Stronger!!

My song of the day.

The song that is always on repeat mode when I am low.

The song that might have been written for a heart break, but nevertheless, it never fails to lift me up in any situation.

The song that I could literally scream into the void, and even dedicate to someone if I wanted to. (Despite my non-lyrical voice.)

The song, that gives me power.

The song that gives me strength.

The song that makes me stronger,

That makes me a fighter.

A song that keeps me going, no matter what!

 

Stronger

Kelly Clarkson

You know the bed feels warmer
Sleeping here alone
You know I dream in color
And do the things I want

You think you got the best of me
Think you had the last laugh
Bet you think that everything good is gone
Think you left me broken down
Think that I’d come running back
Baby you don’t know me, ’cause you’re dead wrong

What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn’t mean I’m lonely when I’m alone
What doesn’t kill you makes a fighter
Footsteps even lighter
Doesn’t mean I’m over ’cause you’re gone

What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, stronger
Just me, myself and I
What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn’t mean I’m lonely when I’m alone

You heard that I was starting over with someone new
But told you I was moving on over you

You didn’t think that I’d come back
I’d come back swinging
You try to break me but you see what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn’t mean I’m lonely when I’m alone
What doesn’t kill you makes a fighter
Footsteps even lighter
Doesn’t mean I’m over ’cause you’re gone

What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, stronger
Just me, myself and I
What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn’t mean I’m lonely when I’m alone

Thanks to you I got a new thing started
Thanks to you I’m not the broken-hearted
Thanks to you I’m finally thinking ’bout me
You know in the end the day to left was just my beginning
In the end

What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn’t mean I’m lonely when I’m alone
What doesn’t kill you makes a fighter
Footsteps even lighter
Doesn’t mean I’m over ‘cause you’re gone

What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, stronger
Just me, myself and
What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn’t mean I’m lonely when I’m alone

What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, stronger
Just me, myself and I
What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn’t mean I’m lonely when I’m alone

When I’m alone

3 Days Lyrical Challenge- Day3

So after a song from 2018 and then reverting back to 1960, today I am in a fix. As soon as I heard lyrical challenge, I knew my all time favourites, and go to songs will be included here. But I haven’t until now, so today when I cannot choose from these two songs I take the liberty to put up two songs today. I am sorry I just cannot pick one between these two. I have been listening to these two songs since years and I never get enough of them. They are always on my list, always! So I am almost possessed my them 😉 (If you know what I mean)

The first song is somewhere between my two time varying selections; from 1990. The movie from which I take this song is ‘Jurm’.

Singers: Kumar Sanu, Sadhana Sargam
Lyrics: Indeevar
Music: Rajesh Roshan

Jab koi baat bigad jaaye jab koi mushkil pad jaaye
Tum dena saath mera o humnawaa
Jab koi baat bigad jaaye jab koi mushkil pad jaaye
Tum dena saath mera o humnawaa
Naa koi hai na koi tha zindagi mein tumhaare siva
Tum dena saath mera o humnawaa
Tum dena saath mera o humnawaa

Ho chaandni jab tak raat deta hai har koi saath
Tum magar andheron mein na chhodna mera haath
Ho chaandni jab tak raat deta hai har koi saath
Tum magar andheron mein na chhodna mera haath
Jab koi baat bigad jaaye jab koi mushkil pad jaaye
Tum dena saath mera o humnawaa
Na koi hai na koi tha zindagi mein tumhaare siva
Tum dena saath mera o humnawaa

Wafadaari ki vo rasmein nibhayenge hum tum kasmein
Ek bhi saans zindagi ki jab tak ho apne bas mein
Wafadaari ki vo rasmein nibhayenge hum tum kasmein
Ek bhi saans zindagi ki jab tak ho apne bas mein
Jab koi baat bigad jaaye jab koi mushkil pad jaaye
Tum dena saath mera o humnawaa
Na koi hai na koi tha zindagi mein tumhaare siva
Tum dena saath mera o humnawaa

Dil ko mere hua yakeen hum pehle bhi mile kahin
Silsila ye sadiyon ka koi aaj ki baat nahin
Dil ko mere hua yakeen hum pehle bhi mile kahin
Silsila ye sadiyon ka koi aaj ki baat nahin
Jab koi baat bigad jaaye jab koi mushkil pad jaaye
Tum dena saath mera o humnawaa

 

Jab koi baat bigad jaaye jab koi mushkil pad jaaye
Tum dena saath mera o humnawaa
Na koi hai na koi tha zindagi mein tumhaare siva
Tum dena saath mera o humnawaa
Tum dena saath mera o humnawaa

This is literally my go to song. I don’t know I love it-

 

And now the next song. I don’t know what to say except I love it too.

I do realise that I am picking all the old songs now and you might think what an oldie this person is, but okay, I got it. It is still my favourite too :-p

The song is from the movie  ‘Woh Kaun Thi’, a 1964 movie.

