An Obsession

Main Entry:

\äb-ˈse-shən, əb-\
1: a persistent disturbing preoccupation with an often unreasonable idea or feeling

I am admitting here for all the world to see that I have an incurable obsession with Grey's Anatomy. It's truly pathetic. The show has been in decline for over three seasons now, yet I (with legions of other Grey's fans) consistently watch what Shonda Rhimes and her writers put in front of us each week. And let me tell you, if you haven't seen it lately, it's definitely been unreasonable.

One thing however, that hasn't suffered quite as much on the show is the music.

The first few seasons, Grey's always had a very prominently promoted song that invaded the airwaves, commercials, and all that we held dear.

The minute you heard Snow Patrol's Chasing Cars, you knew that it was time for Grey's.

Season three's theme was by far the most prominent of all the Grey's music. The Fray's How to Save a Life became a hit, not only on the show but on the pop charts as well.

Oh angsty, angsty. How I love thee.

Sadly, the last few seasons have not had a theme song as in the good old days. Hopefully tomorrow night they may just pull one out of the cracks.
