SONGS OF MY SOUL

Music, I believe is one thing that binds all of us...transcending all boundaries - physical, mental, social - ALL. I have never come across a person who hates music. In one form or the other, it appeals to each one of us and is extremely important to us, in its own special way.
It is my great escape from my day-to-day troubles. At times, it’s not just about unwinding these worries, but it also gives me a fresh and different way of thinking. At times it makes me weep, at times it makes me smile. Sometimes it brings peace to me, sometimes it sets off an emotional turbulence.

But then there are songs that not just touch my soul and evoke a strong emotional response, but also stir it completely. It’s like they are revealing my deepest and well kept secrets - desires, fears, thoughts. At times they heal my soul, at times they inspire me and there are times when they simply tear open a wound that I did not even remember I had.

So tell me what’s your story, which songs stir your soul? Does this song seem like its talking about you? Does it remind you of a friend, love found or love lost? Tell me cuz I would love to know! And I have a long list, will let you know in my next post

PS:- Keshi, this blogs dedicated to you since its idea originated from your comment on my last blog :-)

Music is one of the best things in this world.As it is said,"Music is what feelings sound like"

So hard to choose a few cause the list is endless.

Your post reminded me of the song "The Book Of Love" by Peter Gabriel.Its has beautiful lyrics in addition to its soulful melody.I dedicate it to this post.Hugs!

I have lots of it and to choose one is difficult 'coz each give me different feelings.
I love 'return to innocence' by Enigma, don't know the reason but just love it to hear all the songs of enigma after swiching off all the lights and to hear it in complete darkness and silence :)

I love certain songs of Avril Lavigne,MJ these just make me go crazy.

'Goodbye to you' by westlife just make me sad and list goes on and on

July 25, 2008 at 4:37 PM

OKAYYYYYY!!! You asked for it! :D

Trouble by Coldplay has to be the song with the most realistic lyrics! Followed by Fix you and The scientist by the same!
Blurry by Puddle of Mudd which reminds me of my ex! But in a good sort of way! ;)
Don't cha by PCD is the ultimate babe wallah song! :D
Making love out of nothing at all- Air Supply.. Don't even get me started on this one!
Holiday by Greenday because it always makes me want to dance!
I want candy by Aaron Carter! I don't even know why I like this song! But i do! Because it is a feel good song!! :D :D :D
Serenity by Godsmack because of Suttaji and his blog!
With or without you and where the streets have no name by U2, because it reminds me of my friends! :)

Bas, aaj ke liye itna hi!!

Hey you know..I have a friend here who grew up WITHOUT listening to music. It was simply not allowed at her place!! Can you imagine that? No radio, no tapes, no CD..they did not even own a music player!!

Anyway, here is a song that I play on repeat all the time.

If you leave me now..from CHICAGO!
