Snow Patrol’s “Chasing Cars” is one of those lightning rod songs that flies out of the magic of the creator’s mind and blows everyone away the first time they hear it. Like Halley’s Comet or a meteor shower. Zoom, the music enters your brain and you are in love.
What makes the song zing is the passionate and profound fusion of dreamy lyrics and music. It’s all about calling a time out in life and allowing the mind to free float. To draw cartoons. To imagine the impossible. To embrace the romance of life. To do nothing and in the process to do the most powerful thing in existence. To think with no rules. No preconceptions. No limitations.
So why has it been wiped off the agenda at virtually every company on the planet? Why is hardly anyone ever told;
“stay home today and just think,”
or“sit under a tree and chase cars”?
