My Top 5!

Music is a great pick-me-up! Was kept at home all day by an upset tummy
and incessant rains. So spent a few happy hours playing DJ to Mamma and are my favourites..and why..

Tum se hi (Jab we met):
Coz its not the usual insipid song about someone pining away for his "jaan" and coining them "bewafa"! Its not even complaining of "judai"..there is angst here...there is wishful thinking..but also acceptance that maybe some things arent meant to be..and realising
what you take away with you having been in love is probably worth it..
Coz distance is bittersweet....
Ajab si (OSO):
Coz I may be hard at work or stuck and swearing in traffic..but this song comes on and it's as if I walked into cool breeze. Very refreshing.
Whiteflag (Dido):
Great voice. And somebody incurably in love. Reason enough to like a song, right? :)
Like the deserts miss the rain(from Everything but the girl-Todd Terry):Again, great voice. Great tempo..Love the slow pickup.. almost inaudible plucking rising to frenzied strumming..It's a song which is very easy to visualize..that's the appeal I guess. Did I say great voice?
Hello (Lionel Richie):My all-time favourite! No reasons needed to say's superlative. And if you have watched the video, it's something which stays with you a long time.

Alright..all of the above are love songs...What I have to say in my defense is this: It has been raining!! What else could I play? :)
