Gravity (appreciation Thread)


Recommended Posts

How the fuck is this song so good? Why isn't it on an album? Jesus Christ, Martin give some credit to your best written songs.


It should be a rule here that all noobs must be given this song. I went over a year on here without ever hearing it.

YouTube - Coldplay - Gravity Soundcheck (24th June 2003)[/url]


that's where I first heard part of it. I listened to the first 10 seconds or so and thought, "Meh, I don't usually like Coldplay's B-sides, why listen?"

Haha, don't worry about it! :P


And yay! You should start recording them :blush:

Oh the evil "R" word :disappointed:



But don't worry, there's that one that I surely will, even if you're the only one to ever hear it! :P

Gravity is such an excellent B-side, and is probably better than at least 4 or 5 songs on X&Y.


Likewise, I totally approve of all newcomers being given a "gift" in the form of a Gravity download link. :lol:

I'm pretty sure it wasn't included on their album because they originally gave the song to the band Embrace. They decided to re-record it later, but I guess it just wouldn't be right to put a song given to another band on a record, so they settled for b-side.


It's a gorgeous song though. Crests of Waves is a b-side that everyone needs to hear as well. How it wasn't included on A Rush of Blood is beyond me.
