Get Daftingly Lucky !

Guys I have this sneaky feeling that i am one of the last ones to discover this song, but hey I find this song by Daft Punk so super groovy!

“Up all night to get LUCKY!”  Ok hold your neighing horses of imagination there & enjoy the peppiness of the song will you.. Oh please we all know what we all thought so lets just dismiss pretensions here so we may snap fingers & enjoy the super funky music!

How i chanced upon it ? Crazy thing, so i have neighbors who live on the floor above us & are quite loud , annoying,self loathing,world hating but play this song frequently so I half forgive them for all the disturbance, cause them people know their groovy music . (so you know yay! for them too)

Am also loving Soundcloud!! That amazing conglomeration of brilliant people who just make awesme songs better by remixing them!

PS :Yes i am aware i use the word “groovy” from old Archies comics time. But you know what? they haven’t quite come up with an adjective to replace GROOVY!! So Lets stay up all night to ermmm  dance to this song thats so grooovy! (See what i did there ?phew!) Hope you like it as much .Enjoy!!

I got sand in my shoes..

So am going to Goa to enjoy Sun,sand & the sound of waves! Super excited!Yay! Am supposed to be packing but am surfing stuff predictably like the net junkie that i am .

dido_20090214_2177I came across this song of Dido’s that i used to hear in school. You can always sing her song with or without instruments. Her voice always conjures up imaginings of a campfire with family & friends , someone on the guitar &  one other singing.Her songs have that earthy, intimate feeling. She seems so real, relatable & easy to love kinda person.

Yeah so am going away for a while & yeah Ill have to return & its so weird that I know this is exactly how i’ll feel when i return. I just like this song cause i know when i get back I’ll be all like – I still got sand in my shoes….” Its like taking a snapshot of the future & seeing it but its Dido so its all good !

Here the Song & below are the lyrics that are just soo spot on!


Two weeks away feels like the whole world should have changed,
But I’m home now, and things still look the same.
I think I’ll leave it ’til tomorrow to unpack,
Try to forget for one night that I’m back in my flat.
On the road where the cars never stop going through the night,
To a life where I can’t watch the sun set.
I don’t have time.
I don’t have time.
……..
Tomorrow’s back to work and down to sanity,
Should run a bath and then clear up the mess i made before i left here.
Try to remind myself that i was happy here,
Before I knew that I could get on a plane and fly away,
From the road where the cars never stop going through the night,
To a life where I can watch the sun set,
And take my time.
Take all my time.

I’ve still got sand in my shoes….

(This before even leaving!! Sighhh… )

LADY

At the risk of being lame & being the millionth person saying some inane thingummy like  “work runneth over me & keepeth me there with face on dirt ” yeah you get the idea…yeah it kept me there & yeah it kinda led to the appalling normalisation of my head making me narrow mindedly fixed on the everyday & the mundane… I need more daydreaming time . I woefully accept to myself that my blogging has become extremely erratic I just got off a 4 day vacation . Its Diwali here in India !! hence i find the will to type.. neway why i did get to type & share..

Tired or not I always manage to discover or rediscover songs that uplift my day .

Tonight’s choice is rose tinted, laidback , salt of the earth, country music . Again one from days of yore (Parents’ time i mean :P), i discovered this gem… I hum it every now  then. Its got a very magical tune & the sincerest lyrics ever written. A beautiful composition fit for a lady. The song is – LADY by Kenny Rogers.

Here is what Wiki tells me about it : The song was written and produced by Lionel Richie, recorded in 1980, and ranks among Kenny Rogers’s biggest hits. Rogers once told an interviewer, “The idea was that Lionel would come from R&B and I’d come from country, and we’d meet somewhere in pop.”

I heard the song & i went all like  “& dats how u woo a lady………. old school knew the finer rules..unforgettable song this! “Sigh… girls just sigh… & weep for an era gone by while the lads learn to figure out how to sway to Dubstep. Dont get me wrong i like dubstep too! It just stands no chance against an old school like this when you go about the fine art of wooing .. no? Ok back to sighing.. (Disclaimer : All this sighing does not make me a pansy, don’t get my nailpaint wet small girlie. Its called allowing myself my whims 🙂 ) Ok now that that’s clear we can enjoy the song again…si..g..h…….

Baby – I GOT THE FEELING!!

So after a long day (and part night) at the office i like to unwind like countless people of my generation by plonking myself in front of my laptop, to surf the net. Sometimes i youtube series . Nowdays I am watching “The Cosby Show” a really old family show. Its adorable with oodles of really good natured humour & family gooey cuteness with a fabulous amount of awww factor!!

I came across this episode where the  cosby kids put up this little dance number on the song – “I got the feeling” by James Brown. Check it out. Its damn creative,funny, clever & oooh the song has soo much life!!

It was really awesomely the best heartwarming thing that made me want to dance !It was 12 in the night , i had promised myself to sleep after the episode but oooh the song got me snapping my fingers & loving the beats. They needed no autotuning in the 60s! Them oldies knew how to roll people!

