You’d think that people would have had enough of silly love songs.
But I look around me and I see it isnt so.
Some people wanna fill the world with silly love songs.
And whats wrong with that?
Silly Love Songs by Paul McCartney
Once, every few months or so it seems a song strikes a chord in me and becomes a favourite….. until the next one comes around. But the old ones are not forgotten. I’ve found that at first I dont hear the words and what creates that immediate impact is the melody. It’s got to be that else why would I have favourites in languages I dont understand? Familiarity is a factor but I think the key is the melody and the passion with which it is sung. Does this happen to you too?
current favourite hindi song
Kabhi kabhi aditi zindagi mein yuhi koi apna lagta hai,
Kabhi kabhi aditi wo bichad jaaye to ek sapna lagta hai,
Aise mein koi kaise apne aasuon ko behne se roke?
Aur kaise koi soch le everything’s gonna be ok?
Kabhi kabhi to lage zindagi mein rahi naa khushi aur naa mazaa,
Kabhi kabhi to lage har din mushkil aur har pal ek sazaa,
Aise mein koi kaise muskuraye, kaise hass de khush hoke?
Aur kaise koi soch le everything gonna be ok?
Soch zara jaane jaa tujhko hum kitna chahte hai,
Rote hai hum bhi agar teri aankhon mein aasu aate hai,
Gaana to aata nahi hai magar phir bhi hum gaate hai,
Ki aditi maan kabhi , kabhi saare jahan mein andhera hota hai,
Lekin raat ke baad hi to savera hota hai..
and the one just before that
