The Music Tag !

The reason for not writing this post so long…………………First time in the ten years of using computers, last Monday the hard disk of my three years old dear laptop crashed down. Apart from my valuable data of accounts, mails, contacts, documents, files, precious photographs and my effortful collections of around 10GB music data was vanished without any traces of smoke. And there was not at all back up by yours truly. So you can imagine, even the idea of music was sending shivering waves inside me.

The reason of writing this post now………………. One of not at all old friend Rajinder voluntarily offered a helping hand to make try retrieving data from the damaged disk and kept trying for so many days, keeping me dangling in between hope and disappointment. On the other hand, the entirely empty and formatted new hard disk in my laptop was giving feelings like mocking me until yesterday when Rajinder called and informed me cheerfully that he has not only retrieved the whole data but made the disk working like new again. So now when I have found my precious belongings back and a sharp lesson to keep back up of valuable data, after creating a back up, writing this post was my immediate second action.

Juneli rightly wrote while tagging me that I love ‘senti’ songs. Simply cause I am senti person. I love music, good music I mean. My philosophy of music is that the sound should reach your heart and not feet. Though different moods would differentiate my favorite list but in general I like classical, Sufi, slow and easy listening. Surly I love to sing loudly some fast numbers too when in juvenile mood.

Being Gemini, a sign of versatility, I wanted to have mastery in endless fields, (but always end up with the apt proverb ‘jack of all, master of none’) music is one of them. My liking or disliking of songs came from mind and heart mostly. It could be good wording, good music by any known or unknown singing artist. That’s why sometimes I love to mumble even TV commercials, no matter even if they are single lined. The one these days I like very much is ad of Reliance mobile phone’s "Baatton baatton main rang aa gaye hain, jab se baatton main rang chaa gaye hain." There are many other ads I love to sing along since my childhood.

Here I wanna frankly accept that mostly I can’t keep exact and accurate track of songs by their lyrists or composers but by their singers. I adore classical or Sufi singers and always try to sing along those songs. As I wrote in my profile, it is very very difficult for my to list down a few numbers or singers I like most or I could classify. The list keeps on shuffling and adding. But still I am trying my best to complete this post.

Your favorite lyricist and lyrics you remember the most.

Again a difficult question, there are endless those people who have written marvelous poems. To name a few:

Sahir Ludhianvi
Majrooh Sultanpuri
Kamal Amrohi
Kafi Azami
Shakeel Badayuni
And many many more

Your favorite song on friendship

Chandan Sa Badan........Mukesh from Saraswati Chandra

A song for the person who tagged you… Juneli

Aao Twist Karen Ga Utha Mausam.......By Manna Dey in Bhoot Bangla

The story of your old hard disk seems like a real romance. Ant bhala to sab bhala. And what about songs? They can be heard even after 100 years from now onwards.

First of all,I'm happy that you have been able to recover all your data and specially the songs. Not only that the HD is working as New!!! I think I also should send my HD to your friend that crashed two years back and many of my files there :(.

And really loved to read your post and the songs. All of them are my fav songs too. And you really have a unique list :).

And the songs for me.... LOL :)). Twist!!!! I don't know to do "Twist" but I know to twist the words :P ;) ha ha ha

And yes, the list of the song you made, seems it's not enough.

Thanks a lot for accepting the tag.

Praney said...

There is no harm giving a try Juneli, you should send me your HD, it may work.

Thanks for liking the post. And don't worry even I don't know how to do twist dance but I do can throw legs n arms in the air :)

Nice song list. Most of them are my favourite too, especially the one from Mili.

Even I had lost my Mails of past 7 years though not by hard disk crash but by the mistake of system admin guy here.

The golden rule to retrieve the data - do not reboot your machine!

Thanks Manish, we have common choices we know.
