Heard an old song w/ little personal meaning but felt inexplicably sad

Heard the 1995 Goo Goo Dolls "Name" while shopping the other day and was struck by an inexplicable mood of sadness hearing it. While I liked the song when it came out the 90's, it wasn't something I loved or had deep meaning to me. It's not associated with anything or anyone important. Quite frankly, it was 90's background noise for me. I can think of so many other 90's songs that have impactful meaning. Yet there I was feeling massively sullen for the rest of the day. Maybe I have some subconscious connection to the song that isn't coming to the surface. Kind of feels like waking up from a confusing dream.

Anyone else experience this with a seemingly insignificant song?

And even though the moment passed me by
I still can't turn away
'Cause all the dreams you never thought you'd lose
Got tossed along the way
And letters that you never meant to send
Get lost or thrown away

And now we're grown up orphans
That never knew their names
We don't belong to no one
That's a shame

If you could hide beside me
Maybe for a while
And I won't tell no one your name
And I won't tell 'em your name

And scars are souvenirs you never lose
The past is never far
Did you lose yourself somewhere out there
Did you get to be a star
And don't it make you sad to know that life
Is more than who we are

We grew up way too fast
And now there's nothing to believe
And reruns all become our history
A tired song keeps playing on a tired radio

And I won't tell no one your name
And I won't tell 'em your name

I won't tell 'em your name
Mmm, mmm, mmm
I won't tell 'em your name, ow

I think about you all the time
But I don't need the same
It's lonely where you are, come back down
And I won't tell 'em your name

If you're into that sort of thing, I would again recommend watching old episodes of Cold Case (currently free on Hulu). The soundtrack for that show has a little something for everyone from practically every decade up until the time the series was made (mid-to-late 2000's, and they have a few songs from those years too).

Here's the full soundtrack listing (of all 1141 songs!), for anyone who's curious:

... there was an episode on the other day that really got to me, because of the closing music, which was this: [www.youtube.com]
(I'd never heard this particular song before, and yet it perfectly fit the ending scene, strongly evocative, and particularly the part where he sings the middle portion containing the song's title)

Daniel, by Elton John. It was playing when I finished The Hobbit.

Maybe it was a song from a time period in your life when things were less complicated and perhaps more enjoyable. So it made you nostalgic for simpler times even though you can't place it in any context.

I may have to do a deeper dive into that idea.

I cry when I hear that. It was my brothers middle name…

I think that song was written for the soundtrack for City of Angles with Nicholas Cage and Meg Ryan. The movie is arguably as cheesy as can be, yet I like it and I may have shed a tear or two at the end. You might even say that the movie with this same song drew the same response from me that you're describing.

Edit: the song I'm thinking of is "Iris". It's the same band, and the song is similar.

Iris
Song by Goo Goo Dolls

And I'd give up forever to touch you
'Cause I know that you feel me somehow
You're the closest to heaven that I'll ever be
And I don't want to go home right now
And all I can taste is this moment
And all I can breathe is your life
And sooner or later, it's over
I just don't wanna miss you tonight
And I don't want the world to see me
'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am
And you can't fight the tears that ain't coming
Or the moment of truth in your lies
When everything feels like the movies
Yeah, you bleed just to know, you're alive
And I don't want the world to see me
'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am
And I don't want the world to see me
'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am
And I don't want the world to see me
'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am
I just want you to know who I am
I just want you to know who I am
I just want you to know who I am

Was listening to the SiriusXM Classic Vinyl channel one day a few years ago when this song played (my name) followed immediately by Simon & Garfunkel’s “Cecilia” (my ex-wife’s name). Only time in my life that's ever happened.



It is what it is.

It is. Watch "Wings of Desire" the original version in German. Iris is a really good song.

The phenomenon of being deeply affected by something that has no apparent connection is sometimes called being triggered. There is a reason for triggers, but it can be hard to figure them out because they come from our subconscious minds.
