7 Hey There Delilah - Plain White T's

Other good ones on here too, but this one has a soft spot in my heart.

I think many people knows this song.. It's really nice
Actually Delilah is Delilah DiCrescenzo, a steeplechase runner who lead singer Tom Higgenson met through a friend, In an interview he said " I thought she was the most beautiful girl I had ever seen. I told her ' I have a song about you already ' Obviously, there was no song, But I thought it was smooth"
Tom didn't get the girl, as she was dating somebody and wasn't interested. - Ananya
