After yesterday’s long trip to Napa and back….I was kind a tired and was just going through Manish’s blog when I saw that I have been tagged :D…well its not so often that Manish involves himself in the tag-game so when he tagged me…I readily accepted and not only that but also the topic is Music :D…how can I be away from my soul – Music !!!!
Hence…it goes like this:
1. Your favourite lyricist and the lyrics you remember the most..
This is a very tough question specially when a person has more than one as favourite… :D…and I want to give credit to all my fav lyricsts…that’s just the way I am…want to give equal credits 😀 though it’s a tough job to select…as there are more than one of these each lyricts creations 😀
YEH KAISI CHAAP QADMOON KI SUNAYEE DE RAHI HAI
KOI AAYA HAI YA KOI UTAR K JA RAHA HAI
YEH MERI ZINDAGI…HAI
NA YEH DASTAK DE K KAHTI HAI
BINA SAAHIL K BAHTI HO
AKELE KAISAY RAHTI HO
WAHAM HAI JO KOI DILSE GUZAR K JA RAHA HAI
KOI AAYA HAI YA KOI UTAR K JA RAHA HAI
[For my friends who don’t understand Hindi – 😉 poet says that his life always without a knock says- without any shore, you flow…how do u live such a lonely life…but then there is this imagination or conjecture who walks by my heart and it seems someone has come or someone just left by – around there]
mai.n ne dil se kahaa
ai diivaane bataa
jab se ko_ii milaa
tuu hai khoyaa huaa
ye kahaanii hai kyaa
hai ye kyaa silasilaa
ai diivaane bataa
[I asked my heart, hey madman tell me since you have met someone you are always lost, tell me what’s this story all about and what’s this sequence tell me madman]
Khush huaa ai dil ke muhabbat to nibhaa dii tuune
log uja.D jaate hai.n anjaam se pahale pahale
[am happy for my heart at least it fulfilled the part of loving, as people waste there entire life before it gets to the end of it]
2. Your favourite song on friendship..
I don’t know but whenever I think or listen to this song from ‘Sholay-movie’ it makes me very emotional as it reminds me of my friends and the relation and the emotion that I share with them….
Ye dosti hum nahi todenge, todenge dam magar tera saath na chorenge 😀
[This friendship of ours we will not break, life may break but will not break the companionship]
3. Which song are you humming today?
Phir gulaabon ka mausam khila hai
Phir koi yaad aane laga hai
Dur khulti hui khidkiyon mein
Koi angadaiyan le raha hai – sung by Jaswinder Singh and yeah not Jagu 😀
[Its again the season of roses that’s blooming, and at such time it reminds me of someone, seems like far away through those opened windows, someone is taking out there tiredness…its more or less poetic word as for a women when she gets up in the morning from her sleep…]
4. One song which brings tears to your eyes
Tujh se naraaz nahi zindagii,hairan hoon mein,
Tere masoom sawalon se pareshaan hoon mein!
Jine ke liye socha hee nahi dard sambhalne honge
Muskurayein to muskurane ke karz ootarne honge
Muskuraon kabhi to lagta hai jaise honton pe karz rakha hai
[am not unhappy with you life, but am surprized. Coz of your innocent questions which makes me worried. As I never thought to live I have to preserve all my pains and to smile, I will have to repay the interest and hence when I smile also I feel as if some debt is kept on me]
This song specially when Anup Ghoshal sings it literally makes me feel the poet’s heart!!! No matter how much I have tried but this song always drags me to listen to the lyrics carefully and think deep into the meaning of it!!!! I love this song!!!!
Music was my refuge. I could crawl into the space between the notes and curl my back to loneliness. ~Maya Angelou, Gather Together in My Name
5. A song which gives you hope,reason to try again and again,a reason to say that life is beautiful:)…
Someone related this song to my personality…until then I never heard this ghazal but when I did…I felt proud about the way person thinks about me and the way I reflect on my people’s mind :D…but then this one really makes me feel for three reasons…1. ofcourse that person related this to me and 2. the lyrics and 3. its sung by Jagu 😀
Zindagi mein sada muskurate raho
Faasle kam karo dil milate raho
[In life always keep smiling, even though there is distance keep the heart united]
6.When you want to be with yourself,silent and content but with music,which song would that be?
This song always touches my inner chord and believe me the lyrics and the way Jagu has sung this…takes me far away from this world…one can listen to this on my radio blog
muu.Nh kii baate.n sune har ko_ii, dil kaa dard na jaane kaun aavaazo.n ke baazaaro.n me.n Khaamoshii pahachaane kaun
vo meraa aa_iinaa hai mai.n us kii parachhaa_ii huu.N mere hii ghar me.n rahataa hai, mujh jaisaa hii jaane kaun
[What we say from mouth everyone listens but no one listens the pains of the heart, in the midst of noisy market no one recognizes silence. That seems my mirror and am its shadow, in my house there lives someone who resembles like me but don’t know who?]
Without music life would be a mistake. ~Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche
7.If you have to express your love for someone with a song which would that be?
It’s a very old song…ofcourse its near to my heart coz of Gulzar…and its sung by Late Hemant Kumar- I love his voice and the gesture with which his voice takes waves 😀
tum pukaar lo, tumhaaraa intajaar hain khwaab chun rahee hain raat bekaraar hain honthh pe liye huye, dil kee baat hum jaagate rahenge aaur, kitanee raat hum muftasar see baat hai, tum se pyaar hain
dil bahal to jaayegaa, is khayaal se haal mil gayaa tumhaaraa, apane haal se raat ye karaar kee, bekaraar hain tumhaaraa intajaar hai.. pukar lo ..
[Call me as am waiting for you, night is restless as my dreams are picking up! Just one thing on my lips that’s from my heart, how many nights will I be awake like this – its just the simple and gratis matter that I love you! I can console my heart by knowing your situation in this restless night..its all that I am waiting for you so please call me… some where there ;)]
8. Five Songs which you listen to the most ?
This is something which I don’t think is easier for any music lover…coz one listens to there favs but also explores…more and more…of it! But since its only five …to be listed here am going as: since its about Hindi music, am not adding my English craze! 😀
· Dil ko thaama oonka daman tham ke
· Paas rehata hai dur rehata hai
· Gulshan ki faqat phulon se nahi
· Ab to hai tum se har khushi apni
· Do deewane shehar mein
Music is vibration. So are human beings at their most basic level and so “Music Lover” is an expression of the sensual blending of two forms of the same thing intertwined in an expression of love.
Play the music, not the instrument. ~Author Unknown
