Musically Yours : The 2 Songs

How quickly time flies. It's already time for my 9th post in this series; and to think I just started it a few days ago! But like someone said to me yesterday, it's human tendency to get attached to something you happen to be associated with for some time, no matter how short. And it's difficult to let go.


But coming back to the focal point of this post, which is something I hold closest to my heart - music - I'll let you in on the two songs that come to haunt me (in a good way though) at all times when my mind is idle. Although I shortlisted at least 5-6 songs for this post, I still had to choose, and these were the two which bagged the honor:


1. When you say nothing at all - Ronan Keating
I had heard the Alison Krauss version of the same song, and liked it a lot. And then there came Notting Hill, bringing with it the Ronan Keating version, that floored me completely. It's a very soft, subtle, beautiful number with a charm that touches your heart (mine, at least).
Watch the video here (ignore the little diversions in between, they're annoying but donno how and why, they're a part of the official video). And if you haven't listened to it already (seriously??), download it from here.

2. The Unforgiven II - Metallica
This is one song that never fails to amaze me. Metallica as the heavy metal pioneers don't need an introduction, and unlike what is usually expected of a girl, I LOVE them. They have this raw appeal and charisma, and I anyhow like rock and metal music a lot. Watch the video here, it's kinda weird and spooky (and awesome :D). Or download it from here. Let me know if it appeals to you! Or not.

In related news, I'm super charged right now, in earnest anticipation of the Metallica concert in Gurgaon next month. Yes, they're coming to India, and to my city, that too! Now if God's listening (oops, I mean reading), I'd like him to know that I'm hoping for someone to come up to me one of these days while I'm walking down the street, and offer me free tickets to the concert. Make it happen please, I really wanna go! *AMEN*

Now for my choice of songs. Two completely different genres, ain't they? That's because there isn't any single genre of music that I like more. I listen to them all, depending upon what my mood be at a particular moment. I eat music, even sleep music. That reminds me, did I ever mention that I'm a trained Hindustani Classical singer? Or that I like to sing more in the western genre? I think not. Anyway you know now. :)

Share your thoughts, or should I say, spread the music!

That shows how much you knew me and my choice. You know now, don't you?

Keshav Huria said...

I never had any idea about ur interest in western music..as u never discussed...itna influence hoga was unexpected !

CB said...

hee hee hee... ;D

Love the first one, haven't heard the other yet. :)

Keshav,
I know you hate kaan-faad western music, especially heavy metal. So we never got to discuss it. Do you remember the time you doubted whether I'd even know the band which has sung Californication, and then you found out I knew it well? You should've got the idea then and there. :P

Dear dear CB,
I love that sadistic hee hee hee of yours...I know you're enjoying it as much as it frustrates me :P
Take the other song from me tomorrow and listen. It's awesome!

CB said...

I love you too ;D :P

Mahima said...

Firstly, my absence from the comment section of your blog is out of sheer laziness. I ALWAYS follow your blog, and you know I love them, the same way I love you :D

Secondly, Some people should understand that comment section is not a place to DRAG a conversation.

And lastly, nice songs, both of them. I love the Alison Krauss version more though. :)
I'm not into metal, and I know that even you are not, but I clearly understand your reason to like it. :)

Keep posting baby! :)

Hugs,
-Rose

Rose,

Although my blog indeed misses your expert comments, but your presence in my life and your off-the-record comments and suggestions make it up for that, always. I love you! :)

And well, our choice in music, just like in everything else, is similar in some ways and different in others. That's what makes us click!

Thank you so much, for finally making an appearance to make this comment section complete, and shine. ;)
