"Yellow" is a song by British alternative rock band Coldplay. The band wrote the song and co-produced it with British record producer Ken Nelson for their debut studio album, Parachutes (2000). The song's lyrics are a reference to the band's lead singer Chris Martin's unrequited love.
The song was recorded in March 2000, and released in June that same year as the second single from Parachutes, following " Shiver", and the lead single in the United States.

Yellow is a four-volume yaoi manga by Makoto Tateno, published in English by Digital Manga Publishing. It tells the story of two elite drug "snatchers" (couriers), Taki and Goh, mainly about the love and adventures they share together.
This manga does not involve a seme-uke relationship that is commonly present in and/or attributed to the genre of yaoi. Instead, both males are represented as equals in terms of power and physical appearance. Taki is actually presented as decidedly heterosexual while Goh is a homosexual. In the sexual aspect of the manga, it mainly focuses on Goh's insistent advances on Taki, and Taki's subsequent reluctance.
The title "Yellow" means to represent their relationship and their job because of the colors of a traffic light: green means go, red means stop, and yellow is a warning of risk. The manga itself is a blend of adventure, romance, and high tension.
