Ever since I graduated from my Nokia 1100 to smart and smarter phones, one thing that took more effort and time than anything else was uploading music on my phone. It was and is a lot of fun to select and unselect songs depending upon my mood.
Although every few days I take time out to change my whole playlist, current songs mostly don’t find a place in it. I am more of the nostalgic type, and love to live a song through some memory.
More often than not my expression changes with every song, and I go through the whole journey, from sad to happy to peppy, all in the matter of a few minutes.
Indeed, there are favourites. There is always a song(s) that renders you incomplete without atleast one good feel of it. Out of the many very dear songs I have, I can choose one such favourite, quite easily.
Aate Jaate from Maine Pyar Kiya has been on every phone and every playlist I have ever had. Yes, I don’t listen to it all the time, but the feeling that it is right there in front of me gives me an assurance that life isn’t very bad.
An adolescent me grew up on the love and mush that it brought to life. The beautiful lyrics, music and the voices of Lata Mangeshkar and S P Balasubramaniam, and ofcourse a Salman Khan movie, just about everything is perfect with it!
Do you have any such favourite? Please share with me.
