Singing the heart out

As much as i relish being in the spotlight, the introvert within me still finds it extremely hard to build up that confidence. A million incoherent thoughts race through my head and the reality manages to fade to the backdrop. Life doesn’t pause. I wish it did. It only hastens. The time to perform comes faster by the minute. The moment of truth. The part where i cannot go wrong. Even after multiple flawless practices, the fears always manage to creep in.

Restlessly, i stroll around. Finding one place to sit, before deciding on abandoning it for another. Paranoid about my stuffy nose making me sound weird, some intense runs to the bathroom take place. My face wouldn’t show a glimpse of the turmoil inside as i look at it in there. Good. Better in than out. Couple of deep breaths, a sip of water to ease my rusty aching throat, and a few steps later, i find myself in front of them all. I had this little speech prepared in my head about the amazing singers of these songs. But it was drowned out as soon as my mouth opened. As i tried to figure out the first words, my hands went on autopilot, forcing me to keep up with their frantic pace.

Aadat

I rarely have such moments of pure bliss when the inner soul manifests itself so harmoniously.

One of my favourite songs. Hope it sounds half as good to you as it does to me 🙂

Always happy to receive comments, as usual.

Soch Na Sake

Soch Na Sake (Airlift) – Arijit Singh

After listening to the horrible singing in the last song i sang again and again, i was pretty sure i will never upload another monstrosity. Somehow i felt that this one, even through its share of mistakes, was not another aberration. 😅

I hope you enjoy. And i hope i get better at this.

 

Main Rahoon Ya Na Rahoon

I started learning how to play the guitar last summer. I know i am not particular good at that. Or Singing, for that matter. But i like to do this. Probably the first of many such amateur renditions. Enjoy!

 

 

 

P.S. I am working on a lot of things like guitar skills, enunciation, better notes and a firmer voice. Should get better with time. It’s okay if you can’t go through the whole of it 😛
