Here are the top 10 songs by Coldplay-
Look at the Stars
Look How They Shine for You
When everything feels a mess and you lose all the self-love you have, Yellow helps you to cheer up and feel loved again. That is the magic behind Coldplay’s songs, they make you feel that even if everything is not okay at the moment, somewhere out there, someone has your back at all times.
Yellow is one such song. With comforting and meaningful lyrics, Yellow is probably one of the most beautiful songs recorded by the band.
The love and devotion of the person behind the music are what all of us crave in our life.
2. We Never Change
I want to live life and always be true
And I want to live life and be good to you
The singer initially says that he wants to be honest and be good to people, but then he goes on to sing, ‘we never change, do we.’ The lyrics appear to demonstrate the enormous efforts required to be something as simple as good.
Even if it seems easy to say that everyone should be good and honest and live a life that they desire, it is actually quite hard to leave our habits.
The lyrics further declares that even after intending to do good, the person ends up sinning every day without achieving any good deed.
The simplicity of the song and the complexity of the emotions makes We Never Change an extraordinary creation.
3. The Scientist
Tell me your secrets and ask me your questions
Oh, let’s go back to the start
The Scientist details the situation of a person in love who is afraid of losing his lover. The powerlessness that one feels while falling in love is expressed in the song.
As soon as the person he adores leaves; the singer is left thinking how hard it is to part from her.
The lyrics further go, “Nobody said it was easy No one ever said it would be so hard,” to describe the person’s emotions.
4. Fix You
Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you
When you have failed in your life, Fix You is the song you need.
Fix You interprets the void felt by a person who is stuck in a place from where it is hard to escape and on the contrary, it also reveals that when such a situation arrives, you will find the person who loves you near you.
If life ever gets hard and you have no one by your side, remember to listen to this song to feel good, if only for a few moments.
5. Hymn For The Weekend
Oh, angels sent from up above
You know you make my world light up
When I was down, when I was hurt
You came to lift me up
Hymn For The Weekend is about meeting a person so special that it feels like you are cared for by an ‘angel.’
The song has the potential to lighten up your mood and energize you with its upbeat music and of course, this was a collaboration with Beyonce.
The music video has a lot of surprises for you as it was filmed in our own country and has portrayed Indian culture. Hymn For The Weekend is like wine; the older it gets, the better it sounds!
6. Something Just Like This
I’m not lookin’ for somebody
With some superhuman gifts
Some fairy-tale bliss
Just something I can turn to
Somebody I can miss
The song, a collaboration between Coldplay and The Chainsmokers, is something else entirely. All of us love fantasies and superheroes, legends and folklores, but when it comes to loving someone in the real world, none of the superficial characters actually matters to us.
The song is an embodiment of that same emotion, where the person does not care if her partner is gifted, strong, bold like a superhero.
She just wants an ordinary human who can be there for her when she needs him.
7. My Universe
There’s a paradise they couldn’t capture
That bright infinity inside your eyes
The most recent song released by Coldplay from their ninth studio album Music of the Spheres and guess what?
It features BTS! The blend of Korean with English and the highs and lows of the song makes it even more addictive.
The sheer beauty of the lyrics describes the person they love as their universe; sometimes all we want is to be the person Coldplay sings for.
In the night the stormy night, she’ll close her eyes
In the night the stormy night away she’d fly
As children, all of us plan things we will achieve when we grow up. Those dreams become our paradise because we end up forgetting them in the chaotic mess of life.
The problems hurled at us from all sides and the drawbacks we confront make us overlook the dreams we once weaved. Paradise is dedicated to all those unachieved dreams that we reminisce about once in a while to escape from the reality of this world.
Trust me, at one point, you will feel like crying after realising how unpredictable life can be.
9. Charlie Brown
So we’ll soar
Luminous and wired
We’ll be glowing in the dark
This song is a tribute to all the silly nights with your friends when you used to run away from home for a while to have fun and go crazy!
The song is all about that feeling of being free and happy, of going wild and having fun with people and living the life you want!
When that happens, it almost appears as if the person is shining because of the happiness that replenishes them and lights them up!
10. A Sky Full of Stars
‘Cause you’re a sky, ’cause you’re a sky full of stars
I’m gonna give you my heart
The person we adore truly appears to us as a sky full of stars. All the imperfections within that human disappear and all we see is a perfect person for whom we can give up the entire world.
A Sky Full of Stars is about that same unconditional love that does not even expect anything in return.
