Apar tagged me a couple of weeks back asking me to link up ten of my favorite songs in my native tongue, Hindi and English. At least that is how I understood it. I am most definitely not going to list 30 here but thought I will take this up so I can look back on the songs that have touched me in different ways.
Mere Khwabo Mein Jo Aaye – DDLJ
Yes. Really. This song personified my life around the time I was eager to be in love. I loved the song and the lyrics because it made sense to me in that phase of my life.
I was blown away when I heard its lyrics because I was so in love with the idea of love. It was like I was just waiting for someone to walk into my life so I could put a face to all that I had imagined my partner was going to be.
I realized what a die hard romantic I was when I heard this song. I really did want to know some one this way. 🙂
This song is from a time in my life when my best friend was my headset and my walkman and casettes borrowed from friends. I have never seen the video of this song but I always imagined it to be very nice.
Loved this song the very first time I saw it. The picturization, peppy music and the fresh faces made this one of my all time faves.
My current favorite. I love the haunting music and the melody of the score
Don’t you know you are beautiful – Kelli Pickler
I know this now. Wish I did years back.
Aathaankarai Marame – Kizhakku Cheemaiyile
A song I have listened to many, many times and appeals to me just like that.
One of those songs that made an impression the first time I saw it.
Love, love, love this song for the lyrics.
I guess I could go on and this might not even be indicative of my true favorites. My faves change based on my current mood and the list I have here is what crossed my mind at the time I started typing this up.
What I realized doing this is that most songs that stay with me do for its lyrics rather than the music. I have to understand what the song is about before I enjoy it. While I am not tagging anyone, if you do decide to take this up, leave me a comment. I’d love to see what you come up with.
Have a fun week ahead everyone!
