Song for Sunday

For readers’ comments, click HERE for the blog’s previous version.


If you have visited this blog often or even only occasionally, you know music gets its due share on this blog. In fact, a few of my recent postings (see here and here) have been about some of my all-time favourite songs.

So go ahead, ask me. Ask me if there is a particular song that I am enjoying today. Ok, don’t ask me. I will tell you anyway.

Yes, there is.

After a long time I listened to one of my favourite songs today. And of course I listened to it many times, over and over. Don’t know why I hadn’t felt like listening to it for so many days, weeks. But today being my first Sunday back home after being away for three weeks, this somehow turned out to be a perfect song for the day. Lingering, melodious, captivating, almost compelling the listener to slow down and go with the flow, flow of music, flow of the words, flow of the heart.
Listen and you might agree.

Singer/Composer: Jagjit Singh, Lyricist: Gulzar

And then to make the experience of the song even richer and fuller, I was reminded of the following lines by Rumi:
When I am with you, we stay up all night,
When you’re not here, I can’t get to sleep.
Praise God for these two insomnias!
And the difference between them.

So if the question for the day would be – Is there a poem and song for the day for you? My answer would be – yes, there is.

How about you, do you have a song for the day?
