Best 15 love songs on my playlist (Side A : English)

Here is my list of top 15 love songs of all time.  Make a playlist, and enjoy them back to back. You will be amused by the environment they going to make 😉

All of them are my favorites with powerful lyrics and soothing music;  listed in no particular order.

I request you to have patience this is a bit long. 🙂

1. I wanna grow old with you . Singer : Westlife

ð  This is an ultimate song. Perfect one to dedicate to someone special; in return endless love guaranteed.

Another day  , without your smile……… I wanna grow old with you …..I wanna die lying in your arms , I wanna grow old with you  , I wanna be looking in your eyes , I wanna be there for you , Sharing everything you do , I wanna grow old with you .”

2.  It must be love – Singer : Enrique Iglesias

ð  Play the song , you will get the feeling with the start up beat only. The loving (read seducing) voice has his own charm.  If you can relate to it – you must be in love.

Do you know you control, every single breath I take….. It must be love baby, Coz it’s killing me looking in your eyes, It must be love coz, Every time you walk away I just fall apart

3. Lost inside your love . Singer : Enrique Iglesias

ð  Melodramatic , but romantic (girls will agree 🙂 )

Now one is the key, two is the door, Three is the path that will lead us to four, Five is the time you kidnap my mind , Into ecstasy

4.  Hero  –  Singer : Enrique Iglesias

ð  This song has been placed in top 100 songs of last century. For Enrique Lovers it’s an anthem.

Would you swear, That you’ll always be mine? Or would you lie? Would you run and hide? Am I in too deep? Have I lost my mind? I don’t care, you’re here tonight

5. You are still the one – Singer : Shania Twain

ð  There is a story behind this song. Media speculated Shania’s marriage to much older Lange was for her career benefit. This song was the answer to their criticism.

They said “I bet they’ll never make it” , But just look at us holding on, We’re still together still going strong….You’re still the one I run to, The one that I belong to, You’re still the one I want for life, You’re still the one I love, The only one I dream of You’re still the one I kiss good night ….

 6. Could I have this kiss forever– Singer : Enrique Iglesias and Whitney Hosutan

ð  I first heard this song when I was in class XII , and since then in love with it. The magic of Whitney Houston and Enrique is amazing. Listen this on a candle light dinner , just you two 🙂

I don’t want any night to go by, Without you by my side, I just want all my days, Spend being next to you, Lived for just loving you , And baby, oh by the way…… Could I hold you for a lifetime, Could I look into your eyes, Could I have this night to share this night together, Could I hold you close beside me, Could I hold you for all time, Could I could I have this kiss forever ,Could I could I have this kiss forever, forever ”

Maybe (Enrique Iglesias song)

7. Everything I Do , I Do it for you – Singer : Bryan Adams

ð  Don’t tell me this song is not worth this list. I can’t help it, it’s Bryan Adams ! (by the way , we happen to share our birthday date 🙂 )

Look into my eyes, you will see ,What you mean to me, Search your heart, search your soul, And when you find me there you’ll search no more, Don’t tell me it’s not worth tryin’ for, You can’t tell me it’s not worth dyin’ for, You know it’s true, Everything I do, I do it for you

8. Stand By Me – Singer : John Lennon

ð  That’s the beauty of the song, being copied / revised by so many singers. Even we have a Bollywood version of it, featured in SRK’s Ra.One.

When the night has come, And the land is dark, And the moon is the only light we’ll see, No I won’t be afraid, no I won’t be afraid, Just as long as you stand, stand by me  “

 9. I will be there for you – Singer : Backstreet Boys

ð  Larger than life lyrics which every girl wants to listen in that way.

Don’t say a word, I understand, You wanna know if I’m still your man, Girl can’t you tell by the touch of my hand ………. Don’t ever doubt, Your trust in me, I’ll give you my heart, So honestly, Deep in my soul, Baby, you’ll find a dream, I’ll never change, Girl, I promise you

10. When you say nothing at all – Singer : Ronan Keating

ð  Lovely lyrics lovely video. It says it all.

All day long, I can hear people, Talking out loud, But when you hold me near, You drown out the crowd, Try as they may, They could never define, What’s been said, Between your Heart and mine  …………… The smile on your face, The truth in your eyes, The touch of your hand, Let’s me know, That you need me

11. My heart will go on. – Singer : Celine Dion .

ð  Does this need an explanation, every time I hear this track ,oops , it’s ‘heartbeat’ , I am in tears

Love can touch us one time, And last for a lifetime, And never let go till we’re gone

12. Truly Madly Deeply – Singer : Savage Gardens

ð  For that teenage love, full of emotions and dreams. Truly madly deeply in love.

