Coldplay – Charlie Brown (2012)

Scroll down to content

According to the band, “Charlie Brown” was the first song recorded during sessions for the band’s then-upcoming fifth studio album, with the intention of being included on what later became Mylo Xyloto (which, under an unofficial, working title, was simply known as LP5 at the time). The song takes its name from the fact that it originally included lyrics inspired by the comic strip Peanuts, whose protagonist was a young boy named Charlie Brown. During the writing and recording sessions of Mylo Xyloto, the song took on other names, such as “Cartoon Heart” and “Cartoon Head”, before eventually being titled “Charlie Brown”.
