My favorite lyrics lines

In this post I'm just listing couple of lyrics' lines while I like the best along with a brief description as to why I like them.

1.Time is the healer, time moves on… Time doesn’t wait for anybody…-From Krishna nee BEgane baaro, Colonial Cousins [Full details here]

I like this line simply because this is the simplest, unquestionable truth on this universe.

2. He was a boy, she was a girl, Can I make it any more obvious?-Skater Boy-Avril Lavigne-[full lyrics]

Hindi movies dedicate one third of their time to convey that hero and heroine are in love, while this line makes things obvious at the very beginning, in simple straight forward style, saving all the drama. Saves lot of time and effort you see…

3. Ain’t no use complainin', when you got a job to do…-Summer of ’69, Bryan Adams.[Full Lyrics]

If you have a job and a regular source of income, you’re luckier than billions of people on this planet. Complaining too much about the job at hand is not good…I’m not saying compromise, but what I’m saying is back office gossiping will take you no where…

4.Acting like you're somebody else gets me frustrated -Arvil Lavigne again…Complicated…[Full lyrics]

Many people blindly follow others or act without thinking. I’ve seen many enrolling for cheapest available SAP courses, just because they heard someone saying "SAP has got lot of demand", Girlfriend says she likes Dhoni's hairstyle and the boy tortures his barber next day for Dhoni hairstyle...We should try to build our own identity instead of faking others. That's my opinion.

5. AAankhon mein sapne liye
Ghar se hum chal to diye
Jaane yeh raahein ab le jaayengi kahan
(Shaan, Tanha Dil)
All youngsters who started their career with lots of ambition will certainly appreciate this song...

Above are some of my most favorite songs. I also like Adnan Sami's lift karade, besides several others, about which I'll write later...

Below is an interesting video...My friend NR Bhat showed it to is a song titled Mahiya sung at an IIT function. The lyrics is interesting to hear and is composed of Hindi and English. They call this singer Indian Shakira...

ನನಗೆ ಇಷ್ಟವಾಗುವ ಕನ್ನಡ ಹಾಡಿನ ಸಾಲುಗಳು ಬಹಳ ಇವೆ. ಅವುಗಳ ಬಗ್ಗೆ ಇನ್ನೊಮ್ಮೆ ಬರೆಯುತ್ತೇನೆ. ನಿಮ್ಮ ಅಚ್ಚುಮೆಚ್ಚಿನ ಕವಿತೆಯ ಸಾಲುಗಳು ಯಾವುದೆ೦ದು ಕಮೆ೦ಟಿಸಿ...

I invite you to drop a comment on one or two of your favorite song lines and tell us why. If your song is in language other than English/Hindi/Kannada, pls give translation.

Surya Kiran Jois said...

My favorite line is same as one of the lines listed by ಸುಸಂಕೃತ ... "ಇರುವುದೆಲ್ಲವ ಬಿಟ್ಟು ಇರದುದರೆಡೆಗೆ ತುಡಿವುದೆ ಜೀವನ"... Hats off to Gopalakrishna Adiga. ManoMurthy has composed excellent music for this song in the movie America! America!. Great lyrics! Great music! Great movie! This is my all time favorite.

Raveesh Kumar said...

I agree with Surya. Even my favourite line is "Iruvudellada Bittu Iradudaredege Thudivude Jeevana".

Thanks ಸುಸಂಕೃತ , Surya Kiran and Raveesh for sharing your thoughts. ನಾನು ಅಮೇರಿಕಾ ಅಮೇರಿಕಾ ಸಿನೆಮಾ ನೋಡಿದ್ದೇನಾದರು ಈ ಹಾಡನ್ನು ಅಷ್ಟು ಗಮನವಿಟ್ಟು ಆಲಿಸಿಲ್ಲ. ಇನ್ನೊಮ್ಮೆ ಅನುಕೂಲವಾದಾಗ ಸರಿಯಾಗಿ ಕೇಳುತ್ತೇನೆ.

ಸ೦ಗೀತಕ್ಕಿ೦ತ ಕವಿತೆ ಅರ್ಥಪೂರ್ಣವಾಗಿದ್ದರೆ ಅವು ಇಷ್ಟವಾಗುತ್ತವೆ ಅಲ್ಲವೇ?

Sandesh said...

I would like to one thing to this that the video that you have included of Mahiya song is not shot in some IIT it's actually of a pakistani singer Annie who has also recently sung in one of the hindi movies of Mahesh Bhatt

Thanks for that information...
