Day 10 – A Song that Makes You Sad

Chasing Cars by Snow Patrol

Year Released: 2006

For years and years, I couldn’t figure out why I’d feel so sad every time I hear Chasing Cars. I studied the lyrics and concluded that no, it isn’t a sad song. So why do I go into this temporary feeling of misery every time?

Just late last year, I decided to watch Grey’s Anatomy again from Season 1. And there I found my answer. Chasing Cars was the background song in one of the saddest moments of the show, the scene when Izzie finds Denny dead after he just proposed. Chances are I didn’t even know the song when I first watched that episode. My subconscious just registered it and associated it with an overwhelming sadness given that I cried more than what’s acceptable while watching that scene.

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

So there you go. How about you guys? What’s a sad song for you? 🙂
