Music tag!

Well, almost everyone in the blogosphere has been writing about the books they read, possess, books which has made a difference to their lives, etc, etc, etc. I'm not a book person at all. Even though I have read a few here n there. I'm very much a music person. One can always see me with my headphones on in office and with earphones/mp3 player during travel. My neighbours even have the privilege(read untold misery) of hearing me sing while I bathe!! So, I thought, why not list out the songs I listen to, possess, and some songs that've made a difference in my life. Well, here goes! And oh ya - ppl interested can take this up too...

People who have to take this up

Hmm... waiting to know your musical interests! Then I'll have more new songs to download :)


  1. Dude .. I wonder what's gonna happen if you were let loose in Music World with "No holds barred".

    I would most probably visit the "death metal" section , but I would first make a beeline for the "teen" comedy section. ;)

  2. sanjiv - err, do you happen to know anyone in some music store?? clean sweep the entire metal, hard rock section baby! that's what i'm gonna do!

  3. Dude, why don't you link up my blog with yours? Maybe, I'll get more publicity then... :)

  4. VV - sure man! But I really doubt the publicity part - 'cos even I'm starved in that respect!!

  5. VV's blog certainly needs publicity!! Ha ha ha...

    As for Srini, dont think so... He has been "push-marketing" his blog like crazy ;-))

  6. sub0 -

  13. Anonymous6:45 pm IST

    Not heard of them... what kind of music do they make?

  14. Anonymous9:45 am IST

    Well they make rock music, but some call it alternate rock and i call it progressive rock cause of my favourite album of theirs "Lateralus". An awesome album. Must listen in this album are Lateralus, Disposition, Schism, Parabol and Parabola. Just a tearser when it comes to lyrics

    Black then white are
    All I see in my infancy.
    Red and yellow then came to be,
    Reaching out to me.
    Lets me see.
    As below, so above and beyond, I imagine
    Drawn beyond the lines of reason.
    Push the envelope. watch it bend.

    Thats Lateralus lyrics for u. Listen to it n let me know how it is.


What I want to say is:
