The soundtrack of my life

A musical blog from the desk of K.C.G,

It is said that music can take you back. For the duration of a song, you are transported to someplace else completely. There are some songs though which can completely take you to a specific point in life. The songs may not be classics, but they formed the background music of your life.

While traveling to work, a song came up on the radio which i hadn’t heard for quite some time, the song was “Khoya Khoya Chand” by Babul Supriyo and Alka Yagnik, immediately my mind travelled back to 2nd PUC talents day. The memory of one particular moment just stuck out, relayed to me through the song. This caused me to remember other songs which put my mind in rewind. Listed below are some of them

  • “Its Rocking” from “Kya Love Story Hai” – Takes me to a guest house in Diamond District in Bangalore, summer 2007
  • “Heyy Babyy” from “Heyy Babyy” – Car ride from Marseille to Aix-En-Provence at 11 in the night in almost sub-zero temperatures. Diwali 2007
  • “Yun Hi Chala Chal” from “Swades” – NITK hostels, last day in college
  • “Beedi Jalaile” from “Omkara” – The song starts up and i am immediately in Gorakhpur in 45 degree heat, summer 2007
  • “Taraana Pyaar Kya” by Abbey – Cousins wedding
  • “Yeh kyaa ho gaya rama re” from “Kaante” – Outside central talkies in Mangalore with 4 friends after the movie show, 2002
  • “Nahin Saamne” from “Taal” – First day in Canara PU College

I am sure there are plenty more if i really try to remember, but hearing the song and suddenly getting back is a nice experience.

Anyone got any they want to share, use the comments.

Until Next Time,



  1. Well this article is like my feelings placed on paper.. thanks Karthik.. btw “Nahin Saamne” takes me to a typical Monsoon day in Roorkee.. taking deep breaths and trying to feel the soft breeze..
    Then i cant forget the effect of this song “Alvida” from the movie metro.. It takes me to the last Grad party we had in Roorkee. The whole batch was returning at 1 o clock from a restaurant and we decided to sing this song aloud.. šŸ™‚

  2. […] The Soundtrack of my life: Another of my favorite posts which didn’t get much love, especially since i felt this post […]
