explaining the figures
A rush of blood to the head- Coldplay (2002)
The song image indicates the general theme of the album. It is about sadness, about the time running out, ignoring the visible signs, and pain. This pain can be similar to the head rush one experiences when they stand upright from sitting position fast. The half-cut head, the spikes, the black and white imagery, all add to this general feeling.
Mumford and Sons 9- Babel (2012)
The image of the song counteracts how seriously the band takes itself and its music, depicting the band sitting on a bench while behind them, in front of a pub, there is much celebration, dancing, a guy in a crazy costume, and even a horse. The band wanted the Babel cover to capture the spirit of their “Gentlemen of the Road” tour, particularly its “party vibes.
A year without rain-Selena Gomez (2010)
“Can you feel me when I think about you with every breath I take” The image is about a girl to whom nothing matters. But she falls in love with someone and loves him so much that she thinks she has just been roaming, but when he comes in her life everything changes.
Kendrick Lamar – To Pimp a Butterfly (2015)
No pimps, no butterflies, just two dozen or so mostly African-American men and boys of all ages celebrating in front of the White House. Lamar’s idea was taking those close to him “around the world and letting them see things that I’ve experienced,” such as the White House, where he met with Barack Obama, the first American president to embrace hip-hop.
Radiohead – Kid A (2000)
The result was an image that Donwood says was intended to suggest “landscapes of power,” specifically “some cataclysmic power existing in the landscape.” Donwood was successful because “some sort of cataclysmic power” is a succinct and perfect explanation of Kid A.
