Sat on a train, despondently listening to the early drafts of A Rush Of Blood To The Head, singer Chris Martin became anxious that Coldplay were trying to do too much with their follow up album. Stripping everything back to a simple piano melody, the band wrote the early stages of The Scientist there and then. The result was one of the band’s most adored songs, stunningly understated, yet confidently delivered.
