Iconic folk group Crosby, Stills & Nash’s ‘Helplessly Hoping‘ showed up on the soundtrack of the medical drama New Amsterdam this week — New Amsterdam, Season 4, Episode 15, “Two Doors“.
The song was played on the episode as Lewis is imagining his daughter’s wedding.
Crosby, Stills & Nash’s ‘Helplessly Hoping‘ was originally released on the trio’s self-titled studio album way back in 1969.
It has since been re-released on several of the group’s albums over the last 50 years.
The song was written by group member Stephen Stills, and tells the story of a couple who don’t know what to do about their relationship.
The first verse, for instance, is about the man’s confusion:
Wordlessly watching he waits by the window
And wonders at the empty place inside
Heartlessly helping himself to her bad dreams
He worries did he hear a goodbye?
Or even hello?
Since its release, ‘Helplessly Hoping‘ has become one of those iconic Crosby, Stills & Nash songs often performed at concerts, as it really does seem to strike a chord of loneliness in many who hear it.
Listen to Crosby, Stills & Nash’s ‘Helplessly Hoping‘ as heard on last night’s New Amsterdam in the video, and on the group’s 2012 album CSN 2012.
Watch the latest season of New Amsterdam on NBC.
