    Q. Dear Oracle, Could you please clarify this for me once and for all so that I may rest peacefully. What is the intro music to Coldplay's 2003 tour concerts. Most people claim it's a piece from Eno's Apollo album but I don't think they've ever actually heard that album because there is no part that sounds like that. Thank you!

    The Oracle replies:

    The band did indeed use Eno's music from the film For All Mankind before they took to the stage. However, Apollo: Atmospheres and Soundtracks was the album released 6 years earlier that largely soundtracked the movie. The actual piece the boys walked on to is called

    Q. I love the Exhibition Room, I just wish it had a place for poetry. Do you think the site might do that in the future?

    The Oracle replies:

    Feel free to record your own poem and upload it to YouTube. You could use a static photo as a backdrop. There have been songs sent and displayed that way and so there's no reason you can't do the same with poetry...

    Q. What do you think of the artist Imogen Heap?

    The Oracle replies:

    It's no co-incidence that today is Imogen's birthday - happy birthday to her!

    Funny you should ask this question when just a week ago Chris was commenting on how amazing she is. After hearing and buying Jason DeRulo's single,

    , which features Imogen Heap's goosebump inducing Hide and Seek as the main refrain, Chris purchased the original also.

    Q. Hi Oracle! I read a text that says "Coldplay will become yellow for the Simpsons toons"... really?? And the voices are the same of the member of Coldplay??

    The Oracle replies:

    As the new season has kicked off a few of you have asked for verification on this point. Yes the band appear as themselves in the new season of The Simpsons but only Chris speaks. Anchorman is sure to remind us all when it's airing...
