Q.  Hi, I know Coldplay are fans of the great Aha but I didn't know until recently that they performed a cover of The Living Daylights. Is there anywhere where people could hear it?

I don't think that's correct, Callin. They covered Hunting High & Low, not The Living Daylights. In July 2002, they first performed it at 4 different shows.
Later, at the Oslo Spektrum, Norway on Septmeber 19, 2008 Chris sang it with Mags (from A-ha) on piano.

Q.  In the Archive videos where Mags joins Chris onstage in Oslo 19.09.08 what song was Chris singing?

They were performing a-ha's classic hit Hunting High & Low.

Q.  Hey there...

I`m sure I saw Guy here in Sora, Denmark yesterday, though I got the sun direct in eyes.
What on earth is he doing in this hole, when all Music-Mecca is in UK?
OK we have -particularly - some young bands here, that is worth listen to!

The only connection between Scandinavia and Guy yesterday was that he was at the a-ha show in London. As you know they hail from Norway but that's as close as he was to Denmark.

Q.  Is there a song by Chris Martin that contains the words (in that order): 'mould', 'high', 'low'??

Are you sure you're not thinking of Coldplay's cover of Hunting High and Low by a-ha? That contains the words 'know', 'high' and 'low'. I seriously cannot think of a song with any mention of mould...

Q.  Hey Oracle,
I've heard a song playing by Coldplay called Hunting High and Low but I am not sure it's by the band so can you please tell me who did the song? THANKS A LOT

You're right to be unsure as the original song is by A-ha. Coldplay are fans and friends of the band and have been known to sing a little of Hunting High & Low at some previous shows. F.Y.I: A-ha have announced UK tour dates today!