I want to stand with you on a mountain, I want to bathe with you in the sea, I want to live like this forever, Until the sky falls down on me.”

13. Words – Singer:  Boyzon

ð  Depiction of selfless love, it’s only words I have (as a blogger, yupzz …..it’s only words)

Talk in everlasting words , And dedicate them all to me , And I will give you all my life
I’m here if you should call to me  ……….. This world has lost its glory , Let’s start a brand new story , Now my love , You think that I don’t even mean
 ”

14. May be – Singer : Enrique Iglesias

ð For that adrenaline rush, may be he wants to come back , may be he doesn’t. It’s Enrique , it has to be my favorite. After all he is my first love..

If I had one single wish, I’d go back to, The moment I kissed you goodbye, No matter how hard I try
I can’t live, Without you in my life, Maybe you’ll say, You still want me, Maybe you’ll say, That you don’t, Maybe we said, It was over, But baby I can’t let you go
 ”

15. Here I am.-Singer : Bryan Adams

ð  Here I am this is me … the power and effect of lyrics , ‘here I am’ is my whats app and skype status , and I have introduced myself in my one of my previous blogs ‘this is me’.

Here we are we’ve just begun ,And after all this time our time has come ,Ya here we are still goin’ strong ,Right here in the place where we belong ,Here I am next to you ,And suddenly the world is all brand new ,Here I am where I’m gonna stay ,Now there’s nothin standin in our way ,Here I am this is me

Hope you love these songs , the way I do. Your playlist is always welcome 🙂

Best 15 love songs on my playlist (Side B : Hindi ), will be out soon.

Never fall in love ; Rise in love ,

Love yourself

Hey Guys and pretty gals !

Whatz up ?

February has come, and has brought along the season of love ❤ , love is in the air …isn’t it ? Radio is playing only love songs, websites are flashing dating tips and valentine ideas. Markets are decorated with colors of red, heart shaped balloons are sold on every traffic signal.
 
It’s all mushy – mushy feelings inside every young heart. Want to dress up nicely, look your best, struggling to find one perfect gift, filtering love songs for a romantic playlist, planning romantic getaways or that elusive date. Just love and happiness all around. Icing on the cake , end of season sale is still on ( 🙂 ). Dil to bacha hai jee ….

So why is it, that out of 12 months we feel February to be the most romantic. We have 365 days in a year , but we celebrate 14th of Feb as the Day of Love. Oh man, all we ever want is LOVE, then why do we celebrate this for just one day.

Ah ! Well I am not the person to answer this; rather I should not be doing so. Valentine day is for the people who are in love, and I assume I am (at present) in love with this random hobby of writing. If I look at my blog stats I am celebrating it once in a week (for a novice, its fair enough).

Winters are always looked upon, thanks to poets, as a sad, rude, and blue, with cold emotions. Somehow I can relate to it. Long term illness (struggling with allergic dry cough for more than 70 days is tough, trust me !) and few unfavorable unexpected situations made me little unfocused and burn out this winters. I am tired and want to be back. This sadness and the feeling of despair is ruining me, need a break now.  I took a short break from writing, just to avoid spreading sadness. Though all this time I felt blessed with the love you have shown and bestowed me with positive energy. I love all the comments (on blog), they are fantastic. Thanks for your support.

Spring is the season of love, full of hopes, colors and youthfulness. It’s the perfect time to pull up my socks and wake up the ‘why not’ or ‘let’s do it’ side of me (I am so missing that).

 I am helping myself and have started doing the things I always love to do.

1.       Cooking

I am a foodie. Loves to cook, serve and eat. Due to cough was avoiding standing in kitchen and then scared with the very thought of doing the dishes with freezing water.This season, will experiment on some continental dishes.

 2.       Reading

Someone suggested few books , to help me find the answer to ‘who I am , what I am doing …. Bla bla ‘ . And Voila….Shantaram is in my hand , these days.

3.       Music

 Enrique Iglesias, I love you. I am listening all those sexy – dulicit tones again and again. As you Enrique say ‘I will survive’, I will.

4.       Dance

Wish to dance like a free bird and put my heart out. It’s soothing, relaxing and a great workout. ( I just don’t like gym environment). Who knows I may give Sheila, Munni , Chameli , Jalebi bai ,  a decent competition … LOL !!

