    Q. Hi Oracle, nice reading you can speak a spot of German. Still, I continue writing in English ;-) Btw. did you hear The White Stripes broke up? Sad isn't it?! Regards, Helmut

    The Oracle replies:

    To be honest I wouldn't have noticed if they hadn't made an official announcement. It's so long since they did anything together and The Raconteurs more than held my attention being as I am such a big Brendan Benson fan. With Jack doing the Bond theme without Meg and creating The Dead Weather... I wasn't shocked or saddened. I hope I don't get hit by a thunderbolt for this but I never rated Meg as a drummer anyway. OUCH!

    Q. Dear Oracle, someone said this was Chris, is it right?

    The Oracle replies:

    Ha ha ha I LOVE you guys. No, this is not Chris. Well it may be a Chris, but it's certainly not "our" Chris! I wonder who it is...?

    Q. How's Chris about all this situation?

    The Oracle replies:

    I know I have a reputation to know everything but give us a clue love...

    Q. How many languages do you speak?

    The Oracle replies:

    I speak two languages fluently; English and the universal language of love. (Un peu de Francais aussi, un poco de Espanol und Ich spreche ein bisschen Deutsch).

    Q. Where in the heck has Roadie 42 been? I need some updates on the band and upcoming album...

    The Oracle replies:

    I shall be able to find that out tomorrow as #42 and I will be crossing paths.

    Q. Dear Oracle, Please help me! I'm 19 years old and I have a brother who is 25 and a sister who is 27. We live just outside of New York City and the prices of apartments are very high so my siblings still live at home. Recently, my brother has been dating a 33 year old woman who sends him gifts in the mail and is always at my house! My brother has never had a girlfriend, is very shy, quiet and sweet. Me and my sister are afraid that this woman is using him because he's young, has a good job, and comes from a good family. We told him how we feel but he continues to bring her to our house. Please tell me what you think and what I can do to stop this. We want to stop it before things get too serious. Love, Kate

    The Oracle replies:

    Forgive me Kate for my bluntness but you say you "want" to stop this... what about what your brother wants? Quite frankly you both need to butt out of his love life. I understand feelings of protectiveness when someone is being hurt but you don't mention if he is. Your brother is not a child & he doesn't need protecting from a 33 year old woman. You make the age gap between them sound like a problem yet it isn't that big - not much more than between you and him. What makes you think she is using him? Have you ever considered that she may actually love your brother? How would you feel if your siblings were saying these things to you about someone you care for? Those are questions to ask yourself. Personally I would be happy that my brother had found someone he wanted to be with with who buys him gifts so I'm not sure why you don't feel the same but one could argue there are possibly some jealousy or possessiveness issues that need addressing.

    Q. Dear Oracle, I was just listening to Coldplay's B-side The Goldrush and I know Will sings in the beginning of the song but who is singing round 1:21 till 1:39 my guess though is Jonny. Would you be able to enlighten me? JJ

    The Oracle replies:

    There's so much going on in that song. Around the 1'21 mark it sounds more like Jonny to me but it's not that easy to tell as you can hear Brian Eno as well as Chris & Jonny talking, laughing and singing.

    Q. Dear Oracle! I want to go to a festival to see Coldplay this summer. I've been at two Coldplay shows, and I loved it! Amazing! But I feel somewhat awkward being the only person over 50 at a festival... Please what shall I do?

    The Oracle replies:

    What makes you think you'd be the only person over 50 at a festival? All I can say is that you probably won't be but if you are, don't feel awkward; music isn't ageist even if you think that people are...

    Q. Do the band have any view on the death of John Barry?

    The Oracle replies:

    It is very sad news indeed that John Barry died. There's a link in Hypnofeed to a clip of one of his songs. I had been listening to his compositions quite a lot recently as I am such a fan of his work; as are the band who went to see him back in 1999 at the Royal Albert Hall. They were taken by their music publishers BMG (now Universal) during their courtship prior to signing.

    Q. If I want to submit an original compositon for Coldplay, who should I contact and where should I send it to?

    The Oracle replies:

    I'm afraid the band don't accept work by other artists. If as a songwriter you were considering sending any material to anyone else bear in mind that unsolicited work is not generally accepted. There are routes you could try; perhaps music publishers or performers who do not write their own songs.

    Q. Hi. I found

    and I can't find a full version of that live event, can you please give me some link where I can watch whole song.

    The Oracle replies:

    As previously mentioned that was a show performed at the Round Chapel, Hackney on 19th April 2005. There doesn't appear to be one link to In My Place though...However it was broadcast on MTV 6th June 2005.

    Q. Hi Oracle... What's the name of the first song that sing Chris and Gary in Gary's Birthday? Thanks, Saludos de Mexico

    The Oracle replies:

    They only duetted on one song - Take That's Back for Good.

    Q. Greetings Oracle, I'm having some relationship issues and I need some advice. My ex broke up with me like 2 days after our 6 month anniversary and it's been hard on me. I've been looping Christmas Lights and Fix You on my iPod for the past 3 weeks to no avail. We still talk and I miss her a lot and she says she misses me but at times I feel as if I loved her for nothing. She asked me out a day before my birthday and she broke up with me after our 6th month together. I'm kinda lost now and I hope you reply. Billy

    The Oracle replies:

    The majority of break-ups are hard so it's no wonder you're suffering Billy. You say that you've been looping those two songs "for 3 weeks to no avail", well I don't know what miracle you were expecting but that is only going to make it worse.

    My advice is to stop listening to those songs right now and any others that remind you of her or make you miss her even more. I'd also suggest you cut all contact with her. It may feel like it's helping but trust me, in the long run it isn't. A clean break will help YOU move on with your life. There may be a time in the future where you can be friends but now, while you are hurting is not the time. It's difficult not to relate everything to the significant dates of your birthday and anniversary but tell yourself it's actually irrelevant, the pain would be the same if it had been a random Tuesday. The worst part of all this is that no-one can make it better so it really is a case of having to ride that wave or sit it out; but either way it's going nowhere. Time will make the pain ease but be prepared, it could take a long time. You will have good days and bad. Do what you can to help yourself. Surround yourself with friends and do things that you like doing. Don't spend too much time wallowing in your sadness. Be sad - of course - but don't be consumed. It's a grieving process so I am not suggesting you ignore it or try and rush through but there is no quick fix. It may feel way too soon to hear me say that you will get over this but... you will. Hang in there, you're not alone. It's something that so many of us can relate to and we're here to tell the tales.
