Death And All His Friends

From WikiColdplay

Jump to: navigation, search

Death And All His Friends is a track included on Coldplay's fourth album.

It is described as a straight-up rock tune with a riff that sounds ripped from the Doobie Brothers, piano, and, in the last section, flute.

It begins with Martin singing softly to a piano accompaniment before morphing into an exalted spirit-lifter that features a pounding piano, chiming guitars, yet more driving drums and a choir recorded in an art gallery in Barcelona.

The first "quiet" half of the song was originally part of an unreleased song known as School, which was initially used as the intro to Rainy Day before becoming part of Death And All His Friends.

The Oracle on Death And All His Friends

Q. Was a Coldplay song ever used in an episode of Grey's Anatomy? I thought I heard Chris' voice over a scene once and it's been bugging me not knowing. Thanks very much :)
The Oracle replies:
Yes it was, just before Viva la Vida was released, the song Death and All His Friends was featured in an episode. Also, In The Sun (the track Michael Stipe & Chris duetted on that I mentioned yesterday), was used.

Lyrics

All winter, we got carried
Away over on the rooftops, let's get married
All summer, we just hurried
So come over, just be patient and don’t worry
So come over, just be patient and don’t worry

So come over, just be patient and don’t worry
And don’t worry

No, I don’t wanna battle from beginning to end
I don’t want a cycle of recycled revenge
I don’t wanna follow death and all of his friends

No, I don’t wanna battle from beginning to end
I don’t want a cycle of recycled revenge
I don’t wanna follow death and all of his friends
