  1. Really not sure why y'all think this song isn't finished or is lacking a Death and All His Friends climax? This isn't a song for the stadiums, it's a nice, gentle, somber closer that moves without being dramatic. With just enough of a glimmer of hope. It's a smooth, subdued finale that resigns itself to the quirks and frustrations of the thing it's titled after. And, unlike Coldplay's weakest songs, it never pretends to be something it's not. Just like everyday life, Everyday Life just simply exists, and that's what makes it beautiful. This isn't meant to be Fix You or Amsterdam part 2. Ins

  2. Who cares about how it performs as single? Cause you know who doesn't? Coldplay. They chose to release this song now because it obviously is special to them. Think people are missing the essence of the song for what it is. As for the song not having a big ending, they have done that plenty of times. Have you forgotten that they don't like repeating themselves? Sticking to the same formula with song structures gets boring after a while. Everyday Life is beautiful. I love it!

  3. the new track is very meh. it just doesn’t go anywhere or do much of anything, and the message and “hook“ are very on the nose. however i think it’s gonna make way more sense in context since it’s the last track of the record. i’m suspecting the second to last track is bombastic and all that was expected to happen at the end of everyday life and then everyday life closes out the album in a short/sweet and refreshing way. don’t know why they released this as a single though.

  5. A few positive and negative thoughts Pros -Orphans is really catchy, I quite like it. Great energy live too. Even Guy was visibly into it- a rare occurrence these days. -This title track is one of the few occasions I think the studio version is better than the live performance, but maybe they'll bring the full on strings/everything else for the Jordan performance of it. -I like Chris' shirt and the whole aesthetic of the era. Curious to see if they'll wear the tux/bowtie thing for concerts, or the more casual style like the SNL performance. Cons -The title track is beautiful, but I

  6. It’s fine. I don’t think it’s very Oldplay in an AROBTTH or X&Y sense, but it does a subtle Viva vibe with the strings etc. I think Arabesque skewed a lot of our expectations of this album. While I hope there will be more Arabesques than Everyday Life’s’ on the record I suspect a lot of the songs will sound like that. Not a bad thing by any means, at least it’s not X Marks the Spot or a duet with Beyoncé!

  7. Thank you very much for this thought. Everyday Life is not a bombastic song and it doesn't need to be. It's sentimental song of reflection to a likely sentimental album of reflection of the world today. I didn't even remember it was the closer when I first heard it. I just think it's a great song on its own. With it's beautiful lyrics and simplistic sounding music. You guys be trippin' here.

  8. This is gonna sound weird, but I love hearing imperfections in live performances. Makes it human and raw. If I wanted a carbon copy of the record, i'd stay at home and listen to it haha.

  9. Wow! Everyday Life is a truly special song, it gives me crazy VLV/AROBTTH vibes, The strings, the guitar, the piano, amazing song! It’s what we’ve been asking for for a couple of eras now, I am truly in love with it! On the other hand, the live performance of Orphans was INSANE! It sounds even more old-school live than it does in the album, it’s an incredible song as well, this is truly a very special era and I really can’t wait to see what the rest of the album sounds like but it seems to be the album we’ve all been asking for

  10. I love the lyrics and melodies of EL, especially Chris' piano! Jonny's guitar is stunning (as always). Will's backing vocals are wonderful. The more I listen to Everyday Life, the better it gets!!!

  11. I thought Chris’s voice was lovely in EL. Took me right back. Didn’t mind hearing a few vocal flaws in Orphans: as others have commented, I too welcome a bit of rawness and authenticity. Would love to hear more of what everyone thought of the song EL? I mostly enjoyed it. There were some dreamy aspects that made me think of Hypnotised. Thankfully as a piano ballad it is (IMO) better than Everglow, which I really disliked as too cheesy. Though it’s still slightly tending towards the cheesy direction, perhaps. Couldn’t help but smile at REM line ‘everybody hurts’, and what felt like a bit

  12. My opinion: Coldplay's "Imagine"! But let's get to there.... It's just a nice and beautiful little song, which closes the album. It has a really classic Coldplay feel to it, production is complete and not overdone. It's not going to be the big hit single in the current music scene and being the last song of the album, it probably is supposed to work much better after listening the whole album. Lack of climax? At first I felt the same with for example Always in my Head. I think we are associating Coldplay too much with massive climaxes and wait for these to happen, getting a bit disappo

  13. Idk, as I said in the other thread it is an artistic decision to not have that third massive chorus singing hallelujah, which is what we were expecting, and this era has thrown nothing but curveballs our way so far..... this might be a decision that ends up growing on me to be honest. That purposeful restraint might be a long term grower as opposed to the predictable massive ending that they usually do, and have done many times before. If we wanted them to try different things, this is a part of it and this is what we get. Not necessarily that experimental music has to sound good, the whole po

  14. Thanks for the videos. Don't have time to watch them right now but I will keep them for reference. Expecting to be very surprised, more than I thought I would. It's surprising to see that so many people are already acclaiming this heavily. Although Everyday Life isn't getting the same praise, which is baffling because it's supposed to be the melancholic Coldplay we all know so well. It's personally my favorite track yet, even if the second verse and the outro was cut short. Isn't arabesque from viva? I've heard (and seen) that older bands usually do that a lot, they rep

  15. I've been listening to the studio version of Everyday Life on repeat and honestly... wow. It's really beautiful. In terms of sheer beauty, it ranks up there with Gravity, Fix You, Fly On, Death And All His Friends, and the like. I adore the production. Jonny's E-bow especially steals the show here, it compliments those strings perfectly. The lyrics are beautiful, with what seems to be an REM reference (Everybody Hurts) in there. I still think the song ends too abruptly, but it all makes more sense to me in this studio version compared to the SNL performance. In time, this might end up being

  19. I bet this is from when I need a friend and if so I’m already tearing up ... photo came from coldplayxtra on Twitter .. this album is going to be amazing , and honestly I’ve never looked forward to a live performance as much as the one from Jordan I think it’s gonna be every emotion there is ..

