Too many things are happening and yet they all seem so petty. Like, yesterday i spent about 4 hours straight on the PC finishing an article with pugsie on bloody gtalk, so that's a first! And just when I thought my work was finished, I realised I had to cut down my coldplay review by 100 words. And I've always been on the other side, really. I've always found it a lot easier to articulate what I have to say in less words, so I never had a problem with exceeding word limit, untill you ask me to talk about music.

You know, I've realised that most of my posts are a whine in a way. Mostly about the pitiful state of my romantic life, or about things here and there that bother me. And I just realised that there are so many thing out there that can easily put a smile on my face. EASILY. To admitt, I'm quite a sucker for cliches. I love babies, flowers, a cute pet or even a stray dog on the road, and frankly with time I have learnt to accept it. I don't go on criticizing things just for the hec of criticism or because apparently, being cynical is the new trend. Me and Best friend have always been a certain way, very very cynical, our standards are UP there (sometimes it gets scary because you realize that your demans are very specific and minute), but on the other hand, we both love the most cheesiest things. Seriously, we're corny people. And I will not reveal how corny with the risk of being branded a dork.

But apart from this interesting contrast I realised, that I'm not just a regular music "freak" or a music "buff". People have preferances, and so do I. But I know there are very few who appreciate music as a whole the way do. Lets put it this way... I'm madly, head over heels in love with music. Any form any type. My preferances is what I will listen to, or what you'll find in my ipod, but you give me any song and I'll start humming it in a day. I believe in the power of music, and you'll have to trust me, it certainly does have power.

I don't think my love for music will ever change. It'll always remain. And among all my cynical attributes, my "make fun of xyz" time with Best Friend, my ranty/whiny/defensive marathons... i realised that all I need... to calm me down, is one musical note. It's something that'll always remain a part of me.

P.s- I was going to title this post as "music in my soul"... i realised it would create some very OTT reactions.

sweet what music does to people...why dont you do a lil critty analysis for a few bands on the block that you like.Not exactly a genre, style kind of an eval, but more on the "this is my walking song, this is my reading song etc etc.Would be enlightening!!:)

I'm already doing that for a DU newspaper... I mean more or less, wouldnt want to repeat it again :) Plus, i can't give solid opinions on music bands. Like critically right opinions... it'll take me too long and i'll just go on. I won't stop!
