I recently transferred some of my favourite songs that I haven’t listened to for quite sometime, to my mobile. So, I have almost stopped listening to radio now. The next three paras of this post is what I typed in my mobile as a message when I was travelling home from work after I pressed the play button in the music player with the random option turned on. 🙂
As the bus travels down the East Coast Road at God-knows-what speed, I am enjoying my journey listening to Rahman’s songs. 🙂 Pachchai KiLigaL – I am listening to it after a long time. I love everything about it – the humming in the beginning, lovely lines like ‘naan innoru piravi unnai petraal innum aanandam’, the interlude/music at around 2 minutes.
Munching a Dairy Milk Eclairs, listening to Jiya Jale ( wonderful beats and flute interludes 🙂 ), cool breeze caressing my face (surprisingly the person sitting next to me has allowed me to keep the window fully open!), pachai kiLigaL ending and MalargaLe playing next and the beats in the song starting just as I finish typing the previous line, I am loving every minute of the bus ride! 🙂 I got into the bus feeling a bit tired but now I feel as though my energy level has shot up ten times! 🙂
As though in sync with my mood, the next song is Akkadanu naanga! Wow! The next one – Andha Arabic! Is there anything better than Rahman himself lending his voice to his own music? 😉 Dil Se Re! Oh my God! It feels as though Rahman himself wanted to cheer me up and stop feeling tired! 😀 It hasn’t stopped yet. Doubling up my happiness is the song Sevvanam now! 🙂
Just as my stop was nearing, Thee Thee started and I had to stop the song midway and get down from the bus. 🙁 But, how can I even imagine sleeping without listening to Thee Thee after listening to it halfway? 😉 After listening to Thee Thee, Aayo Re Sakhi and Vasishnava Janato, I am now listening to veLLai pookaL. 🙂 Who’s in a mood to sleep now when all one wants to do is listen to Rahman’s songs again and again and again 🙂
