~~~Music and Lyrics ~~~

I was talking to a friend today..
And the discussion was How people misunderstand songs..

For example one of my favorite songs: Free Falling by Tom Petty..
People generally feel that this is the song about the real freedom and being really independent. 
Whereas the song is actually about a boy who is overdosing drugs and is in a relationship with a "Good Girl"

My point in the argument was whats wrong with misinterpreting songs. Everyone is entitled to his/her opinion. If 10 people listen to one particular song they can have 10 different opinions.. you never know what strikes the other person.. If a certain song makes you happy and helps you to connect things in your life then screw the real meaning !

My Fav situational songs are ( Don't think I am crazy):

 Every time I over exert, I stretch my self to the extreme I reach a point where I become really calm... I just relax in my bed and stare at the walls... That is the time when I think about the song Comfortably Numb.. No relation I agree.. But somehow that is the only song I think about. 

Every time I am on my bike and coming down from an incline ( The place where I stay is not plain, It is hilly)
I think of the song Free bird... Call me crazy or whatever .. The speed/ thrill makes me go Mad. 

Every time I run I think of the song Estranged .. esp the parts 
(Young at heart an' it gets so hard to wait
When no one I know can seem to help me now
Old at heart but I mustn't hesitate
If I'm to find my own way out 

When I find out all the reasons
Maybe I'll find another way, find another day
With all the changing seasons of my life
Maybe I'll get it right next time

Now that you've been broken down
Got your head out of the clouds
You're back down on the ground and you don't talk so loud
And you don't walk so proud any more, and what for

Well I jumped into the river
Too many times to make it home
I'm out here on my own, and drifting all alone
If it doesn't show give it time to read between the lines

'Cause I see the storm getting closer
And the waves they get so high
Seems everything we've ever known's here
Why must it drift away and die?

I'll never find anybody to replace you
Guess I'll have to make it through this time
Oh, this time without you

I knew the storm was getting closer
And all my friends said I was high
But everything we've ever known's here
I never wanted it to die)

I also think of the song" I am Mine "

You know sometimes when I come back late in the night and walking back home..I see the stars in the sky and think of the song "Chasing Cars"..!!!

I know you all must be thinking .."What is she blabbering about" Call me crazy or what... My music is very personal to me.. The thing is I don't have a very good music sense also.. Like I cant hear the tune for 2 seconds and guess the song...!!! 

I like to interpret music my way... People always interpret Modern art paintings in 10 different ways...
Then what is wrong with Music..?

Anyhow, coming back to the usual routine life... 
We had an off today.. I tried the 3rd recipe from the book Karotten-Schnitten

It did come out pretty well... I am so proud of myself :)
I had invited a couple of friends and one of them made my day..
He said.. " Pack the rest and sell it to a bakery" I was so happy... to hear that!!

Okay, now something exciting : I am going for a Metallica and Megadeth show.. cooool :)
This will be my second rock show.It just feels like yesterday when I went for the Iron Maiden show... (4 years ago ..).

Okay, let me sign off on this note..!!
Will catch you soon..

  1. That's not 'parts' of a song - it's the whole song.
    No way could you remember the complete lyrics while running !
