Q. I have a question about the lamp in the Fix You video. What kind of lamp/light hangs above the stage when Chris grabs the rope and starts swinging it? The lamp is also seen in the live version of Fix You on the Glastonbury festival in 2005.
I`m asking this because I'm thinking about getting a tattoo of the lamp with some lyrics underneath it.


The Oracle replies:

When Chris had the idea for a swinging light bulb, it wasn't actually going to be used for Fix You but a different song. I'm sorry I can't remember which now, even though I was at the rehearsals when it was introduced.
It literally did start off as a light bulb. It's not a special lamp or one where I can direct you to a similar one. I'm afraid it's going to be a case of looking at the video and freeze framing any shots of it.
