It was one of those days when I felt like I was happy almost the entire day. Towards the end, which actually came a little late than usual, I was still dancing around, because even by the end, I could not figure out if I was happy because I worked so much or I worked so much because I was happy. Still can’t tell. 😛
I started my day by listening to one of Arijit Singh’s medley, the one at GIMA awards 2016, and there is a part of it which really holds me. I leave everything when I am listening to it. An unusual combination of songs and it just strikes. I can’t really explain how but it does. That is the thing with music and lyrics. You just can’t tell because they speak directly to your soul.
Music has the power to connect people instantly. It does not need any language. It is the ultimate peace maker, a source of mediation and well, instant mood changer. Someone once told me, you listen to the beats when you are happy and you focus on the lyrics when you are sad. Well, maybe. Maybe not.
I consider myself as a Bollywood fan and I absolutely love retro hits – the 80’s to be precise, sung by Kishore Kumar and Mohammad Rafi. I love their lyrics. I love the music. But that does not mean the new ones are behind in any way. I love the new ones with the same heart.
Music is an art. It evolves. The old inspires the new, but change is the only constant and the art of music has always been embracing it beautifully. There will always be all kinds of it, with new ones adding on and old ones staying like gold. 🙂
So, in this post, I would like to share my list of eclectic eight “new” songs, with lyrics absolutely brilliant (as opposed to the common perception that nowadays lyrics are simply put there to fit in!) and music which would strike the chords of your heart. Play yourself to find out if you like them too! 🙂
