Now Playing: That Darn Lake House Song

I have an internal jukebox that is extremely impressionable, especially when a song has an irresistible, melancholy hook.

When Keane's debut album, Hopes and Fears, began to receive airplay in 2004, I was still recovering from chemotherapy – wretchedly sick and tired of feeling wretched, sickly and tired. I limited myself to only one album for wallowing in the mire – and Muse got to me first with their snappy doomsday ditty, "Time Is Running Out" from Absolution.

Luckily for all of us who missed out the first time 'round, the ever-present trailer for The Lake House, a new movie starring Sandra Bullock and Keanu Reeves, features the hauntingly beautiful "Somewhere Only We Know."