You have to hear it, feel it & man it makes you wanna snap your fingers! The style is so different from anything i have been hearing for a while now ..and the change is so refreshing, its damn neat!  I wikied it & found out this –

“”I Got the Feelin’” is a funk song by James Brown. Released as a single in 1968, it reached #1 on the R&B chart and #6 on the pop chart. It also appeared on a 1968 album of the same name”

Check out the song below …You should check out The Cosbys’ performance too (above). I love them both! this one is going in the archives!

Let her go…

Heard this song on Karaoke night at a local watering hole called loveshack last wednesday.

I fell in love with the guitaring and the simple lyrics. No verbal or musical calisthenics in this song. A very simple tune , a simple expression reminding you of simple times.

I kinda got a country feeling from this song though am not sure the singer was going for that genre. Small matter , more importantly its nice.Little bit of old charm in it. I thought it was an old song , was very surprised to note that it was released sometime in 2012.

I do confess though I wish it was sung by a guy with a deep rich baritone.Someone should do that rendition.
Do you like it? Try it when you are relaxed. Seriously not after a dubstep number & not when you want to dance ..so Not suitable for that mood.

These lines from the song-

“Staring at the bottom of your glass..
Hoping one day you’ll make a dream last
but dreams come slow & they go so fast…”

That part of the song is blessed – with the perfect blend of imagery, depth of feeling & a beautiful melody..
Hope you enjoy it as much as i am doing

Will you still love me ?

Song 1 for today! .. Damn good music & voice overcome the confused,shallow principle behind the lyrics in this one.

That was my first impression of the song but then i got to thinking. You know what? This actually Sounds like a real woman. Not a “keep me & my thoughts on a pedestal” kind but one with the “cute crazies”. Yes guys, we women like to believe there is such a thing as the “cute crazies”!
She is one of us – this gal.

This woman with all her faults,desires & all the love in her heart is just… so many real women!
First things first for the lady- She wants to know that she will be loved when her shine is dimmed.That is so her number one concern! She asks this every now & then and in intervals affirms that she believes that he will! This vacillation between doubt & certainity exists till the very end .
She cares for her guy so fully , impractically & with childlike innocence.. she even contemplates negotiating with the saints to reserve a little piece of heaven for him. (& oh yeah, she is damn confident she is getting a ticket to heaven, its just him! He needs her help getting in 😉 I like this dame! She is like aye! You know its cause of me you get to enter all the clubs, what makes you think Paradise is gonna be any different?)

She thinks of him & sings first of his “grace” .. & that single simple word encompasses sterling qualities of a real man better than some other lengthier adjectives. Then she talks about his face (maybe cause it rhymes with grace?) & how he makes her want to party all night long.. an expression that sounds vapid but may just be an inadequate description of the happiness he evokes. The lightness of feet that the knowledge of being loved and being in love brings.

Come to think , this might be a song with depth hidden in clear sight.. or then maybe not.But her compelling voice makes me believe , it cant be just about the dude’s face!

So what made me think up all this stuff on a Sunday afternoon? Lets just say .. I’m a very practical girl with a deep abiding love for impossibly high heeled shoes!!
Make what you will of it 😉 Enjoy the song!

A car ride, a birthday & an old song

Yesterday was my Bday & this time I got to spend it with my family after many years . It was relaxing, nice, fuzzy fun. In the evening the whole family went out for dinner & I received an unexpected gift –

I sat in my parents’ car after a real looong time & they played their CDs with those super awesome songs I heard all the time while growing up ..yeah that happened . I relished the ride to the restaurant & specially this particular song whose tune really got to me!! It was like a pleasing reunion of sorts.

So an hour after my Bday was over & I had aged ever so gracelessly, I hunted the song down in youtube (I LOVE THE INTERNET !) & played it non stop . I realized I totally did not understand this song when I was young cause I thought the singer was singing “One way ticket to the moon

 (NOTE:  I thought  earlier Savage Garden got their idea from this song btw & I adore “To the moon & back” too … my generation AMAZING kinda song…. hmmm something about the analogy behind going to the moon is intriguing I reckon…)

I thought Dude that’s rad!! Yes the rest of the lyrics did not make sense, but who cared?  I was young & those were my favourite lines.

Sitting in the backseat of my Dad’s car, I think I really listened to this song for the first time & people, I kid you not, hear it out.. It’s a really well written & executed song . It’s quite something. This lady is lonely but armed with oodles of creativity. She has a strong beautiful voice & the song’s simple lyrics have a childlike charm. This lady has SNAP! Never has being lonely sounded soo good.

Check out these lyrics :

“I gotta take a trip to lonesome town
Gonna stay at heartbreak hotel
A fool such as i ,a fool such as i
There never was-  i cry my tears away.”

Oh yeah after all this time I get the song’s name “One way ticket to the blues” 😉 It took me some growing up to understand it.  I think that means something, but don’t feel like mulling over that.. I gotto go rummage through my parents’ collection now .

Note: For those who are wary of “The Blues” I wasn’t feeling blue, it did not make me feel blue. You can enjoy the song without being in a surly mood I assure you 😉
