One of the great opportunities to curating this playlist, is selecting songs from any genre and/or decade that echoes the warmth of the soul. One of the best feelings in the world is to gaze into the night sky and feel one with the universe, and a song that perfectly embodies that feeling is Coldplay’s “A Sky Full of Stars.” “A Sky Full of Stars” was released in 2014 as the third single from Coldplay’s sixth album “Ghost Stories.” The band co-wrote and co-produced the song with Avicii whom was responsible for the beautiful piano sections of the track.
When I first heard this track, I thought, WOW, this song perfectly encompasses the feeling of being free and one with the sky, easily one of my favorite Coldplay tracks. This track blends the musical instrumentation of the late Avicii and the distinctive voice of lead singer Chris Martin. Described as a EDM track with house influences. A piano-centric song, the track opens as a piano ballad, with a progressive house-influenced electronic music playing in between the verses. The piano melodies of this song are my favorite; it’s what grabs your attention immediately. The composition of this track is what makes it fit perfectly on this playlist this week. If you are looking for a special track to escape into the day or night, I believe this is the perfect pick for you!
