Q. Hi Oracle !

It's true or not?

From twitter:
"Chris Martin wrote the song Yellow after a family holiday to Osaka in 1996".

Thank You

Sven


The Oracle replies:

Yellow wasn’t written until 1999 so no that's not at all true. There wasn't a family holiday in Osaka either! The twitter page you saw will have absolutely no connection to anyone in the band so is not a trusted source of information. God only knows where people get some of this stuff from in the first place...
