Tag 2- The Song Tag
Bavani of The Journey of Life has tagged me. Here are the tag rules-
1. Choose a song that describes/represents “you” and post it on your blog. You can add a story to it if you want.
I thought about this for a long time and can't seem to find one song that would describe me the best, I have pieces from song picturization and lyrics that I relate to at different times in my life. Illyaraja's music is my greatest salvation and while there are numerous songs of his that I am crazy about, I have always loved his "How to Name It" and "Nothing But Wind" albums.
The first one is an instrumental fusion album. The tracks how many ever times I listen to, woo me into their music and my mood changes with this background score. I love the tracks that are used in the movies Mouna Raagam and Veedu.
Song : Illayaraja's How to Name It
Tag Completed....feel free to take it up if you would like to share the song that best describes you.
