I like Coldplay a good bit, and this is one of the few songs that I will skip when listening to their records. I guess I tend to think that most of Chris Martin's romantic relationship songs are nauseating. Fix You is not much better IMO. From A Rush, give me Daylight or Amsterdam, even Green Eyes. But I couldn't be more unmoved by a song as I am by The Scientist.

So lynch me now.

Well I feel obligated to make an appearance in this thread.

I bought Rush the day it came out, and this song instantly struck me. It became an intensely personal song, and still is, to a degree. But as soon as it became a single and EVERYBODY loved it, that changed it for me. It's a perfect example of my dilemma with Coldplay. Back in the early Parachutes days, they were one of my little bands, much like, say, Eisley is now. But as their popularity skyrocketed, the personal element is gone from the music for me now. It sucks to see "nObOdY SaId It WaZ Ez!1!!" on teenybopper's xangas and AIM profiles. It sort of adulterates the experience. But I love Coldplay, I love this song, and I always will.

The Scientist is a good song. The whole first half of A Rush Of Blood to the Head has this totally magic feeling. what a great album but my favourite Coldplay song is and always will be Don't Panic. I can't even explain why. It's short, it's simple...it's Coldplay just being Coldplay and not trying to be anything else. and the song hit me at a time where I needed to latch onto something.

has that single got both I Ran Away and 1.36 on? Both of those are on my personal Coldplay compilation.

You really must have lived under a rock to have avoided this song for so long, it's one of the most hauntingly beautiful songs I've ever heard too, but it really suffers from over-exposure. It's even better experienced live too, has their US tour finished yet? If not, they're a great live band too. Have fun discovering more of their stuff too.

The video for the song is pretty sweet too. It reminds me of part of Weird Al's Amish Paradise video with the walking backwards but talking normally
