Q.  Dear Oracle,

Is there a place I can download the song Animals? I really like the song but can't find it on iTunes.

Much appreciation!

Hmm, I found it no problem. It's the b side to Clocks - I searched for that and voila!

Q.  Hi Oracle, I just saw a video of Coldplay playing Animals Live. I noticed Chris didn't have any shoes on??? What's that about?

I chose this question for the simple reason that it amazes me how two people from different parts of the world can send in a question around the same time that both feature questions about videos that lead me to reply with clips from the same Big Day Out performance. How mad is that?!?
You see, the question I previously answered about me seeing another live video of Sparks with Guy sitting down was this. It also shows Chris with no shoes on.
If you were watching Animals live, I'm thinking it may have been like this video from the same day.
Spooky eh?

Anyway, that means the answer to this question is: it was hot there back in 2001.

Q.  Dear Oracle, when did Coldplay write the b-side Animals?

Animals was written after Parachutes but before the recording sessions for A Rush of Blood to the Head. It was performed live at the end of the tour and they did record a demo version for potential inclusion on the second album but as you see, it didn't make it and turned up later as the b-side to Clocks.
