I Bloom Blaum
I Bloom Blaum is a b-side from the In My Place single, released in 2002. It was first played on Steve Lamacq's show on BBC Radio 1 ahead of the single release. The title of the track translates into Icelandic for "the blue people".

Legend has it you also came up with the name for another B-side, I Bloom Blaum? If so, please explain.
No, the song already existed and was named by Chris. The title is Icelandic for 'the blue people'. It was something Chris would sing when he picked up the guitar he keeps at my house. He played it one night and I fell in love with it straight away, so that on subsequent occasions I would insist he play it. When the band were putting the Rush of Blood singles together I suggested they include I Bloom Blaum as a B-side somewhere. Lo and behold, they did.
The Oracle on I Bloom Blaum

Q. Could you give me some insight into the title I Bloom Blaum?
The Oracle replies:
I can Tim, yes. The day after Coldplay played a gig in Iceland; there was a review in a local paper. Chris thought it said I Bloom Blaum and asked a friend what it meant. He said it meant 'the blue people' but in fact the paper hadn't said I Bloom Blaum at all that's just what Chris remembered it as. So I Bloom Blaum doesn't mean anything!
FYI: Simon Pegg told Chris to call the song that.
Darling those tired eyes Go with me all the time And in the dead of night Tell me you will be mine Where do you go to Pretty baby Where do you go when the night winds away Ask me so sweetly What do I do Who do I sing for Well honey I sing about you You.