I am a Punjabi , bring it on those racing heartbeats,  dhol beats , give me some adrenaline rush.

5.       Freak out

This is the February, the most happening month. I am going to enjoy all the romantic movies, going out for long walks, nice 🙂 dinners. You never know when cupid strikes? 😉

6.       Believe in my self and Love myself

Ah ! can’t help this , I am my favourite. A little madness in the spring is a wholesome goodness for this fair maiden!!!!
Let’s  see what this season holds for me .
 
What about you guys , what are your valentine day plans 😉  !!

 

Love,

Saakshi

The pursuit of sadness

Have you ever experienced such a feeling that by each passing moment it feels like something is terribly missing? Something isn’t right. Have you ever faced this miserable –sinful feeling that everyone around you is in a situation just because of you.

I am in such a phase for the past few days. I know I am committing a crime. It’s only my musing power that has gone beyond its acceptable limit and is the culprit of my pitiful condition.  I prefer to remain silent, full of self guilt, confused, in a state of emptiness, hopelessness.. ..Simply sad (you can imagine any bollywood movie scene) losing my beautiful life’s battle to my worries and fear. It’s so easy to fall into feelings of despair.

 Why am I like this…One day I am so cheerful and happy like a sunshine, the other day sad, crying, despair  ? (cut short chinta mani)

Sadness and happiness are two relative words (oh come on everybody knows this, what’s new?) .We , homosapiens!  Always try to protect ourselves from sadness, run away from the things that have the potential to hit back at us, make us feel as if we are powerless to change these circumstances.  It’s an irony; we worry and fear for things that make us happy. We remain in doubt whether they will happen. Why don’t we simply make them happen? 

It’s our time, It’s our life, we can do what we like, for the price of a smile, why do we cry?

You cannot protect yourself from sadness without protecting yourself from happiness.”

I love drama. I am in love with life and have full of emotions. I am a genius of sadness, can immerse myself deeply into it, can separate numerous strands. I am a prism through which sadness could be divided into its infinite spectrum. I am sad; at times I am like this.

Am I sad? Am I in pain? Yes I am. I should be rather grateful, I feel alive . Else , its just work all day, moving from one task to the other . I should be happy, I am alive as a human not a machine. I got a reason to celebrate myself and take a break.

Life is a perfect balance. (Thee has designed it like this way, and how come He can go wrong!) There are two beams which depict two phases of our life in a cyclic way. At a given point of time, only one is heavier.

As per my observations (I haven’t lived even half of average life boosted by experts) One beam is for feelings of joy, confidence, strong self esteem and feeling on cloud 9. Another beam is for despair, a lack of finding meaning/answer/purpose of life. Sometimes walking back home I realize how miraculous is the feeling of being alive and blessed with what a wonderful gift –Life , the most undefined , unwritten , unpredicted and  unknown. There are days when the same path let me wonder about the disasters in an instant ! Money, health, relationships, friends everything (surprisingly, they all go off track together) act like a black hole; pulling me to their indefinite depth and making me lost to nowhere.

In midst of such circumstances we curse God, ‘where is HE  while all this is happening to me? ‘ How many of us have actually got the answer ? The same beautiful, precious Life seems to be a brutal struggle.

There is one more characteristic of Life – it’s uncertain. We often tend to forget this. It’s our mistake not His.

Sometimes we do not achieve what we set out to do, or something we have had or achieved is taken from us. When the world about us changes, particularly if it is sudden or dramatic, we must adapt to everything. The world is then not what we thought. We are not what we thought we were.. The old picture has been taken away, the old world we knew  that gave us comfort is gone, there is no choice but to form a new world, a new picture of how we think things are.

 

Stay Happy , keep smilling 🙂

Saakshi

PS :  “Don’t be ashamed to weep; ’tis right to grieve. Tears are only water, and flowers, trees, and fruit cannot grow without water. But there must be sunlight also. A wounded heart will heal in time, and when it does, the memory and love of our lost ones is sealed inside to comfort us.”

Anger is one short of Danger

To ‘ one’  world, I am better known as rude, harsh, cold, stubborn, hard headed, short tempered snobbish lady. For them, may be, I am. Frustrations, anger and irritations are the demons, which surround me (not sure, us) and haunt me (At least, yes, to me) time to time.

