Q.  Hello Oracle !
Can you tell me why How You See The World have 2 versions? And only 1 on colplaying.com ? I'm very curious about the story of this song :-)
Thanks a lot !
Isa

I think you mean Coldplay.com? Coldplaying is an unofficial fan site so I can't comment on their content.
The first version of the song appeared on the Japanese release of X&Y as a bonus track. Chris re-recorded vocals with new lyrics for the second version that was re-written for the Help!: A Day in the Life album.

The version we have on our site (the b side to The Hardest Part) is listed as it appears on the sleeve as How You See The World but it is actually no. 2.

Q.  Hi Oracle! :D
I was thinking about the song 'How You See The World No. 2'. I hadn't ever questioned the fact that it was version 2 until now. Has there ever been a recorded version of No. 1?
Thank you!

Yes, indeed there was the original How You See The World, hence No. 2 being called number 2.

Q.  Dear all-knowing

I come before you once again befuzzled and confused, looking for answers. It seems the whole world - and definitely the whole web - is confused about which Coldplay version is How You See The World (Live At Earl's Court), released with The Hardest Part and How You See the World No.2 (released on Help: A Day in the Life). Even iTunes hasn't got it straight I think. Can you just clarify for us please: which version starts with the words "you put the world in a tin can, black market contraband" and which version starts with the words "are you missing something? Looking for something?"
I don't think this question has been asked yet.

Chris re-recorded vocals with new lyrics for the second version that was re-written for the Help!: A Day in the Life album, hence naming it How You See the World No. 2. Its opening line is "You put the world in a tin can".
