Musical Impressions of the season – Jan 2015
I doubt whether it is anything unique – most of us keep experiencing this – a song getting suddenly stuck into ourselves and never leaving us for some time. While i frequently flip around Carnatic music and contemporary regional Tamil movie songs, it is quite some time that i experienced this…. Suddenly, i have three songs stuck in me…
It all started with “Bho Shambo” – Dayanad Saraswathi’s impressive creation rendered by Sudha – the moment i heard it, i knew i need to hear it again and again and again!…..this is to the extent that i woke up to this song and listened to it through the day and slept over this song …this song was nostalgic – reminded me of those spiritual moments one experience growing up in the mystic temple town of Shiva – Chidambaram! And to some extent, the obsession on Shiva and the mystic experiences of the south indian ancient temples stays in me… (is that why i liked Shiva Trilogy of Amish?)
When I thought, i am all done with my song of the month, at an unexpected time of the day, another song jumps into me (i think i asked for it!!!)- a regional contemporary song from the tamil movie Paiyya- it still rings inside me even when i write this post – this is again a very unique experience considering i have heard this song in the past and did not give it much of a thought than the nice visuals. Unlike the song of 80s, the current songs are more dominated by the background music than the lyrics and i sure did not listen into the lyrics before. But then, when a song is destined to be getting into you, it somehow gets you at whatever state you are in – it is like another life incident which you are destined to go through! ” Better late than never!!” – the scripts are from na.muthukumar – the way this song got stuck now with a focus on the script is extremely surprising and surreal…
And when i really was all done for this season, jumps the other powerful script of Vairamuthu – from the Tamil movie Ravanan – so very pragmatic and honest !
While i really have to wait on whether I will get over these songs sooner, I am not complaining at all!! I am also 50% through in learning the songs and scripts!!
OBSESSED AND LIKING IT !! 🙂 🙂
