The Lyrics

A tribute to the most overplayed song of all time, "Chasing Cars" by Snow Patrol.
Pop music's not bad, it's never dark
But I just can't take much more
Whenever this song comes to my ear
I always run out the door

It sold great, this single
But it's gone too far
It raised the radio bar

So now I'm smashing you, oh Chasing Cars
Not that it's bad, it's just overplayed
So now you're dead, oh Chasing Cars
S.P.* should see what this song's done to me
Chasing Cars

Wrote this about you, radio drones
This tune is getting so old
Each time it comes on, I'll flee in fear
How much more of this crazy song!?

And now that's you're No. 1,
I hope that you're glad
You've driven me mad!!!

So now I'm smashing you, oh Chasing Cars
Not that it's bad, it's just overplayed
So now you're dead, oh Chasing Cars
S.P.* should see what this song's done to me
Chasing Cars
* Snow Patrol, the band that did Chasing Cars.

And yet another otherwise tolerable pop song goes the way of the Overplayed boneyards... RIP

I keep hearing CC on YouTube where they use it for movie tributes. The first time I heard CC was when I was watching a YouTube clip on the movie "The Constant Gardener", but I think they changed the song in the vid though...Great parody! 5's!

Thanks for the song. And while you're at it, feel free to destroy the show responsible for CC being overplayed, "Grey's Anatomy".

AFW: Chasing Cars is the song that goes "If I lay here, if I just lay here, would you lie with me and just forget the world?". Open Arms is an 80s power ballad.
SOTM: Seriously?! I'm nominated for July's SOTM?! GLORY HALLELUJAH!!! I don't watch Grey's Anatomy, I just heard the song overplayed on radio. You don't know how happy this SOTM nomination makes me.
