Song Lyrics – #SoCS

This week’s #SoCS prompt is to find a picture and then perform a task.

  1. Find a picture, the closest one to you.
  2. The prompt is the title and/or lyrics of the first song that comes to mind when you look at the picture.

This was quite an interesting prompt. Instead of choosing a picture that’s close to my heart, I chose the one that was physically near me. I was charging my camera beside my PC. The first picture that appeared in it was that of my laptop, which I shared in yesterday’s post.

On looking at the picture, the first song that crossed my mind is “Oh Maria” from a Tamil movie “Kaadhalar Dhinam” (translated to Valentine’s day).

The song was quite special during the days of its release, because of the contemporary historical and economic reasons. Internet services were available in India since 1986. But then, they were restricted to educational and research communities. Only since 15th August 1995, the 49th Independence day of the nation, the internet was launched for public usage.

This song, which was released in 1999, embarked on the rise of romance in the new internet era. The music composed by AR Rahman is so vibrant until the present date.

The film has been dubbed in Hindi (Dil Hi Dil Mein in the year 2000) and Telugu. I’ve heard this song in both Tamil and Hindi versions, and the Tamil one sounds more appealing to me.

The song has quite a lot of English words. So, even if you couldn’t understand the local language, the lyrics will make sense. I’ve shared the YouTube links of the song below – videos and transliterated lyrics. Do check them out and share your thoughts.

Cheers!
