  1. @I ran away - Cool thread! Yeah I've heard about Vitamins! One of several songs recorded during the Sync City sessions with Nikki Rosetti. Honestly, I like the production of those earlier songs (Bigger Stronger, etc.) more than for the Blue Room. Can't believe the sound they achieved having barely recorded music before.
  2. Woah I never knew that! I figured it had something to do with the recording studio.
  3. This pandemic has got me very nostalgic for the past. I discovered Coldplay when they released AROBTTH. I can still remember watching The Scientist music video on MTV, and from then on, I was hooked. Up after that, I grabbed Parachutes, and then the Brothers and Sisters EP. I scoured the early 2000’s internet for whatever other b-sides and rarities I could find. I loved their early sound so much. Which is why the one part of Coldplay’s history that’s always intrigued me is the Blue Room EP. So little is known about this era, other than Will quit at some point (because recording was too hard, they couldn’t get along with the producer, etc.), and then they completely changed course after that. This was the Coldplay that could have been. This was the Coldplay the band themselves and Phil want you to forget about (see here). This was the Coldplay true fans yearn for. To look back on simpler times, I created a playlist of all the recordings known to have originated during the Blue Room sessions that I’m dubbing the (Real) Blue Room EP: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL8EM_b8sYIzwTvW2CbrRAOJkM7Noe4j32 Track list: Don’t Panic Spies See You Soon High Speed We Never Change Spies is taken from the “Flavor of the Label” CD released in mid-1999, right after they were signed to Parlophone. If you listen closely during the bands interview with Jo Whiley for Parachutes’ 20th anniversary, Will mentions the drum part for Spies was particularly hard for him to get right. Given it was one of the first songs recorded during the Blue Room sessions, I’m willing to bet you this was the song the band broke up over. We Never Change is the atmospheric version alleged by Chris Allison (the producer at the time) to exist in storage, which I tried to recreate by overlaying the (purported) backtrack already floating around on the internet with the live debut of the song from March 1999. Surprisingly, they match up very well….. Enjoy it (while it lasts)! p.s. Does anyone know what Blue Room refers to?
  4. Thanks again for writing this out for everyone...but if you would can you do me a favor? I want to sing and play this at the same time but its hard for me to get in the range of chris's voice. Do you think you can possbily transcibe it back into the key of the chords that i had originally given you? I believe its in C major, and that way It would also correlate with the real song. Chris plays his is Ab major. thanks!
  5. these arent the exact chords chris plays but i transposed the first part so it sounds like his. the progression is: Cmaj7 Am7 Dm7 F7 Em7 if someone can transpose this back to chris's version thatd be ace!
  6. Haha ok so I know everyone is caught up in all this X&Y hype but I wanted to take a break from it for a second..... Anyways this might've been on here before but idk. I really like Coldplay's version of Have yourself a merry little christmas, and I know it's nowhere near christmas, but I wanted to know where I can find the piano muisc for their cover or if anyone knows if this is an actual version or stuff Chris something up for it? I've searched most music sites but nothing has come up. Sorry if this is a pointless thread but I'd really like to know. Also this is kind of off topic but I don't live in the UK so I can't buy the Sos single and I was wondering if anyone can send me the song Proof because I have the live version and it's amazing.....Thanks! :cool:
  7. Hey can someone please send me the mp3 for Proof? The live version is kickass and I would love to hear the studio version. Thanks! [email protected]
