Coldplay is the band that brought me out of my spiritual journey. I accidentally heard one of their songs somewhere and I wanted more. It was their debut album Parachutes that drew me in and the song was “Yellow“. I really do not need to listen to this album to score it, but I will because of the memories.
How do you decide which songs are you favourite from a perfect album? I will try, but I love the whole album. Chris Martin has a beautiful voice. I love his falsetto. My favourite songs are “Don’t Panic“, “Sparks”, “Yellow”, “Trouble“, and “Spies”.
I came along
I wrote a song for you
And all the things you do
And it was called “Yellow”
Ironically, Coldplay is celebrating 20 years of Parachutes this week. I still get all the same feelings I had 20 years ago when I first listened to this album. Martin vocals, the bands musicianship, and the touching lyrics all add up to perfection. 10/10.
