    I don't know if everyone heard the 2nd song, but it was massive here in the 90's

    Creative process of cold play:
    Research for hits outside USA and uk, not very massive but with catchy melodies, then copy, make it sound like well produced and voila

    I heard both songs this morning and it's sad, this is what music is coming to nowadays. This is exactly why I hate so mainstream artists. I liked coldplay when they first came out but I don't care for them anymore. No originality, no creativity.

    I suppose there are only so many chord progressions that will actually sound good...

    I dont believe any of it.

    I domt think Coldplay need to nick other peoples stuff.

    Coincidence and, maybe a tune gets stuck in someones head and it ends up influencing them during the writing process.

    I just dont think Coldplay need to copy people. If you dont like Coldplay (i dont imagine many do on DJTT) thats cool but they have made some good indie/pop. I mean, you may not like the tune "Yellow" but its a classic song that millions love. I just dont think they are that dried up or talentless to copy stuff.

    forgot who said it: good artist create, great artist steal.

    Not at all saying Coldplay is great, I find them boring, but that seems to be the rule for creatives in many fields.
