Indian Screw Up's Guide to the Best Old World Songs

By Tuesday, July 05, 2016

Okay, this is my third draft for a Monday post and I hope I am able to publish this. 

The first post was written on Saturday, which was a major rant about what's going on in the world right now. But 2,000 words later, I realized, I had gotten really serious with the issue, and I didn't feel like publishing it.

Then I started writing another post which started as a rant about my work, and then became a rant about interior designers, and I have no idea why. May be its because my room is under construction, and its been 2-freaking months.

Planning out homes is not as easy as you would want it to be, I would rather want a ready-to-live apartment. There is no better decor than plain white walls, mark my words.

Currently, I am listening to the Beatles, because that is what everyone should be listening to, all the time. So, I decided to share a playlist of my favourite old world songs. Now, I call them old world songs because they remind me of a completely different era.

1. The Beatles - Hey Jude

Do I even need to say something? 

For years, I have wondered which song by the Beatles is my favourite. There has been a close battle between Hey Jude and Here comes the Sun, and trust me, it was a very close battle, but I think Hey Jude wins, at least for 2016.

My favourite lines - And any time you feel the pain, hey Jude, refrain. Don't carry the world upon your shoulders

2. The Beatles - Here Comes the Sun 

There is something about the melody in this song, and the drum beats which makes me all giddy. I don't know why this one isn't as popular as others, because it definitely deserves to be. This is also one of the few songs composed by George Harrison.

My favourite lines - Little Darling, it's been a long cold lonely winter

3. Damien Rice - Amie

Okay, this is not exactly an old song, in fact, it is from 2002 but, this song has such an old-world vibe to it. The melody on the first chorus will transcend you to a different world and melt your heart, I mean it. I would go to Europe just to attend a Damien Rice concert.

My favourite lines - But, I am not a miracle and you're not a saint, just another soldier on the road to nowhere

4. Elvis Presley - Can't Help Falling in Love

I don't really like a lot of Elvis music, but this is just one of those classic songs that you just can't falling in love with

My favourite lines - Somethings are meant to be, take my hand, take my whole life too, for I can't help falling in love you

5 - The Patridge Family - I Think I Love You

Now, I heard this song on some show and it had such a strong hook that I was singing it rest of the day, and I finally had to download it. Listen to it at your own risk.

My favourite - I think I love you so what am I so afraid of? I'm afraid that I'm not sure of a love there is no cure for. 

Honestly, I am really loving that I decided to write here twice a week, it's sort of like a therapy for me, hope I can continue that.
