Looping in my player 'I'll Be Right there' - Bryan Adams, after ages. Had totally forgotten this song. There is something about BA, eventhough he doesnt have the greatest voices in history. It can almost be defined as hoarse. I was introduced to his music when I was in my 10th std by a neighbour. And the first song I had heard was Please forgive me or maybe it was Everything I do. And that was the day I fell in love with his music. I couldnt make it to his first couple of concerts and when I did go this year, it was a dream come true. Another wish, some day I should perform alongside him. That'll be THE day.
As this song is repeating in my player, feel like dancing a ballet. Soft lights. In an empty auditorium. Built in the way the Opera House is built, in Modena, Italy.. where I performed for Ilayaraja Sir's concert. A wispy costume maybe. Nothing but the song and me. I cant dance ballet for nuts. But I can visualize myself.... Right there.
Or maybe a starry night and a full moon, a stream gushing away nearby, the air smelling of dew in a grassy meadow. And a silver beam from the skies right in the middle of the meadow, to be enveloped in and be transported to the realms of the pure. And be purified. To feel like nothing. To be fluid. And to have a beatific smile and reach higher and higher .. the unknown. To know the unknown.
If there was a gift I wish I had, that would be to have the gift to heal.

Well, I thought you already have the gift to heal. You have "great voice". That will work wonders for many.

You are doing a good enough job of healing with your voice lady. Leave the rest to the doctors! :)

i am sure yash raj productions would be very interested in your description :p..like the song in dil to pagal hai..maya..err..this may jarr your visual a bit!! Whats the funda of the last line?

totti said...

Also, agree with the RDB funda. The big picture always reflects through the smallest pixel (or some better word). But, i think things are changing for better in India!

Hmmm... In a poetic mood now? :-) I think you never wrote about your thoughts as such before in your blog. This one was a nice read.

We hold some songs dear to our heart...

Hi Chinmayi... I hav' wondered who sung that beautiful song from kanathil muthamittal...

U shud listen to the songs of Pink Floys which are matured Roack than Bryan's. Its not that they are bad. Its that u shud taste the original. O rlisten to green day... Its gud.

ur fan, Karthi
