Looking for some reference at Chris' MX notebook on my pop up right now.

 

Is there any chance you could scan Chris's diary? I couldn't find it anywhere, and I don't want to buy the popup just because of that... Pretty please?)

It does sound like Chris, but it's a really bad song.. Like most people said it doesn't sounds like Coldplay.

 

The start really reminds me of a Radiohead song.. But I can't remember which one. :confused:

 

Edit: it kind of reminds me about Idioteque. :thinking:

I just think it's strange that this song has never been previously mentioned throughout the whole of the MX era, like no references to it in other MX songs, no lyrics or anything on the graffiti wall or the the pop-up book or anything like that.

 

It's still a pretty good song though.

 

Before Coldplay said that the next single was Paradise no-one had even heard anything of the song) there were a lot of guesses, sex and violence, tomorrow etc. but they were wrong. Unfortunately, there is a whole world of great Coldplay songs that we have never heard and probably never will.)

Come on, it's not that bad) the harmony in the chorus is a little mesmerizing even) it does sound a bit unfinished... The strangest thing is not the voice, but the beat - it sounds too "sampled", Mr. Champion would never pull this off live, should they decide to release it.

I am sorry, I already tryed it but the words are too small printed and it's quite impossible to read something if scanned (it gets all 'dotted').

Well, I didn't find anything with these lyrics, or even "The Shine". All I could see it's this song is not Car Kids...

 

"Car Kids - Real strings

Less in third verse

Add synths back is imho(?) organic

Weirties drums

Too Much Drums out C3? (My commentary: This song only have 2 choruses, not 3)

 

Start will 'clumsy' Fill

Add tambo?

 

Drums too clean | not together enough

 

Make it classical heavy

 

Mylo Landscape"

Yeah I know it makes me want to cry that we will never hear them, I will never get to hear the full version of 'Fall Of Man' that sounded like it could have been one of my favourites :(

Well done for having a look for references, I think we can probably say that this is most likely not a Coldplay song, maybe one day we will find out the truth to this mystery.

It's just a damn shame that it is with such a bad quality! The song is seriously distorted. Perhaps to make it sound more 'real' or to cover up that this is not Chris singing or because someone secretly recorded it by phone while Coldplay was rehersing? Who knows ...

 

I really don't think that's it. It's just the style of music the song is. If we ever get a recorded version I think it would be exactly the same.

In don't think it's not being in the book proves it's fake. We know they've already started a few tracks (according to R42) post MX. This could be a post MX song, or at least from after the notes in the pop up book were collected. I'm not saying it's not fake - it may very well be - I just don't want to discredit it quite yet, as I'd rather look more into it so the mystery doesn't last forever.

Agreed. Someone made a song and posted in on Youtube. Called it 'Coldplay', got attention. Mystery solved. It's none of the band members singing, nothing in this song sounds like Coldplay.

If I remember correctly, those were really obvious fakes. This one, though not sounding like Coldplay, sounds well done to me.

 

As for the Oracle...I think we should ask! I've asked about Famous Old Painters, A View From Above on YouTube. So far - none of the questions I had have been answered - which kinda proves they are real. I think if this one is fake, the Oracle will definitely say something. If she (he?) doesn't - well, there you go. the only thing is, a lot of coldplayers should ask, cause I have a feeling some emails just turn up in the spambox, never to be read...

 

I agree :nod:

 

I submitted my question today. Hopefully she'll be able to answer on Monday if in fact it's a fake.

 

Not wanting to spam the Oracle or anything, but I think a few other people should message her about this too so that she knows it's spreading around on the internet.
