My favourite romantic song

A romantic song…Oh boy, is this difficult! I’m a hopeless, incurable, true romantic at heart. I love all things romance, be it music or literature or art. To name one romantic song out of the hundreds of thousands I’ve heard in my lifetime sure is tough. But, I want to let my readers know these little things about me. Because after all, these little quirks and idiosyncrasies are the ones that matter most and bring people closer.

Since I have to choose, my favourite romantic song of the week is ‘A Year Without Rain’ by Selena Gomez and The Scene. It has been stuck in my head all day long. I’ve been humming it to myself quietly while travelling, which earned me a few weird looks from my relatives. But, no worries, these kinds of things happen to me all the time. (Guffaw)

I just love the melody of this song, and the meaning is crystal clear and to the point. Gomez doesn’t beat about the bush; she conveys the meaning with simple and succinct words. It’s about a person needing their love – their soulmate every day, by their side, desperately. The song is laced with love, wistful longing and yearning. Drought truly strikes true lovers when they are forced to stay apart. Some would say, needing someone this bad is pathetic, desperate, needy, clingy, awfully weak and dependent, spineless, loser-y. But that’s not the truth at all. Love is a co-dependent relationship. Needing someone you love in your life is not a sign of weakness or vulnerability. It doesn’t mean that the person can’t stand on their own two feet. It doesn’t take away from their strength. Needing someone in your life, someone who needs you as much as you need him/her is the greatest strength a person can possess. Love always makes a person stronger. Hardcore feminists may protest, saying that a woman doesn’t need a man to live. True, very true. Women don’t need men to lead their lives. But, they need men to love them, cherish them, shower them with all the care and attention in the world to make them feel like the special person they truly are. Men don’t help support women; men help a woman feel the most powerful emotion in the world – love. And even feminists will agree that without love, life is not awful, but a life lacking in love means a person deprived from true happiness. A feeling of being utterly complete. Everybody needs love in their life. Love is what we all need, and there’s nothing wrong or pathetic or weak in that. It’s a beautiful feeling, pure magic. And everyone deserves to experience it.

Love doesn’t always have to be romantic love – it can be filial or parental or familial love as well. Any kind of love. But, a person who doesn’t have love is the unhappiest man on earth.

So, my advice? Spread love. Tell your special ones that you love them at least once a week. Some can’t show their love with their actions, and some think that words are empty, but saying that you love someone is better than not saying it at all. At least, they will know that they are loved and needed. They will not think that they are worthless. All we need is a little bit of love and a little bit of peace to lead a truly happy and complete life. Dole out joy and happiness by loving someone. There’s no better deed than loving a person. There’s no greater virtue. Do it, you’ll feel that your life is worth it.

    It’s genuinely very difficult in this busy life to listen news on TV, so I simply use
    internet for that purpose, and take the hottest information.
