Released: August 2002
The key tune on 2002’s ‘A Rush Of Blood To The Head’ wasn’t even supposed to be on the record at all, and only turned up on the bands second album after Chris Martin, en route to filing the tracklisting to label Parlophone, had a crisis of confidence about the proposed release, asked to put the date back by two months, and recorded the song on the recommendation of the band's manager Phil Harvey. We should be grateful they did – it’s testament to the songs wonder that it’s appeared in places as disparate as The Sopranos, ER and in the promos for pro-wrestler Kurt Angle.
