Hands Open by Snow Patrol.

I started listening to Snow Patrol in college, though the band has been around for quite some time. Their fourth album, Eyes Open, really gave them recognition with the song Chasing Cars. Their third single, Hands Open, was released in October of 2006. The fall of my Freshman year.

The song hit #21 on Billboard’s Modern Rock Tracks but it wasn’t as nearly successful as Chasing Cars. Three more singles were released from the album but they didn’t get much radio play on the East Coast. I think they’ve done better in the UK because I remember the track, Open Your Eyes, was featured on NOW (That’s What I Call Music) 66, a UK version of the compilation album in the US. They’ve also had other tracks on NOW albums.
