One for C’est la vie ~ Emerson, Lake & Palmer


This is an old one. It’s by the musicians who go by the name of Emerson, Lake & Palmer. (Read about Emerson, Lake & Palmer)

Previously, I had posted about one of their songs called “Still… you turn me on”. This is another amazing track by them I’m not sure if most of you have heard this one. If not, just hit the play button.

Absolutely love the vocalist! What a voice!

Song: C’est la vie ~ Emerson, Lake & Palmer

Lyrics: 

C’est la vie

Have your leaves all turned to brown
Will you scatter them around you
C’est la vie.

Do you love
And then how am I to know
If you don’t let your love show for me
C’est la vie.

(Chorus) Oh, oh, c’est la vie.
Oh, oh, c’est la vie.
Who knows, who cares for me…
C’est la vie.

In the night
Do you light a lover’s fire
Do the ashes of desire for you remain.

Like the sea
There’s a love too deep to show
Took a storm before my love flowed for you
C’est la vie

(Chorus) Oh, oh, c’est la vie.
Oh, oh, c’est la vie.
Who knows, who cares for me…
C’est la vie.

Like a song
Out of tune and out of time
All I needed was a rhyme for you
C’est la vie.

Do you give
Do you live from day to day
Is there no song I can play for you
C’est la vie.

(Chorus) Oh, oh, c’est la vie.
Oh, oh, c’est la vie.
Who knows, who cares for me…
C’est la vie.

One for ‘Clothes of Sand’


A few days ago, someone had posted the link to this song on my Twitter timeline. I happened to check it out and loved the track. Amazing voice, lyrics and the music kept simple. So, I thought of sharing this song.

Song: Clothes of Sand ~ Nick Drake

Really liked these line:

“Can you now return to from where you came

 Try to burn your changing name 

Or with silver spoons and coloured light 

Will you worship moons in winter’s night.” 

 

I guess, good music just finds you. But are you listening enough?

 

Give it a listen!

One for my first time at recording…


 

So, I’ve been wanting to record my poems for a long time now. Today, I finally did it. It was a sudden outbreak of creative energy and I just went with the flow.

It’s a reading of my recently written poem: “Only one win matters” (Read Poem)

The audio is uploaded on Soundcloud and may I please inform you that it is pretty raw since I am no professional. Also, it’s Chopin playing in the background music. I thought it went well with the mood of the poem.  Listen to ‘Only one win matters’

Give it a listen & would love your feedback 🙂  One for my first time at recording

One for the marvels of Amit Trivedi…


Because Indian music is known to bring about so many variations. This is one song that proves the point. I’ve been singing this song all month long. Still singing…

The voices, the lyrics and the magic of Amit Trivedi’s terrific composition makes this a very beautiful song. This man can make music.

One for the catchy Jazz….


October has been quite the musical journey for me… Days have been running on the typical highs and lows, just like musical notes.

Here is one of my recent finds. This tune is stuck in my head for now…

Song: “Why did we fire the gun?” ~ Waldeck.

A find from my sister’s playlist. That’s the delight of exchanging songs. Really…

One for the charm of simple music…


Happy Birthday ~ The Innocence Mission

Rain ~ The Innocence Mission


And I’ve done it yet again! Haven’t posted in a while but know what? I’ve been collecting songs and see what I bring in this time…

Last month, I came across this band called “The Innocence Mission” and felt the joy of music kept simple. This is for the lovers of pure / acoustic / blues.

How a song could be so simple and ever more appealing? I’m glad that they still make music like this. Glad but even more grateful.

Give it a listen…

One for the self guessing “Who am I?” moments…


Have you heard “The Samples”? Great music. I really liked this track. Beautifully penned lyrics and composed. Nice acoustic sound!

Give it a listen.
