    Classic Clip: Coldplay Perform Daylight On Top Of The Pops (2002)

    Piano-led 'Daylight' is track 6 from Coldplay's sophomore album 'A Rush Of Blood To The Head'. This album had greater use of piano than Coldplay's debut album or most other rock bands popular at the time. The use of piano on A Rush of Blood has been subsequently credited with influencing the sound of bands such as Keane and Athlete, although this was in dispute at the time.


    Daylight has a wobbly Eastern guitar intro - think Love-era Cult, Porcupine-era Echo & The Bunnymen. Another burrowing hook that fleshes itself out as the song progresses. This song was first played live in 2002 at Queen's Hall, Edinburgh, and recently re-introduced at the Latin America Tour of 2007.


    Top of the Pops, also known as TOTP, was a long-running British music chart television programme, made and broadcast by the BBC. It was originally shown each week, mostly on BBC One, from 1 January 1964 to 30 July 2006. Each weekly programme consisted of performances from some of that week's best-selling popular music artists.


    Top of the Pops has also been made available to television broadcasters in many different countries in the form of a franchise package. However, after some success, the majority of these have now also been cancelled.
