It was this same day last year. The 14th of february , yup the valentines day. The roses in the flower shops were little too proud that day as those little bastards decided the fate for many and the early morning couples entering the beach holding hands constantly raised the temper of the regular single joggers. Love traffic was too much that day. The whole morning was filled with love all over but I couldn’t see all that because I woke up only at noon , that too after my mother’s master technique of switching off the fan. As I began to explain her that it was a sunday, she explained to me that iam taking everyday as a sunday. I could have talked back but i didnt because I felt she was ready with more points and so I felt it was time to accept my defeat.
After some time , I logged on to facebook only to know that it was valentines day and people have already started posting with #bae hashtags from midnight and it made me instantly sad but thanks to some anti valentines day memes from my fellow single army. I wanted to check about the valentines day ‘culture’ so i decided to google it. Read the word ‘culture’ again. As I began to read all the posts suddenly a completely contrast one to the topic showed up. It read ‘Coldplay misrepresents indian culture’. I went in leaving my lazy mind to read it and came to know that it was about a song called ‘Hymn for the weekend’ and I directly youtubed it. As I started to listen to it , I didn’t know that this song is going to mean so much to me. I instantly liked it and disliked all the comments against culture and other stupid things. I felt it was just a song and it was great.
Days passed and I just began to realise that I was way too much addicted to it , like I have never been addicted this much to a song. There were days where all I did was just listen to the song again and again and I even felt that it was time to stop this habit and move on to the next happening song but it never leaved me. To talk like a F.R.I.E.N.D.S fan I was addicted to that song like how ross was addicted to marriages , how joey was addicted to food and how chandler was addicted to sarcasm and ofcourse to monica too. I even began to think like why iam this much addicted to a song. Like, is it the lyrics or is it the music or is it the video or is it just because it was coldplay but I have never come out with results. Its just that there’s a song for everyone and this song is for me. I even learnt to play it finally after some constant notes stealing activities.
The other thing I personally like about this song is the circumstances I was in when I heard it. I was high with my friends and this song made perfect sense , I was at my lowest best in life and still it made perfect sense , I was lonely and it made sense and I was riding my bike pretending to be in a music video and it still made sense. I wonder often like who has even listened to this song more than me so that I will be given a grammy if there ever was for listening to a song this many times or maybe I could end up writing it in my professional skills area on my resume.
The only reason I wrote this blog was because today I just freaked out when my music was in shuffle mode and this song played up , like why this song. Another reason is I haven’t written anything for a long time 😉 I can end it by saying happy valentines day but since its my first blog for the year , Happy new year 2017 *Internet explorer mode on*
Me- the way chris martin sings is just
People – Stop it you boring idiot
