Song about stars, long piano intro, rap


There was a song I was obsessed with in college (2009/2010) that I can’t remember for the life of me and it’s driving me insane! It may have come out around that year or a bit earlier. Definitely a 2000’s song.

From what I remember it had a long piano intro and I think maybe a small rap segment near the end. The piano was beautiful!

It wasn’t a well known band, and I feel like the title had something to do with stars. Like falling stars or dark stars and had a number as well.

This is all I can remember. I just know that I loved it and that it didn’t really make sense lyrically. It felt like it would fit into the alternative/emo/indie genre.

When were you in college? Was the song new at that time? If not, when do you think the song came out? – Chris Sunami – 2017-11-08T15:35:42.270

I was in college in 2009/2010. It may have been a few years older. – Hannah Redding – 2017-11-09T16:17:53.987



I can suggest B.o.B' Airplanes ft. Hayley Williams.

  • It has a piano intro.
  • There are several rap segments by the rapper B.o.B.
  • The chorus says :

    Can we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shootin' stars

Unfortunately that’s not it. Though it was around that same time that I listened to this! It wasn’t popular or on the radio like that was. – Hannah Redding – 2017-11-09T16:24:53.303
