Best Songs From Coldplay's a Rush of Blood to the HeadMatrixGuy The second studio album by English rock band Coldplay
The Top Ten
The melody on Clocks is what will make this track an endless classic. People will still be playing and appreciating this song for generations to come. - ChristianDavid
Please vote for clocks. It's amazing and I don't see how the scientist is better. The only people that don't think this song is the best haven't listened to it.
This song got a Grammy. The album was POSTPONED for this song. It became a hit on release. One of the best piano riffs of this century. Need I say anything more?
I can't hear this song without being able to sing anything but it for the next three daysV 5 Comments
In their best album, packed with songs like "Clocks", "In My Place", "Politik" and "Amsterdam" ; Coldplay's Track THE SCIENTIST appears one cut higher than the others with a beautiful melody and lyrics. The emotions packed in it make it one o th greatest songs in existence.
A story about a man's desire to love and an apology - MatrixGuy
Beautiful. Just plain beautiful. - sameera62
Its make me feel sad. Its too beautiful...V 4 Comments
I love the drum smashing start and guitar solo. My favourite Coldplay song
This album is truly emotional, this song should be either in the number 2 or 3 spot.
The first Coldplay song I ever heard. A "smashing" hit
How is this enchanting, slow moving all-time great down at number 7? On its album? - Songsta41
2) The Scientist
3) Warning Sign
4) A Rush of Blood to the Head
6) In My Place
9) God Put a Smile Upon Your Face
10) Green Eyes
11) A Whisper - Chippieolamus
This is one of the most powerful songs ever made in the history of music. It's just epic, that's all I can say.
This was the opening song in that album. I think it wouldn't be unfair to say the quality of this song went a long way in ensuring the success of that alum.
Holy crap, this song is epic. There's a reason they used this at the opening ceremony. So powerful. It really builds itself up...
My favorite Coldplay song, sounds amazing!V 2 Comments
I love how it goes from a slow piano ballad to a heavy guitar based song. And the lyrics are just fantastic, "stood on the edge, tied to the noose, you came along and you cut me loose." It's just an amazing song and it might be my favorite Coldplay song.
The order goes as follows
1. A rush of blood to the head/Amsterdam
3. Warning sign
4. In my place
5. The scientist
7. Green eyes
8. A Whisper
11. God put a smile upon your face
But a rush of blood to the head and Amsterdam just compliment each other, I think a rush of blood to the head is just a little bit better if I had to choose between the two but I liked Amsterdam because it's so low on the list
It's funny how this is #1 on Coldplay's best non-singles list, but it's only #7 here.
You can't be telling me that this song is only 6th? What the heck? This song must be secondV 5 Comments
Totally underrated song. The lyrics, the melody, the sadness but also the freedom it gives you in the last lines. Clearing up everything after a big mistake. "So meet me by the bridge... " Bridge is a place where two parts meet each other halfway, lovley metaphor. - ask0901
This song is so underrated
Best Coldplay song ever!
Deep powerful and sad lyrics about a man who's about to explode and break everything. It's probably one of the darkest track made by Coldplay.
Very hard to pick favourites from this brilliant album. Every song is a favourite! But if I have to choose, I would pick the title track together with the scientist as my absolute favourites. Both of the songs hit the feels so deep I can't even explain.
Good song, but Minecraft parodies are just terrible
This is really great
Underrated song, I did a Minecraft parody
Why is this 8th? LOL
I have this album and it's amazing!
This is how I think:
1) Clocks (Best coldplay song)
2) The Scientist
3) In My Place
4) God Put A Smile Upon Your Face
6) Warning Sign
8) A Rush Of Blood To The Head
10) A whisper
11) Green Eyes
Probably the most minimal song on the album, but it has the most beautiful build up at the end...
I love this song! One of my favorites on the album! I love the acoustic version too!
This song is highly underrated. Move it up guys
Not as good as Clocks or The Scientist, but still good.
Very heavy and dark verse with a very melodic chorus. This song is awesome!
Not as good as Clocks or The Scientist but it is still good.
Much better than Green eyes!V 1 Comment
