So, I became a Coldplayer about a year before VLV was released. The 22nd august 2009 me and my friend went to see the boys for the first time in Stockholm and a week before that my boyfriend left me so I was super-emotional and listened to all of their really sad songs like the scientist, a message, swallowed in the sea FIX YOU etc. After that concert, X & Y was all i could listen to. The album was on repeat on my ipod 24/7 and the whole album is just amazing and i love every song with all of my heart. Fix you is the song of my life and i love it so much it hurts haha.
birdsflyatthespeedofsound’s X&Y story c:
When I first became a coldplayer after I fell in love with all the more mainstream songs I decided to listen to a whole album. Irony know why I chose X&Y , but I’m so glad I did. I listened to this album, and everything that I was unsure about, finally made sense. Th emotions I was battling about how I didn’t know way I was feeling, were gone. I had X&Y on repeat for I don’t even know how long. It felt like an alternate universe. Where the sky was always dark blue, and cloudy. Everyone was trying to make sense of everything, and all these broken feelings were slowly being mended. It’s the best music I ever hears, and I didn’t think anything or any band could be better. This album’s what got my dedication to coldplay and today I wouldn’t be the same person without it. Im very convinced it’s the reason I’m happ an I’ll never forget the nights where I stayed up with my headphones on full blast having my emotions so open and feeling as if everythin easement in the world.
alright, so this is my X&Y story.
After getting into Coldplay, I was trying to download all the albums..I’d gotten them all. except X&Y. for some reason I REALLY wanted, really badly. but none of the downloads worked.
After searching around some, I finally found it! and I was so excited to download it. I got it, and I listened to it and some sort of overwhelming feeling took over me..it was actually really magical.
I got attached to it really quickly. It wasn’t my favorite album when I first got it, in fact I didn’t have a favorite album. But one day I really listened to White Shadows and it really..hit me, I guess you could say. I had it on repeat for several hours. and I just really loved the album.
I’m not exactly sure how it happened, but it just grew on me so much and now its actually my favorite album. It makes me feel better, I love the messages in every single one of the songs. I got the physical copy in April, this year. and I cried when I got it. I love this album so much. c’:
Well I’ve always loved this album, and the song Fix You in particular but I just kinda liked the music. Then last year when my best friend committed suicide, I don’t know, it was just really rough for me and I didn’t know what to do with myself… I mean I was in this total suicidal depression and stopped eating and got into this just terrible self harm stage that I hate talking about and then this album came back into my life and I was pretty much listening to it religiously and it saved my life. Literally. I don’t know where I’d be. I can’t describe how it makes me feel. I think about it and just smile because it was there when I shut the world out and when I felt like the world shut me out. As dumb as it might sounds, I feel like this album was written personally for me and I love that (:
We have something we’d love for you guys to take part in.
