plenty of people and ... I don’t see output here
I also feel the same way.Reminds me of stopping to appreciate a beautiful day and/or make everyday interesting. In some interview or article with Chris Martin I remember him talking about how he likes to make every day amazing. As a whole, the song perplexes me, but I can't help feeling amazing with the "afro-pop" guitar and upbeat mood.
Both songs are about childhood, both have the word 'strawberry' in the title, and both are exactly 4:10 long. Yes, very good chance this song is a deliberate tribute to John Lennon and his great song.Could there be a connection between that and Strawberry Fields Forever??
