What I’m saying is enjoy this particular video while you can because EMI clearly reads this and other sites out there […]

“Look at the stars….look how they shine for you…” You’re familiar with the song right? It’s one of the big hits from major British band Coldplay. But were the stars really what front man Chris Martin was looking at? Recorded in March 2000, The song was released as the lead single of the band’s debut […]
