Q. Dear Oracle,

I am really excited about the Paralympic Games, especially the closing ceremony being a huge Coldplay fan. I love the video that is on the main page of this website and was wondering what the music track is in the background? It sounds very Coldplay-esque to me but this may be me getting overexcited! Thanks.

The Oracle replies:

It is very exciting - although this rain is a nuisance!
I can see why you think the song is similar to Coldplay in the video but it's actually Take Over The World by The Courteeners.
