We've been had. COLDPLAY, which made the song YELLOW into an international hit [2000], with these opening lyrics:

Look at the stars,
Look how they shine for you,
And everything you do.
Yeah, they were all yellow.

Now [2005] singer lyricist Chris Martin tells the truth. A slap in the face to his fans.

"The world yellow has all this meaning attached to it now [2005], but here's where the mystery ends. It's not quite so romantic. The whole song makes lyrical sense except for that word. I needed a two syllable word when I was composing the song, and there was a book lying next to me in the studio with the word "yellow" on the cover somewhere, and there it was, I just stuck that word in the lines I was writing, without rhyme or reason. And now the mystery is solved, or shattered. But it worked."

Rock and roll is so fake, sometimes, and we been had.
