Have you seen the movie “Shawshank Redemption”? There’s a conversation between the two lead characters Red and Andy.
Red: Oh, they let you tote that record player down there, huh? I could’a swore they confiscated that stuff.
Andy: (taps his head)The music was here…(taps his heart) and here. That’s the one thing they can’t confiscate, not ever. That’s the beauty of it. Haven’t you ever felt that way about music, Red?
That’s the way I feel about music too. This countdown is just going to be a reflection of that. This is not going to be a justification of what is good music or bad music or right music. This is an honest outpour of all the new music that invaded my heart in the year 2006. The new songs that got stashed into my album of all time favorites. 20 songs from the movies released in 2006 would be presented in countdown as obviously I got to share which I like the most. Although a song’s beauty is intangible, I have taken the ‘Song Picturization’ for scaling purposes. However, ultimately it’s the feel good factor, sweetness and rhythm that are going to slice us apart with divinity.
This post is purely dedicated to my best Music Director – AR Rahman whose 3 songs (Rang De Basanti, Water) have been nominated in Oscars!!! The countdown will start from the next post…
