Tragedy: A Crack Sherlock S4 Meta

[Dedicated to everyone in this bar but especially to that one blogger who reblogged my Sherlock and Granada’s The Last Vampyre parallels speculation with a comment ‘finally an S4 meta that is not shippy’. Have a shippy meta now, dear.]

This thread inspired me to revisit the Bee Gees connection to Sherlock. Apart from the obvious ‘Stayin’ Alive’ being Moriarty’s ringtone, character song and the biggest question of his life, there was that bit from one of the SDCC 2016 Sherlock panels when Moffat and Co were asked to name a song for the show and its characters. Steven’s song for the show was, naturally, ‘Tragedy’.  Which is a song about someone realizing that they are lost and cannot function on their own, without someone they love and that a life without love is a tragedy. I have listened to it around fifty times this morning and I don’t know about you, but to me, filled with the sounds of explosives and performed as if on the edge of super heightened emotions, ‘Tragedy’ looks like an accurate description of how Series 4 will unfold [bonus points for the lyrics being gender neutral, by the way].  As I guide you through its lyrics break-down, keep in mind: this meta is crack (but probably less so than initially intended). I also recommend you listen to the song as you read the following.

“Tragedy”

Here I lie
In a lost and lonely part of town

Held in time
In a world of tears I slowly drown

Goin’ home
I just can’t make it all alone

I really should be holding you
Holding you
Loving you loving you

Tragedy
When the feeling’s gone and you can’t go on

It’s tragedy
When the morning cries and you don’t know why
It’s hard to bear
With no-one to love you you’re
Goin’ nowhere
Tragedy
When you lose control and you got no soul

It’s tragedy

When the morning cries and you don’t know why
It’s hard to bear
With no-one beside you you’re
Goin’ nowhere

Night and day

There’s a burning down inside of me

Burning love
With a yearning that won’t let me be
Down I go
And I just can’t take it all alone

I really should be holding you
Holding you
Loving you loving you

Stayin' Alive (Moriarty Edit)

Moriarty’s Ringtone (Edited)

(It’s 30 seconds long (I think that’s the maximum time a ringtone is allowed to go for), and doesn’t have the bit in the intro before the ‘Ah ah ah’ bit.)
