Here are a couple of songs by the awesome (and in my opinion, highly-underrated) American rock band, The Bravery.
Very creative video, sad lyrics.
One of my favorite songs from The Bravery to date. Love the drums, vocals, strings. The lyrics are a bit depressing and also kinda deep, but the overall upbeat rhythm keeps one from getting too emotional.
I find this one to be the most dynamic; the drums, bass and guitars complement each other neatly. It's also my favorite from the band, and --interestingly enough-- it's the "highest charting modern rock single" for the Bravery.
