⭐️DISCUSS COLDPLAY'S RUMOURED UPCOMING ALBUM!🪐
I ran away

The epic COLDPLAY vs. COLDPLAY game - everything against everything

Recommended Posts

Hi folks, I've devised a new game. It's very easy: you pitch something versus something else, and the next poster must answer which one she/he prefers. The next poster will then ask another question, which can be something completely different, and so on. The items you pitch against each other must be related to Coldplay. But it can really be anything Coldplay-related ! It should be something that can be compared though (A bad question would for example be: "AROBTTH album cover vs. lyrics of Talk", because how on earth can you compare these two things ?)

 

 

I give a few good examples:

 

Viva stage outfit vs. X&Y stage outfit

Make Trade Fair vs. Oxfam

curly hairstyle on Chris vs. curly hairstyle on Guy

first line of What If vs. first line of Shiver

etc.

 

 

All right ! Then I'll just kick it off with the first question:

 

Parlophone vs. Fierce Panda Label

Parlophone! Though Fierce Panda is close just because of its name. :lol:

 

Prospekt vs. Roadie 42

Roadie 42 because at least he's still around

Definitely the Viva chant, it's just amazing and it doesn't even need words to be amazing, meaning everyone of every language can feel it !

 

X&Y album cover vs. AROBTTH album cover

AROBTTH album cover. It's so unique, I've never seen anything else like it except for the AROBTTH-era single cover art.

 

Coldplay's Glastonbury set in 2005 vs. Glastonbury set in 2011

Coldplay's Glastonbury set in 2005 ! One of my favorite concerts, especially because they played lots of X&Y songs.

 

Coldplay vs. Starfish (the band names)

Coldplay because it's so unique....it wasn't a word before the boys started using it (well, I guess it was, but that was a different band, so it doesnt count ;) )

 

Last verse of Square One vs last verse of White Shadows

Last verse of Square One because it resonated very strongly with my personal situation at the time that I was heavily listening to it !

 

equality sign on Chris's hand vs. MTF written on piano

Equality sign on Chris's hand because I think getting the symbol tattooed on shows a lot of sincere dedication to the cause. Chris literally made the Make Trade Fair campaign a part of him!

The Scientist's music video vs. Talk's music video

 

Interestingly, it was once revealed that it was only a drawing, not a permanent tattoo. Too bad he doesn't draw it on any longer, I liked it.

 

The Scientist music video. Talk is the better song in my opinion but its video was not well executed (although it does have interesting premises)

 

original VLV video vs. alternate VLV video

Alternate video ! the original is good because of it being representative the concept/artwork etc of the album, but alternate is just brilliantly beautiful, funny and offbeat :)

 

let's go on with the vids

 

original ASFOS video vs. the scrapped one

I assume you mean the songs themselves, not the videos. Then I choose Princess of China, to be honest, for a pop song it is a fairly good one and I prefer it to other Coldplay-pop like ETIAW.

 

Chris with curls vs. Chris with flat hair

It's not something I notice or care about if I'm honest. His flat hairstyle is the same as mine so I'll say that.

 

Violet Hill live (Viva Era) vs Violet Hill live (MX era)

Not sure, but I'll say Violet Hill live (Viva Era) because I preferred the live concerts during the Viva Era in general.

 

Chris singing in deep voice vs. Chris singing in high voice

Chris singing in high voice because that's who Chris really is....it's what distinguishes him and makes him unique.

 

MX Comics vs MX Pop-up Book

Ugh, I don't like either of them...but I'll go for the Pop-up book.

Guitar riff in Talk.....definitely!

Marianne. I find it cool that Will, the drummer of one of the biggest bands in the world, married a schoolteacher instead of someone with a celebrity background.

Exactly my thoughts. I think it would have suited Chris better to do the same instead of running after famous actresses...

lyrics of A Message vs. lyrics of Oceans

Lyrics of A Message. They're less cryptic and mysterious but they're full of more passion and emotion. I like how they're based off of an old hymn (My Song Is Love Unknown).

 

Brian Eno vs. Jon Hopkins

Ah tough. GPASUYF Viva (techno) version just about edges it for me. The riff is awesome. Uniqueness over raw energy for this one!

 

Edit - Brian Eno - He's a legend.

 

Talk (version 1 / alternate) vs Talk (single/album version)

Talk(album version). I love both of them and both are brilliant though, I feel the album version is slightly catchier. Although I may love the alternate more if it had been the first one for me to hear, who knows.

 

lyrics about "I" vs. lyrics about "you"
