soundtracks of my life* 

I guess Simon (Neophyte, not Cowell) was right about me being a music lover. Music has influenced me since I learnt how to breathe, I think. Though I am hopeless at playing any music instrument except maybe the male organ [Ha. Bad joke! Bad joke!], I appreciate its greatness and deep influence over my life. And it still is an important aspect of my life, day in day out.

So when Mr. Neophyte tagged me on this meme on evil vengence mission, I decided to turn it around for good. Honestly I think it's a good meme, though it's not as easy as it looks. Here goes...

1. One song… from your early childhood:
Sunday Morning – Daniel Boone
[ This song is the most chirpiest song I can think of during my pre-school years. Yea, me is 70’s child and am proud of it. It made the school day bearable and that Sundays are beautiful. After all, it is Sabbath day.]

2. One song… you are associating with your first big love:
Doa Buat Kekasih – Rahim Sarip & Khatijah Ibrahim
[Because my first big love was a Malay and that was like the hottest Malay love song back then. During camping trips then, I would pull a victim for a duet of this song as my performance. Either that or it was ‘Right Here Waiting’ by Richard Marx.]

3. One song… which reminds you to one of your holidays:
Goodbye My Lover – James Blunt
[I’ve explained this on Moomoo Vista Pt 2. I had heard this playing while I was in Landmark (a giant bookstore in Chennai) and was mesmerized with it. I went to the information counter and asked for the song title. It’s definitely the song to play and cry your gut out when you’re feeling hollow. Sounds familiar, my dear Ir? Heh.]

4. One song… you like, but you have got problems to confess:
The Sign - Ace Of Base
[Ya ya…the lyrics makes no sense but you must agree it is contagious. Another few of such songs are ‘Everytime’ by Britney and ‘Rock Me Amadeus’ by Falco. I care not to elaborate.]

5. One song… which accompanied you, while you were lovesick:
Kau Ilhamku - Manbai

6. One song… you listened to most often in your life:
With Or Without You – U2
[Actually this and ‘Every Breath You Take’ by Sting remain as my All-Time Fave Songs. They are classics la.]

7. One song… which is your most favourite instrumental:
Theme of Superman – John Williams
[Actually I love most of John’s works, especially all the 70’s and early 80’s soundtracks like E.T, Encounters of the Third Kind, Indiana Jones, Jaws and Poltergeist.]

8. One song… which represents one of your most favourite bands:
Sit Down – James
[I love UK bands, especially bands from Manchester. James is the only band which I own the collection of all their albums. Their style change from album to album and I love them so. This song makes me feel as though Jesus is talking to me especially the end bit…

Oh those who feel the breath of sadness, sit down next to me
Those who find they’re touch by madness, sit down next to me
Those who find themselves ridiculous, sit down next to me
In love, in fear, in hate, in tears (X3)
Oh sit down, sit down, sit down, sit down next to me…]

9. One song… in which you recognizes yourself or through which you feel somehow understood:
Girls Just Wanna Have Fun – Cyndi Lauper
[Don’t ask!]

10. One song… which reminds you to a certain occasion (and the occasion):
Do They Know It’s Christmas – Band Aid
[It’s my favourite Christmas song! Even though it’s been 9 years I’ve embraced Christianity, I am miserable when it comes to the Carols.]

11. One song… you like and which belongs to the Hip Hop / Rap genre:
Where Is The Love? – Black Eyed Pea
[Oh, oh…can I add ‘Ice Ice Baby’ by Vanilla Ice?]

12. One song… which is the best for you to relax:
God Will Make A Way - Don Moen
[Or this - 'Anchorage' by Michelle Shocked. This song actually made me wanna visit Anchorage one fine day. I really can imagine myself settling down and lead a slow pace lifestyle there.]

13. One song… which symbolizes a great time in your life:
Caravan Of Love – The Housemartins
[This one is definitely another classic. This is the same people that also make up Beautiful South and Fat Boys Slim.]

14. One song… which is your favourite song at the moment:
Sorry - Madonna
[This one brings me back to my disco dancing days. When my hip bone was still strong. Ha.]

15. One song… which you would dedicate to your best friend:
Time After Time – Eva Cassidy
[This is a remake of Cindy Lauper’s classic which is really brilliant. So sad that Eva had to die at the tender age of 33 due to cancer. Wasted.]

16. One song… which you got the feeling that no one besides you like it:
Me Myself I - Joan Armatrading
[This is the best song for a hermit like me.]

17. One song… you like because of its lyrics:
Hijau – Zainal Abidin

18. One song… you like very much and which is neither German nor English:
Vande Mataram – AR Rahman

19. One song… which helps you to work off:
Wonderwall – Ryan Adams
[This is a wonderful cover of Oasis’ classic. Ryan’s version is more emo.]

20. One song… which should be played on your funeral:
I Started A Joke – Bee Gees

and a bonus.

21. One song...which you would like to play when you lose your virginity. [Your backside, y'mean??]
Tonight's The Night - Rod Stewart
