Coldplay is one of the biggest bands right now and rightfully so because their music is awesome. There are very few bands or musicians that are true to themselves and their music and Coldplay is one of them. Their every song is creative and different and they are not afraid to experiment, but they still have that Coldplay touch to every song they create. Which is truly beautiful.
One of the things that made them so famous and respected is their originality and simplicity. Original lyrics and music is something that isn’t seen so much in the pool of pop songs that are made nowadays, even the songs that are top of charts don’t sound much different than other pop songs out there. But Coldplay makes all different. Their lyrics and the creativity in their simple but mesmerizing music makes them a delight to hear (and also see). Songs like Fix You, The Scientist, Yellow, Viva La Vida and many more are outstanding to say the least. They are just truly amazing.
Talking about seeing, what to say about their amazingly creative videos! I have seen many creative music videos but Coldplay make them so simple and so connected to the song that both the audio with the video becomes one huge treat. For example, their latest video song Up&Up from their latest album A Head Full Of Dreams, is, speechless! I’m sure there would be people out their who wouldn’t agree to me or say some other video(s) are much better than this but I’m a Coldplay fan and I love them.
Talking about my favorite song, it’s definitely Fix You. All their songs are great but it’s this song that can make you cry and smile at the same time no matter how many times you listen to it. The slow start and the amazing pickup with the amazingly touching lyrics ‘Tears stream..’, is just mind blowing. I don’t know how can someone write such a beautiful lyrics and create such a beautiful melody that makes even the strongest of men cry (or just me :P). But the part where Chris sings the last ‘Lights will guide you home’ part and the audience sings along (in the video), well, who can stop themselves from crying right ;). More than the original song I love the live version played by them in Paris in 2012. Check it out, and make sure you don’t cry. ;)
Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you
I love Coldplay and will always do, but I haven’t still seen them live and it would be a wish come true if I could just see them once performing somewhere, anywhere on Earth before they officially retire and stop creating beautiful music, and that would be one of the saddest day not only in my life but also everyone who love them so much. I wish they never do.
Till then, enjoy Coldplay and their everlasting music as long as you can and always be happy and Believe in Love because there will always be someone who will try to Fix You. :)
