xTwisted_Logicx Posted June 23, 2011 Share Posted June 23, 2011 Okay Guys, So I did lots of research and found the following things. Before Viva La Vida and Death to All His Friends: The only single released BEFORE the album was "Violet Hill" In this single "A Spell A Rebel Yell" and "Lost?(The "?" Indicating it is the version of Lost! with only Chris and a Piano) were b-sides included with Violet Hill. NEITHER B-Sides were in the album. Before X&Y: The only single released BEFORE the album was "Speed Of Sound". In this single "Things I Don't Understand" and "Proof" were the b-sides included with Speed of Sound. NEITHER B-sides made the album. Before A Rush of Blood to the Head: The only single released BEFORE the album was "In My Place" In this single "One I Love" and "I Bloom Blaum" were b-sides included with In My Place. Neither made the album. Before Parachutes: The singles released BEFORE the album were "Shiver" and "Yellow". Shiver included B-sides "For You" and "Careful Where You Stand", while Yellow included B-sides "Help is Round the Corner" and "No More Keeping My Feet On The Ground (Which was also on the Safety EP)". Once again, none of these four B-sides made the album. Kind of a pattern don't you think? I think "Every Teardrop is a Waterfall" will indeed be on the album, and "Major Minus" and "Moving to Mars" will be simple B-sides. I'm not so pleased with ETIAW as I was with other songs, but after hearing Major Minus on the radio today I almost gagged. I hope Moving to Mars is better. Charlie Brown and Princess of China and Hurts Like Heaven are GREAT and I'm expecting those songs WILL make the album. Another Pattern I noticed is the band seems to release the first single of the album just about from 2 weeks- a month before the album hits shelves. Violet Hill: 9 May 2008, Album: 11 June 2008 Speed of Sound: 23 May 2005, Album: 6 June 2005 In My Place: 5 August 2002, Album: 26 August 2002 Yellow: 26 June 2000, Album: 10 July 2000 (Shiver was first single, but it was the first one they released through Parlophone/EMI, meaning it was their "start" with them, so more songs were pending on the success of "Shiver".)