  23. Really liking this whole era so far. I have yet to hear a disappointing song, and the boys seem somewhat relaxed and enjoying life. In less than a month we're getting a bucketload of new songs. What else is there to wish for? :cool:

  25. Easily my favourite song of the three. Very beautiful, might be in my top 5 favourite Coldplay songs. Sounds pretty timeless to me, the lyrics pretty emotional and touching imo, especially "Am I the future or the history" and "Everyone tells each other all kinds of lies" fit so well. A solid album closer, I think this works well even without a massive buildup. After Ghost Stories we haven't really gotten one of these more mellow/gloomy type songs, and I've really missed hearing this type of Coldplay. I tend to enjoy sadder Coldplay songs more than the upbeat stuff, so I'm very proud and happy

  26. Many people have done this already, but I really don't like to compare a new song with an (older) Coldplay song. The song is sooo beautiful, full of emotions and has an alternative sound. I think it's perfect the way it is! I might prefer something other than just "halleluja" for the lyrics during the outro but I think Chris sings it in a nice way. The first time he sang "halleluja" live I didn't even notice it until the 2nd time he sang "halleluja". I am not complaining, I love the song. Sounds a bit like the style of their earlier days with a modern twist and it is fan. tas. tic! :hea

  27. I’m quite surprised with everyone’s thoughts on this song .. honestly I thought it fit perfect as a close .. in this crazy messed up world we still have to go in in everyday life . And just gotta say halaluigh you’ve gotten to wake up for another day .. a very quite outtro but I really like it . Seems like an ending of all the thoughts we’ll get to hear when we hear the album as a whole . Maybe I’m to sentimental lol

  28. That performance was so so fun!!!! I love how half the performance was in the audience. Gosh I love how creative they are. Brilliant. I can't stop smiling :grinning: Can't wait til the next song....especially if it's a new one!

  29. Have to agree, after a few listens. I feel like this song could have been a huge 5 and a half minute long tear jerker, particularly at the end... It definitely feels like it's building towards something and doesn't quite get there. Must admit though, that string arrangement is gorgeous, and I really like that there's no big introduction of drums. We're yet to listen to the album so it may make a lot more sense in the scheme of it.

  33. Guys. I would love to go to the Jordan concert by all means and I get that people want to find out how to get tickets on the forum here. But maybe we are kind of missing the point. How great would it be if Coldplay got loads of people to the concert that haven’t got the money or possibility to go to a concert like this normally. We’ll get our tour here at some point. I hope that with this theme they’ve got for the albhm, they’ll go out and surprise people that normally wouldn’t have the chance to see bands like them. And then stream it to the rest of us so we can live it with them.

  36. Every first performance is rough. I remember when they debut Viva la Vida at an MTV show and it was awful. They didn't work out the live elements that we know today, and they were no doubt nervous about showing off their baby. The performances, I thought, were fine for what they were.

  37. Tend to disagree that nothing stands out. To me, it's the simplicity. Thinking about the many, many things that are going wrong in the world today this song captures the feeling of turning inside yourself wonderfully. Everday Life is an very heart-warming and esthetic song.

  39. Am I the future or the history? I think this lyric in EL will sum up this album. It’s going to be an effortless blend of Oldplay and Newplay.

  40. Still better than Army of One or A Sky Full Of Stars! It falls slightly flat for me in the sense it’s not as good as Gravity or DAAHF. The more I listen it sounds like an X&Y throwaway mixed with AHFOD style lyrics and a string arrangement thrown in for good measure. Not going to be groundbreaking in Coldplay’s discography but still, I’d rather an album full of songs like this than have another MX or AHFOD! The fact that a song released by Coldplay in 2019 is even being compared to X&Y is glorious.

  41. His voice definitely sounds so much better than it did throughout the AHFOD tour, that solid 2 year break really helped. They went straight from the GS tour to recording and touring AHFOD so no wonder his voice was cracking and sometimes off-key then.

  42. This is one of their best closers! I don't think it needs anything else longer. It's just the way it is. It's a philosophical reflection of everyday life at the end of the day, calling out for hope into the next one... as a kind of mental prayer.

  43. Not my favourite song on the album but I think it's beautiful! I was feeling sad and I had fallen asleep and suddenly woke up 10 minutes after it was uploaded on youtube. The first thing I did when I woke up was to listen to Everyday Life and let me tell you listening to it was a sweet and exciting way to wake up :blush: I just love that they made songs that they really like and I appreciate their work in this album :heart:

  48. This has changed before, but after I finally got to see the band live for the first time in 2016, my favorite has been Fix You. Absolutely stunning, it blew me away more than any other song in that set... and there were several other songs that were strong contenders for best song of the night. And I've never really heard a bad version of the song from any other era. The song is amazing on X&Y, but it's something else live.
