With Windows Down And Music Blaring


I went out to school very early today and decided to have the car windows winded down as I cruised down the road. I switched on the radio and had it cranked up loudly, a morning ritual, singing along with any songs I fancied on any channels I flicked.


And I noticed that every vehicles that I passed had their windows closed, the drivers must be safe and cool with their airconditioning on.


Me, an anomaly with my car exposed, and music so loud that made the motorcyclists glanced. No, I didn't feel popular or spectacular, just enjoying the fresh wind in my hair and around me.


Did you know that air conditioning leech 15 to 20 percent of power from your moving car? When I was much younger, I always wonder why my father switched off the airconditioning while driving up a steep hill, and now I know better :D


So some of the noted songs I sang on the way to school were Doris Day's 'Perhaps', The Verve's 'Bittersweet Symphony' and The Bellamy Brothers' 'Let Your Love Flow'.


And as my car entered the school's gate, Andrea Bocelli and Sarah Brightman's 'Time To Say Goodbye' was blaring out loud for all to hear. (I love this one, if I made a mafia movie, this would be a great soundtrack for a massacre scene :v )


And my students told me during a class later that they think it was a funny song with screaming voices.... Some people have no standard.


I am sorry if I was gone for longer than usual. I was a tad busier at this end of year, with the final exam coming and the closing of many documents.


But I still have time to play computer games and go out to have fun :angel


Will comment on youse people blog as soon as I can :party

Love the idea of this as music for a gangland massacre - preferably in slow motion...

Rock Chef said...

My wife and sons agree with your gangland massacre movie scene...

TechnoBabe said...

Sarah Brightman has a beautiful voice. I can picture you driving with windows down and music volume up.

Rock Chef; Wow, you and your entire family agreed on a murder scene. This is both exciting and somewhat disturbing :) ha ha ha!

Shadowthorne @ Ramzu Zahini said...

TechnoBabe; I cannot do it this morning because it was drizling on my way to school :(

Ow i havn't checked any of those songs. At least I'd try the massacre scene soundtrack ASAP! ;) :v
Let there be music! :D

My all time guilty pleasure would have to be listening to Bocelli. And I don't think that will ever change. That pretty much sums up my CD's on highest rotation.

Shadowthorne @ Ramzu Zahini said...

et; You should check them :) Sorry for missing so long.

Shadowthorne @ Ramzu Zahini said...

Eveline; Bocelli has a very beautiful voice. Some of my friends are surprised that he is blind.

As I just learned to drive a couple of months back I haven't installed a music system in my car yet, due to the sheer fear of running over someone (pedestrians in India can be very trying), that being said, you have inspired me to get a music player for my car, once my driving gets a tad better!!! :)
PS:.....making a slow and cautious return to d blogosphere.....last few months have been a tad unnerving to say d least!!!

Shadowthorne @ Ramzu Zahini said...

Vyazz; Welcome back Vyazz! I thought you are going dormant for a longer time :)
Get the best sound system you can afford. And yes, we have heard about the traffic in India :)
Good luck in both music and not hitting pedestrians :P
