November Rain.. a song that everyone likes (or has a memory connected to it)..atleast I haven’t met a person who hasn’t proclaimed love for this song / smiled at the song & when asked for the reason for the smile, they give an elusive 'its a secret' look. Even the people who do not have an inclination to rock music have said that they can listen to this (looooonnng) song anytime.
Confession time..i don’t like the song..it isn’t that I haven’t tried.. the guitar, lyrics, video..all are good but somehow I still can’t bring myself to like the song..though I have had discussions in which I have claimed that I really like this GnR number. However, it was all a lie (well, yes I do lie & iam dabbang enough to accept it).
In order to connect to this song, I have decided to start making a list called the ‘ November Rain List’ It shall include all things that I wish I liked coz everybody seems to love them. Well, I can already think of a couple of the things that belong to this list.
F1 : It’s the biggest confession of all .. i am not fond of Formula 1. There i said it. I love cricket (yes, I am a true Indian), I like soccer, I can watch tennis, badminton, all other sports, games, et all..but somehow the whole excitement about F1 leaves me baffled. Well, I do know a bit about F1 ( till its about Schumacher..he’s the only F1 guy I can remember right now) thanks to my friends, news, twitter, facebook. I know that Iam not alone who isn’t a fan of the sport. I certainly have met people who pretend that they watch every race but the one which is being discussed at the given point.
I hope people would stop asking me about my reaction to the last race or my prediction for the next race (atleast after reading this post).
Reading motivational books : All the Deepak Chopra s of the world could not make me read this genre. Trust me, many have tried..I can read a fiction (have read some in record time), history, biographies (ok,I haven’t read many..just a couple of them),anything & everything..but somehow, I am not able to read the books by so called ‘motivational gurus’. I now they are well researched, inspirational, attention grabbing (supposedly) books..but somehow their aura has always eluded me. I read them whenever I feel insomniac..and the effect of such a book on me is much better than counting sheep.
I am happy that I atleast started this list (will keep on adding stuff). Now, whenever I will hear this song, I too will have something to smile about.
