Coldplay – Paradise

I think Coldplay have outdone themselves with their latest single, “Paradise” and the music video is touching.

The song itself is more of an anthem, and it is more uplifting than previous singles. The music video follows the lonely journey of an elephant escaping the zoo to join his friends back in the wild in Africa. It touches on animal rights, and also on the loneliness of people. This music video story could be relatable to someone in prison, someone living far away from friends and family or someone longing to get back to our roots.

Which, I think, everyone in our modern age in America feels a longing for. Especially with the advent of technology, people are more alone now and isolated then previously in history. We would think technology would bring us together, but it has made us more isolated, in front of our computers. Even though I’m touching on a different topic than maybe what the music video intended, I very well believe that humans are yearning for that paradise, a place in nature with your closest people you can be a part of, than alone by yourself.

What does this music video mean to you?
