It’s been awhile since my last post, hasn’t it? Let’s just assume I’ve been a bit held up of late, both personally as well as professionally, which even involved shifting base across half the length of the country. To those who do not know, I recently moved from Bangalore to Bombay! Not that I’m any less busy now. And that is exactly why this particular post is less on originality and more cut-and-paste. Just to maintain continuity, in other words.
There’s this particular song that I have been listening to, so frequently these past few days. Multiple times a day. Totally mesmerised by it. It has got meaning! There’s something about that song and its lyrics that transports me from the past to the future and back to the present at speeds comparable to 299,792,458.5 metres/second, i.e., the speed of light (pardon me for trying to show off! Can’t stop myself, can I?)
The song is called Hold On by Sean Paul. Wikipedia has this to say about the song:
“Hold On is the third single from the Jamaican recording artist Sean Paul‘s fifth studio album Tomahawk Technique. It was written by Pierre “The Maven” Medor, Rico Love and Sean Paul Henriques and was produced by Pierre “The Maven” Medor, Rico Love. The song has charted in France. Hold On is widely associated with Usain Bolt in his endeavour to victory in the London 2012 Olympic Games in the 100m and 200m races. A Lyric music video to accompany the release of “Hold On” was first released onto YouTube on February 21, 2012 at a total length of four minutes and nine seconds.“
No wonder! This song has Usain Bolt associated with it! It sets your heart and mind racing at Bolt speed. It is an absolute privilege to share my birthday with one of the greatest athletes of our generation.
Also, here are the lyrics of the full song for those interested. I suggest you listen to this song and/or watch the video and you’ll know why I dedicated a post to it. So long guys. Signing off… Hope you have nice long weekend.