Song : Lag Ja Gale Ki Phir Ye Hasin Raat
Music : Madan Mohan Kohli
lyrics : Raja Mehdi Ali Khan
Singers : Lata Mangeshkar

Lag Ja Gale Ki Phir Ye Hasin Raat Ho Na Ho
Shaayad Phir Is Janam Men Mulaaqaat Ho Na Ho
Lag Jaa Gale …

Ham Ko Mili Hain Aaj, Ye Ghadiyaan Nasib Se
Ji Bhar Ke Dekh Lijiye Ham Ko Karib Se
Phir Aap Ke Nasib Men Ye Baat Ho Na Ho
Shaayad Phir Is Janam Men Mulaaqaat Ho Na Ho
Lag Jaa Gale …

Paas Aaiye Ki Ham Nahin Aaenge Baar-Baar
Baahen Gale Men Daal Ke Ham Ro Le Zaar-Zaar
Aankhon Se Phir Ye Pyaar Ki Barasaat Ho Na Ho
Shaayad Phir Is Janam Men Mulaaqaat Ho Na Ho

Lag Ja Gale Ki Phir Ye Hassin Raat Ho Na Ho
Shaayad Phir Is Janam Men Mulaaqaat Ho Na Ho
Lag Jaa Gale …

Tell me you don’t like this song in the least and I don’t know what am I going to do 😀

 

Happy listening-  to these oldies 😀

Also, if you are not participating in this challenge, would you please just mention one song, just one from your all time favourites. They say your taste of music lets people know what kind of a person you are. So just curious. 🙂

 

3 Days Lyrical Challenge- Day 2

After my first and very recent song in the challenge, today I use a very, very old one. Call me old fashioned, but what can I say except the fact that I love this song too.

The song is from the movie ‘Dil Apna Aur Preet Parai’

Music : Jaikishan Dayabhai Panchal, Shankar Singh Raghuvanshi
lyrics : Shailendra (Shankardas Kesarilal)
Singer: Lata Mangeshkar

The lyrics to the songs are purely mesmerizing.

Ajib Dastan Hai Yeh
Kaha Shuru Kaha Khatam
Yeh Manjile Hai Kaun Si Naa
Woh Samajh Sake Naa Ham
Ajib Dastan Hai Yeh
Kaha Shuru Kaha Khatam
Yeh Manjile Hai Kaun Si Naa
Woh Samajh Sake Naa Ham
Yeh Roshni Ke Sath Kyu
Dhuan Utha Chirag Se
Yeh Roshni Ke Sath Kyu
Dhuan Utha Chirag Se
Yeh Khwab Dekhti Hu Mai
Ke Jag Padi Hu Khwab Se
Ajib Dastan Hai Yeh
Kaha Shuru Kaha Khatam
Yeh Manjile Hai Kaun Si Naa
Woh Samajh Sake Naa Ham
Mubarke Tumhe Ke
Tum Kisi Ke Nur Ho Gaye
Mubarke Tumhe Ke
Tum Kisi Ke Nur Ho Gaye
Kisi Ke Itne Pas Ho Ke
Sab Se Dur Ho Gaye
Ajib Dastan Hai Yeh Kaha
Shuru Kaha Khatam
Yeh Manjile Hai Kaun Si Naa
Woh Samajh Sake Naa Ham
Kisi Kaa Pyar Leke Tum
Naya Jahan Basaoge
Kisi Kaa Pyar Leke Tum
Naya Jahan Basaoge
Yeh Sham Jab Bhi Aayegi
Tum Hamko Yad Aaoge
Ajib Dastan Hai Yeh
Kaha Shuru Kaha Khatam
Yeh Manjile Hai Kaun Si Naa
Woh Samajh Sake Naa Ham

Okay I got nothing more to say about this song. Tell me about your views on this if you have heard this song (Chances are many might not have considering it’s age) or else simply tune in to this-

Three Day Lyrical Challenge – Day 1

Recently I have been nominated for this musical challenge by  the_aestheticspirit. I have come to love her work, and if you give her a peep I am pretty sure you will love her work too. She writes wonderful prose and poems, and has a very insightful mind and a lovely heart.

So for my Day 1, I choose a very heart touching song, which has a melody which sways me with a rhythm which I had not known until it’s release which is sadly very recently. This song is a from a Bollywood movie’s album, which isn’t even present in the movie and most people have not even heard it. At least most people that I know tell me that they haven’t heard of it. But the first time I heard it I was hooked, gripped, stuck, clutched by it. Not the tune, but the music, the rhythm, the lyrics, the song, it mesmerizes me as a unit. The lyrics touch my ‘Rooh’ (Soul)

Okay, I guess I have put up high hopes for the song, you might not even like it, the choice is yours. But I take the liberty to call it one of my favourites for this year.

The song is ‘Tab bhi Tu from the album of ‘October’. (Sadly the songs aren’t present in the movie)

Singer- Rahat Fateh Ali Khan

Music- Anupam Roy

Lyrics- Tanveer Ghazi.

Meri rooh karegi fariyad
Meri saasein kahin kho jayengi
Tab bhi tu mere sang rehna
Tab bhi tu mere sang rehna
Tab bhi tu mere sang rehna

Jab rakh banega yeh suraj
Aur dhoop dhuaan ho jayegi
Tab bhi tu mere sang rehna
Tab bhi tu mere sang rehna
Tab bhi tu mere sang rehna

Sajde ki tarah phir aakhein jhukin
Phir palkein namazi huyin
Tere zikra mein thi kuchh aisi nami
Sookhi saasein bhi taazi huyin

Jab umra ki awara baarish
Sab rang mere dho jayegi
Tab bhi tu mere sang rehna
Tab bhi tu mere sang rehna
Tab bhi tu mere sang rehna

Taveez hai meri mutthi mein
Taveez mein hai tasveer teri
Uljhi si lakeerein hath mein hain
Tu suljhaaye takdeer meri.

Jab waqt karega chhal mujhse
Takdeer khafa ho jayegi
Tab bhi tu mere sang rehna
Tab bhi tu mere sang rehna
Tab bhi tu mere sang rehna

Meri rooh karegi fariyad
Meri saasein kahin kho jayengi
Tab bhi tu mere sang rehna
Tab bhi tu mere sang rehna
Tab bhi tu mere sang rehna

Well, I find the song as good as the movie, simply like a poem, beautiful and something which touches your soul and wraps its arms around it to comfort you with something you have never had.
