Piano Chords: Yellow by Coldplay


Awhile back I posted some videos of a few piano players playing Yellow-by-Coldplay

Then I started making a mental list  of all the songs that had the word "yellow" in it. I just love the  happy color  because it is so cheery and bright.

Here's the list I came up with. Let me know if you think of any others.

1. Yellow Rose of Texas
2. Tie a Yellow Ribbon Round the Old Oak Tree
3. Yellow Submarine
4. Mellow Yellow
5. Yellow by Coldplay
6. Follow the Yellow Brick Road
