Songs for that Indescribable Heart So Full Springtime Feeling

That isn’t a good description, because it isn’t describable! But I’m having one of those weeks that tend to come in the spring when I keep feeling out of tune with the world and as though something wonderful is almost about to happen but not yet.

Discussion Post (Because No One is Commenting and I Have Writer’s Block): What Do You Think is the Best All Time Indian Film Soundtrack Album?

I was all set for people to get angry with me for my Hindi Film 101 on class and Kangana, and nothing. And not really any comments on my Super Deluxe review either (if someone wants to link back to it from the Bardwaj review page as an example of a review that is critical of the film, that would be great). Anyway, when the comments drop down, so does my ability to think abstractly and intelligently and I end up putting up stupid posts like this in an attempt to get a response from the void.

I’m So Cold!!!! How About Some Hot Songs to Warm Me Up?

Long story short, still no dog! But I got to spend a fun 10 hours driving literally all over the city to church, the pound, a series of adoption events, and finally the movie. And then milk on the way home. But because I was planning on getting a dog, I dressed up for the dog, and it is way WAY too cold for a dress today. And now I am still completely freezing even after being home for 20 minutes. So, time to pull out some hot songs to warm me up!

20 Shahrukh Songs Outside the Standard List

I’m really sleepy. The whole “getting up at dawn to get my car fixed” yesterday really wore me out. And I’ve been sleeping weird because I still don’t have a dog (another post on that today! Fun fun! For my doggie subset of readers). Anyway, get ready for me to be lazy and give the people what they want. As Neha Dhupia says, “Only Sex and SRK sell”.

Everyone is Talking At Me At Work! Here is a Post of “Lower Your Blood Pressure” Songs

I’m the customer support supervisor at work, which means I get my own office and a window (oooo!), but also I get to take the really complicated phone calls. And it has not been a good day for phone calls. Or maybe, it has been a good day for phone calls? What I am saying is, I have been on the phone straight through for the past 5 hours and it is beginning to get a bit stressy. I’m supposed to also do a bunch of really urgent work things, and I’d like to actually respond to your comments on the blog, plus personal emails and stuff, but that’s not going to happen today. Also lunch, lunch is not going to happen. I’ve been trying to eat an apple for 5 hours, and I’m still only two bites in.

Wednesday Watching Post: What Are You Reading and Thinking and Watching and Listening This Week?

Happy Wednesday! I’m trying something new this week, this is supposed to be the post where we share things that don’t fit in anywhere else, and it just occurred to me that I should have a “listening” section for the songs you are enjoying right now.

Happy Songs Post! I Guarantee At Least One Of These Will Make You Smile, No Matter What is Happening

It’s been overcast all day today here, and I am facing down a very long and difficult weekend, so I need things to smile about!  If you also need things to smile about, I highly recommend this post.  At least one, if not many, of these songs will make you smile.

Hindi Film 101: The 6 Kinds of Film Songs

Procrastinatrix just mentioned a helpful post I wrote on this, and I looked and looked and I don’t think it was a post, I think it was actually in my book.  So if I were mean, I would make this headline and then the post would just be “ha ha, buy my book!”  But now I kind of want to write the post!  And it will be better than the book (although you should still buy the book) because I can use video link examples.

Light Post: Let’s Recommend Songs to Each Other!

Filmilibrarian just said in a comment that she was trying to get back to listening to more music, and we had a nice exchange about the songs we like.  And since I just put up my Ali Zafar post and need something to decompress with, and something to make us all a community even if we disagree, I thought it might be nice to have a little friendly “lets all enjoy stuff together” post.

Happy Summer Solstice/My Aunt Bernice’s Birthday!

Never actually met Aunt Bernice, she was my great-great-aunt, but every summer solstice my grandmother would mention that it was also Aunt Bernice’s birthday and now that is burned into my brain, the two go together.  Pagan earth based sun rituals, and a spinster who worked for a mail order catalog company for 40 years.

Happy Spring Forward Day! Springy Songs! (The physical movement, not the season)

Nothing interesting in the news today (so desperate that outlets are falling back on the good old reliable Don 3 rumors), no birthdays, I already put up a review, so time to fall back on the oooooold reliable fill in, a theme song post!  But a fun theme this time (I hope), songs with people jumping around!
