An extremely common trope where somebody is recounting a painful story, having a tragic flashback, or is overall in a very sad mood. Whenever one wants to punctuate a feeling of sadness, tragic music is played in the background and it will usually be a violin. Though it is often used as just plain background music, this trope is often lampshaded and parodied by the presence of an actual violinist who happens to be behind our protagonists during their moment of tragedy.
