Monumental Soundbyte - 27


Tere Bina - From The Guru soundtrack (putting the artist here i think will be redundant since it will mean nothing to most people except Daddy's Girl)
Seeing as its my day today, i think its so fitting that i have a song that embodies my passion - India. Anyone who knows me will attest to the fact that i was probably Indian in my former life. I love India - the country, the culture, the food, the music and of course bollywood. I wont go into a full scale rant on what i love about this country but i will say that blogging has introduced me to a beautiful young woman who shares my passion and has quickly become my friend and will be travel companion as we travel to this country later this year.
I urge you all to see this movie if you can. Its based on the life of the MD of Reliance Industries and he Gurukant is played to perfection by Abhishek Bachchan (the son of the godfather of bollywood Amitabh Bachchan). His supportive wife is played by Aiswaraya Rai (former Miss World) and they got married in real life in April.
Okay - this song is amazing. I have shared this song with practically everyone that i know. I fell in love with the song obviously when i saw the movie and i couldnt wait to get my hands on it. Well i found the song and i had to find the lyrics translated. And when i found them, they took my breath away. One of the reasons i love Indian culture is its sensuality. The smells of everything from spices to perfume tease and tantalize the senses, the saris are the sexiest outfits ever - with the hint of skin and regality, the kama sutra and song lyrics like this one are about love. Not all this nonsense on the surface stuff but love that has to be described with phrases like .......i cant even begin to go there....So here are some portions of the translated lyrics of this song and you just might understand what i mean.....
Oh my love, what's the point in living without you
Without you, the moon's golden glow is impure
Without you, gold is brass
*Enjoy. Press play on the player thing to hear this song*
