Top Touring Artist: Pretty good shot

Top Rock Tour- Pretty good shot. I'd be suprised if they didn't win at least one of these 2.

Top Duo/Group- Doubtful but possible.

 

These are the categories for that dumb song he did with that dumb group. And by "he" I mean Chris because I find it hard to believe Will, Guy or Jonny wanted anything to do with it-

Top Radio Song- Probably not. My guess would be either Bruno Mars or Ed Sheeran.

Top Collaboration- Probably Despacito or Post Malone

Top Dance/Electronic Song- Eh maybe. Probably not. I think Stay by Alessia Cara/Zedd should win it. But it could be any from that group.

 

 

Dumb song? Eh. I like SJLT I cannot think of it as dumb to be honest.

No it's not dumb. I just resent that they attached their name to The Chainsmokers. To each their own though.

Oh yeah...that's a bit weird.

I do find the song cheesy, and I was already sick of it after about 5 listens.

 

It's just that there are so many great artists that Coldplay should collaborate with, and The Chainsmokers are about on the bottom of any list of that sort, for me.

This is kind of how I personally feel about Princess of China ... good thing we are all different :)

Happy birthday, Ghost Stories!

 

Okay, people, here is our religion.

 

Chris is the God with a form of an angel, that makes sadness and sorrow disappear. Legend says that if you hear his singing voice, that means you are blessed.

 

Jonny is the God that controls the weather, if he plays a sad chord on his guitar, it's either going to rain, or snow, or something worse. If he plays a happy one, means it will be a sunny day, or better! His blessing is accepting the weather no matter how bad or good it is.

 

Will is the God of strength who protects Coldplayers and the other Gods. Legend says his blessing is if you be nice to people.

 

Guy is the God of beauty, if you see his face you will be hypnotized for a period of time (hypnotisseeeddd), but you also may die if he wants you to. His blessing is to judge people from the inside, not their looks.

 

Here are the holidays:

 

Coldplay: 16th February (22)

 

Jonny Buckland: September 11 1977 (40)

Chris Martin: March 2 1977 (41)

Guy Berryman: April 13 1978 (40)

Will Champion: July 31 1978 (39)

Phil Harvey: August 12 1976 (41)

 

Parachutes: 7 June (17)

AROBTTH: 26 August (15)

X&Y: 6 June (12)

VLVODAAHF: 12 June (9)

Prospekt's March: 21 November (9)

MX: 19 October (6)

GS: 19 May (4)

AHFOD: 4 December (2)

Coldplay is January 16 if anything and then it would be 20 years. Parachutes is July 10. I'll better not start commenting on the other stuff above :imp:

You can celebrate the way you want to. I use the US releases, even when I don't even live there. And a few more info, when I said "Coldplay in February, 22 years old", I meant "Starfish" and since Starfish was a band since 1996 then it is 22 years old.

 

Just stating, this "religion" as I like to call it (and which I've been writing a book about), is fanmade. I simply wanted to share it. You don't have to celebrate any of it (I have more holidays on the list aswell, these are a few that came to mind). You don't have to "believe" any of it (of course, haha). I apologize for the misunderstanding.

No need to apologize ! And obviously anyone can celebrate whatever they want, I was just commenting on a few things that caught my eye. And I have to comment yet again because even when you take US releases there is no way Parachutes could have come out in the US a whole month earlier than its standard release on July 10, so maybe this is a misunderstanding ? About Starfish, they chose this name in a panic in January 1998 when they had their first ever gig booked, according to Jonny's own handwritten note. See this page of the official Coldplay timeline about it: http://timeline.coldplay.com/first-show-the-laurel-tree-camden-2/ If you watch the video, they do mention some names they had considered or were going by before that.

 

This religious stuff somehow reminds me of The Church Of Chris Martin. Do you know them ?

And now I'm kinda curious what you wrote about it and what some other holidays are :D

I just discovered that the red and blue bands Chris wore on his fingers during the X&Y era is supposed to represent the album artwork.

I don't know about the Parachutes thing, maybe I'm just blind. I don't know where I found "February" thing either, I think I heard it in an interview somewhere? God, I'm a mess! And the rest of the holidays are a bunch of EP's, I'd love to hear your comments on the rest so I can fix everything! Thank you.

 

P.S And I think that that 16'th January is when their first mini concert happened. And it is also 1998. But I was talking about 1996, since that's when they first formed as a band (so, Pectoralz, right?). Anyway, it's sometimes very hard to figure out the original dates of things.

Top Duo/Group- Doubtful but possible.

 

These are the categories for that dumb song he did with that dumb group. And by "he" I mean Chris because I find it hard to believe Will, Guy or Jonny wanted anything to do with it-

Well just shows how much I know about award shows. Forget me.

But hey, at least they won something!

Honestly though, how did they not win either of the touring categories? I guess U2 had slightly better grossing numbers in 2017 alone...

Hence why I don't dare commenting on things like that ... or sports :cool:

Is it possible to marry Square One? Actually, can I marry everything involved with Coldplay?

It's such a good song. In my top 10 by them.

I've just come across the news that two days ago there was a man performing Viva la Vida during one of the episodes of SuperStar 2018 (Idol franchise) with contestants both from the Czech Republic and Slovakia.

Hey everyone, can't believe it's been over 3 months since the last time I was here. I also wanted to share something. It's a throwback to 2009, tomorrow exactly 9 years ago Coldplay played Life In Technicolor ii for a soundcheck (which was too good to be just a soundcheck). So for those who want to see them playing their best song (at least it is for me) sometime again; I'll post the video here:

 

Enjoy :)

 

Thanks @AMDB9 , @42Escapist etc... Just wanted to say your likes made my day:cool: (Please, there's no need to like this again :laughing:)
