Fall For A Magician.

Fall for a magician. Fall in love with a magician, a magician whose words weave mystical lands in thin air, who draws blind faith of a fading summer, whose voice makes the insides warm and squishy and it is as if everything is just right.

Fall for someone who cannot admire you enough despite the imperfections that you make evident, complaining; someone who lends to these imperfections a rhythm, a symphony, a song, a tune while stringing their guitar in the morning, while you indulge in some breakfast in bed that they prepared for you, in a voice so beautiful that it makes you giggle and blush.

Fall for someone who isn’t afraid to tell you how they fell for you; someone who chooses the right words and isn’t hesitant to tell you when it happened, almost like two worlds colliding, two universes colliding and being one for eternity; someone who can write a book about how they love the way you brush your hair, or the small mole on your back, or the color of your eye, or the glint n your hair when sunlight falls on it.

Fall for someone who paints you while you sit engrossed in your book, someone who converges the two you’s: the one of their dreams and the one that is you, in yellows and reds and in colors unseen and shades unnoticed, small details that give incredible depth and beauty and charm and poise to that simple crayon painting, making it so beautiful to look at, that it hurts.

Fall for someone who makes you their muse. That way, it doesn’t matter if you live or you die, if you laugh or cry, if it works or if it doesn’t, because it will always be there when you’re sad or lonely or depressed and you feel unloved and ugly, and maybe for just some time, your song, your poem, your picture will make you happy, and maybe, just maybe, make everything better for a while.

So fall in love with a magician, and it might just the be the best thing you would have ever done.

By now, it is not an uncommon knowledge that I am completely and irrevocably in love with One Tree Hill. So when their makers decided to put this appropriate song for the emotional ending of season 4, I was on cloud nine. And why not? The music is so lovely and soothing that it makes everything just right! You’ll be at peace.

Saathi Haath Badana: Naya Daur

Releasing Year: 1957

This song unexpectedly sprang to my mind while I was in school today, at a free period. And since then, from early morning, till then dispersal, I kept singing this sound in an extremely nasal and an irritating voice, much to my friends’ dismay. The message is brilliant, how we should work together and how we should have team spirit, and that it is actually in our class 7/8 textbook but I found the found it itself really dismal and gloomy. Imagine the torture I inflicted on my friends with this song the entire day! 😛

First of, I don’t understand the entire song. To my limited understanding of Punjabi, I understand like 1/4th of the entire song. But the song is catchy. The pronunciations of the words (couldn’t say lyrics as I don’t understand them) i.e the dialect is marvellous. The music is soothing and everything in the song just fits. And the video and Pulkit Samrat and Ali Fazal are just cute.

There is something about this song that makes me want to stand up and just sway. or participate in a revolution, Mockingjay style. But all I do is just sit or lay down and listen. That is enough too. The song is beautiful, the lyrics romantic and Jessie J’s powerful voice on such sweet melody is like the dash of salt you get after eating something real sweet.

Tu Aashiqui Hai: Jhankar Beats

Releasing year: 2003

This song came across a offbeat at the tie of its release due to unconventional music direction. Today, this song is widely appreciated. From the upbeat music beats, the lyrics, the liberal use of the perfect guitar, the placement of the song in the movie is just perfect. Just like the movie itself. A good song on a good day!

This Italian song had me on tenterhooks for about a month. Caterina, my Italian friend, had introduced this song to me and it was love at first… tune. There is something so amazing about listening to a song whose lyrics/meaning you can’t comprehend. It’s almost as if a part of that place comes to you for a while. The peppy music, the un-understandability of lyrics is very awesome!
