The Scientist

"The Scientist" by Coldplay is performed in the original key of F major. Released in 2002 as part of their album "A Rush of Blood to the Head," the song was written by all four members of the band: Chris Martin, Jonny Buckland, Guy Berryman, and Will Champion. Coldplay, the British rock band formed in 1996, consists of Chris Martin (vocals, piano, guitar), Jonny Buckland (guitar), Guy Berryman (bass), and Will Champion (drums). "The Scientist" is known for its melancholic melody and introspective lyrics, exploring themes of love, regret, and redemption. The song's music video gained widespread acclaim for its reverse narrative, with Martin singing the lyrics backward while walking backward through various scenes.
