We all have favorites not because they’re the best, but because somewhere, they struck a chord with us. This holds good for people, places, food, books, movies and most importantly music. If there ever was a song that made me forget myself and everything else around me, its this one. It may not be the greatest song ever composed. But when I listen to this song and close my eyes and sing along, I feel light. There’s this feeling of joy, that I can’t quite explain. Its almost like standing at the edge of a cliff on a perfect day with the wind blowing in your face. Your arms are stretched wide open and you feel life flowing through your fingers.
Actually, its like a perfect hug. The one that engulfs you while running a hand through your hair. A smile that’s buried in the other person’s chest and a kiss that speaks a thousand words.
PS: Apparently, James, the singer was stoned when this song was recorded. No wonder 🙂
