Oh no, it makes me cry....
on 1 September 2001
Yellow is a strange one, to be sure. Well, Coldplay are a strange band. In today's culture, where upbeat pop-rock like Blink182 has infiltrated the ranks of the youth music market, it's odd to find an indie band having a particularly successful career.
Coldplay deserve it.
Yellow is definitely their best song (ignore those who say it's Trouble; Trouble's great, to be sure, but definitely not as touching as this). Crushed-out and definitely heartfelt, this song expresses love in a way I wouldn't have thought possible.
Attempting not to go too deeply into my personal life, this song is one that made me cry every day during a particularly stressful week, because the heavy bassline and simple tune (coupled with the wonderful, lyrical singing) is an absolute joy to listen to.
Assuming, of course, that you want to cry...
