Coldplay - Yellow

Coldplay - Yellow


“Look at the stars, look how they shine for you…”

Although the Yellow that Chris Martin is singing about is, apparently, the Yellow Pages, this song would go on to define Coldplay. 

With its moving sentimentality and inherent Englishness, Yellow has become one of the most famous British songs of all time. 

Despite various re-workings, Yellow never disappears from the band’s setlist, and with lines as delicious as “For you I bleed myself dry” it’s become an anthem that could outlive the band themselves.
