Masakali...Masakali...

A sleepy afternoon at office[ yes..yes...damn it!! working on a long weekend] have put masakali in a loop and am hearing it over n over again[i know that's wat happens when played in a loop still]. Addictive I say, add to it the visuals of the song which run thru my mind. A cute sonam kapoor dancing with pigeon on her head...*sigh*...she looks a bit anorexic but adorable no doubt. Also liked her guts when she took on the old vixen shoba de.



Aah did I divert the topic? happens many times... like the other day at office we started speaking about fitness, john abraham came in and then the topic drifted off to bips, her you-know-whats... well men you know. We are like boomerangs, wherever we start the discussion ends in the same thing.



Coming back to Masakali[trying to] I dont' understand 40% of the lyrics, the other 60% has challenging words repeated...like masakali,matakali,jatak,burrrr...burrr. As an amatuer lyricist-Yesss I had written english lyrics for a tamil pop album, the album was a sell out, the only two released copies were bought by the music composer and his Sasural- I am amazed by some of the lyrics in our movies songs. Imagine Rang de basanti's title track by daler the first 3 lines are of great literary value, it goes "ding ding ding ding". Having heard ARR for the past 17 years[now I feel as old as dev anand] the use of catchy words has been his trademark and best part is rarely does it sound odd. It gel's with music and yeah tough to write an alternate for daler's energetic "ding ding ding". Next time you hear a ARR composition keep an eaye[or an ear] for this.



Ok I started the previous para with the aim of highlighting the amusing lyrics I have heard but ended up praising ARR. This is getting tough, with less than 6 hours of sleep in last 48 hours at work, blood shot eyes and trying to write a comprehensible post...The new project kick off is kicking me hard, so all those whose posts I have missed...a BIG sorry, forgiveness is next to godliness. So try to take the second spot after god.



The hectic weekend brings back memories of the previous weekend. That was something which I wish I could have every time, a trip to yercaud with a cool bunch of buddies. Decided to try something out of the world and yess it was weed!!. Weedy trip I shud say, but frankly it wasn't a great or memorabe experience. Weed is not for weirdos like me I suppose. Having a drink and getting a high is ok, but smoking something and forgetting the whole sense of time & space... often thinking abt the dialogue which indian movie actors utter when they regain consciousness i.e "Mein kahan ho". It's good if the weeder[one who smokes it] has happy memories and can go on a jolly trip.....surely it's not for loser's like me :D.



As of now this post looks like a weedy post...pointless,intentless,going towards nowhere, and... argh...lemme stop it righ here. Adios....have a great weedend..err...weekend..

I think Harris was good in giving those catchy words which blends well with music than ARR. And I wish you to have some enjoyable days ahead.

Ruth said...

Nautankey said...

Vimmu,
It was out of the earth darling...sorry nikhil :P

Nautankey said...

Kanagu,
I lvoed harris in varanam aayiram,but one issue I have with him is he is repetititve and to soem extent his music can all be related n grouped under one head.Liek VA n unnale unnale. Sad that he rarely comes out with different sounding/refreshing tunes. Something ARR is too good at,i loved taxi taxi and even latoo latoo..so un-rahmanish compositions.hope harris coems out with something wild n out of the box,ofcoz i am ready for weed supply :D

Thanks and wish u too the same

Nautankey said...

Nautankey said...

Perusu,
Praddy is right..masakali is the pigeons' name :).

And i am sure u can tolerate me with weed too..am better in weed than with JD :P

Nautankey said...

aaarti,
my lyircs :O no way...the scant amount of respect i hae with u folks wud also go down int he drain.

And the why why looks more like.. why without me :P than a why out of concern :D

Nautankey said...

Praddy,
You ignonimous...need some amount of guts to try that out...more guts than facing needles n tattoos u see :P

Nautankey said...

Nautankey said...

Nautankey said...

Gappuuu,

Nautankey said...

Kanagu,
Thanks a lot for helping me in deciphering wat the post was abt ..LOL..no idea wat it is about. As of now I have made a blog entry and have kept it active.

Yeah maula maula was also good..so were dilli 6 and kaala kutha...though the latter needs more hearing.

Nautankey said...

The blogger formerly known as Sansmerci said...

wow u ve writen lyrics for a pop album? watis it can i kno?

my dream is to write for a rock song one day (cos mostly i write dark poetry) and hear it being shouted out by zillion people in a concert :D howzzat for a dream ????

The blogger formerly known as Sansmerci said...

oh btw ur rite bout the weed thing... i heard writers write well wen on weed.. but hell no i tried and only got a head ache the next morn n cudnt even rem anything funny that i did.. alcohol rocks!

Nautankey said...

swarna,
it is one of those innumerable tamil pop albums which come out and vanish without a trace.. the lyrics were 'a couple of english lines'between the song depicting a love of a 16year old..Probly put a post on that.

And writing after weed..maan the only questions goign on in my mind was what,where n whys,no way writing. May be i can write down all the sad things[luv failures :P] and make a devdas or Dev D with that :)...alcohol any day!!
