Third time – a charm?

Warning: Really long post!!!! yet feel it is so incomplete (ok…I am nuts!) I am amazed at people who could just pick and list just a few… read on with your ears wide open πŸ˜‰ speakers on πŸ˜€

Vishesh has been tagging me. The first one – I told him that I don’t have the imagination to do that one! The second – well, I had already done it….

So, perseverance pays…he tagged me for the third time here. This tag was started by Destination Infinity.

The Aim: Let the readers know your favourite songs in your regional language/ Hindi / English

There are way too many songs on that particular list of favourite songs!!! (This can end up to be one really long post!!! πŸ™‚ ) I do put in a lot of effort to do any tag right; but I think this one should take the cake. Being someone who loves to listen to any music except heavy metal – it was one helluva job to shortlist songs. I remember how my mum used to be irritated and used to ask me if the house was some “tea kadai” (tea shop – generally playing music all the time!)

I have written a few posts that carry some of the songs that I like hearing. Links given below…

Boney M, ABBA, MASH title song
Find Yourself by Brad Paisley
Song from Minsara Kanavu

  • My mother tongue is telugu. Though I have not really seen many movies in the language, one song that strikes my memory is Mounamelanoyi from Sagara Sangamam
  • From telugu movie Rudraveena, the song below
  • The same movie came as Unnal Mudiyum Thambi in tamil – the song in tamil
  • Another song in the same movie which has a humourous take with various Carnatic ragas at play on cooking
  • One Malayalam song that I love is from the movie His Highness Abdullah – Pramada Vanam

I have grown to like many of the English songs – will like them mostly for the lyrics or the music appeals to me. Some of the songs actually have grown on me after repeated listening ( I must say I miss listening to Enlgish songs here in Chennai as many radio channels don’t feature English music 😦 )

After listing scores of English songs, I have to list these classical Indian songs too… Very few compared to the scores I listen to… Worth the time to hear these. I must say here that some of the songs I learnt to dance to way back when I indulged in Bharatanatyam. I do love the Kurai onrum illai, bhaja Govindam Β too listed by Vishesh πŸ™‚

I think I better stop here. If I start listing hindi songs that I listen to; there would be no end to this post which is by far the longest I have written! Don’t regret it as it has become a one stop place for me to come to and click on the inks to listen to those I like to hear! πŸ˜‰ Many missing – yet…these can me occupied for hours πŸ˜€

Vishesh – I hope I have done justice for all the tags that I have avoided .

Do I need to pass on the tag? I hereby challenge you to list the songs you like and limit them to a certain number (which I have failed and yet feel like I have not listed all…ok I better not bore everyone! πŸ˜‰ )
