Top Ten at 23:30 PM!

Filed under: Music,Personal — Cris @ 18:12

Been a while… Actually it’s only been 3 days. But when you start blogging 3 times a day, 3 days is a huge gap! So just now I was having a walk and I was listening to this song in my mp3 player. And I have decided to add this to my top ten. For a while anyway! And oh, funnily, the song is “In a little while” by Uncle Kracker. Funny name for a singer! But if … (I was about to crack a really dumb joke and stopped myself just in time). New rule – if you see 3 dots in the middle of an incompleted line that means my hands are forcefully stopped by my brain and of course against a strong brain as mine, my hands are no match. 

Coming back to Uncle Kracker (oh seems his real name was Matthew Shafer) , it’s a really nice song. And I would advice people who haven’t heard it yet to hear it. Could help in a really somber mood when you have no shoulders to weep on! Leave it to me to overdo things! It’s not a sad song, but well its a soother (oh man now I have to check the dictionary if there’s a word like that. Whew it exists – “n.1.One who, or that which, soothes.”)

Talking about my top ten, let me see, my current list (it keeps changing every second so by the time I have posted this I will probably change my mind). Being an amazingly well-versed Indian (no proofs/demonstration would be given for this) it comes in 4 languages – Malayalam (Mallu), English, Tamil, Hindi.

1. (Tamil) Paadariyein – Sindhu Bhairavi

2. (Tamil) Kandukondein – Kandukondein Kandukondein

3. (English) Imagine – John Lennon

4. (Mallu) Aathmavil – Aaranyakam

5. (Tamil) Santhipoma – Unaku 20 Enaku 18

6. (English) In a little while – Uncle Kracker

7. (Hindi) Sogaya – Tezaab

8. (English) And I love her – Beatles

9. (English) Hippo and the Dog – (yes it happens to be a nice song!! But you gotta keep your eyes closed if you want to listen and not laugh!)

10. (English) Singing in the Rain – Frank Sinatra

Seems to be a Tamil season. Only 1 Hindi song – no offense to Hindi lovers, I know Hindi as much as Einstein did. Well maybe a teeny wee bit more (I hope he didnt take a secret 1 day course and knew the language inside out!). Oh wait I only have one song in Malayalam too. And I am a Mallu. So you see there’s no description – did I say description? I meant descrimination (Why the hell am I not using backspace!). Ahh I feel the urge to create a beautiful line – Music has no language. Someone had said it before? No way! Sure?

Well that’s it. Well now that I am here anyway, I thought I will talk about something more. The other day I  had … aww the 3 dots again?! Dang my brain is too fast! I gotta stop stopping myself like this!


  1. Music has no language?

    I’ve always thought music was A language. Just like math is. Oh well… 🙂

  3. 5 of them I have listened and 3 of them I love..(only 2 dots nothing stopped there.. My heart is stronger than my Brain, don’t know about the hands) The rest, will have to download and see how it is.

    Songs always reminds me of a heartbreak, I had in teenage.

    I remember someone saying “I am a music person, no lyrics for me.”
