Something!!

I am not sure what has gotten into me! Well, you must be wondering what I am talking about. I don’t understand this something that is happening to me. The other day I was listening to ‘Ennai pooppol koithuvittal...’ from ‘Minnalae’ and though I have listened to it before, this something happened to me and I deleted all other songs on my play list and kept listening to this song alone for about four hours. Remember the song is just 1 min and 56 seconds!!.

The same happened to ‘Don’t speak’ by ‘No doubt’. Then I did it to ‘thathi thathi thavudhae nenjam...’ from ‘Kaadhal kondaen’. And now it is ‘Lovefool’ by ‘The cardigans’.

You can check out the lyrics of the song here.

Well, coming to think about it. It is a very ordinary song and there is nothing great about it. I am not sure on how well this song fared on the charts. But, there is something about this song that made me listen to it again and again. Actually, after some thought I came to a conclusion that this has tones similar to that of ‘Don’t Speak’. I mean the type of music, the fact that a lady has sung this song, the overtones relate to that of ‘Don’t speak’. Is it that the last one that makes me listen to it again and again? I don’t know.

Yeah it is quite obvious that it has something to do with the mood that I am in. But then why did this thing of listening to a song again and again happen and why only to a few particular songs alone? Whatever it is, am enjoying it with a tinge of sadness.

Ohh oh!!! Now do I sound very sad? Well, no. I am not. But then, I won’t call I am happy either.

Talking about the ‘Lovefool’ I like the way the vocalist Nina Persson has sung the song; the casual delivery of the emotions, the way she emphasizes the word ‘Pretend’ in ‘pretend that you love me...’ is just too good. Even the place where she sings/says, ‘Love me, love me...’ is good.

Hi Renu,
This sortta hearing to the same song happens many a times I guess...But beware, if u r listening to the same song more often(ie the same song all time, then U might be insanely addicted to the song.) But there are some songs that are worth it...like "Theendai..Mei Theendai" from "En Suvasa Kaatrae" and "Aaasaya Kaathulla Thoothu Vittu" from "Jaany"...these are the first two songs in any of my playlists and they jus pep me up..whatever mood I am in...

The song from Minnalae ' Ennai Poopol Koidhu vittai' is a wonderful song.

I remember I did the same when the movie came out.

These days I repeat this song from the film 'Viswa Thulasi'
Its sung by Karthik I think and goes like this ' Enn Uyirae..Enn Uyirae..' Please listen...

Hi Renu!!
Howdy?:)
LoveFool is a nice song..Its from the movie Romeo and Juliet I guess..Its got this longing in it..
I keep listening to the same song again and again thru out the day..Like the other day it was "Sundari,kannal oru.." from dhalapathi..The song made me totally blue and left me feeling very lonely somehow

reNUka said...
