How do you save a life? Isaac Slade & friends prescribe an open ear, perseverance when the goal isn't in sight, and a lack of compromise in search of the truth. I like it.

The Fray's "How to save a life" is a catchy, thoughtful song. It's no wonder that Grey's Anatomy snapped it up,with its lyrics about losing a friend,regret,mortality. It's not the usual cliched pop song. It's got an infectious beat. Unfortunately,it's been overplayed. "How to save a life" nearly succumbed to overplaying. Still, it's a thoughtful, deep song.

This is a very sad and powerful song, indeed. Of course, it is true that this song is overplayed, but that does not make it less of a beautiful song. The piano is still in my mind. This is the song that got me interested in the Fray.

As with Matchbox Twenty back in the day, The Fray was thought to be a one-hit wonder after the surprise success of "Over My Head," but thanks to Grey's Anatomy, it's fate was sealed. Top 5 success followed, and much radio play ensued. The results were mixed.

Although it was nice to see the band and song do well, after endless radio play, what I'd once thought of as a thoughtful, unique, well-done song, had now turned into, 'it's ok.' That's it, in my mind at least, it has now lost all its meaning and emotion, trading it in for fame and glory. Maybe a bit harsh, but that's what constant radio-play does to a song.

So is the song bad? No. It's actually quite good. I would just call it a victim. So, if you listen to the radio regularly, especially adult alternative, don't get this song. But if not, than you'll probably like it as its success is due to its emotional and overall accessibility.
