Music and dance

I was going through some blogs the other day and I found this group of people who have this project where they record CD’s of their favourite songs and send it to each other. These people are all spread across the world.

I think that is a lovely thing to do. Music instantly uplifts you, no matter what, and even if you’re sad or heartbroken, there are songs to keep you company that seem to touch your inner heart, as if they were written for you. My sister has a number of friends who do things like that for her – and there are others who get gifts like that as well – you know, for birthdays and things. I haven’t got any CD’s like that till date (sniff!) – so if anyone is ever interested :-), then here are some songs I will listen to again and again for life.

1. Absolutely everybody – Vanessa Amorosi
2. Time after time – Cyndi Lauper
3. Sexual healing – Marvin Gaye
4. Thank You – Dido
5. Inner Smile – Texas
6. Life – Des’ree
7. Out of reach – Gabrielle
8. Smooth operator – Sade
9. With or without you – U2
10. Come away with me – Norah Jones
11. Don’t know why – Norah Jones
12. Mrs. Robinson – Simon and Garfunkel
13. Over the Rainbow – Wizard of Oz film soundtrack
14. Raindrops keep fallin’ on my head – Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid film soundtrack
15. My favourite things – Sound of Music film soundtrack
16. Respect – Aretha Franklin
17. Stand by me – Ben King
18. Fields of gold – Sting
19. Every breath you take – The Police
20. Smooth – Santana feat. Rob Thomas
21. Ain’t no mountain high enough – Marvin Gaye, from Stepmom film soundtrack
22. Sweet home Alabama – Lynrd Skynrd
23. All the people of the world – Safri Duo
24. Aicha – Outlandish
25. Say a little prayer – Diana King from My Best Friend’s Wedding film soundtrack

They’re mostly happy feel-good songs with tunes that will make your feet want to get out of your shoes and dance (yeah – even if you don’t ‘know how to’. I don’t understand how people can’t know how to dance. Dance is an expression of yourself. It doesn’t matter if you have two left feet or not. Unless you plan to give a stage performance or something!)

You might be alone in a foreign country with the bleakest weather you have ever seen, or it might be bright and sunny and you’re around people you love – just dance. For yourself, for life!

I also cant believe how ppl cant sketch.'I don’t understand how people can’t know how to draw. Drawing is an expression of yourself. It doesn’t matter if you have two left hands or not.' :) :D

dancing is so primitive. I say that because I cant dance.

I might not be a first-class artist (i think i'm baaaaad at it)..but i still say i can draw just as anyone with two hands can draw...and anyone can dance.

dancing is about as primitive as drawing is. :-)

Why isn't there a Beatles song on this list ?

wanderstruck said...

sharad: good point. 'imagine' is one of my favourites, though that is lennon and not the beatles as a whole i suppose. i will work on getting a beatles song into my next list, due to be out soon!
