Music (or may be rhythm) is everything. And yes, that statement is cliché. You know music through an alcoholic’s anecdote, a singer’s passion, and a lover’s melody. Cajoling and wooing becomes far easier with a romantic song when you know you are not too good with words.
On a second thought, could there be a better way of romancing? You don’t need to be an Adele or a James Blunt to play the right cords. You don’t need to play the words to the beat. You simply need to be a die hard romantic.
It’s a tough call to pick only 5 out of the never ending list of love songs, but turn to the following five to set the pace of your heartbeats. Tune in!
Falling Slowly (Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova)
Words fall short of describing the feel! Yes Glen, Falling Slowly is one of those songs that make you take a dip in a wave of emotions minus the melodrama. It evokes a sense of respite; and, we love it more for that.
Dum Bhar Jo Udhar Munh Phere – Awaara (1951)
Some black and white melodies make the world a beautiful place. And this is exactly what “Dum Bhar Jo” does. Its passing lyrics make you smile along. Its effortless flow of words make you fall in love once again. A slow building flame takes over the mood.
Hearts a Mess (Gotye)
There is a certain harmony in the chords that none other song has ever offered. Gotye’s “Heart’s a mess” is contenting. It is a beautifully bred and magnificently manifested. It is indeed a synonym for romance. The lyrics are mystifying; they transport you to a different world.
Dheere Jalna (Paheli)
A mellifluous track that intersects love, life and dreams, Dheere Jalna is one of the most beautiful songs in the history of music. It tames the desires of romantic flames and unveils the misery of reality. Sonu Nigam – take a bow!
I Fall to Pieces (Patsy Cline)
How could any love song list be complete without a song or two on heart-aches. A lover’s sacrifice; an old-flames struggle – most love stories take that turn. I fall to pieces connects to the broken bits. It tricks them to believing that its about them.
“Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent”, when Victor Hugo said that, he probably was madly in love. What else could have prompted him to tie the two together?
