    Q. The other day I saw Coldplay's "Live at BBC". There I saw that when they played Viva la Vida they showed a TV where you could see the guys playing violins and similar instruments. Do they really know how to play them?

    The Oracle replies:

    The guys are not really playing the string section of that song. The TV clip is just a visual prop. That said Will is a multi-instrumentalist and can play the violin.

    Q. The word "applicable"... is the accent on the "i" or on the second "a"? My fiance and I tiff over this often. The best way to settle this, we figured: we say it however Chris Martin says it. Please settle this score for us, o'wise one!

    The Oracle replies:

    Oh you definitely want to leave the second a alone! You can either put the accent on the first a or the plic. I hope you and your fiancee no longer tiff over it, or should I say your husband...as of tomorrow! Congratulations and have a wonderful wedding.

    Q. Hello dear and loved Oracle. What means Coldplay, literally, what means? God bless you and bless me.

    The Oracle replies:

    There isn't a translation for Coldplay as a singular word. It was made by putting the two words cold and play together. As previously mentioned the name originates from Phillip Horky's book: Child's Reflections, Cold Play. If you do translate cold and play though that wouldn't give you a clearer meaning into the band name as there isn't one!
