Random Coldplay thoughts...

Recommended Posts

Yesterday on Jeopardy: last question: This 2008 number one song’s title was inspired by a Frida (mind going blank right now!) painting. Song is by a British group.

 

Like Really??? And only one person got it!!

Here in the US, I noticed that the studio version of True Love was recently taken down on Spotify (live version still up). There is a recent reddit thread about it, but no one seems to know why. Some other countries have it though.

Anyone have any theories or knowledge?

My theory is copyright issues related to Timbaland and/or Madeon...

Also apparently Always In My Head is unavailable in Canada?

Whats timbaland and madeon?

Timbaland is a rapper/producer that helped create/created the beat on True Love.

Madeon is an artist/DJ who, according to Chris, helped a bit on O and True Love.

But it was with permission right?

Right, but I can't figure out any reason why that specific song was taken down, unless there are copyright issues with the contributors to the song, or they are being sued by a Joe Satriani.

FYI, I was very loosely and casually following this coldplay twitter worse song bracket. FWIW, the finalists were Easy To Please, A Spell A Rebel Yell, X Marks The Spot and 1.36. Eventually, A Spell A Rebel Yell was named the worse song. I think that or 1.36 wouldve had my vote (even from the whole library). What do yall think.

 

Here's the bracket

^yeah, at least out of the 4, its the strongest IMO

 

but before anyone goes crazy, this was just a lighthearted poll, and something had to be last. A good way someone said it was its not the worst song, its the least liked.

that i dont know, I caught it relatively late.

 

Agree, not sure why In My Place was there. I wouldnt say its the best song, but closer to the best than the worst if we're placing it on a spectrum.

From what I read the songs weren't selected by votes, the person who started it just asked some people to name songs they don't like. So yeah not representative or anything. I'm still shocked that A Spell A Rebel Yell lost against XMTS ! XMTS should have been last in my opinion :)

Someone "summoned" me on Twitter to vote between ASARY and XMTS. [emoji4]

 

I didn't know there was a whole voting traject leading to this choice.

 

But XMTS being better?

 

Come on:

 

As far as I can see

All time and circuitry

Is wrong

As far as poetry

Sit down and sing to me

A song

'Cause all I want in this world

All I want in this world

Is for you to come home

A spell, a rebel yell

A spell

Soldier, come home to me

You've been away from me

So long

All I want in this world

All I want and deserve

Is for you to come home

A spell, a rebel yell

A spell, a rebel yell

A spell, a rebel yell

A spell, a rebel yell

A spell, a rebel yell

A spell, a rebel yell

A spell, a rebel yell

A spell, a rebel yell

 

-----

 

Stare into darkness, staring at doom

My heart go boom, bo-boom boom

Stare into darkness, admit defeat

Coming home and I'm finding no peace

 

And I know, and I know and I know

I know I'm out of luck

And I know, and I know and I know

I know what you've got

 

I put my hands up to the sky, the feeling is like

I've got a rocketship that I want to ride

I put my hands up to the sky, the feeling is like

Wherever you are, I'll find that treasure

 

(So I reach for it) Wherever you are, I'll find that treasure

(So I reach for it)

 

Stare into darkness, staring at doom

You make my heart go boom, bo-boom boom

Superhero, a masterpiece

Been innocent but a sinner in me

 

And I know, and I know and I know

I know I'm in luck

And I know, and I know and I know

I know when I'm not

 

I just put my hands up to the sky, I'm feeling like

I've got a rocketship that I want to ride

I put my hands up to the sky, the feeling is like

Wherever you are, I'll find that treasure

 

I just put my hands up to the sky, the feeling is like

I've got a rocket, eyes on the prize

I put my hands up to the sky, I'm gonna find

Wherever you are, I'll find that treasure

 

(So I reach for it) Wherever you are, I'll find that treasure

(So I reach for it) Wherever you are, I'll find that treasure

(So I reach for it) And I know, and I know, and I know

(So I reach for it) I know what I've got

X marks the spot

 

I just put my hands up to the sky, I'm feeling like

I've got a rocketship that I want to ride

I put my hands up to the sky, the feeling is like

Wherever you are, I'll find that treasure

[repeat]

 

 

I rest my case. [emoji16]

This Death and all His Friends beer looks amazing.

Also, I think people who use Coldplay as some sort of insult are totally unoriginal who have jumped on a bandwagon. You know how you know you are a bad writer with no talent? You can't think of anything better than Coldplay as an analogy for a putdown.

you rest your case? All you did was post the lyrics. I think there's more to music than lyrics.

 

Anyways, this can spiral way out of control. Lets just agree to disagree. I like that song more, your like that song more, hooray for differences amirite?

I'm just shocked True Love wasn't in the bracket, that one's definitely in my top 10 of worst Coldplay songs :p

And there's nothing wrong with A Spell A Rebel Yell imo, it doesn't deserve this title

^ I was the same way with True Love, but then I went through something that made me appreciate it more.

 

As with most of the songs in the bracket. I feel like I can appreciate them if im in a certain mood, as opposed to a song like Viva La Vida or Politik where I can listen to it whenever.

 

My personal reason for not liking ASARY is I haven't found that 'mood' to be in to like it, lol. With XMTS, as per its design from Chris, it gets me in a clubby, city-urban, mood youknowwhatImean?

I agree. I didn't love it a first, but the more I listened to it I was reminded of how I felt the last time I had a break up. I did want him to tell me he loved me even if it wasn't true bc I wasn't ready to accept it yet. Not healthy but totally human. I made him give me one last kiss too and we were both sobbing through it.

 

Years later after I was firmly in love and married to someone else he kept coming back trying to get in contact with me. I am so much better off than I would've been with him. Dodged a bullet and ended up with bittersweet revenge. You have no way of knowing that at the time.

Thanks for sharing. Yeah, I think that's part of why GS is such a polarizing album. If you're a sap like me, then you're gonna connect more with it. If you don't wanna catch the feels, then you're gonna have a bad time.

To add to the XMTS/ASARY debate, of course it's not just about the lyrics, but A Spell A Rebel Yell also has a very unusual-sounding, interesting instrumental. You can't deny it's more experimental than the one of XMTS.
