    Q. Heard a song today on XM Radio with Coldplay and Michael Stipe about God’s Love…What is the exact title and where can I find a copy of it ?? Thanks

    The Oracle replies:

    The track is called In the Sun. It was originally by Joseph Arthur but Michael chose it as the song to raise funds for Hurricane Katrina. It was released exclusively via iTunes back in February 2006 and you can still get it there.

    Q. As we all know, the free show on Brixton Academy in London was broadcasted so that everyone could “be there”. will any other show of Coldplay is going to be broadcasted? Please say yes!!!

    This Saturday (30th August) the band will perform an intimate show for Radio 2 at the BBC Theatre in London. It will be broadcast live on Radio 2 from 19.00. For more information about the show, transmission and band chats, visit the Radio 2 website.

    Q. Is true that exist a strong rivalry between Coldplay and Keane? Something similar to Blur vs. Oasis, or more friendly like Beatles vs. Rolling Stones?

    The Oracle replies:

    They are friends and mutual fans. It’s nothing more than healthy competition between bands. If we’re comparing it’s definitely more Beatles/Stones but not versus, more a &. There’s more than enough room for both don’t you think?

    Q. I read somewhere that Guy was the 4th richest man in the U.K. under the age of 30. Aren’t the other guys just as affluent, or does he just come from a wealthy family?

    The Oracle replies:

    It seems a little personal to me but as it was published what the heck… Guy is under 30 and the rest of the band are not, so there you go, simple explanation. [A few of us beg to differ]

    Q. Hey Oracle, I’m wanting to become an artist (musician) and get signed to a label. I have some songs recorded and was wondering whether I should share these on MySpace so that people can hear my music or whether I should send the songs I want to release to the labels first, before I put my songs on myspace? I want people to hear my music, but I also want to get signed. Can you help?

    The Oracle replies:

    Stick them up on MySpace but remember that unless you are out there gigging and getting a fan base the labels probably won’t get to hear of you. It would take a great amount of luck to be discovered on MySpace and get a deal as a result. To be perfectly frank, it rarely happens that you get signed by sending a demo to a label either. It’s hard work to build up a following and reputation and of course you have to be great at what you’re doing too.

    Q. I’ve heard rumors of Coldplay bring a globe from Parachutes with them on tour in the past, and I’ve seen them with an old tv set on stage for Viva La Vida. Is it a habit of theirs to bring props with them on tour? If so, what other objects have they brought along before, and is there some sort of meaning behind them? Thanks, Oracle.

    The Oracle replies:

    Back in the days of the Parachutes tour they did indeed have the globe lamp lit on the piano. They only had a backdrop in those days and a simple light show. These days there’s an elaborate set so there’s not what you’d call props. The globe was one of several that are now housed in a storage unit. The fact the globe became the cover for the Parachutes album was more of a last minute panic rather than a pre-determined decision.

    Q. Why the oracle do not answer questions on weekends???

    The Oracle replies:

    I don’t work 24/7 as I need time to do the laundry, deal with domestic matters and of course recharge my oracle batteries.
