Must Have Been Yellow

I love this song. I am sure most of you reading this post do.

However there are a few people who have not heard of the phenomenon called Coldplay. One such person who I, with much reluctance, call my friend happened to be in my car as "Yellow" blared from the speakers.

Friend: Which song is this?
Me: Coldplay. Yellow. You havent heard it?
Friend: Nope.
Me: Come on man. Its like the best song ever. Whats funny about it is Chris Martin came up with the lyrics when his new-born peed on him.
Friend: What?
Me: Listen to em!

"And everything you do,
Yeah, they were all yellow"

"Oh what a thing to have done,
And it was all yellow"

"Oh what a thing to do.
Cos you were all yellow"

Friend: No way! Good try tho'!
Me: Would jaundice have worked better?

The more I think about this now, the more I think this song is related to pee.

You know, I have always wondered about that since I heard this song! Sounds like someone who has jaundice, but your explanation makes perfect sense now!

Genius really, of course now I also know why you love this song soo much :P

Reminds me of a scene from 'Be Cool' where John Travolta and Aerosmith discuss the inspiration for "Sweet Emotion".

John Travolta: You had just become a father! Liz was a baby and you were feeling great about it! That was sweet emotion.

Aerosmith: Yeah..

John: Yeah..

Aerosmith: Or maybe..it was just rock n' roll.

Now why did I think of that? Oh yes, baby pee.

Left a comment for you on the previous post.

On this one, LOL, only you could have thought so. BTW, even I haven't heard the song. But then, I haven't heard any (ummm, ok make that many) English songs as it is!

FYI, Yellow was a hit way before he met Gwyneth Paltrow, so there is no way he wrote it when the newborn pee-ed on him.

I should know coz I was with him then. Heh. And ya, I got dumped by Chris Martin.

"On VH1's Storytellers program, Chris Martin revealed that his inspiration for the song's title came from the Yellow Pages."
