Well, I believe that every band should have some softer songs- some with più depth and meaning in them. Don't get me wrong- Coldplay songs have a lot of messages in them but The Scientist is one of those songs that really makes people THINK. Maybe that is the reason people like it... if te concentrate on the lyrics più than the music, te might be able to find the hidden meaning in it...
Sometimes when te say that a song is ,,beautiful'' te may point the musical part,but to get a complete view on a song te must find the nucleus wich is represented da the meaning of the words.All is like a fruit.The life is in the seed,and the Coldplay's songs are made to be understood.If the message is strong,emotional and powerfull,you are ready to say that this song is beautiful.If te understand the Scientist,this domanda will be worthless.
I Amore clocks also, but the scientist is a very touching song. It talks about how we lose people in our lives and how we think back to the happy times we had with them and how its hard for us to just let them go. Everyone can relate some difficult emotional experience in their lives from the scientist.
We LIKE The Scientist. That doesn't necessarily mean we Amore AND ADORE thatr song. We may, but does that mean it's our preferito song? My preferito is Amsterdam. I like The Scientist, I Amore The Scientist (I Amore ALL Coldplay songs!) BUT - The Scientist is not my favorite. See what I mean?
