"Miracles" debuted at #95 on the UK Singles Chart...


Must of completely bombed after Monday when it was top 30. Was hoping for top 20 but o well, I guess some of it has to do with the film Unbroken having almost no interest at all here and Coldplay's longevity after Ghost Stories not being great either (with the exception of ASFOS, floating around top 50/60)

to be fair, it wasn't promoted or marketed well. and the movie seems to not be doing well in the press.


the worst part is the timing, can't remember anything released on Christmas/New Year's holidays being really successful on charts or box office

from this article

Mr. Reznor may have paid little attention to film soundtracks before intersecting with Mr. Fincher, but Mr. Martin, of Coldplay, said he and his mates spent a good part of their teenage years writing James Bond-like music. Yet for ages after becoming successful, Coldplay did not write original songs for movies. “For a long time we were holding out to do a Bond theme,” Mr. Martin joshed. When it became clear that wasn’t happening, the band agreed to write “Atlas” for “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” (2013), earning Grammy and Golden Globe nominations. Then Angelina Jolie came calling, asking for a song for “Unbroken.” Mr. Martin said the band members found the books on which “Unbroken” and “Hunger Games” were based to be deeply inspiring, ergo their decision in both cases to say yes.


“Anything that opens up fresh parts of your imagination is to be encouraged,” he said, “but you can only really do it if you respond to the subject.”
