The Fray is a band I’ve only recently discovered but I immediately took to them as their sound is very close to my sensibilities. They have a lot of good songs in their discography and even though the recent album Helios was a bit of a dampener, I still have high hopes for them!
Of course it all began with How To Save A Life – the song that is just instantly infectious and sticks with you for a long long time. The music, the lyrics, and the singing come together amazingly; the music starts off very low key but becomes more intense as the song progresses. Singing karaoke to this song is one of my favorite pastimes. 🙂
Now am I the only one on this planet who hasn’t seen Grey’s Anatomy? I found this little gem while browsing Youtube. They apparently did a musical episode with the cast breaking out in songs over the course of the episode. The song How To Save a Life aptly is set in an Operation Theater where the doctors are battling to keep a pregnant woman and her baby alive. I don’t know any of these characters but I thought they did a brilliant job at this! You can read so much from just their eyes!
Be prepared to be hit by a wave of emotions –
And here’s the original. Because it’s just too good!
