Random Coldplay thoughts...

Glad to see this forum still active! I usually visit at least once a week (mostly lurking and liking posts haha) but I hadn't visited it for a few weeks. I like the new design and hope everyone is okay, especially with everything that's going on in the world ❤️ 

Reading I ran away's post above made me realise that I have been a member for 4 years (since late March 2016) and a Coldplayer for 4,5 years which is insane to me. It seems like it was yesterday when I really got into Coldplay but time passed without me even realising it. I wasn't the same person I was 4,5 years ago and Coldplay and this forum helped me feel better back then and still do. Even when there are times when I haven't listened to Coldplay in a while, they are still in my heart and when I listen to them again their songs have the same effect on me like always. I think Coldplay will always have that special spot in my heart. I hope Coldplaying will exist for many more years as well, I really like that we have a forum that all of us can connect, this community is one of the best I've stumbled upon. 

Also wanted to say that I love that Coldplay has been interacting with us a little bit these past few weeks, with Chris' live, Jonny recommending songs, Guy posting interesting things ( also happy birthday to this beautiful bassist ❤️ ).

I don' really know why I am writing this, it's really late here and I should be sleeping lol 😛 i just wanted to say thank you to Coldplay for coming into my life and Coldplaying for existing I guess and I'll come back tomorrow to see more posts that I've missed

Great to see you back here! I can't even remember when I joined Coldplaying (my join date gets reset often due to all the database work I do) but I think I just passed 5 years! I may be a bit biased but I think it's a lovely place for all of us to come together and discuss nothing but Coldplay 😛 it has felt extra special lately with everything going on.

Don't worry, Coldplaying will be here until the day I physically can no longer run it!

Thank you for coming on here and contributing 🙂

I just wanted to say, after 5 years of being part of the Coldplay fandom, first on Coldplaying, now on Coldplaying, Twitter and other platforms, a wonderful thing happened today: Coldplay followed me

On this day exactly 5 years ago, a young and innocent person who was just getting really into Coldplay wanted to sign up on a forum called Coldplaying. Faced with the question of what to pick as a use

Today exactly 5 years ago, I joined the Coldplaying community and I don't regret that that. To be honest, it's probably one of the best things that have happened in my life! I had never thought I woul

They should have given Chris more time to perform some music. After all, it was him who initiated the whole worldwide Show.

^also, I mean, fine, you dont want to give him more  time since he isnt the biggest celeb, but dont just replay the performance he did already! But if you are going to replay the performance he did, dont have someone talk over it!

3 Cemeteries of London

5 Reign of Love

6 Glass Of Water

12 Lukas

14 Famous Old Painters

18 The Goldrush

19 Death will never conquer

 

As for the stuff in the lower right, can't read most of it either. But I see "Life Rolls On" and something like "Childrens... Foundation" so probably ideas for charities to support.

So it sounds like Parr Street Studios, where a lot of Parachutes and AROBTTH were recorded, will be demolished soon🙁 

https://www.nme.com/news/music/liverpool-legendary-parr-street-studios-look-set-to-be-demolished-2657247

I’m so happy that I was able to visit them a few years ago..I remember Jonny talking fondly about the studios on Storytellers in 2005 and how they helped the band to clear their minds after recording in bigger cities and improve the records that we all love.

I can’t remember who asked for this or which thread it was now, but somebody asked a few months ago for this video from Rhythm Studios back in 2017 where Will does a ‘masterclass’ with Miller and Dan Green explaining how the live shows work with all the backing tracks.
 

I randomly stumbled on it on the internet just now..so this thread is clearly the best place to put it xD
 

So whoever you are, if you’re still out there, here it is...

Sorry that the video and audio isn’t great, I think there was originally a better quality version on YT but it was deleted a while ago, so that’s the best that we’ve got. I’m very happy that it’s come in useful for someone! 😁

That's okay, just having it in some form is good enough! I do think the better quality verson was taken down due to copyright, but this will work for now 😀

Posting here because it felt truly random today. Tho I usually rank it as my least favorite Coldplay album, I just listened to AHFOD and it slaps. Heading into the album in 2015 I had some head canon about Coldplay doing this big dance album and was ultimately disappointed when it ended up being a mixture of lots of genres and overall tones. Sometimes it takes a lot of separation, and a new album (EL), to go back and fully appreciate an album era. I think a lot of critics and light fans will disregard the album of having weird tonal shifts and covering too many themes, but looking back at the last 4.5 years I find a lot of value in Chris' lyrics and have come to appreciate the interesting mixture of alt-rock and modern pop that Stargate brought to the album. Will's percussion is so good on this thing and its remarkable a band that started with low-fi indie rock could end up producing such lush and well produced songs 15 years later. 4 years ago I wouldn't have felt this way, but the nostalgia lenses are coming on team.

Interesting take, because I still feel AHFOD is not well produced. Nostalgia makes everything sound better, for me too, but the same things I found annoying back then I still find annoying now. To me it's the opposite, to my ears albums like AROBTTH (even Parachutes, in its intimate sound) have what i would call a great production. Ken Nelson was a genius.

Every time I listen to Kaleidoscope EP I think that's what AHFOD should have sounded like. What if would have sounded like if Bill Rahko, Dan Green and Rik Simpson aka The Dream Team had produced it instead of Stargate.
