    Q. Hey Oracle, i have a very used up question, but i wanna hear the answer from you (since it's the first time i've entered Coldplay's webpage and this oracle thing i found it nice) even though i have my own opinion about it here it goes: why do you think people, media, etc. compares Coldplay with Radiohead repeatedly? i have real devotion for Radiohead and still in this past years i've discovered how good Coldplay is and i don't really think they can be compared at all, are two different kind of bands but not comparable. thanx!!

    The Oracle replies:

    Well Jeronimo, the band LOVE Radiohead and have openly admitted they have been influenced by them over the years. You can't hear that influence in every song but sometimes you can (Bigger Stronger, Twisted Logic, 42 for example). Coldplay would take it as a huge compliment to be compared but as you say, they are two different bands.

    Q. Dearest Oracle, a question just popped from my brain, is there any chance that Jonny will support Arsenal in the future? Well Redknapp is a gooner but he is Tottenham's manager at the moment so anything is possible, right?

    The Oracle replies:

    Personally I think a fan's loyalty runs a lot deeper than a player's so no, Jonny is not going to be defecting any time soon!

    Q. Hi there, I was wondering if Coldplay are going to be listing what the 30 shortlisted entries were. As an entrant myself, I think the competition was a good idea as never before have a band allowed its fans to interact with them by allowing them to make a video to one of their songs. Unfortunately, as ever there will be sour grapes from people, which is bad form as nobody has actually acknowledged the time you guys have had to spend looking through all of the entries to reach a decision. Well done Coldplay for such an original idea!

    The Oracle replies:

    The long list was shortlisted and yes, we're going to be publishing which films made it onto that list very soon.
