    Q. Could you give me some insight into the title I Bloom Blaum?

    The Oracle replies:

    I can Tim, yes. The day after Coldplay played a gig in Iceland; there was a review in a local paper. Chris thought it said I Bloom Blaum and asked a friend what it meant. He said it meant 'the blue people' but in fact the paper hadn't said I Bloom Blaum at all that's just what Chris remembered it as. So I Bloom Blaum doesn't mean anything! FYI: Simon Pegg told Chris to call the song that.

    Q. Oracle, Coldplay.com has just announced their nominations for three Ivor awards. That's fantastic, but why did you not mention that The Escapist was nominated for best original film score? Seeing as how Coldplay contributed to it, certainly you'd tell us?

    The Oracle replies:

    A film's musical score is not the same as the soundtrack. Coldplay contributed to the soundtrack but not to the film's original score.

    Q. I have been told that The Scientist was written in dedication to one of Chris Martin's girlfriends who died.

    The Oracle replies:

    Nope, a friend of the band who had broken up with his girlfriend inspired it.
