    Q. Is there such a thing as Mince Spies?

    The Oracle replies:

    There is if you mean a limited edition CD that the band gave away to fans at Christmas 2001. It featured two tracks: Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas and Yellow (Alpha Remix).

    Q. Dear Oracle.. Did Chris write the piano riff in Homecoming, a song in which he collaborated with Kanye West?

    The Oracle replies:

    The song originally featured vocals by John Legend. Chris met Kanye at Abbey Road Studios in February 2006 when the band were recording a special BBC Radio 2 show. They jammed together as Kanye was recording his album there. This led to the re-recorded version which Chris' vocals and fingers appear on.

    Q. Hey Oracle!! Well I want to ask you about the reaction that you think we (the world) will have about the recent Michael Jackson news.... the pop will never be the same?? Or someday we will just forget it and continue our lives with new artist and that kind of stuff... thanks...

    The Oracle replies:

    This has been a hot topic the past few days. Personally I think Michael's best work had been and gone and we will always have that. His legacy lives on in his music and with such a fantastic back catalogue of songs, he will never be forgotten. He won't be replaced much as John Lennon hasn't been; some artists could never be and MJ is one of them.
