How does that Song go?

I'm sure this has happened to every single one of you.
Listen to a song, and you get transported to a particular time, to a certain place, a memory that seems not so distant..

Here's a few songs that instantly take me down memory lane =)


Michael Buble - Home
In Melbourne, in the car with Arpu, Sheetal, Junior, Ravi and Dev ..driving back to Arpu's apartment after a long drunken night. I wanted to stay there so much, that it hurt. I guess they felt like home. Bliss tinged with the sad realisation that it won't last forever. But bliss nonethless!

Switchfoot - Dare You to Move
Me wondering what X was going to do now that he knew. Back off or come back for more?

Matt Pond - Champagne Supernova
Rishi and I singing this at the top of our lungs, with the rest of the gang sitting at the back and groaning, having given up telling us to 'SHUT IT!!'. But we were feeling the song man!

Maroon 5 - She Will be Loved
I get sad everytime I listen to this song. Coz I think "Really?Will she?" And coz I know, chances are pretty low that a guy will ever spend everyday, out on my corner, in the pouring rain..unless he's a stalker....which suddenly makes the song sound worrying. haha!
But seriously...'The girl with the Broken Smile'..how heartbreaking is that?

Jewel - Break Me
Daniel and I in the art room, him telling me to sing this song.
"Mahi, if I were straight, I'd have gone for you in a heartbeat."

James Blunt - You're Beautiful
Mom yells at me for singing this song 24/7. And the next morning I hear her singing it while cooking.

Incubus - I Miss You/Echo
Remembering a certain someone who got me hooked onto Incubus (and him). Remembering him telling me "We love each other. Like how one child loves another." Knowing that sometimes it'll be like it was, but mostly it won't.

Hans Zimmerman - Nyah
While watching MI 2, I remember thinking that this was the sexiest piece of music, ever.
I still think it is.

Def Tones - Change
I heard this while watching 'The Queen of the Damned'. I remember thinking to myself 'They bastardized the novel, but damn do they have good taste in music!' Maybe it had something to do with the image of a vampirised Stuart Townsend, in a tub filled with rose petals on water.
Maybe. *Takes a moment to compose herself*

Britney Spears - Baby, One More Time
The image of my art teacher prancing, in his extra tight pants and shaking his booty to this song, will forever be seared into my brain. Such things should not be witnessed by impressionable and relatively clean minds.

Chicane - No Ordinary Morning
My art teacher (the same one) telling me that this was one of his favourite songs. For the duration of one beautiful song, we had a silent truce and something passed between us. We both came to a quiet realisation that as much as we hated each others guts, we'd miss one other when I would have to leave. I created one of our favourite pieces whilst listening to this song.
Maybe I'll post it up soon.



Oh gosh..there are LOADS more..but they're private.


You know how that song goes.. ;)

yeah..ever been through life, and there are certain moments, when you feel a particular song running through your head, like soundtrack to the cinema that is your life ? and the songs mingle with the thoughts in your brain, add to the mood, and contribute to your decisions ?
or am i just crazy, with voices in my head ?

I've not read Queen of the Damned, but I'm sure NO book could've been that bad. God it was bloody awful.

jay - you're right, the novel wasnt awful..in fact the novel had NOTHING to do with what u saw in the movie (except for the character names, and the fact that it was about vampires).

and what about "sitting waiting and wishing" and what about "more than words??"

i know the exact feeling mahi and i totally agree. i am a sucker for a good song, it has the power to move me in the right (and wrong) directions!

that's the amazing part about music. it is a quisessential trigger that allows us to be transported to a certain memory based on our hearing sense.
