Snow Patrol was one of many bands to release a greatest hits album in 2009; they went with a more non-traditional set up. This is a double album, with the first disc being songs you know and love; while the second is live versions of their songs, and even some pre-Snow Patrol songs from Gary Lightbody. Today’s Spotlight song was originally released on the band’s 2006 album Eyes Open, and is being used in the trailer for the forthcoming movie Dear John.
Reaction to “Set the Fire To the Third Bar” was mostly positive. Creed said, “I’m very happy to hear that on the radio.” Julianna said, “That hurt my ears!” Sarah countered, “I thought it was awesome!” Jen texted, “love it great sound”. And Amber’s message read, “LOVE LOVE LOVE this song!” One person sent in, “i found it annoying”.
