Q.  Dear Oracle
I realized that in the Christmas Lights video appears a phrase in the up part of the theater said this "CREDO ELVEM ETIAM VIVERE". Does it have a special meaning for the song or what does it really means ? and Which language is used for written? Thanks for your attention and I hope your gentile response.

It means "I believe Elvis lives" in Latin. There is a reference to Elvis in the song: "Like some drunken Elvis singin'" and - as you may have spotted - there are some violining Elvises in the video.

Q.  Hi Oracle! What happened in the ending of this video? Thanks!

Many musicians use click tracks to help keep time and synchronize - especially at live shows. Much like a metronome they click - hence the name - and give precise indications. In the video, Chris has come in too early so he & Will discuss how many clicks it is before his cue to sing/play.

Q.  Hey,
I was listening to Zane Lowe's first play of Christmas Lights and he was describing a "pink, origami-like" packaging. Chris said, that they made only 100 of them. Can I see a photo of that awesome artwork?

Here is what it looks like inside but outside it was just plain pink envelope style. I have seen one but don’t actually own one myself.

Q.  Hi Oracle, well I've a simple question, I love Christmas Lights, but I don't know from what cd is (I have all the cd's from Coldplay, and it isn't in no one). So, it's in a EP?
Thanks for your time. Congrats from Argentina.

Christmas Lights was released as a digital download only so is not available on any physical release.

Q.  Hi Oracle!
I've just seen a Christmas Lights Behind the scenes video, and I am wondering if it is possible that I saw Simon Pegg like one of the "violin players".

Simon Pegg was more than a violin player, he was Elvis!

Q.  I have been trying to get my hands on a copy of the CD of Christmas Lights since 2010... is there a chance you are going to sell it or stock it in any way shape or form, really wanna own it

Does it have to be a physical copy? We don't have any. There were a limited number made but we didn't make them available for purchase. Anyway, the track is 59p this week from iTunes!

Q.  Went to see the boys in Manchester they were unbelievable best I've ever seen them, but one problem they didn't play Christmas Lights :(
How come they haven't been playing it?

The Manchester gig was on the 4th December which is a little early to be rolling out a Christmas song, no?
They performed it at Dingwalls last Tuesday but only as that is being broadcast this week on Radio 2 - a much more acceptable date to be playing festive songs I feel.
Oh and they did give it an airing on Saturday at the O2 as part of the Under 1 Roof night. It was interrupted by a certain Mr. Alan Partridge...

Q.  Will they be playing Christmas Lights at any of their upcoming shows?

On 1 December Will wrote "Christmas Lights being dusted off for the festive season" on the band's Twitter. It has been performed live this week already and I have a feeling it will be again...

Q.  G'day Oracle

I noticed in the song Christmas Lights that some of the lyrics used in the song were also from the unreleased song Wedding Bells.

Does this mean we will never see a finished version of Wedding Bells? It would be a shame if it wasn't.

Keep up the good work!

I very much doubt it myself but never say never. It isn't uncommon for a song to end up with lyrics from a previously written one as they often lend themselves better. If Wedding Bells ever does make the light of day, I would say there'd be some adjustment to the lyrics.
