I just don't get it why they would make such an unfair poll. They have such a clever marketing team and now they're trying to compete a mega rare song from their first album with 4 of the biggest songs of their career. Surely they know "the masses" will vote for one of those and gives Sparks no chance of success. For me, it seems that it's just "symbolic" to give the old fans the idea they still care about the older music and act like they truly give it an equal chance. And we all know it won't happen this way :(

Coldplay Twitter posting article about Everyday Life being a potential contender for the Grammy's album of the year, which would be nominated well over a year the album came out... not sure if it's el

Well, for me Coldplaying is another common room where I can hang out, thus, I'm here so often! But I'm convinced that there are other users who would be more responsible and conscientious as moderator

The other day I received a physical copy of the Japanese edition of Everyday Life. I was surprised to discover that it was different from the regular version, which I had purchased before, in another

The choice of songs given also seems strange to me.

 

If you’re going to put Viva up there why not Yellow? ASFOS why not AOAL? Sparks is the odd one out on that list.

 

The vote share for Sparks is going up though.

I've said this in a couple other places too, but I feel like Violet Hill, ALIENS, and Politik would have been three much better songs to add to the poll as they seem to fit the theme of Everyday Life a lot better than any of the other songs listed. SJLT and ASFOS especially just seem thematically out of place to me.

Well, sorry to say, but that's democracy.

I voted for Sparks.

Put in my vote for Sparks. Gosh I'd be so excited if it won.

 

Lol honestly why is included? It almost feels like Coldplay put that there as joke given 90% of new fans probably couldn't hum sparks if they were asked. But then also maybe it's lowkey Coldplay seeking affirmation and hoping people still like Parachutes. Either way, really gave me a chuckle to see this poll. It's like, "What would you like performed live? Our catchy indie bop, Magic? Our biggest hit ever, Viva La Vida? Our modern EDM-inspired bangers? Or how about our all-time quietest, most introspective song?'

Sparks is my favorite song from Parachutes and in my top 10 Coldplay songs. I'm glad they chose it but I'm also not surprised. Guy and Will did an interview a few years back (2017?) where they were asked their favorite album and their favorite song. One chose VlVoDaAHF and a song from ARoBttH and the other chose the reverse, ARoBttH and a song from VlVoDaAHF. I think most of the band (except maybe Chris) know their old music was incredible. I'm guessing it's part of why Arabesque is still around (being from Viva).

I had another dream about the album last night, after dreaming about Sunrise a couple weeks ago. Can't remember exactly which of the new songs we haven't heard yet was which, but one of them totally sounded like something from Parachutes and one sounded a bit like a slower version of Lost! with less percussion.

 

I really liked what I heard, fingers crossed... I was actually fairly spot on back in 2015 when I had a dream about AHFOD (the song) before it came out, I dreamt it was an uptempo stadium rock anthem with Chris singing lots of "whoaaaas." :D

 

Guys... I can't believe no one is voting for "Sparks" on their YouTube poll... I mean don't get me wrong I'm glad VLV is winning but how ASFOS is second over Sparks... I'm blown away haha! I'd love to see them play a modern live rendition of Sparks.

It’s like the whole send in your request thing for the last tour all over again. :expressionless:

Y'all are spot-on... I don't think Sparks has a chance at all, at least they are acknowledging its existence but this is probably just gonna be the AHFOD tour audience request thing all over again.

 

I voted for Sparks but at least Viva has a chance and fits the vibe of this era more than Magic, ASFOS, and SJLT.

VOTE FOR SPARKS EVERYONE.

 

Since the Coldplay fandom saw the poll, the percentage went from 10% up to 20%, it's currently 2nd but ASFOS is very close and casual fans/casual viewers will vote for it, so keep voting to make sure Sparks at least stays 2nd. There might be a chance the band will play two songs.

 

Btw - do I like Sparks more than Viva ? No, absolutely not.

 

But do I want Sparks to win this poll ? Absolutely yes. A rare opportunity to make a point to the band that we care about and cherish older album tracks !!

Sad to see Sparks being put up against their big hits, they must have known before they put it up that it would lose because of the casual fans who have never heard of it. I have 5 YouTube accounts (don't ask why) so I'll vote once with each one.

Yep!!! The illusion of fan interaction and a chance at a rare track played live, until it becomes obvious they'll play In My Place and Til Kingdom Come every night for eternity no matter what.

I totally voted for Sparks. I have seen all the other songs live - Sparks would be so special because I missed Parachute era concerts but I was a fan during Parachutes era.

 

Even if it doesn't win first if we can get it to second, they should play it.
