No this post is not about this month but about the song ‘July Maadham‘, which I am listening to on repeat mode now.
I was in my 8th semester and had to study for some exam. But I didn’t feel like studying at all. Now don’t ask me if I have ever studied for the semester exams willingly. 😛 When I was trying hard to concentrate, the music player started playing this song. (Most of the times, I used to either watch TV or listen to music while studying) And then what happened was I started studying with full concentration! I started listening to this song on repeat mode and continued studying.
Now one may wonder how the hell did listening to lines like ‘July maadham vandhaal jODi serum vayasu‘, which, by the way, SPB and Anupama would have sung in an amazing way with all the feel and energy needed for it, would cause any motivation to make one study! 😛 aruvai apart, isn’t music even above lyrics? It had been quite sometime since I listened to this song before that day and somehow the song sounded so beautiful like never before! Just listen to the guitar that is there throughout the song and all those wonderful guitar and piano interludes and foot-tapping beats! Amazing! The music somehow seemed to give me the much-needed motivation. That’s the magic of Rahman’s music!! Rahman rocks! 🙂
It was only from that day that this song, from being one of my favourite songs, suddenly became one of my moooost favourite songs. 😀 From that day onwards, it is only rarely that I don’t listen to this song on repeat mode once I start listening to it! I love this song! I have been listening to it on loop for more than an hour now!
