"Miracles" new original song by Coldplay for movie "Unbroken"

Coldplay, John Legend and Common enter the Best Original Song Oscar race

 

Last year's "Alone Yet Not Alone" shenanigans were a nice reminder that the Academy's Music Branch can certainly march to its own drum (no pun intended), for better or worse. So you never can tell how the Best Original Song Oscar race will turn out, and the highest of profiles isn't necessarily a guaranteed pass. Nevertheless, this year's race — already marked by contenders from popular music such as New Radicals' Gregg Alexander ("Begin Again") and the legendary Patti Smith ("Noah") — has just picked up a trio of heavy hitters.

 

I'm told that two of the final films still to be revealed this season, Ava DuVernay's "Selma" and Angelina Jolie's "Unbroken," feature original tracks that mainly play over the closing credits. "Glory" from the former comes courtesy of John Legend and Common, while "Miracle" from the latter is performed by Coldplay. "Miracle," I'm told, begins over "Unbroken's" post-narrative epilogue (images of the real Louis Zamperini, etc.) and continues into the credits. I'm not sure what other context "Glory" might have outside of the credit roll.

 

Both songs join others like "Everything is Awesome" from "The LEGO Movie" (a favorite in some quarters) and "The Last Goodbye" from "The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies" in a category that is certain to remain at least somewhat nebulous until the nominations are revealed. But keep an eye on the tunes from musical "Beyond the Lights" — particularly "Blackbird" — which are featured in the context of the film. That is always a plus given the way this category has been decided in recent years (with branch members viewing clips of the eligible tracks as they are featured in the respective films).

 

The Academy will reveal the official list of eligible Best Original Song contenders in early December.

While I REALLY love Atlas, I'm aware that it was a little too simple, musically and lyrically, so maybe that was the reason of it not being nominated.

 

Anyway, let's go back to the next topic... OMG NEW COLDPLAY SONG! :D

I don't think musically it was too simple. It is extremely similar to Fly On and both are fairly hard. I'm referring to piano if you didn't know already :lol:

I can't wait! I really hope the song is nice and long and not crammed for time like Atlas. Don't get me wrong, Atlas is awesome, but you can tell the track was definitely rushed to fit into the credit seen. (the verse goes right into the chorus almost awkwardly fast imo which makes it feel both clunky and cheesy.)

 

WOOOOOO NEW COLDPLAY! Hope it is a sign that LP7 is not too far off at all. oh please.

 

Wait...do you guys think there is a possibility that Miracle is an LP7 track, similar to how Atlas was considered for GS? Or am I completely wrong here and the track was just specifically recorded for the film?

I thought this too! It would he awesome if it was released but in a way is find Coldplay albums are stories in themselves so in a way it would be cool if it was separate but who knows!...

Could be that it will be considered, like Atlas. But like Atlas it probably won't end up on the album in the end. The title "Miracle" does seem LP7-ish though from what we've heard so far.

 

I'd rather it didn't go on the album, means more songs for us. :)
