Eliminated:



3. Yellow (13/36 votes, 36.11%)
It was looking like winning a few rounds ago, but that closeness is just too much to bear and Yellow gets the bronze medal. Released as the second single from Parachutes, it was really the song that started 'it' all if we interpret 'it' as bigger things than lower top 40 singles, Yellow received heavy rotation and usage in various media, it reached the top 5 over here, top 50 in the US. Co-produced by Ken Nelson, the song was written when asking the band to look up at the stars and the most memorable line was born and the rest of the song was put together by Chris' friend, Stephanie, who he had seen at the time and was looking for a colour to fit the songs concept, so he named it Yellow in reference to her 'yellow' glow, there was no other significance of the colour and the lyrics ended up making very little sense, but it stuck and the song has a loose meaning of a bright hopeful and devoted song with various actions that show the depths of Chris' unrequited love. Also notable for its video featuring an entire take of Chris on his own walking up the beach in slow motion using a telecine process to have night transfer to day throughout the video. They'd go on to have more creative ideas but this is a subtle and nice beginning to that. It has been covered many times, including very recently by Jodie Whittaker and a Chinese language cover for the film, Crazy Rich Asians, and remains one of their most well known and highly thought of songs. I won't lie that amongst the top 5, it's probably my least favourite, but that's only due to the strength of what's around it. I have only positive feelings towards it. It's a lovely, bright yet also melancholy listen and still sounds wonderful twenty years on.

3. Yellow (13/36 votes, 36.11%)
4. Clocks (10/32 votes, 31/25%)
5. Viva la Vida (7/27 votes, 25.93% (12/22 votes in tiebreak))
6. In My Place (12/28 votes, 42.86%)
7. Trouble (12/26 votes, 48%)
8. Paradise (7/23 votes, 30.43%)
9. Speed of Sound (9/34 votes, 26.47%)
10. Talk (11/27 votes, 40.74%)
11. Violet Hill (6/26 votes, 23.08%)
12. Every Teardrop is a Waterfall (6/28 votes, 21.43%)
13. Midnight (7/25 votes, 28%)
14. Adventure of a Lifetime (10/28 votes, 35.71%)
15. Magic (7/29 votes, 24.14%)
16. A Sky Full of Stars (6/24 votes, 25%)
17. Princess of China (8/33 votes, 25.81%)
18. Orphans (9/28 votes, 32.14%)
19. Hymn for the Weekend (10/26 votes, 38.46%)
20. God Put a Smile Upon Your Face (12/38 votes, 32.43%)
21. Charlie Brown (10/34 votes, 10%) (18/28 votes in tiebreak)
22. Christmas Lights (10/34 votes, 10%) (19/28 votes in tiebreak)
23. Up&Up (11/34, 11%)
24. Shiver (7/31, 9.59%) (Less votes in previous rounds)
25. Lost! (7/31, 9.59%)
26. Everglow (13/31, 17.81%)
27. Life in Technicolor II (9/32, 14.06%)
28. Atlas (12/32, 18.75%)
29. Something Just Like This (w/ The Chainsmokers) (9/29, 14.06%)
30. Miracles (Someone Special) (w/ Big Sean) (11/29, 17.19%)

and we have our final 2! The Scientist vs Fix You, what's your top Coldplay song. As we usually do in these, we are switching to voting for your FAVOURITE so please vote for who you would like to WIN and not leave, don't get them mixed up. I will leave this open for the whole week, hopefully avoiding any tiebreaks, and the song with the most votes at the end will be Buzzjack's favourite Coldplay song ohmy.gif go go go~

(shame to see 'Yellow' not making the top 2, I have a real soft spot for it - brings back Guitar Hero memories)

This is the best top 2 there could have been since 'Viva La Vida' got dunked out so hooray! Now let's do the right thing and let 'Fix You' win x

Thank god I didn't tactically vote for 'The Scientist' last round as that would have actually single-handedly changed the result lmao

It’s Fixed! Happy to see Fix You and that should win, but The Scientist is not more superior than Yellow or even Clocks for that matter. I would have liked it to be Fix You vs. Viva La Vida for the final tbh.

One of these songs is significantly better than the other, and that song is The Scientist - glad it survived over Yellow.

It should have been Yellow vs The Scientist. Now that these two are together, I'm not sure which to vote for tbh.

“The powers to be” have decided that Fix You should win and so it will happen

I’m so surprised Fix You managed to stick around after that one week where it almost got eliminated but hey I’m not complaining as it’s one of their best songs! <333

I agree the results have by and large been appalling, but you continue to reach new levels of sheer ridiculousness. laugh.gif

Get a f***ing grip, man. Jeeezus.
