Constellations is a Chilling Song


I love this Jack Johnson’s “Constellation.” The lyrics are beautiful and it’s damn chilling when I listen to the sounds. My mood changes. It has a poetic feelings. It’s like calm, cherishing feelings of those little moments you spend just watching the sunset and looking at the stars. The lyric has such deep meanings…it seems like he sure knows life and how to live life, the gift of life, and the real beauty in life.  His other songs like “If I Could,” “Breakdown,” are songs must listen.

It is amazing how "we drew our own constellations." It resembles the phrase "drawing conclusions"…drawing to an end. This song is amazing, just like every other song by Jack.

And another line, 'listen close enough all else fades... fades away.' It sounds damn chilling to our lives. And it’s true.

The song helps me to bring and build beautiful memories of my child, family, and times.





Jack Johnson is a Hawaiian-folk singer-songwriter. He is a soft rocker, surfer and filmmaker.  

And I would like to leave here with my favorite song, Constellations.




"Constellations"

The light was leaving
In the west it was blue
The children's laughter sang
And skipping just like the stones they threw
Their voices echoed across the way
It's getting late

It was just another night
With a sunset
And a moonrise not so far behind
To give us just enough light
To lay down underneath the stars
Listen to papa's translations
Of the stories across the sky
We drew our own constellations

The west winds often last too long
The wind may calm down
Nothing ever feels the same
Sheltered under the Kamani tree
Waiting for the passing rain
Clouds keep moving to uncover the scene
Stars above us chasing the day away
To find the stories that we sometimes need
Listen close enough
All else fades, fades away

It was just another night
With a sunset
And a moonrise not so far behind
To give us just enough light
To lay down underneath the stars
Listen to all the translations
Of the stories across the sky
We drew our own constellations.

A Song to be Noted



I like this song ‘Complain’ from the film Bob Roberts lyrics, The Vandals. I am reproducing here in my blog. I have been busy these days and didn’t get time to write.  

Some people must have.
Some people have not.
But they’ll complain and complain and complain and complain and complain.

Some people will work.
Some simply will not.
But they’ll complain and complain and complain and complain and complain.

Like this: It’s society’s fault I don’t have a job.
It’s society’s fault I am a slob.
I have potential no one can see.
Give me welfare. Let me be me!

Hey, Bud, you’re livin’ in the Land of the Free.
No one’s gonna hand you opportunity!

Some people must have.
Some never will.
But they’ll complain and complain and complain and complain and complain.

I don’t have a house. I don’t have a car.
I spend all my money getting’ drunk in a bar.
I wanna be rich. I don’t have a brain.
Just give me a handout while I complain.

Or this: I wanna stay in bed and watch TV.
Go out weekends in a limousine
And dance all night takin’ lots of drugs
And wake up when I wanna.

Hey, Bud, you’re livin’ in the Land of the Free.
No one’s gonna hand you opportunity!

Some people will learn.
Some never do.
But they’ll complain and complain and complain and complain and complain.
Yeah, they’ll complain and complain and complain and complain and complain.

Songing Heart


The best music touches deep into our heart. And it keeps alive, and kicking the life away despite sorrows and depressions beneath.

I love blue music, a real blues songs, a kind of sentimental and jazz, a pure kind of music, no such hip-hop, big-bang, or sharp pop. I am a pure, a simply a guy, who came from “Aamo Chi lay” backdrop. But to be frank, Bhutanese music didn’t fascinate me till recently. I was a die-hard fan of English music. And radio was the main source of music at those times- in the1990s. I knew all timings of radio shows, like BBS, AIR, VOI, BBC, Shillong broadcast, and others. Shortly, my brother gave me his tape-recorder that made me to buy as many as cassettes and listen as long as the batteries last. So I have listened to almost all songs of English, like Beatles, in which “Let It Be,” is one of my favorites, Eagles’ “Love will Keep us Alive,” George Michael’s “Careless Whisper,” Bryan Adams, Police, CelineDion, Spice Girls, Mariah Carey, Stevie Wonder’s “I Just Call to Say…,” Josh Groban’s “You Raise Me Up,”  Elton John, Savage Garden, Ronan Keating, Backstreet boys, etc are some of my favorites- to name a few.  

 I also love singing. I used to pick up my bass guitar and rock on the stage, most of the time unprepared. I vividly remember singing the song, “Tears in Heaven,” for my late brother, Sonam, “If Tomorrow Never Comes,” and others. But now, I sing in the toilet; nobody would listen to a husky old voice these days.

It's ME, singing "If Tomorrow Never Comes." Tomorrow comes if you believe...

I remember, the first album I bought was of Modern Talking, and their songs keep me still high and alive today. This German duo is my favorite. The songs like “You Can Win If You Want,” “ You're My Heart, You're My Soul,” “Cheri Cheri Lady,” “ Brother Louie,” and “Give me Piece of Love,” still keep me mesmerize and humming. They are the best songs I ever have in my life. The song “You Can Win If You Want” keeps me moving forward in my life. I think this song is the story about our life, the journey we make where nobody knows. Try listening to them. They are the best, though it’s a little bit of synthpop type, but it’s worthwhile and melodious to listen. It teaches so many good things of life. Empathy, love, care; quite a heart rendering songs. I often listen now and cry out remembering about my days.
