Q. Talk is probably one of the best songs on X&Y if not of Coldplay, but surprisingly doesn't rank as high as expected on Rolling Stone top 100 list. I saw the composers on the album info and among them were some names I didn't recognize (is Ralf Hutter German?) How exactly did you go about writing this song and how did these other entities add to the song?
The Oracle replies:
Ralf Hutter is German as is his band Kraftwek whose song Computer Love is where Talk takes its hook from.
