Speed of sound - Coldplay

Released as the first single from Coldplay's third album 'X&Y', the lyric of the song 'Speed of sound' was written by singer Chris Martin about his daughter Apple. He explains: 'That's a song where we were listening to a lot of Kate Bush last summer, and we wanted a song which had a lot of tom-toms in it. I just had my daughter up also, and was kind of feeling in a sense of awe and wonderment, so the song is kind of a Kate Bush song about miracles.'

The single was released in May 2005. It reached number 2 in the UK, being held off the top spot by Crazy Frog's cover of 'Axel F'. In America, the single peaked at number 8 and in the Netherlands it reached number 6.
