Q. Hello Oracle!
I was listening to the excerpt of So Sad, by Coldplay Have you ever heard it in its entirety? Stylistically, is it similar to the other songs from the Safety EP?


The Oracle replies:

I have and yes, I'd say that it is closer to the Safety EP in style than anything else the band have released. It was written & recorded (for demo purposes only) around the same time as Don't Panic which although was being performed live, was originally discarded as a potential album track. It was quite a late decision to include it on Parachutes.
