Clouds have been used a lot in art/music, but this song does bittersweet spin on the concept. Sobiech, who was diagnosed with terminal cancer, wrote this song as a goodbye to the love of his life and life itself. Before he passed, however, it began to gain popularity. Sobiech’s Clouds reached topped the charts the day after his passing. It’s a sad song, but simultaneously happy…? Perhaps it can be likened to the idea of clouds taking away all the bad – at least for a little while – and allow one to feel content.
