Music is forever…!!

Sidonie Gabrielle once said “Music is love in search of a word". Music is something you listen to because it is soothing to your ears, it makes you happy or because it simply connects with your current state of mind. 

I always thought there were only two kinds of music Good and Bad. 

But lately music is being associated with sexuality, personality, age and many other things.

What provoked me to write this blog was a simple conversation with my mom,

Me: Hi ma, how are you, what you doing??

Mom: We are just making Egg bonda, for the first time your dad is actually trying to help me in the kitchen. What are you doing?

Me: I am just listening to some Thiyagaraja Keerthana's ma.

Mom: Thu buddha ho gaya re ( You have become old son)

The rest of the conversation had more to do with egg bondas but, I thought why do Thiyagaraja( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tyagaraja) or Annamacharya (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Annamacharya)  Keerthana's have to be associated with some ones age. 

It also reminds me of something when I was in 7th grade, The when Back Street boys were a really happening band. I knew quite a few people who enjoyed their music, me being one of them and today some of the same people say this when someone listens to BSB... "Dude Back street boys are so gay ".... sometimes people say the same about Phil Collins... 

It saddens me to see that some people don’t want to listen to Elton John's music just because he is Gay, How does it matter people what matters is if you like his music or not.

I was once listening to an A.R.Rahman song from the Tamil movie Kadhal Desam, a friend of mine said " Dude chandu you should listen this kinda songs" playing some song which did not appeal to me . 

Finally what i wanted to say is Music is either good or bad, Like or hate the music because it’s of your choice or not but not because you don’t like the person who made it and Ultimately ones choice is music is a reflection of one’s Soul and inner feelings so please respect it.

"Music never gets old with time , It just gets better"

  1. True that Chandu! Btw, good to see you here.. I spend quite some time here too :P

    I can actually relate to what you’re saying, specially cause I was a huge Backstreet Boys fan…infact half the world was…. its a fact that people bring in discrimination in terms of music too.. Look at Justin Bieber .. I don’t understand why half the world accuses him of having a girls voice..He’s was just a kid when he came into the industry.. I think a large part of the criticism comes is also product of jealousy too. When you see such a young boy achieve such massive fame, it becomes hard to digest the fact.. Good point you raised here…

    And I specially like the last line :) Hope to read more of ur blogs then :)

    I’ve just got back from seeing Brian May! He was in concert with Kerry Ellis. I was never a big Queen fan but have always had a soft spot for Brian May. Kerry Ellis was someone I wasn’t familiar with before tonight but she has the most amazing voice. Brilliant concert made all the more fantastic by the man who sat next to me who was obviously totally in love with Brian May, Kerry Ellis, Queen and music. He started off dancing in his seat, but it wasn’t long before he was up boogying away and having the time of his life. Of course, when you’re next to someone like that you can’t help but join in. So I did! Wonderful!

    As William Shakespeare so eloquently put it – “If music be the food of love, I’m gonna stuff myself!”

    You ask how much I love you
    Must I explain?
    I love you, oh, my darling,
    Like roses need rain.
    You ask how long I’ll need you
    I’ll tell you true
    Until the 12th of never
    I’ll still be loving you.

    I knew early on that the guy sitting next to me wore his heart on his sleeve. There was a supporting act called “Vintage Trouble” who sang a song called “Nobody Told Me” – “Nobody told me how heavy this life was gonna be”. Afterwards he said “tell me about it!” I knew then that he was someone who’d been through the mill. He made an apology to me at the end for his exhuberance throughout the whole performance and I said “Please don’t apologise, you’re just the sort of person I like sitting next to at a concert.”

    It was good to see “Four on the Floor” at one of our old stomping grounds on Friday night!
