"Araluthiru Jeevada Geleya...Snehadaa Sinchanadalli..." (Blossom O Dear Friend...In The Sprinkle Of Friendship)
Shreya Goshal has been singing this song for more than a hundred times at least, in my ipod from the past few weeks. I am simply in love with this song. Easily the best song from "Mungaaru MaLe". Perfect song for a morning travel. I don't like Shreya Goshal in general (she reminds me of Aishwarya Rai!) but the way she has sung this song is divine. Jayanth Kaaykini's lyrics is superb (when was the last time I heard a song with good lyrics?) and the orchestrization is amazing (guitars, drums and sax used very intelligently) Many of the guys whom I talked to have agreed this was the best song from "Mungaaru MaLe".
But, I was surprised to know that an overwhelmingly higher percentage of girls liked the Sonu Nigam version of the same song "Anisuthide". I just asked myself "What would Freud say?" (the new slogan I have written on the marker board of my cubicle :D) May be Freud would have said that guys always have a tendency of loving the female versions of the song and the girls love imagining some male saying nice things to them. Girls would love the feeling of a male telling them "Kollu hudugi omme nannaa...haage summane" (Kill me once, aye girl...just like that) And guys love being told "Beda geLeya nantige hesaru...yaake summane" (Why have a name for this relationship?) [This does not suggest that guys do not like commitment ;)]
Then, what about the male versions of the song that impresses the guys and vice versa? Simple! Guys imagine saying such things to girls that gives them a sense of worth. Girls relate to the female versions of a song that gives them a sense of loving and being loved. Hey, you can easily interpret anything the way you want, right?
Note : This is what happens when you listen to the same song for over a hundred times and start reading about Freud at 3.00 AM on a sunday morning.
P.S : Forgive me for the pathetic translations.
