The most loved and trailblazing musical band Cold Play have given fans and music aficionados a variety of hit but deep songs whose meanings sometimes were really difficult to decipher but in an old interview, fans get to know about how Gwyneth Paltrow’s tragedy did inspire Coldplay’s Fix You.
In an old interview, this interesting tit bit has now come out about how Gwyneth Paltrow’s tragedy did inspire Coldplay’s Fix You.
In an old interview with a leading digital entertainment website, the Hollywood star herself spoke up which is when fans came to know that indeed Gwyneth Paltrow’s tragedy did inspire Coldplay’s Fix You.
In that interview, the Hollywood star Gwyneth Paltrow herself revealed about how one of Coldplay’s biggest hits is actually about her then husband Chris Martin’s reaction to an intensely traumatic experience that she went through and also this is what Chris Martin said when asked about his process of putting this entire song together.
According to a leading international entertainment portal, Gwyneth opened up on the fact that how one Coldplay’s tracks was actually about a direct response to her father’s death and explaining the same she said, “Fix You was about him trying to put me back together after my dad died. I think it’s pretty nice”.
Coldplay’s musical artist Chris Martin terming ‘Fix You’ as a ‘f*cking nightmare to record’ as a death in family wasn’t only inspiration to record this song but also included chords from the Pixies, ‘Where Is My Mind’ a song that’s famous for its use in ‘Fight Club’ along with having a similar emotionality with R.E.M.’s smash ‘Everybody Hurts’ and these all things inspired a lot in making and creation of Fix You song and elucidating on it, he said, “Every album has a key song around which other things get written and without which you couldn’t do other things. On the third album, it was ‘Fix You.’ And all of them were an absolute f*ckin’ nightmare to record, and it’s horrible, and it takes forever. I don’t know what it is – this pressure or something, because you can hear that it’s good”.
Explaining his take on how he was creatively satisfied and elated on seeing final song, Martin told, “I don’t think we could beat that as a direct Coldplay song. That song is very special to me, because there’s no element of it trying to be cool. It’s not trying to be edgy. If your f*ckin’ granddad died, it might be something that makes you cry, you know?”.
