Al Pacino and Gabrielle Anwar Tango ( Scent of a Woman)

30 Dec

I want to share this beautiful tango from the movie Scent of a Woman 🙂 The actors are beautiful and the song magic..

Dance Me to the End of Love : Leonard Cohen

Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin
Dance me through the panic ’til I’m gathered safely in
Lift me like an olive branch and be my homeward dove
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love

Oh let me see your beauty when the witnesses are gone
Let me feel you moving like they do in Babylon
Show me slowly what I only know the limits of
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love

Dance me to the wedding now, dance me on and on
Dance me very tenderly and dance me very long
We’re both of us beneath our love, we’re both of us above
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love

Dance me to the children who are asking to be born
Dance me through the curtains that our kisses have outworn
Raise a tent of shelter now, though every thread is torn
Dance me to the end of love

Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin
Dance me through the panic till I’m gathered safely in
Touch me with your naked hand or touch me with your glove
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love

Good night friends. Please see the song “let me see your beauty when the witnesses are gone, Let me feel you moving like they do in Babylon, Show me slowly what I only know the limits of… ” 🙂 This for the great actor Al Pacino and the beautiful Gabrielle Anwar. The year is coming to an end. Just one more day. Hope you a lovely day! Thank you!

Farooq Shaikh and Deepti Naval

29 Dec

I very much want to share this song of the beautiful actors Farooq shaikh and Deepti Naval. I do so in memory of winsome Farooq saab and memories of a bygone era when movies reflected innocence of love in a pure and simple way. May be its the middle class ethos of some of us, may be its those movies, but certainly the pristine magic of Farooq shaikh and Deepti naval 🙂 I dedicate this to my friend who still looks like Deepti Naval in this song 🙂

Although am saddened by passing away of a most wonderful actor, but such is the aura of man even in death, lives behind memories of innocence and grace . Please also see this interview of Farooq shaikh and Deepti Naval. I am going to see the movie ” Listen… Amaya”.

life wouldn’t have been same without those movies Farooq saab. I will miss watching you, farooq shaikh!!! Goodnight friends! This in memory of a fine actor. Hope you have a peaceful day! Thank you!

Farooq Shaikh

28 Dec

I want to share this song in memory of beautiful Indian actor Farooq shaikh. For my generation for whom color television was a novelty, the fresh faced actor, who was always subtle, nuanced in comedy or serious roles was a breath of fresh air. I remember an interview of super star comedian Mehmood saying to Farooq saab on television ” Aapki comedy tehzeeb ki hai, hamari toh chalu kism ki hai”. The great comedian was paying a fine tribute. ” Your comedy is subtle and cultured whilst mine is more slapstick..”. I love this song from 1982 movie Hindi movie ” Bazaar”. Intelligent, suave and cultured. Farooq Shaikh.

I loved Farooq shaikh. I also want to share a heart wrenching tribute by the wonderful and great actor Shabana Azmi

I share this for my friend and all of you. Good night friends. Farooq Shaikh!!! Fine, fine actor. Hope you have a nice day! We must love people when they are there, tribute are then a trifle late…

Thank you!

My lady friend..

27 Dec

My lady friend:

My friend got married

She has a new name

She was my best freind

Yeah she is a lady

 

I first met her

Decade and a year more

Told her ” You know have a sister at home your age”

She asked about my sister and confirmed same

She gave me a number and thought what a child

We became friends

Yeah she is a lady

 

She was pretty as a flower

What struck me was honesty and poise

She was keen to grow

She was keen to work

I looked at her as a child

As am wont to

I wished her well

We became friends

Yeah she is a lady

 

Few years rolled by

Girl  become a lady

She startled me with maturity

With her understanding and dignity

Little girl had come of age

Little girl had traveled globe

Pretty child a pretty woman

We became good friends

Yeah she is a lady

 

In my troubled phase

She would call and talk to me

Always thoughtful and dignified

She never forgot me

I learnt god lives

through woman and child

She became a best friend

Yeah she is a lady

 

