The Nine Inch Nails track ‘The Day The World Went Away‘ was featured on Person of Interest last week — (Series 5, Episode 10 – “The Day The World Went Away“, May 31, 2016), the series’ 100th episode.
And a heartbreaking episode that could not have had a more beautiful track to accompany it.
But this Nine Inch Nails song is especially beautiful with its quiet beginning, slow, sad pace and featuring just a piano, guitar and lead singer Trent Reznor’s agonized vocals.
‘The Day The World Went Away‘ is from Nine Inch Nails’ 1999 album The Fragile, yet even today is still the highest-placing single for the industrial rock band.
Listen to it below. Gorgeous.
