Q. Oracle I have been a fan of you the first time I heard Clocks piano ballad, which,actually was about when the song was first released if I can recall. If I met Chris Martin in person I would ask him this question I'm asking you and that would be, what inspired you to make the song Clocks.
The Oracle replies:
Clocks isn't what I'd call a ballad, Tahj. I remember back in 2002 Chris mentioned that Clocks was inspired by Muse and their piano driven music of the time.
