    Q. I own a copy of Coldplay's Mince Spies CD. How many other people own this CD?

    The Oracle replies:

    It was limited to a 1000 copies but that doesn't mean that 999 other people own it. For instance I have 2 and there are a few stray copies. [that make two of us! ed.] Still, fewer than 1000 people with a copy does make this a highly collectible and rare item.

    Q. Am I Coldplay's oldest fan at 51 yrs?

    The Oracle replies:

    I hear from fans of all ages but you're a good many years off the oldest fan. In fact, you're not even OLD! Personally I know fans of 70 but am sure that they're not the oldest either!

    Q. I know that it is very very short notice but PRETTY PLEASE say you can help me.... My son turns 8 on July 24th and all he wanted for his birthday was to go see COLDPLAY! I was so proud and impressed being that most 8yr olds want Tonka trucks and video games. And it thrilled me that the STL concert was in fact ON his bday. Anyway last week when I purchased our tickets to the show I inquired about how to get backstage passes to meet the band and they informed me that passes are distributed through affiliation with the band and are mainly promoted through the radio stations. How can I make this possible? Is there ANY way I can purchase or receive them and make my son's birthday even more memorable?

    The Oracle replies:

    I'm wishing a very happy 8th birthday to your little man Sarah. Unfortunately backstage passes aren't for sale. You're not the first to ask so all I can say to try and explain is this... imagine if everyone who wanted one, got one? There'd be more folk backstage that out front! Plus as you say, asking on the day of the show is VERY short notice even if it were possible. He will have a great time though.

    Q. My question is pretty simple: does the extra instrumental piece at the end of Yes have a name?

    The Oracle replies:

    The song that directly follows Yes is called Chinese Sleep Chant but it isn't instrumental. There are 3 tracks that segue into another and register as one song:

    Lovers In Japan/Reign Of Love

    Yes/Chinese Sleep Chant

    Death & All His Friends/The Escapist

    Q. Hello wonderful Oracle! I have a question. I've been told that the song Fix You was written in honour of the London bus bombings in 2005. Is this true?? Thank you in advance!

    The Oracle replies:

    This is a common belief due to the start of the video being set in London shortly after the atrocities took place. It was written well before this though but is in fact very apt as the theme of the song is loss and grief.

    Q. Oracle, I just got braces today, and they hurt like crazy. Plus, they look terrible. Can you say something that will encourage me to get through the week?

    Love, Jackie <3 <3

    The Oracle replies:

    They're bound to hurt at first while you get used to them and don't worry about how they look, just imagine how your teeth will be when they're removed!

    I've mentioned it here before and hopefully this will cheer you up; Chris wore braces for a while too and so he can empathize with your situation but it's not forever so be brave and confident and that should see you through.

    Q. Does the song Anxiety Of You See belong to Coldplay? Because I can find the lyrics of the song, and it says that it's a Coldplay song, but I can't find the song to hear it. Please I need some help with this =(. Thanks

    The Oracle replies:

    Having seen the lyrics I can assure you that this is not a Coldplay song.

    Q. Where can I get Gravity?

    The Oracle replies:

    Coldplay's version of Gravity is available on the Talk single. Embrace released it as their single from their 4th studio album; Out Of Nothing. Coldplay had been performing it live prior to this and it wasn't included on any album. It was then given to Embrace who gained a number 7 on the UK charts with it.
