Best Coldplay Songs


The Contenders: Page 5

81 I Ran Away

Most amazing Coldplay b-side IMO. I wish more people knew about it! It's very unique and has an atmospheric feel to it. - shiverforcoldplay

Maybe not their best one, but definitely the most underrated. "Everyone I know says I'm a fool to mess with you, everyone I know says it's a stupid thing to do". I can't get it out of my head!

My god! This song is in #62? Are you kidding me? This should be way above... at least in top 20

Too bad this isn't on an album. Great b-side.

82 Careful Where You Stand

.. Hasn't ANYBODY EVER heard this song? This is their best song.. It's just so sweet and the music is just so soft flowing.. It just flows through you and sings you to sleep...

83 The World Turned Upside Down

This is not one of Coldplay's most popular songs, but it is one of my favorites easily. It has very well written words, and the chorus is spectacular! It's just one of those songs, that you will like right away.

84 Things I Don't Understand

This is easily a Top 5 Coldplay song for me! It's a shame thus "Speed of Sound" B-side isn't very well known, as evidenced by its placement on this list. Hopefully it gets more notice at some point - maybe through people voting it up on this site!

This is THAT SONG - the one that assures you there are others just like you - thank you, Coldplay

Lyrics are meaningful and song is pleasant to listen to. Not over developed and pretty simple melody.

A sure top ten song

85 Amazing Day

One of their best songs. It has that floating quality you find in tracks like In My Place and Speed of Sound. I especially love how Berryman's bass cuts in and out throughout the song; I even learned to play the bass intro (...on my acoustic guitar). Maybe it's just me, but the first time I heard the intro I thought it sounded like the Legend of Zelda theme.

Beautiful, beautiful song. One of my favorites of theirs of all time. Really sticks out as the best song on an otherwise pretty mediocre album.

This is such a beautiful and romantic song! As of right now, it's my favorite song off of A Head Full Of Dreams.

Probably my favorite coldplay song. The vibes it gives are truly remarkable. And the lyrics are beautiful.

89 All I Can Think About is You

I know it is brand new so it will take a while to rise up the ranks, but this song combines the old sound with the new, a perfect bridge and piece of nostalgia in one

Such a beautiful song

Just perfect

This trippy song sees Coldplay go back to the roots they created. The piano from 2:38 is just exquisite. A great blend of a host of songs put together in the right manner!

One of the best... It really cheers me up when I listen to it. If you haven't listened to it, do it now. you wont be disappointed - lvtwoodpecker

Go Coldplay. An amazing song. Miracles is one of the best Coldplay songs. Everything is perfect. Coldplay is the best band. Can't wait for A Head Full Of Dreams.

Great rhythm, great beat and chris' vocals just wow!

91 Up&Up

This song is pure belongs right up there with Fix You and The Scientist.

Best song on A Head full of Dreams album... but live version is even better... And Noel guitar rocks...

This should be top one and best song on the new album and one of the best ever made by them. Keep going Coldplay you get better by each album

Ok, this song is amazing! The lyrics, the tune and especially the emotion! It's in the top 5 for me! - micahisthebest

92 One I Love

Guys please vote on this... I really WONDER how you missed this... AMAZING guitar sounds, especially at the end.. GREAT chorus. Any true coldplay fan would know this deserves top 20, at least.

Absolutely cool song to listen with those guitar riffs. Throughout the song... The opening wording. Sung by Martin is very good... Song with a lot of feelings... Deserves much higher.

Easily one of the most gifted songs that Coldplay inherits. Its hidden on the Coldplay In My Place b-side, which is a shame.

Nice mellow song. Simple and somewhat memorable.

93 A L I E N S A L I E N S
94 Always In My Head

Why in 90? I feel so disappointed. This song is so moving. Listen to it once, you'll see. AMAZING piano in this one, best lyrics ever, listen to it once and you'll get hooked. BEST LOVE SONG OF ALL TIME!

There is not one good reason why this is so low. This song is my favorite song off Ghost Stories, my favorite album. It's just so... perfect.

Why? This song is much more better than Magic! Magic and Ghost Story were the most tracks in Ghost Stories

Best song in GHOST STORY album..
How is this masterpiece placed in 94?

95 Prospekts March

The last 4 lines of this song are 4 of the most evocative, emotional, and beautiful lines of music ever written. The rest of the song is pretty good too!

I love this song.non linear in nature.very melodious.a single tune is not repeated once in the progression of the song.

The first line 'smoke is rising from the houses, people burying their dead' really sets a strong atmosphere

96 Postcards from Far Away

More people should listen to this. This is really something what you'd call perfect. It's blending the tunes of Coldplay with some zesty classical era music. Just 48 seconds, yet it gets to you. Belongs in the top 25.

It's simple, it's sweet, and makes you want to listen to it over and over again

Very fun to listen to the complexity of Chris's improving piano skills.

I can play this on piano, one of the sweetest and simplest pieces by Coldplay

97 Kaleidoscope

The background music of this song perfectly compliments the deep and meaningful words

I find this song magical. One of the best of the last album

98 2000 Miles

A perfect song for couples who are not together during the holiday season. I was really surprise it wasn't in the list.

The distance of 2000 miles brings in an upbeat, festival-esque song.

99 Why Does It Always Rain On Me

That is NOT the Coldplay song... Why is everyone keep saying that this is their song?

This is by Travis, not Coldplay, guys. It's a good song though.

Damn you! This is the best Coldplay song! The lyric is awesome! It awlays feels so good when you are alone and confused and want to figure out how the the universe works..

'... Sunny days where have you gone, I get the strangest feeling you belong.. '

100 Life Is for Living

Hidden track in Parachutes but when performed live, it's a totally different song.

Now I never meant,
To do you wrong,
That's what I came here to say.

But if I was wrong,
Then I'm sorry,
I don't let it stand in our way.
