"This song just arrived; it wasn't planned on at all. The riff just came out, and I showed it to guitarist Jonny Buckland, and he wrote these cool chords underneath it, and we had a song that was mega." - Chris Martin
"I remember when Chris was doing the vocal, there were quite a few people in the room, and we were all just staring and thinking, 'My God, this is something really special.''' - Ken Nelson (producer)
''We recorded ''Clocks'' very, very fast. The pulsing, cyclical riff was inspired by Muse.'' - Chris Martin
