Music on Repeat -1

I think everybody, every now and then, gets addicted to one or the other songs for days or weeks or even months. Currently, I am listening following songs on repeat and I am also posting their youtube URLs for reference to the version I am addicted to:

1. Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen 

Freddie Mercury, the greatest frontman of the Rock and Metal, and one of the greatest any of the music genres ever, mesmerises me with his voice, the lyrics, the music and the overall song pattern. I particularly like the way he gets into gear at 3:15 to sing the following lines:

“So you think you can stone me and spit in my eyes

so you think you can love me and leave me to die

I find this version much better than the studio version.

2. Rubberneckin’ by Elvis Presley

Who told you that rubbernecking is a bad habit? It is a philosophy as the King tells us, so musically and so eloquently, through this song of his.

Stop, look and listen baby, this song is addictive! Typical Rock and Roll and King’s melodious voice!

3. Kashmir by Led Zeppelin  

One of the best and most recognisable guitar riffs. This song of Led Zeppelin, for me, is better than their Stairway to Heaven! Simply love its lyrics and the music!

4. Comfortably Numb by Pink Floyd

Since I am comfortably numb now for rest of my life, this song is going to stay on repeat for rest of the life! Amazing song! Personal! Pink Floyd tells why they are one of the greatest rock bands!

5. Ob la di, Ob la da by Beatles

Life goes on brahh! A lovely song by my favourite band! Lyrics are so good and the music is just relaxing, calming and smooth! Listen the love story, of Desmond and Molly, unfolding!

6. Don’t Worry, be Happy by Bob Marley (with due respect to Bobby McFerrin) 

What a song! Though a much abused, misused and disused cliche “Don’t worry be happy” , this song put much needed soul to the cliche. Lovely song! “the landlord says your rent is late, he may have to litigate; don’t worry be happy”  I never had imagined a poetic use of the word – litigate.
