Magic In Tunes: 12/19/2015 - Wreck On The Highway

I had heard a few songs that had theme of a crash or an accident, but hadnt one that was so beautifully sung as done by Bruce Springsteen in this song. Its from his fifth album The River released in 1980.



Lyrics in English:

Last Night I Was Out Driving
Coming Home At The End Of The Working Day
I Was Riding Alone Through The Drizzling Rain
On A Deserted Stretch Of A County Two-Lane
When I Came Upon A Wreck On The Highway

There Was Blood And Glass All Over
And There Was Nobody There But Me
As The Rain Tumbled Down Hard And Cold
I Seen A Young Man Lying By The Side Of The Road
He Cried Mister, Won't You Help Me Please

An Ambulance Finally Came And Took Him To Riverside
I Watched As They Drove Him Away
And I Thought Of A Girlfriend Or A Young Wife
And A State Trooper Knocking In The Middle Of The Night
To Say Your Baby Died In A Wreck On The Highway

Sometimes I Sit Up In The Darkness
And I Watch My Baby As She Sleeps
Then I Climb In Bed And I Hold Her Tight
I Just Lay There Awake In The Middle Of The Night
Thinking 'Bout The Wreck On The Highway
Me

Magic In Tunes: 12/20/2015 - Sarigama Padanisa Raagam, Tvarapadutunnadi Magham

On this day my youngest cousin and the last one for our generation in the Devarashetty side of my family got married. I so wanted to be there but for various reasons could not make it. However, here's welcoming the new bride into the family and wishing both of them a wonderful happy life ahead together.

Weddings are a common theme in many Indian movies, so there is no shortage of wedding themed songs as well. Here is a fun melody from the 1996 hit Telugu musical film Pelli Sandadi ( = Wedding Ceremonies) that shows the enthusiasm of two families that want to wed this lovely couple and bind them all together for life. I hope the same happiness and enjoyment surrounded my cousin's wedding too. This song was Sung by S. P. Balausbrahmanyam, M. M. Keeravani and Chitra. Noneother than M. M. Keeravani composed the Music while Chandrabose penned the Lyrics.
