Mention a Song

November 26, 2013

imagesDear Reader,

Of late I have been in a ‘explore music’ mode. Please leave the link/title/audio of a song that you like/that immediately comes to your mind in the comment box as I so want to listen to and appreciate what others like and are listening to. A link or a mere mention of the song should suffice. However, a brief introduction to the specific charm of the song for you, if added to the comment, would make it all the more interesting for me. Would appreciate if it is just one song. Language, mood, country, genre, instruments no bar at all! I do wish to write a post on the songs that I receive from you. Thanks in advance for paying attention!

Hoping to ‘listen’ from you!

    Undoubtedly, selecting one song is a tough call.
    I used to pre-select a song and keep the record ready in-playing mode, when I would be in last phase of getting ready to move out of the home to go to office (during 1973 to 1979). Each day would a one song that would expectedly take my spirits to the 7th heaven, just as I step out of the home. This in turn used to provide a energy boost for power-planning the day’s activity during the travel-time in the bus.
    Here is one such song:
    Masti Men Chhed Ke Tarana Koi Dilka, Aaj Lootayega Khajana Koi Dil Ka – Kaifi Azmi, Madan Mohan, Mohammad Rafi – Haqueequat –
    the song has tremendous feeling of care-free moments ahead.

    It’s a gazal by Pankaj Udhas, which describes the love of a boy for a girl in the utter simplicity and innocence.
    “Chandi jaisa rang tera….”
    I love it! :)

    definitely chosing one song is definitely a tough call, since there are 10000 songs for every mood of yours, still Ill try to stick to mentioning one song..
    “coming back to life” by pink floyd always takes me back to the memory lanes , the words echo my thoughts.
    Recently I heard Khumaar by papon in coke studio and iv heard it 100000 times on loop. his voice is a treat for your ears, and the song is a feast for your soul. do listen

    I’ll mark my age with a classic song from France: one of my favorites as I continue to age:

    Edith Piaf – Non, je ne regrette rien – (listen to her in an ORIGINAL recording)

    youtube says:

    ‘Piaf dedicated her recording of the song to the French Foreign Legion. At the time of the recording, France was engaged in a military conflict, the Algerian War (1954–1962), and the 1st REP (1st Foreign Parachute Regiment) — which backed a temporary putsch of 1961 by the French military against the civilian leadership of Algeria — adopted the song when their resistance was broken. The leadership of the Regiment was arrested and tried but the non-commissioned officers. Corporals and Legionnaires were assigned to other Foreign Legion formations. They left the barracks singing the song, which has now become part of the French Foreign Legion heritage and is sung when they are on parade.’

    Even if dedicated to the french Foreign Legion this song means much in living a life of no regrets.
    If you want to, I’ll translate the lyrics into English for you. ( please do not trust the automatic online translations ..!!! ..)

    Regards, Vera

    i am a songaholic so one song will never come into my mind, a nice medley of hindi, english and bengali songs come together, holding hands but not singing chorus!

    dont have links though!

    I always thought “Dust in the Wind” had thoughtful words and a nice melody….

  18. December 7, 2013 4:30 am

    And I found this combination of flute music and dance (from 1926) when I was taking a Philosophy/Religion class at the university. The music and dance tells the story without words…….

    Oooops….forgot to put the link!

    HI Tears for Fears Everybody wants to rule the world is what i am listening a lot to nowadays…

  21. December 13, 2013 12:02 am

    I suggest this tune not necessary for the genre of music but for the lyrics. I’ve always enjoyed Jamey Johnson’s lyrical ability. Enjoy.

    Manmarziyan, from the Hindi movie Lootera. It’s soft, mellow and peaceful.

    Kwaja mere khwaja …. This mesmerizing sufi song inspired by Moinuddin Chishti (Persian: چشتی‎,Urdu: چشتی‎ – Čištī) (Arabic: ششتى‎ – Shishti) was born in 1141 and died in 1236 CE. Also known as Gharīb Nawāz “Benefactor of the Poor”

    Enjoy you may easily go in to a trance :)

A Journey Called Life ...

“Never forget that once upon a time, in an unguarded moment, you recognized yourself as a friend.” - E. Gilbert


Many physicists today postulate the existence of multiple universes, even when sober. We used to live in a world of infinite possibilities. Now we live in an infinite number of worlds. India shines. Democracy thrives. The economy booms. A hundred flyovers bloom. This is not that India. If you see your picture here one day, don’t worry. That’s not you.
