Memorized

If you watch “This Is Us” you’ll recognize this beautiful song from the season 4 premiere. The tune is calledMemorized performed by Blake Stadnik, the legally blind actor who plays the grown up version of baby Jack on the show. If you’re a fan of TIS you’ll understand the poignancy of the scene and the relevancy of the lyrics. It was definitely one of the most moving moments from a series that defines moving moments.

According to The Wrap, “Stadnik’s song — which was co-written by This Is Us composer Siddhartha Khosla and Taylor Goldsmith, the lead singer and guitarist from the band Dawes (he’s also Mandy Moore’s husband) — has entered the Top 20 in the U.S. iTunes sales store and is currently No. 14 on the all-genre song sales chart. It’s a stunning achievement for a TV show soundtrack song from an episode that has only aired once.

Here’s a few of my favorite lines from this gorgeous song, followed by music video. Well worth a listen.

“Can one wrong turn give me new direction?
Can one false move bring you one true friend?
Could a stranger ever end up being you?”
