Now they are one of my favorites!

Of course any time a band or musician becomes highly successful there are going to be dissenters, and Coldplay has had their fair share.

One can get a lot of crap these days for liking Coldplay, particularly after the infamous, "You know how I know you're gay..." scene from The 40-Year-Old Virgin. I'll probably get even more crap for it later, but with over fifty million records sold someone is listening to them. (It should also be noted that Chris Martin and crew were flattered by the comments despite their negative connotations.) Of course any time a band or musician becomes highly successful there are going to be dissenters, and Coldplay has had their fair share.

While the single "Yellow" off their first album Parachutes put them on the global radar, it was with their second album A Rush of Blood to the Head that they became worldwide superstars. That album spawned four singles and garnered two Grammy awards for the band. Among these songs were some of the best released by the band; not that their output before or after has been lacking, but this was Coldplay at their peak. Among all of the tracks that made their way into the ether of the radio waves though, "The Scientist" remains my favorite.

"The Scientist" was actually somewhat born out of a spot of writer's block. With a recorder on, Martin sat at a piano and was trying to work out how to play George Harrison's song "Isn't It a Pity" and while he was unable to do so he hit on a chord sequence that he thought was simply lovely. Feeling that the album so far was missing something he used this chord sequence to write what the album was missing.

The lyrics of "The Scientist" deal with the singer apologizing to a woman in the midst of a break up.

When it has came down to Coldplay, and their classic brand of soulful songs, they definitely have shown simplicity, and that does come well with The Scientist from their A Rush Of Blood To The Head record. The song really is just one of the most classic songs from their career, and shows why Chris Martin has been shown distinctive as a vocalist over the past several years. I also adores the video which showed Chris going backwards through a difficult scene. I thought it was a very clever video, and the song really shows it too. If you're a new fan of Coldplay, than try this scientist for your MP3 player.

Song: B+

As far as I am concerned this is one of "COLDPLAY's" best songs. Even if you are not a big fan of "COLDPLAY" or ROCK MUSIC in general, I highly suggest that you give this song a listen!!!, WHO KNOWS YOU MAY WIND UP LIKING IT!!!. When I first heard of "COLDPLAY" I was quite hesitant to even try to listen to any of their music. Actually, I did not like "COLDPLAY" the first time that I listened to them, However, as time went on I wound up listening to them again and I decided that they were actually a pretty good band after all!!!.

This song has always been one of my favorite Coldplay songs.
The feeling of the song is intensified in the movie Wicker Park.
Check it out and see.

This song is so good it transports you to a new level for Coldplay. It explores stars, ski, and love.

I think that Cold Play's song "The Scientist" is (for me anyway) a reality check about how we all lose people we love in our lives.
