Okay so I’m totally cheating with this one, because Coldplay didn’t release studio music until 2000, but I recently found out that Chris Martin and Jonny Buckland not only met and started the band (originally under the name Pectoralz) in 1996, but it was during the month I was born!
So, technically Shiver – Coldplay wasn’t made in 1996 but that fact makes it kind of count. Parachutes is my least favorite Coldplay album (still a good one, but of all of them probably my least favorite) – but since it’s the closest album to the year I was born I chose to pick a song off of it (That isn’t the classic – Yellow).
I mean seriously… the month/year I was born my favorite band started? Not a coincidence (totally a coincidence).
