It’s happened to all of us, hasn’t it? Someone sings a few lines from THAT song you’ll have stuck in your head all day long. Sometimes – most of the time – it probably isn’t even a song you like! For me, it’s a new Tamil song that has went viral in YouTube called “Why This Kolaveri Di?” – which means “Why this murderous rage, girl?” It’s written in a Tanglish, which is mostly English sung with a heavy Tamilian accent – i.e. ending every English word with an ‘uu’ sound. It was sent to me by my fiancé, who is Indian, and now if I’m not playing the damn song, I’m singing it over and over. I think the songwriter, a Tamil actor called Dhanush (who also performs the song) was a genius in writing it – the lyrics are catchy and simple, even the Tamil words. I’m hooked and apparently so are the 19.5 million other people who have watched this bloody thing on repeat!
Check it out. Curse me later.
