Write about the three most important songs in your life — what do they mean to you?
Today’s twist: You’ll commit to a writing practice. The frequency and the amount of time you choose to spend today — and moving forward — are up to you, but we recommend a minimum of fifteen uninterrupted minutes per day.
Well, that twist is not generic. I think only time can reveal if I can do it. Well, I have too many songs that I love and cherish and so that is why I have to pick three that I think matter at the moment.
First I will chose Inner Universe by Origa and Shanti Snyder — this song is kinda like my theme song because it is beautiful and poignant, and whenever I listen to it it reminds me of the will of my own spirit that dedication and emotional evolutions can solve things. The song to me is a synchronicity of many ups and down, tempos and all. I really love listening to it. It can be listened to at quiet periods of life but also really hard pressed times too.
Second, I will chose King’s Cross by Pet Shop Boys — the music is tantalizing haunting, but as usual this song has a great social commentary. When I listened to it I feel like a traveler of interconnected events and places. That is a great feeling to have.
Third, I will chose a Bangla classic, Amar Porano Jaha chai (what my heart/being wants) by Rabindranath Thakur or Tagore — it is a love song but also a partly unselfish love song about a person wanting the other but at the same time wanting that her or his love gets all that they want and wish, they are happy and fulfilled. That love is a journey of growth of both of them and that is why it is timeless and beautiful.
I really do Thank Allah Almighty for introducing me to such type of songs. I have an eclectic sort of ear and I loved things like this all the time 😀