Once upon a time on one fine day, which was not like just another day , I was suffering from anger , due to some unexpected conversations with a  good (I mean it) friend. I realized, somehow, through the screaming in my mind, that even in midst of such sentimental attack;  I was still free ; free to hate the things that hurt me;  free to disconnect the phone and acknowledge my anger;  free to louder the music (free – for the matter of fact my neighbors are out for holidays)  and just dance like a emotion-free , stress-free, tiredness-free mad girl. I am still free to hate the moments that were torturing me, or to forgive me.

It doesn’t sound like much!

I know.

But in the flinch and bite of the solitude (hate to call, loneliness) , (self) locked in the confines of a small room , echoes of highway midnight traffic , what’s all I have got is freedom. I read this somewhere; freedom is like, universe of possibilities.

I am not that kind of person who can talk at length about negativity (they give me a sick feeling). Rather, I am the kind of person who in spite being red hot in anger will think of possibilities to come out with a little more than the wiser and calmer me, there should be (has to be) some gain out of it.

If you search on anger management on internet, you will find a very long list of remedies. Drinking lots of water, meditation, taking a nap, talking/yelling to/at a friend, maintain a silence, count till ten, deep breathes etc etc. Perhaps they may work or even may not, like in my case, nothing like this, I believe one has to find out the fixtures on their own (they depend person to person, affinity to affinity).

Below are the remedies for anger control, which I follow.

( Note: Please don’t blindly follow them, think before you do.)

1.       Dance

Take away points – Burn calories, Toned body , major stress relief for calmer and focused me.

Losing points – You can try this if and only if you are at home and music volume should be convenient to neighbors.

2.       Walk to the nearest mall.

Take away points – Everybody knows the benefits of walking. I mention walking to the nearest mall for those who are shopaholics. Every time I visit any shopping mall, I get to listen Enrique Iglesias (hearing him is always soothing).

Losing points – Keep the minimum amount of cash with you and please leave cards at home.

3.       Shop

The moment you have read the word ‘shop’ you have imagined yourself with bags full of clothes, footwear, accessories etc. Stop those imaginary horses there only. When in anger, you have have to shop smarty. Otherwise your pockets/credit card bills will make sure to provide you another shot of anger.

Take away points – Shop for groceries , bed linens , books , music…chances are there would be little wastage and they will be in use for long. For bed linen, I can anytime gift them.

Losing Points – If the anger meter is at alarming rate, skip shopping and enjoy movie.

 

4.       Write

Take away points – Twitter , Facebook , Blogs, Personal documents describe a groundbreaker and game changer. I can never let myself down.

Losing Points – In anger or in whatever scenario, don’t ever, disrespect/abuse/spread bad word for the cause of anger. Every coin has two sides, respect that.

 

5.       Interact

Take away points –I Interact to enrich my social network of peers, colleagues, even my competitors. My willingness to listen and learn (Running away from the reason, why I am so upset) from all the people I interact, help me to be a better person.

Losing Points – Mind your words and tone.

 

Earlier in my teenage and early 20 days (again, guessing my age !! bad idea) I used to break things, at times yell in a screaming-itchy-irky  tone and have a compulsive eating disorder. With anger I was in danger.

Now, with a bit of life experience and a blessed happening life (frequent in –out) I have learnt this in a hard way that anger is one short of danger. And I am happy to announce I have found my , one short.

 

Keep Cool,

Saakshi

Thank you Thanksgiving Day !

Google must be having loads of credits for millions of professionals as a major reason behind them.

4. Books

How can someone on this Earth hate books?  They are my companion. They let me think, listen the mind and soul of the author/character. The characters and incidents usually stay alive, days after I finish any book.

I am a weekly passenger (travel back home every weekend, 225 kms , one way ) a book , music and a big pack of wafers are must for me. So you will find a book always in my bag and some e-books on my office computer.

Thank you books you  keep me going.

5. Enrique Iglesias

I love Enrique Iglesias, since I was in Class 8. Thank you Enrique for making me study and pass my board exams. You always help me out from my mood swings. Your songs have that secret spark to ignite up my mood and bring a long smile on my face, during any course of a day.

Thanks for giving those natural, spanish, damn sexy, dulcit tones that makes me feel more in love.

Thanks  all of you  for spending some time and reading it.

Thank you  Thanksgiving Day for giving me an opportunity to thanks everyone for molding me the way I am and I want.

Happy Thanksgiving.

This is me ….

As a member of Toastmaster club , to complete Competent Communication Certification I have to do 10 projects for Public Speaking.

Below is my first project – Icebreaker . (To introduce myself to the club).

Here it goes ….

THIS IS ME ….

I am rough enough to resist the life’s friction yet polished enough to make my name my way.

