Best Coldplay Songs


The Contenders: Page 6

101 Animals

The whole song is wonderful, but it's the 3:20 mark... I could die, it's so beautiful...

Why this wasn't on AROBTTH or X and Y is beyond me, this song is amazing, it really is. Tough competition from Gravity, but is probably the best b-side coldplay have ever produced.

102 Beautiful World

Makes me nostalgic every time I listen to this. This song is pure manic to me and makes my eyes water up. Especially the guitar which complements the singers voice with perfect harmony.

103 Oceans

Really? This song is extremely good and the second part of the song sounds very good and I always heard Oceans and A Sky Full Of Stars together. This song rewinds me of Parachutes and the old-Coldplay

This song is one of the best from Ghost Stories. It's relaxing and should be much, much higher on this list.

Just love when he jumps of the pier and then Sky Full Of Stars just jumps in and just love the lyric!

104 Lost+

We can listen to the one of the best guitar playing on coldplay songs so far in Lost

105 Harmless

Really hope this ends up in a box set one day, but for the moment all we have is a YouTube video

106 Your Love Means Everything

World's best sad song ever...

An amazing song that breaks your hard yet fills you with joy.

Just pure beautiful. :')

107 1.36

Not something that is in the band's normal range but it is extremely good.

108 All Your Friends

Probably the most unheard of song in the album Ghost Stories. The video is haunting. It's about the World War and how people went out to die. "All your friends they, ride into the sunset, ride into the sunset, and away they go..."

Why is this here? This is top 10 material

109 Chinese Sleep Chant

After we're put to sleep by the weakest track on viva la Vida in my opinion (Yes), this hidden gem jumps out at us to wake us up. With the jangly guitars, loud drums, and dream like vocals, this song is not only energetic, but almost puts me in a trance. One of the best hidden tracks I've ever heard. It's short but sweet and I enjoy every second of it. Such a great song.

111 Poppyfields
112 Crest of Waves

Great guitar, great complexity, great verses and vocals, completely overrated. I miss the old Coldplay. I wish they were still releasing masterpieces like these today.

This is such a good song! Give it a try!

I hope that this eventually gets higher on the list. It's actually a really good song!

The title is exactly what it sounds like. Could definitely be higher than what it is here!

113 Such a Rush

The vocals in this are amazing, and it's a shame this song isn't that well known. I was pretty surprised too see other songs from "The Blue Room" here, but Such A Rush was absent.

114 Easy to Please

This song is beautiful, and so atmospheric. In just a few lines, it creates lots of feelings within. With the haunting atmosphere, mellow acoustics, amazing vocals, and a short, but beautiful piano tune; this song is surely one of Coldplay's best.

115 Bloodless Revolution
116 Reign of Love

When I first listened to this I have to admit, I didn't like it but as I listened to the Viva la Vida Album over again, I grew to It and I love it!

117 O (Reprise)
118 Birds

Best song in the album!

What a beautiful masterpiece


Yo, sorrento

119 Proof

It may not be THE best of Coldplay's songs but certainly deserves a mention, and is a top 10 in my book.

120 Ode to Deodorant
