So I have this tendency to associate songs with people; by people I mean my close friends and family members. For the time being I'll stick to friends. This odd habit of mine either lightens my mood or depresses me. Without memories life would definitely be dull. Reminiscing gives me great satisfaction but sometimes I really wish there was a 'Rewind' button that I could hit , that would take me down memory lane.

I'm on the brink of nostalgia right now. So here are some Musociations I have made :)

'Lemon Tree' by Fool's Garden.
One of our favourite numbers that we love singing together :)

'My Sharona' by The Knack.
Time to kick some ass! I remember the time we played it so loud that it drowned the sound of the doorbell! Apologies to my sister who finally lost her patience and started banging the door with all her might.

'Smile'  by Uncle Kracker.
You make me smile for the silliest reason. I guess that's why you are my best friend :)

All the Celtic numbers, my favourite one being 'Mood'. Always reminds me of you.:)

Any Carrie Underwood song, the best ones being 'Before he cheats' and 'Undo it'!
Rihanna's 'Rude Boy', Eminem's 'Love the way you lie' and 'Are you gonna be my girl' by Jet. Ah! the good old bike days. We ended up reaching school ten minutes late everyday.  

'Leave the pieces' by The Wreckers
This will always be our special song. I hope we make a good cover of this song someday. :)

'Sheila ki Jawani'
Belly dancing woohoo! You beat Katrina Kaif hollow!

I think I became a big Greenday fan after you gave me the whole '21st Century Breakdown' album on my pen-drive. 'East Jesus Nowhere', 'Peacemaker' and 'Restless Heart Syndrome' are my favourites.
To add to this, 'Give Me Novocaine' also reminds me of you.

Eminem's 'Must be the Ganja'. Kind of retarded, somewhat like you ;). I received the first few lines via sms just before you flew to Toronto. I still don't know what made you do that.

'Violet Hill' by Coldplay.
Ok whenever I hear this song I imagine you building a snowman on some purplish coloured hill. 

'Roxaaanne you don't have to put on the red light,
The days are over, you don't have to sell your body to the night.'
I'm obsessed with this song at the moment. I wish we could perform this one too!

'21 Guns' by Greenday.
Remember our disastrous attempt to perform this one for a so-called Poetry Recital program in school?
I will never forget that oh-we-are-so-fucked look we gave each other when we lost sync.

'Roadhouse Blues'  by The Doors.
'LET IT ROLL BAYYYBEE ROLL!' .Our favourite lunch-break song. :)

'Cindrella Man'  by Eminem.
Eminem rocks! This one is my favourite ;)

'The Look' by Roxette.
I still don't get the lyrics of the song except the 'Nanananana nananana na na, she's got the look!'
The song is sexy, just like you. ;)

'They don't really care about us' by MJ.
Ok I still don't know why this song reminds me of you but it is super catchy :)

'Munni Badnaam' from Dabangg.
You are a pro at the 'Main-jhandu-balm-hui' step. I still want to dance with you on this number.

'American Idiot' by Greenday.
St.Patrick's House picnic in tenth grade. We sang it ( the censored version of course ) throughout the bus journey. It was awesome!

'I'm just a kid' by Simple Plan.
Life was a nightmare in eleventh grade.We found good comfort in each other as we discussed our woes near the canteen, eating samosa sandwiches.

'The way I are' by Timbaland.
We danced like maniacs on this song on your birthday. We came up with weird moves!
'Please don't stop the music' by Rihanna
Because of your ringtone!

"Another head hangs lowly,
Child is slowly taken.
And the..ummm I forgot..dammit
Ok lets jump to the chorus!
In your head
In your head
zombieee zombieeee
zombie ey ey ey ey oh!!"
I hope you learn the lyrics completely and make me happy someday. Hahaha!

 'Dil hai chota sa choti si aasha' by Rahman.
I can't think of anyone but you whenever I hear this song. 
Rahman fans forevaa!

'Summer of '69' by Bryan Adams.
It was the best time of my life when we performed this song together. :)

'Tears don't fall' by BFMV.
'If Liverpool loses, tears will fall man.' I wanted to laugh out aloud when you said that but I supported your favourite team anyway.

'Wonderwall' and 'Importance of Being Idle' by Oasis.
You got me addicted to Oasis. :)

'I don't wanna miss a thing' by Aerosmith.
I was upset after failing Math and you sent me this song via Yahoo. I love it :)

'Fireflies'  by Owl City.
I love it when you sing this song. It suits you to the core! Dreamy, somewhat like you ;)

'Hey Jude' by The Beatles.
That was the first time I heard you sing, You were really good on stage. :)

'Hard Day's Night' by The Beatles.
The night before the Biology Prelim exam. It was a hard night as well, considering you hadn't touched your Biology book.

'Aal izz well'  from the film 'Three Idiots'
You gave me moral support before we appeared for that disastrous Physics exam in school. Fortunately we passed!

'Thousand Miles' by Vanessa Carlton.
We were singing this song by the pool. That was fun! :)

'Butterfly' by Crazy Town.
You were addicted to this song for a while and got me addicted too!

'Bounce' from the movie Step-up.
You are an awesome dancer. Hip-hop is your genre! :)

'As long as you love me' by BSB.
You sang this song in your own style. ;)

I guess there are many more musociations but these are some I can recall for the time being.
They make me happy, they do :)

The very fact that I'm actually posting stuff in my own blog amazes me. Not that I don't enjoy writing but this could turn out to be one of my fads. I hope that doesn't happen and I hope I keep posting regularly. Okay enough of hopes. It's time to go ahead and express myself through words. :)

Three weeks ago I rejoiced after my Board Examinations ended .With great ideas and plans almost spilling out of my head , I was sure a crazy summer awaited me though the Indian sytem of education wants to torture a seventeen year old with  AIPMT, AFMC, AIIMS,CET and other irksome entrance examinations required to get into esteemed medical colleges. I decided I wouldn't buckle under their pressure and would definitely keep some (= majority) time for relaxing.

Haha those plans and ideas seemed to have faded somehow. Maybe due to the oppressive weather. Maybe due to some family issues. Maybe because I'm too lazy. Maybe the noveltly of the freedom wore off within a span of a week. Whatever it is, all I have been doing is brooding and analysing ; true to my nature. Not to mention the obvious, my guitar and good music keeps me going. Meeting close pals in the evening , movies, books, practice tests , Facebook and well now this blog has also contributed.

I pray regularly, especially for my grandad who is suffering from neuro-endocrinal cancer. Cliched as it sounds, I have realised that the power which we worship, commonly known as God, can be a faithful and comforting friend. Infact better than those who cut themselves off from you just randomly. (I have this tendency to ramble, so bear with it.) Sometimes I really wonder if I'm a good friend. Maybe my efforts to show genuine concern and affection come across as annoying. (Oh! She is such a pain.) I admit I'm touchy and senstive and tend to overreact sometimes but come on, absurd behaviours irk me. However as Mum says, one ought to be thick-skinned under these circumstances and not care too much. Hard as it is for someone as touchy as me, I'm trying my best to follow her advice.

I have a good power of imagination. I imagine I'm performing for an audience that seems endless. A sea of appreciative and receptive individuals who are enjoying my compositions. It's amazing. It can actually happen. Hard work and determination can pay off. At this moment, this picture gives me great satisfaction.
I need to keep boredom away. These thoughts flit in and out of my head and tend to keep that monster away.
But they trouble me at night. Stupid as it sounds I cry for no reason at times.