This is the way I define myself. Independent. Passionate. Dreamy. Bubbly. Thoughtful. The other side REBELLIOUS.

What started as a fun and a strong urge to start something new in life, slowly and steadily has become a passion now. A year back it was by an emotionally forced moment that I got involved in writing, trying to pack my affection and regards warmly on thank you note.

Gradually the idea to share my thoughts and viewpoints started surfacing. Not very confident of my new developed taste, I began as a novice micro blogger through social networking sites and SMS’es. As a matter of surprise, my friends like the style and motivate me to go further. Thus started my journey, on the route of, self discovery and inner soulful expression in the form of writing.

Good Afternoon …….

Let me take you back from my new passion and try to introducing myself. Hi I am Saakshi , and it spells  S-A-A-K-S-H-I

From last week I feel writing BRDs , Service Manuals ,Test Cases etc or writing errands are much easy rather that learning about oneself and explaining to others .

Well , I will try my level best.

Born in ‘Chandigarh’, bought up in ‘Karnal’ ,I have been successfully into a FOUR year-long committed and live–in relationship with Bachelors of Engineering at  ‘Kurukshetra University’. I won the legal separation and was awarded the Hons. Degree. Three and a half-year back I was transferred to ‘New Delhi’ to start my career. Have felt this wonderful city to be more close to my heart than my hometown.

Photography and trying new eating junctions was always the most enthused hobby, however exposure to wide variety of books, meeting people all over world , thanks to client base and membership to various Webmaster Forums are latest to join the hobby list.

You must be wondering why I emphasized on spellings of my name , especially when it’s so common. When I was born I was named Sakshi ; with single A. There is a small story behind it .

In CBSE affiliated schools we have to fill application form for Class X board examinations in Class IX, where we have to enter our details, such as name , father’s name , date of birth which will be printed on our passing certificate. I made an instant decision to add an additional A , making it S-A-A-K-S-H-I.

There were 3 major reasons behind it.

First , with an additional A , my attendance roll call was now ahead of 10 students.It was an achievement, I jumped from no 45 to no 33.

Second, it irritates me when people call me Sh-akshi . So now I can correct them its Sa-akshi.

Third, this was my first act to mark my own unique identity. Put my name on Google search page, you will find only my accounts till page no 5!!.

Life up till now has been a treat and full of serendipities. Being one of the brightest students and the head girl of my school , I have also faced embarrassing record of re-appearing in Semester I Mathematics exam 3 times and at last clearing it with precious ‘40’ passing marks in final year. I was placed during on campus recruitment for big shots like HCL and Steria just to wait for their cancellation mails due to 2008 recession. It was the era of depression and the ray of hope come from final year results. I topped my department at second position.

Being a typical Scorpion, I am always fascinated with anything that goes around and love to be independent. I am not a social butterfly (I just somehow manage my online presence) I  prefer to do things on my own , just to explore what’s next in life . And if one is living alone for last 8 years, then it all becomes a habit.

As it’s said, change is the only constant thing.

From an extrovert kid to an introvert teenager and now an enthusiast professional, life is all about executing the change and surviving for the fittest.

There is a stubborn side of me also, that refuses to change. Few things that haven’t changed from last15 yrs as far as I remember.

My addiction for Maggie.

My craziness for Enrique’s songs.

My miserable condition by the very thought of failure.

My fear of dogs and rodents.

and My weird habit of wearing wrist watch while sleeping.

To conclude myself ,you may call me , a young lady , who longs for peace , loves her independence , with a  habit of living life on a higher note , who is a true blue crazy fan of Enrique Iglesias.

As they believe your work is your identification. I am a Business Analyst by profession and our Toastmasters  clubs Vice President Public Relation Officer.

 

“It’s never too late to be what you might have been”

 

Note : Hey , don’t be taken by each and every detail , few incidents are fabricated for  some spicy treat. After all woman is all about mystery !!


My love for music and Enrique Iglesias

Enrique Iglesias_0714

You can run you can hide , but you can’t escape  ..love for music..

During my Class 12 boards , I got this habit of studying all night with several cups of coffee and music !!. Music helped me in concentration and keeping me awake.

This was the time , I was all crazy about Enrique Iglesias.Today , 8 years later , I am now a working woman (thankfuly, not a crazy teenager) but I still love Enrique and true blue fan of him.

The album – Enrique and Escape are still my fav albums.

What could be the best – I started learning Spanish , but dropped the idea due to time crunch (ah! the stupidest excuse).
