Sometimes you listen to particular song or piece of music and changes your mood, drastically even. Then it's input.
Sometimes you are in a certain mood and create a song, a poem, a ghazal...or play an already created song on your guitar, harmonica, keyboard, piano or flute. Or maybe on your stereo. Then it's an output.
Sometimes without you realizing what's happening, it's both an input and an output!
Following are some of the songs that I have put in a loop at one time or another in my life. And I am talking about a single-song loop, not a playlist that I would play indefinitely..which I do. A lot.
Teri Ore from Singh is King
I have already posted before about the Goa to Poona journey when we played this in a loop. Even since then I have listened to this song in loop many times. Sometime to absorb it for the guitar learning at other times, just to enjoy it!
Jab dard nahin tha seene mein
Kishore Kumar's singing in this song is just superlative. I can't get enough of this. Incidently this is the song I was watching on my Tablet this morning that inspired this post.
Mujhko yaqeeN hai sach kehti thiiN jo bhi Ammi kehti thiiN
An amazingly beautiful ghazal sung by Jagjit Singh. Everything about this ghazal is awesome, including the fact that I can sing it without sounding horrible since it doesn't have any high notes.
several Laila Majnu songs
These I put in an exclusive playlist usually, but I have played each one of them also in a loop, sometimes by pressing the "Previous" button repeatedly for a long time!
- Tere Dar Pe Aaya Hoon
- Likh kar tera naam zameen par
- Yeh Dawa aaj duniya bhar se
Koi Chaudwi raat ka chaand bankar
A beautiful ghazal from Jagjit Singh's album. I looked for it for a long time before I found it and then ...you know..in the loop!
Haule haule - Rab ne bana di jodi
I heard it the first time when I was in my hotel in South Africa, and I got so taken with it, I downloaded the song, the video, and made the MP3 my ringtone. And then listened to it non-stop. Still love it.
Mozart's Symphony no. 25
I went crazy the day I heard that the first time. Still love it so much!
I probably have a few more, but I can't remember them offhand. Maybe I'll add later.
But I am sure it's a common thing. Don't you have some songs you just don't want to stop listening to?
P.S. Adding to the list:
Jaate ho jaane jaana - Parvarish
