Coldplay & My city

Postby Zechiel » Wed Aug 27, 2008 5:43 am

Official Coldplay alternate video:

Entirely shot in The Hague, the city I live in. You get a nice view of the woods, the beach and ofcourse the grey weather I always moan about.
(The orange flags indicate it was shot during Koninginnedag or EU football championship)

Its a good song, enjoy it

The official music video for "Viva la Vida" was directed by Hype Williams and premiered at Coldplay's official website on August 1. The video features the band performing in multi-color backgrounds, including the album's artwork (used for the majority of the video) and speeding clouds (used in between verses and in parts of the final chorus). The video ends with every band member crumbling to rose petals that fly into the air.

A second, alternate video was directed by Anton Corbijn and released alongside the first. This second version is a tribute to Corbijn's video for Depeche Mode's "Enjoy the Silence" and portrays Chris Martin as the king from whose perspective the song is sung. During the video, he carries a larger framed version of the cover art for the album. At the end, we see him hang the picture up in a white stall on top of a hill. As he sings the last chorus, his band mates surface heading his way, tying in loose ends from the Violet Hill video.

Great video!

I can "feel" it right now ;)

I like Radiohead and Coldplay. I used to listen to Radiohead alot back in the day. I need to get back into my old music more. So much meaning and feeling like that song.

Beautiful place Zech. I still hope one day I can afford to come see your area, like I said before.
