Coldplay | Yellow (Live 2003 at Sydney’s Hordern Pavilion)
Look at the stars
Look how they shine for you
And all the things that you do
If you stand up we’ll buy you all ice cream!
I was listening to this song on the way back to LA tonight. I’ve listened to this song a million times. I have it figured out, I know the subtle intricate details or quirks each musician puts together. I know what part Chris sings “myy loove” in the live version. The drum beat isn’t that distinct, the lyrics don’t seem to be too clear either (what does it mean to be yellow, anyway?) I mean Chris Martin wrote the lyrics to this while he was on the toilet for crying out loud. But its still perfect. I put it on once more, because it had been some time since I played Parachutes. And I felt back at home for some reason. It was such a comforting feeling, I can’t even describe it. Everything felt like it was in place if even for a short time.
I really, really love this band. Anyone can say what they want about them, loving them and sticking to it regardless of stupid jokes and criticism really helped me grow as a person. It might sound odd, but Coldplay helped me be real, and helped me continue to do me.
Ignoring of course, their collaboration with Rihanna. As far as I’m concerned that never happened. Ever. Do not bring that up with me.
