Random Coldplay thoughts...

Recommended Posts

Something's drawn me back to viva la vida era Coldplay. Like how good was the whole atmosphere and the uniforms that the band wore. Can't believe it's been 10 years though

Although AROBTTH is my favorite album, VLV is the best era for me. They were on top of their game then, in every aspect- the music, Chris' vocals, the art and visuals, etc. It really sucks that they don't play most of those songs anymore. I'd rather have Lovers in Japan, LiT2, Violet Hill, most of the VLV hits over the newer hits in concert.

I share the same views, how neat! AROBTTH is also my favorite album and I totally agree that the VLV era was the band's best. Had so much charm to it.

It's hard to explain... Maybe I felt wooed by it because it was the first live Coldplay concert I attended with my Sister was during their Viva tour 2008 just shy of Thanksgiving in my home of Arizona. (I now tend to think of the entire month of November as a make-shift Coldplay month.) It might be the puppets used in their videos, their concert attire, the use of church bell... everything the art aesthetic, it just seems so very fun and playful.

Totally, VLV was by far their best era artistically.

 

I am so jealous of everyone who was able to see a VLV or X&Y concert. I am very grateful to have seen AHFOD, and even though it was one of the most incredible experiences of my life, I get the sense it was nothing like VLV or X&Y. I would lose my s*** standing in front of the band kicking off LiT or Square One lol

If I could go back in time, it would literally be to go to an X&Y concert

When I watch Toronto 2006 I'm like, what do I have to do to be one of those people in the front row.

When neighbours below your flat are playing a remix of SJLT so aloud that you can hear it and actually feel the floor vibrating, oh well. Someone's throwing a party, haha. :D

Is the song Mooie Ellebogen (idk if I spelled that correctly) sung to the tune of another, more famous song?

He sang it in The Netherlands, so I'm not sure there isn't a song with that tune.

But the sentences are not from any other song I know of. [emoji4]

Actually, I found it. It's to the tune of a children's nursery rhyme called Ten Little Indians. The same tune starts at 0:14 in this video:

I tried to sing Mooie Ellebogen along with it and it doesn't match for me. [emoji16]

Well, it's not an exact match because Chris added some extra syllables, but it's still the same tune.

It feels like I had been in hibernation until AHFOD film came out, and now I'm back to my full on Coldplayer mode again. So I wanted to watch Live 2012, I go and find it. Only to see that it's not in its case! So now I have to clean up my entire house and hope to find it :sob: Also, I can't find my Ghost Stories CD. So basically I don't take care of my stuff and I purchased Ghost Stories again. Hope I learn my lesson! Wish me luck on finding my Live 2012 disc.

EDIT. Saw not until now that this was posted on the LP8 thread already, but I'm gonna leave it here anyways

 

Just stumbled upon this. I now they are supposed to be in hiatus until 2021 as far as touring was concerned, so no idea if this is legit or not, but this tweet w/ video claims that Coldplay would be performing in 2019.

Today I visited my friends who accompanied me on Wednesday when we went to the local cinema to see the film. I brought my Coldplay-related stuff with myself to show them what I own. We were fooling around and did something special as you can see in the picture. We pasted everything on the wall and the cupboard to make it look like we had built a shrine dedicated to the Coldplay!

 

Yes, the poster is the one I got in the cinema after the screening of AHFOD when I asked for it.

I like the way it's decorated, nice collection you have there!

I would buy it directly if they were selling those posters in our local cinema!
