Q.  TEAM ORACLE QUESTION #212
Perhaps it is not really relevant, it is important for me... I'm a very insecure and shy guy, and it is difficult for me to talk to a girl.
The point is that sometimes I fall in love with some girl I know just for a month, it seems stupid, but usually happens, the question is: Am I a womanizer? Thank you in advance.

ANYONE can join in so, if you'd like to, please email your response to the following question, in no more than 250 words, to theoracle@coldplay.com before midnight Thursday 30 April.

I'm 27 years, never properly travelled or lived away from home. I'd love to live in a city like London for a year or at least I think I do. Is it wise at my age or should I stick to my career and save money (I'm an Environmental Health and Safety Graduate).
I also come from a Farm and always feel guilty when I'm away not helping Dad, (even though I don't really enjoy it and probably not much good at it, ha).
Anyway What do you think??
Patrick, Ireland.


Look forward to reading your replies.

Q.  Hey Oracle, Hope you are doing great! A good while back you answered a question with regards to a video of The Scientist, performed at Glastonbury 2005. The band as you recall took crowd pics after the song.
Any ideas what sites they may have shown up on, would really love to see them.

Q.  Hello, I am a huge fan of Coldplay and I would like to do guitar covers of some of their songs like Don't Panic, White Shadows, and Square One (I would have the recordings playing as I play)... However I recently learned about the copyright laws of YouTube and would like to avoid any copyright. So I guess what I am asking is whether I am allowed to do this, and if not, then how do I get permission.

Q.  Hello All Knowledgeable Oracle! It would be such an honor if you would answer my question I give to you...
I came across this song called Light Through The Veins by John Hopkins on one of my iTunes radios. When I first heard it, it sounded awfully like the beginning of Life In Technicolor. It basically has the same exact notes as the beginning of the boys song, which is kind of frustrating to me. Do you have an explanation for this, dear Oracle? Did John Hopkins pull a Vanilla Ice on Coldplay? Or is this just a remix of some sort?
Thank you! I wish you a wonderful day.

Q.  Hello Oracle,
I've written to you before but none of my questions have ever been answered :(
So, I was wondering why do the band not play many songs from X&Y live? The album is certainly a fan favorite and I know many other Coldplay fans would like to hear the songs be played live!
All the best,

Q.  TEAM ORACLE QUESTION #212
A dear friend of mine passed away last year in May at the very young age of 19. Rather than being distraught on the anniversary of his death, I'm hoping to do something special to celebrate his life. Do you have any suggestions? I'm currently in Sydney, Australia and he loved the mountains, good beer, and adventure, if that helps. I'm just not sure what to do and I need ideas because the last thing he'd want is for me to spend the day grieving in my room.
I appreciate your advice.

Q.  TEAM ORACLE QUESTION #211
So, a couple years back I was on a hike with a bunch of friends. One of my friends fell, she nearly went off the cliff but I was right there so she grabbed onto me and I got her onto ground. I was foolish. All I said was, "you okay?", but then I just sorta continued on. I was dumb to not realize that she was on her own. She lives in Utah now, far as you can see around where I live. Last Summer she was visiting, I found out that she was crying alone on that hike after. Scared to death. I can't live with myself now. I feel responsible for her. The fact that we don't keep in touch hurts me. I want to be like her best friend, I have this need to protect her. I am a musician and I've written songs for her but I don't know the best way to make these songs or what to do with them so she could realize how much I care and want to be her friend. So who do I turn to? Well, who else? The masters of music, Coldplay. I was just hoping to get advice from The Oracle to get me out of this Ghost Story.

Q.  Hello Oracle and to every Coldplayer on earth!
My question is:
What model is the BMW driven by Chris in the music video The Scientist?
A few years ago I read that the car was an 1985 model. Then I discovered another website declaring the vehicle a 1987!

So now I am a bit confused! I want to purchase the same model car for myself one day. ;) And I want the correct model!
Thanks so much.
