So, I just sobbed my eyes out when @coldplay pulled out “Fix You” in their second #SNL performance tonight, because I listened to that song on my way to work before taking FMLA when my dad was dying of cancer.— Kealeen Griffin (@keltothelean) February 5, 2023
"Fix You" has a way of touching fans' hearts. As Rolling Stone noted, the song was initially written by Chris Martin about the time he spent comforting his ex-wife, Gwyneth Paltrow, when her father passed away.prevnext
