Coldplay B-Sides

The Coldplay of 2009 isn’t the Coldplay that endeared the band to us back when Parachutes came out.  Sure, Andy liked Viva La Vida – probably better than their last couple albums, if he’s being honest – but the new album, as much as he may enjoy it, just doesn’t cut it when thinking about the aching quality of their debut.  Dave’s enjoyment level, on the other hand, has actually diminished with each subsequent album.  With Parachutes being the best in his opinion, A Rush of Blood to the Head being second, then the last two being very close.

Here are a few b-sides from the band’s early days that showcase exactly what we mean. We’ll give it to Coldplay on that front – they generally have great b-sides. These are three of our favorites.

Coldplay – No More Keeping My Feet on the Ground (mp3) from the Yellow single

Coldplay – Careful Where You Stand (mp3) from the Shiver single

Coldplay – Crests of Waves (mp3) from Clocks single

    You are so right. I love parachutes and their early B-Sides are so awesome. Also, For You on Shiver is one of their best ever tracks, it’s so relaxing and emotional.
