The Bitch is Back

I don’t know why I woke up around four this morning with these words playing in my mind.

There are many songs that play in my head which remind of days gone by. And sometimes when I hear the songs on the radio, I can actually feel I can reach out and touch them. Some songs make me incredibly sad like Lobo’s ” Me and you and a dog named blue” or the Beatles’ soulful ” Yesterday”. I feel incredibly happy when I hear Cliff Richards’ ” Congratulations ” a song which invariably used to play on Radio Ceylon’s afternoon show especially on days when I came home with my report card.

Even though they may sound peurile, I find the songs of Abba unbelievably heart lifting. I love “Mama Mia,” “Nina” and those other songs. Similarly I feel happy when I hear “I’m leaving on a Jet Plane”. Simon & Garfunkel’s “Sounds of Silence” reminds me of the time I had tea with Ms. Eapen in her verandah by the sea. I was shocked that a school teacher could have such modern taste in music. I could go on and on with the moods various songs evoke – some which leave me close to tears while others that have me grinning from ear to ear. All songs have some association and I love listening to them chosen randomly by the RJ on the radio rather than putting on a CD myself.

So I wonder why this song was playing in my head…………..all day long. 


A granny who always sees the humour in life and tries to do things differently. When others make cupcakes, this granny makes banana fritters. When she’s not busy chasing her grandchildren who love making her run around, she indulges in her passions of reading, writing, meeting friends and watching movies. And somewhere between all this she enjoys travelling and cooking!