I never asked her

Whom she is dating

She never asked me too

We spoke of families

We spoke of life

I just wanted her to be happy

She just wanted me to be well

She  my best friend

Yeah she is a lady

 

Today she is married

A part of  life has changed

A new fact and a new nomenclature

So look back in gratitude

What makes some people

come as angels in life

Life would have been

so difficult otherwise

She  my best friend

Yeah she is a lady

 

I learnt from the little angel

Gift of unconditional friendship

She made me realise

A girl and boy

A woman and man

Could be best friends

Earlier  life was a division

of ” sisters” or ” romantic interest”

She taught me gift of friendship

I owe it to her,

She  my best friend

Yeah she is a lady

 

She made life liveable

Always thoughtful and caring

So I wish my dear friend well

In her new chapter

The real one

May be will miss the phone call

May be will miss the unconditional support

She my best friend

Yeah she is a lady…

 

This is dedicated to my  friend, who taught me a man and a woman could be best of friends and am grateful to her long friendship. I realized god comes through a child and a woman. My bestest friend here is a man.I guess will stick to him, woman and children 🙂

Good night friends! Hope you have a lovely day! Thank you!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Quote

“Judge nothing…

26 Dec

“Judge nothing, you will be happy. Forgive everything, you will be happier. Love everything, you will be happiest.”

― Sri Chinmoy

I like this quote. Sometimes the message is more important than the master.  As Mother Teresa said ” If you judge people, you have no time to love them”. Good night friends! Hope you have a lovely day! Thank you!

I listened to three on the list and they are : Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band, “Santa Claus Is Coming To Town”, John Lennon, “Happy Xmas (War Is Over)” and Judy Garland, “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas”.

Santa Claus is comin’ to town:

You’d better watch out, you’d better not cry
You’d better not pout, I’m telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town
Santa Claus is coming to town
Santa Claus is coming to town

He’s making a list, he’s checkin’ it twice
He’s gonna find out whose daughter you’re nice
Santa Claus is coming to town
Santa Claus is coming to town
Santa Claus is coming to town

He sees you when you’re sleeping
He knows if you’re awake
He knows if you’ve been bad or good
(so you’d) better be good for goodness sake
Better be good for goodness sake

You’d better watch out, you’d better not cry
You’d better not pout, I’m telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town
Santa Claus is coming to town

Better be good for goodness sake

You’d better watch out, you’d better not cry
You’d better not pout, I’m telling you why

Happy Xmas (War Is Over) :

So, this is Christmas
And what have you done?
Another year over
And a new one just begun

And so this is Christmas
I hope you have fun
The near and the dear one
The old and the young

A very merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
Let’s hope it’s a good one
Without any fear

And so this is Christmas
For weak and for strong
For rich and the poor ones
The road is so long

And so happy Christmas
For black and for white
For yellow and red ones
Let’s stop all the fight

A very merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
Let’s hope it’s a good one
Without any fear

And so this is Christmas
And what have we done
Another year over
And a new one just begun

And so happy Christmas
We hope you have fun
The near and the dear one
The old and the young

A very merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
Let’s hope it’s a good one
Without any fear

War is over
If you want it
War is over
Now

Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas :

Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Let your heart be light
Next year all our troubles will be out of sight

Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Make the yule tide gay
Next year all our troubles will be miles away

Once again as in olden days
Happy golden days of yore
Faithful friends who were dear to us
Will be near to us once more

Someday soon, we all will be together
If the fates allow
Until then, we’ll have to muddle through somehow
So have yourself a merry little Christmas now

May you like all the 21 songs on the list dear friends and from the great John Lennon ” A very merry Christmas,
And a happy New Year, Let’s hope it’s a good one, Without any fear..”
And to my friend from the beautiful  Judy Garland  “Someday soon, we all will be together, If the fates allow,Until then, we’ll have to muddle through somehow,  So have yourself a merry little Christmas now…”
Please don’t miss the saxophone in the The Boss’s song 🙂
