Pop-Up Book Discoveries

The notes from Chris's Notebook in the Pop-Up has a lot of info. This is what I got:

 

1. A Hopeful Transmission was a full song with vocals and lyrics.

Update: On one of the pages (I forget) it includes an entry back in 2010 with "A Hopeful Transmission" Chris Martin vocal takes. Just more proof it was a full song.

 

2. Car Kids and Love in a Lethal Dose were new songs on the list for Glastonbury but weren't played.

 

3. Car Kids was one of the last tracks cut from the album list, so it must be a great song. It also says Car Kids is a heavy classical/landscape type song with strings, synths, claps, and tambourines.

Update: It apparently starts with Will "clumsy" drum playing and claps, then adds tambourine, real strings, synths to back 15 intro. Chris wanted it to be organic and scenery music. (Sounds good :D)

 

4. There's a list of songs made on 16th June 2010 which includes G.E. (Great Expectations), C.B. (Charlie Brown), P. (Paradise), W. (Wilderness?), HLH (Hurts Like Heaven), MMIX, MMinus (Major Minus), MTM (Moving to Mars), CK (Car Kids), AHT (A Hopeful Transmission), and ETIAW (Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall).

 

The list made later on includes unreleased songs CK (Car Kids), and Rescue Street

 

5. There are other words, but we don't know if they are songs yet, like Aiko, 1000K, Rex.

 

6. Moving to Mars was supposed to sound like a mix of "Bullet the Blue Sky", "Drive", and "42".

 

7. On the Up in Flames artwork page, there is notes that includes a preliminary track-listing for the album as MX, HLH, POC, CB, P, UATW, MM, UWTB, UFO, ETIAW. It also includes some songs being considered: Tomorrow? MTM? AHT?

 

Possible New Songs (isn't that what all of us want :P):

Car Kids

Love in a Lethal Dose

Tomorrow

Wilderness (?)

Rescue Street

Mylo Xyloto/Great Expectations (full song or new song)

A Hopeful Transmission (full song)

 

Some of the lyrics:

 

A Hopeful Transmission:

 

Guide me stranger

Shepherd me through danger

Though I might

No I won't

When I'm

Guide me, guide me to

If I fall in hot water / peril

Or jump in

 

 

Mylo Xyloto/ Great Expectations:

 

In my head, in my brain

In my head, all these (things?) I just can't explain

 

Left to right

Tip to toes

We're in flight

And we're going

Where nobody knows

The streets are paved with gold

 

Under the ocean

By a whale swallowed whole

Swallowed me / us whole

 

Pure poetry in motion

We're both down here

Losing control

Sellotaping my soul

 

It's alright

Greet the light

Greet the sky

So we ride

So we rise

So let fly, your blutterfly.

 

The cover of MX:

 

The two of us we drove

A speeding ghost, and a shadow

The road to the sea

We swam from the shallows

To battle lightning's glow

Where we're gonna run, God only knows

Take you . . .

 

Silencia/A Man Who Swears/Major Minus:

 

There's a man who swears he's God

But I'm pretty sure he's not

There's a man who walks around

Like he owns the f*ckin lot

 

Takes his time

A playing with your mind

Crocodile clock

 

You must

It's just work

It's not easy / hard

 

All the while

Tell you that you're climbing

Pulling the ladder apart

Saw the boss hogg

 

If anyone finds anything else, they should share it.

Good thread! Hopefully others can add to it! They're really toying with us over the whole Car Kids thing!

 

:nod: I understand that some people get annoyed with this whole Car Kids thing, but the fact is that it's EVERYWHERE! That's why it's so strange

I've got it too. If you look at the bottom of the page with pics of Chris' notebook theres a page that's mostly covered with another page that's yellow (Possible cover up of something very important???) you can still see the top of the page which says Up On a Wire. It's capitilized like a song so it must be another b-side. Also The Man Who Swears was considered for the album. There's only a few other things I could make out because Chris' handwriting is TERRIBLE!!!!

The amount of references to Car Kids is infuriating! Why can't they just release it??!

 

:laugh3: it's true! It's the song that is everywhere but that no one has heard. I hope they release it as a b-side or something.
