Tagged again! (this time inspirationally)

Posted by shiwuz on July 18, 2008

Nikhil had tagged me long time ago, but it was now that I was just reading through my comments and I realized that I had been tagged! I was a little inadvertent to tags, not because of any disinterest towards them, but because of ignorance about the whole idea of tagging!

To me it just means that someone trusts that I may come up with something at least readable to (maybe) conform their expectations from me!

Sorry Nik, again I’ve no excuses for the very late outcome of your kind effort to invoke the inspiration in me. But I believe you believe that its ‘better late then never!’

So I am inspirationally tagged! What’s my inspiration? Hmm, interesting question.

But before that, is there just one inspiration that a writer or poet could have? Inspiration – its debatable if all inspirations are real or fictitious.

Here, I have to mention a SONG that inspires me, but there are different facets to that as well, which add to my spontaneously accomplished state of confusion. I know a few songs that do, but is it the music, is it the lyrics, is it the rhythm, is it the voice of the artist? What is in that song that inspires me?

I had to think a bit… and I came up with a few…

But before that, I will mention the one I decided has it all…

“Tom’s Diner” by Suzanne Vega

I have no explanation of course, or no justification, as to why I pick that one song.

There is something about it, undoubtedly!

Few other I like are:

A new day has come

Careless Whispers


Ae Ajnabi

Purani Jeans

Tanha Dil

I know, this may overwrite the rules of the tag, of ONE SONG, but there are always lee ways and exceptions… and then I can’t be disloyal to these other songs that inspire me either!

And I have to pass it on to 5 people, now that’s the toughest part!

Okay I at last managed… Here goes my tag… Rajesh, Viral, Sea Of Memories, Deeps, Rahul
