Magic In Tunes: 04/19/2015 – Telephone Dhwani La Navve Daanna / Telephone Dhun Mein Hasne Waali

From the 1996 Telugu action-thriller hit film Bharateeyudu that was originally made in Tamil as Indian and dubbed into Telugu and Hindi as Hindustani. When I first heard the song, it made me wonder why anyone would have a laugh like the ring of a telephone. The lines literally mean that “The one who laughs like the ring of a telephone”. Considering the period this film was made where landlines were more prevailing than cellphones, I would really wonder if any girl would want her laugh to sound like “Trring Trring” or “Ring Ring”. However, if we take the current era of cell phones, we can perhaps imagine that the guy has recorder her laughter for his ringtone and that probably makes sense. Interesting enough all three languages had the same line. Maybe one of my followers can unravel the mystery for me. :)

Music was composed by A. R. Rahman for this movie. Lyrics in Telugu were penned by Bhuvanachandra while the Hindi version was penned by P. K. Mishra. Here’s the Telugu version Sung by Hariharan and Harini.

Magic In Tunes: 04/20/2015 – Roar

One of the few songs of Katy Perry that I listen to on repeat mode, esp during my runs, is this from her 2013 album Prism, titled Roar. It just pumps energy into me and pushes me hard. And I have no idea why. :)



Lyrics in English:

I Used To Bite My Tongue And Hold My Breath
Scared To Rock The Boat And Make A Mess
So I Sat Quietly, Agree Politely
I Guess That I Forgot I Had A Choice
I Let You Push Me Past The Breaking Point
I Stood For Nothing, So I Fell For Everything

You Held Me Down, But I Got Up (HEY!)
Already Brushing Off The Dust
You Hear My Voice, You Hear That Sound
Like Thunder Gonna Shake The Ground
You Held Me Down, But I Got Up (HEY!)
Get Ready 'Cause I've Had Enough
I See It All, I See It Now

[Chorus:]
I Got The Eye Of The Tiger, A Fighter, Dancing Through The Fire
'Cause I Am A Champion And You're Gonna Hear Me Roar
Louder, Louder Than A Lion
'Cause I Am A Champion And You're Gonna Hear Me Roar
Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh
Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh
Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh
You're Gonna Hear Me Roar

Now I'm Floating Like A Butterfly
Stinging Like A Bee I Earned My Stripes
I Went From Zero, To My Own Hero

You Held Me Down, But I Got Up (HEY!)
Already Brushing Off The Dust
You Hear My Voice, You Hear That Sound
Like Thunder Gonna Shake The Ground
You Held Me Down, But I Got Up (HEY!)
Get Ready 'Cause I've Had Enough
I See It All, I See It Now

[Chorus:]
I Got The Eye Of The Tiger, A Fighter, Dancing Through The Fire
'Cause I Am A Champion And You're Gonna Hear Me Roar
Louder, Louder Than A Lion
'Cause I Am A Champion And You're Gonna Hear Me Roar
Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh
Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh
Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh
(You're Gonna Hear Me Roar)
Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh
Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh
(You'll Hear Me Roar)
Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh
You're Gonna Hear Me Roar...

Ro-Oar, Ro-Oar, Ro-Oar, Ro-Oar, Ro-Oar

I Got The Eye Of The Tiger, A Fighter, Dancing Through The Fire
'Cause I Am A Champion And You're Gonna Hear Me Roar
Louder, Louder Than A Lion
'Cause I Am A Champion And You're Gonna Hear Me Roar
Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh
Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh
Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh
(You're Gonna Hear Me Roar)
Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh
Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh
(You'll Hear Me Roar)
Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh
You're Gonna Hear Me Roar...
