“Music Monday”:Coldplay’s best songs of all time (Part 14)

This is “Music Monday” and I always look at a band with some of their best music. I am currently looking at Coldplay’s best songs. Here are a few followed by another person’s preference:

My son Hunter Hatcher’s 7th favorite Coldplay song is  “Major Minus.” He notes, “Not sure what to think of this yet. It’s so up and then down and then back up again. It almost makes you think too hard. That’s the beauty of it.”

I was very interested in the first single that came out from Coldplay a few weeks ago, but this second single escaped my attention. Then recently my son Hunter told me all about this second song and he said that something in the song may be talking about God.
 
I told you guys earlier that in 2008 Coldplay and Chris in particular was on a spiritual search. I predicted that it would continue. With the song “Major Minus” we have some very interesting lyrics.

They got one eye on what you knew

And one eye on what you do
So be careful who it is you’re talking to

They got one eye on what you knew
And one eye on what you do
So be careful what it is you’re trying to do

And be careful when you’re walking in the view
Just be careful when you’re walking in the view!

Ooh-oooh-oooh
Ooh-oooh-oooh-ooh
Got one eye on the road and one on you!

Ooh-oooh-oooh
Ooh-oooh-oooh-ooh
Got one eye on the road and one on

They got one eye on what you knew
And one eye on what you do
So be careful ’cause nothing they say is true

But they don’t believe a word
It’s just us against the world
And we just gotta turn up to be heard 

Hear those crocodiles ticking ’round the world
Hear those crocodiles ticking (they go) ticking ’round the world

Ooh-oooh-oooh
Ooh-oooh-oooh-ooh
Got one eye on the road and one on you!
Ooh-oooh-oooh
Ooh-oooh-oooh-ooh
Got one eye on the road.

She can’t hear them climbing the stairs
I got my right side fighting
While my left eye’s on the chairs

Ooh-oooh-oooh
Ooh-oooh-oooh-ooh
Got one eye on the road and one on you!

Ooh-oooh-oooh
Ooh-oooh-oooh-ooh
Got one eye on the road and one on you

___________________________________

Here are the main points of the song.

1. Heaven is watching us constantly. (They got one eye on what you knew,And one eye on what you do)

2. We should be careful because what we do does matter to God. (And be careful when you’re walking in the view, Just be careful when you’re walking in the view!)

3. There are dangers in this world that you must avoid because they will eat you up.(Hear those crocodiles ticking ’round the world, Hear those crocodiles ticking (they go) ticking ’round the world )

4.Chris Martin’s plan is to keep one eye on the road ahead and one on the wife that he loves. (Got one eye on the road and one on you!)

These interpretations are based on the assumption that Chris is building on the theme of his last cd. We will have to wait and see what the rest of the cd sounds like. Feel free to share with me your thoughts.

1Viva la Vida

+34when I listen to viva la vida I feel like I’m the king. All the sensations and emotions in this song make you directly enter the song as if you are the king

+15it is absolutely brilliant! I am completely in love with this song. It is so powerful and has so much meaning to it. Cold play definitely is the best band out there! It can’t get any better!

+12This is a wonderful song. It’s perfect. Every single person can relate to this song. Really listen, listen to what they are trying to say. Viva la Vida is a great song, but for me this is the best of Coldplay’s.

The Scientist

+12above and beonde amazing this song reaches to yu and makes want to go to sleep and tough the sky and also if you are a guy that really likes to listen to songs that make you calm this is by far the one for you.

+10The emotion in this song is raw and uncensored, it tells an amazing and beautiful story. It’s original and calming ; yet there’s something in the lyrics that stirs up emotions and memories.

Yellow

5Yellow 

+14. . . its so emotional, really heart-felt, you can really tell Martin cares more about this song more than any of the others, and most importantly, it kickstarted COLDPLAY – it set the platform for all the other coldplay songs. . .!

+7oh god, I just dont understand how I lived me life up to now without this song just on in the background ❤ today me and my friends shared the love and walked around the school singing this and wow I was in heaven. let’s be honest here, whoever true song was to was lucky as to have a song like that – it is the themetune to my life ❤

+5by far the best song by coldplay… it needs to be at the top…
i bet anyone who listens to it once can leave it… he/she will have to listen it again and again…

In My Place

9In My Place 

+6This song made me cry with joy the first time I listened to it. One of the highlights of “A Rush Of Blood To The Head”

+4I don’t think many real fans voted here. They just simply went with the popualair ones.
This song is just amazing.

+3this is one of those songs I go straight to when I feel like I’m stuck in life and have nowhere to go, as if I really were “in my place”. the melody and the “oh’s” in the chorus are enough to make anyone feel how much the band sympathizes

More comments about In My PlaceListen to sample

Trouble

10Trouble 

+8words can’t explain. it deserves to be in the top 5 cmon people vote!

+7Simple piano playing equals a brilliant chorus or bridge? (great song in other words)

+6I don’t want to cause ‘trouble’, but this song deserves to be higher than tenth position…
