Unfinished now finished

Recommended Posts

So has you may now life is beutiful was the recycling of spanish rain, and yesterday watchin "coldplay documentary (2009)" from coldplay daily i noticed thsa in the minute 43.25 theres a part where you can hear the "Watching my life

On the skyline/ Crossing your eyes/ For a lifetime" A L I E N S part where brian eno sings, and this is curious because it means ha A L I E N S is older than we think, and also means that they are finishing songs.

This was already mentioned in the A L I E N S thread before. It's most likely that this song is diresctly linked with Alien Radio, from the Mylo Xyloto sessions.

They're always doing that i think. For example we can't know Violet Hill is rework of December or not. Every song can be a rework of earlier, hits can too.

Wow never noticed this. That is VERY clearly A L I E N S (and I think it's even in 5/4 like the finished song) with that high acoustic guitar line and everything. Thanks for sharing!

 

A couple more examples:

-There's an interview somewhere that Chris says Ink is like See You Soon where they had the acoustic guitar in the same tuning and just sort of discovered the new melody for that. Not quite an unfinished then finished situation, but certainly the song lived on in a different way!

 

-If you listen to the guitar lines in the chorus of Things I Don't Understand, it sounds very recycled into the chorus of What If.

 

-Christmas Lights is what Wedding Bells became pretty clearly.

I remember reading somewhere that they just have the first line of the song ("Was a long and dark December") which they had left for a long time before revisiting it and developing it into Violet Hill.

I heard they had written the verses but took 10 years to write the chorus of Violet Hill.

 

I wonder if the title track of Parachutes is an unfinished track; the guitar tuning I believe is the same as Shiver and Yellow, so perhaps Chris was writing a 3rd song that sounded like the other 2.

 

Chris used to play a piano line at the end of LIJ in the second half of the MX tour that's thought to be a precursor to Fly On at least in terms of rhythm and overall feel.
