Last Monday, Coldplay inserted a line from “Pure Imagination” at the end of their song, “The Scientist”. “Pure Imagination” was Wilder’s signature song from the 1971 movie musical, Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory, which is considered to be one of his best roles. The actor died of complications from Alzheimer’s at the age of 83.
The band tweeted a video of Chris Martin being surrounded by colorful lights singing: “Come with me and we’ll be in a world of pure imagination”.
