7 Songs From 'Grey's Anatomy' That Will Make You IMMEDIATELY Want To Rewatch It

Let's be real, it should be called Chasing Tears, not "Chasing Cars."

7 Songs From 'Grey's Anatomy' That Will Make You IMMEDIATELY Want To Rewatch It

"Grey's Anatomy" has blessed our television screens for 16, going on 17, years. It has made us cry, smile, and scream. It has shown us what love is and is not. It has taught us about family, friendship, and hope. "Grey's Anatomy" has been a big part of a lot of people's lives, and like most things, music helps brings us back to life's most poignant moments.

Those moments when we cried, and we need to remind ourselves why.

Those moments when we smiled and cheered, and we need a pick-me-up.

Those moments that broke our hearts and chewed them up, but they were so powerful, we need to remember them.

And since "Grey's Anatomy" has one of the most heart-wrenching, heart-warming, heart-fluttering soundtracks in the history of television, the best way to reminisce about this amazing show and all of its powerful lessons and moments is to listen to the songs that defined those scenes.

These seven songs will bring you back to the earlier Grey's days, and I can guarantee you'll be logging into Netflix before you even finish the playlist to rewatch all 16 seasons...

*Disclaimer: Expect spoilers...*

1. "Chasing Cars" by Snow Patrol

Christina Yang

Yang pretty much sums up my emotions when I hear this song. "Chasing Cars" is definitely the "Grey's Anatomy" song, and they seem to play it in nearly every death scene. Listening to this song will 100 percent make you cry, BUT it will also remind you of how powerful the show is and how talented the actors all are.

I know, you're already looking for the remote to turn on Netflix just at the mention of this song...

2. "Keep Me Warm" by Ida Maria

One of my ALL-TIME favorite MerDer moments was Meredith's candle house for Derek. It was so beautiful and heart-warming, and as I listen to "Keep Me Warm," it takes me back to this moment.

The love they had for each other was so rare, and I catch myself daydreaming about that love as this song swims through my ears.

3. "Where Does The Good Go" by Tegan and Sara

Christina Yang and Meredith Grey

One of the happier "Grey's Anatomy" songs that will definitely have you up and dancing just like Meredith and Christina. However, about halfway through, you'll probably remember this was the song that played when Christina said goodbye. Dance through those tears, though, and remember how happy Christina is now!

4. "All I Want" by Kodaline

Mark Sloan

So, I'm sure at this point you're an emotional mess and trying to decide if you're going to rewatch from the beginning or start with your favorite episode, but STICK WITH ME.

Especially with this song - "All I Want" is one of my all-time favorite songs in general, nonetheless in the show. However, it packs a powerful punch when you remember it played when Mark Sloan died... One of the top three saddest deaths on "Grey's Anatomy," no doubt. At least he can be with Lexie now, though.

5. "In My Veins" by Andrew Belle

Miranda Bailey Greys Anatomy

"In My Veins" played during, what I consider to be, one of the best "Grey's Anatomy" episodes to date - 6x24 "Death and All His Friends." The acting was superb. The storyline was emotional and intense. And the soundtrack... just WOW. This song always takes me back to that emotional episode, and let's just say, the tears flow like a waterfall!

6. "Turn To Stone" by Ingrid Michaelson

alex and izzie

This is probably an unpopular opinion, but Alex and Izzie are one of my favorite "Grey's Anatomy" couples. Their wedding was stunning and filled with so much love and happiness that they both deserved. And this song playing in the background made it even more beautiful.

Every time I hear "Turn To Stone," I smile. It's one of those songs that remind you of happier times on the show.

10/10 recommend watching this episode first if you're not going to start rewatching from the beginning!

7. "How To Save A Life" by The Fray

derek shepherd it's a beautiful night to save lives

Another "Grey's Anatomy" classic - this song has played in commercials, during surgeries, and was even the title of McDreamy's infamous final episode. It will get you all up in your feels, but nothing can remind you more of this life-changing show than the The Fray's iconic "How To Save A Life."

Now that we're all emotional, and have already gathered our box of tissues and gallon of ice cream, I think it's time to cry, smile, and learn alongside our favorite characters once again.

Where To Find The Best Coffee Drinks In America, According To A Survey

Here's the coffee shop where you should get your morning brew.


Coffee, for billions of people, is one of the only things that can get us out of bed (after hitting snooze a time or two), especially in 2020. Because, if we're being honest, is there anything that beats a quality cup of coffee on those mornings when all we wanted to do is roll over and go back to sleep? The answer is no. And if you're headed to a coffee shop to pick up your caffeinated beverage, you don't want to sleep on the best coffee drinks in America.

According to LiveShopper Sassie's Coffee Project survey, when it comes to chain coffee shops, there are definitely preferred spots you'll want to hit up for your go-to order — whether you order the classic, frozen, or flavored coffee, an espresso, tea, or other. To figure out the hot spots, 1,000 coffee drinkers across the United States took to LiveShopper's mobile app, PrestoShopper, to answer various questions about their coffee drinking habits and preferences. In return, these survey respondents got money back for their coffee — something any user who downloads the app can do as well (yes, even you).

The Best Bagel Recipes For Every Personality Type, In Case You Need Another Excuse To Eat Carbs

I'll approve of pasta for breakfast any day, but this is more socially acceptable.


I've had times in my life at which I've told myself I need to cut out carbs. Those moments last about a minute or two before I start daydreaming about rice and pasta.

Bagels hold a special place in my heart — for many of my college friends and me, a bagel sandwich was the go-to breakfast after a long night of drinking. Years later, I still love to indulge in the occasional carb-filled breakfast. As much as I love putting in an UberEats order from bed, nothing beats the feeling of pulling some fresh-baked bread or pastries out of the oven.

How Much Of A Coffee Snob You Are, Based On Where You Live

Your state may determine how picky you are about your coffee.


When it comes to coffee, everyone has different criteria for what goes into their "perfect cup." Some caffeine lovers, though, are extra particular when it comes to their beloved beverage. One survey found that the state you're from (or the one you live in now) may play a part in determining how much of a coffee snob you actually are.

LiveShopper Sassie, the company behind this Coffee Project survey, received input from 1,000 coffee drinkers via their mobile app, PrestoShopper, to ask various questions about their coffee drinking habits and preferences. In return, these survey respondents got money back for their coffee — something any user who downloads the app can do as well (yes, even you).

Ariana Grande released her first single called "positions" since "boyfriend" with Social House and it is a BANGER. This song is absolutely incredible and I am SURE you will agree with me once you listen.

For me, chai isn't just what I drink — it's a core part of who I am. Sure, I'll switch it up every now and then with a cup of English Breakfast, Earl Grey, rose, or Darjeeling, but I always come back to chai.

Nearly every tea lover has one tea they repeatedly drink and go back to, whether it's a daily morning ritual or an afternoon pick-me-up. One of my good friends has almost eight cups of jasmine tea every single day — she drinks more tea than water, actually.
