Christ, guys, I've been hearing this song on TV, on the Radio, everywhere and can't figure out what it's called because I hardly ever hear the lyrics. I wish I had a keyboard to duplicate the notes, but alas, i'm going to have to go by memory or something like it.

I heard it today during VH1's Skinniest Celebs, and I know I've heard it on a bunch of other commercials. Something tells me I heard it on the ONE episode of Grey's Anatomy I ever watched (the season before's finale? I forget) but it's just this piano rift with lots of reverb that kind of gives you the sense of melancholy, loneliness, or longing without diving into a C-minor key.

With my limited knowledge of keys myself, I can't pinpoint it, but I know it's not C major or minor. It's just two notes, then two slightly flatter notes, then a bit sharper notes, then back down to the flatter notes, and it keeps repeating in this heavenly, hypnotic state. If I had to guess, I'd say it goes "C, C, B, B, E, E, B, B." But then, I'm half-tone deaf and I haven't taken piano lessons in years.


I know I'm being horribly vague, but normally I find my songs via lyrics search engines, and I don't know any lyrics to this song. Please please please help me if you know what I"m talking about?

BTW, I think the song came out semi-recently and is sung by a guy, if that helps at all.

The only advice I can give is that some radio stations have a number you can send a text message to, and in return they'll send you a list of the last couple songs that they played.

But uh, that's a pretty complex thing to prepare for. 8D

Ah no, that's not it. :( I appreciate the suggestion, though!

Aw, no, actually Kyrra found it for me-- it's a song called "Everybody's Changing" by Keane. I appreciate you trying to find it for me, though. :)
