Nice Songs on Radio Make Me Happy

I travel from my home (South Delhi) to office(Noida) and back accompanied by the radio jockeys….

Most of them do a gr8 job of keeping us entertained….. RJ Nitin is my absolute fav…. He was earlier with Radio Mirchi (‘Ulta Pulta' Nitin; am sure RJs Saurav and Anant had a tough time stepping into his shoes….. I tuned off after nitin left) n then moved to Red FM. The snippet he does on “Band Bajega” is just too cool…..

RJ Sarthak is also good along with his pet cow adam, polite applause and full crowd applause….

I generally keep switching channels to find songs which I like……

Today was one of the rare days when I got 3 songs in a row on the same channel without having to switch…… 102.6 Air FM Rainbow….. [yes u read it right "102.6 Air FM Rainbow"... they play some pretty good music in the mornings....]

There was “Suzanna” by “Art Company”, “ It Must Have Been Love” by “Roxette”, “I Believe in You” by “Williams Don” and “Joyride” by “Roxette”.

It’s such a happy feeling….. :-)


Song: Suzanna

Artist: Art Company




We sit together on the sofa
With the music way down low
Waited so long for this moment
It's hard to think it's really so
The door is locked there's no one home
They've all gone out we're all alone

Su-sanna, Su-sanna
Su-sanna I'm crazy loving you

I put my arm aroud her shoulder
Run my fingers through her hair
It's a dream I can't believe it
It took so long it's only fair
And then the phone begins to ring
And a strangers voice on the other end of the line
Says oh, wrong number, sorry to waste your time
And i think to myself,

Why now,

Why me,

Why.......

Su-sanna, su-sanna,
Su-sanna, I'm crazy loving you

Su-sanna, Su-sanna,
Su-sanna, I'm crazy loving you

Again I sit myself beside her
Try to take her hand in mine
The moment's gone, the feeling's over
She looks around to find the time
Then she says could we just sit and chat
And I think well that's that

Susanna, Susannna,
Susanna, I'm crazy loving you

Still we sit here on the sofa
With the stereo on ten
The magic's gone, it's a disaster
There seems no point to start again
She says I think I'd better go
She says goodbye and I say... NO!

Su-sanna, Su-sanna,
Su-sanna, I'm crazy loving you

Su-sanna, Su-sanna,
Su-sanna, I'm crazy loving you
I'm so crazy loving you.


Song: Roxette - It Must Have Been Love
Artist: Roxette

Lay a whisper on my pillow
Leave the winter on the ground

I wake up lonely, is there a silence
In the bedroom and all around
Touch me now, I close my eyes
And dream away...

It must have been love, but it's over now
It must have been good, but I lost it somehow
It must have been love, but it's over now

From the moment we touched till the time had run out
Make believing we're together
That I'm sheltered by your heart
But in and outside I turn to water
Like a teardrop in your palm
And it's a hard winter's day

I dream away...

It must have been love, but it's over now
It was all that I wanted, now I'm living without
It must have been love, but it's over now

It's where the water flows, it's where the wind blows
It must have been love, but it's over now
It must have been good, but I lost it somehow
It must have been love, but it's over now

From the moment we touched till the time had run out.


Song: I Believe in You
Artist: Williams Don

I don't believe in superstars,
Organic food and foreign cars.
I don't believe the price of gold;
The certainty of growing old.

That right is right and left is wrong,
That north and south can't get along.

That east is east and west is west.
And being first is always best.

But I believe in love.
I believe in babies.
I believe in Mom and Dad.
And I believe in you.

Well, I don't believe that heaven waits,
For only those who congregate.
I like to think of God as love:
He's down below, He's up above.
He's watching people everywhere.
He knows who does and doesn't care.
And I'm an ordinary man,
Sometimes I wonder who I am.

But I believe in love.
I believe in music.
I believe in magic.
And I believe in you.

Well, I know with all my certainty,
What's going on with you and me,
Is a good thing.
It's true, I believe in you.
I don't believe virginity,
Is as common as it used to be.

In working days and sleeping nights,
That black is black and white is white.
That Superman and Robin Hood,
Are still alive in Hollywood.

That gasoline's in short supply,
The rising cost of getting by.

But I believe in love.
I believe in old folks.
I believe in children.
I believe in you.
But I believe in love.

I believe in babies.
I believe in Mom and Dad.
And I believe in you.


Song: Joyride
Artist: Roxette


Hello, you fool I love you!

C'mon join the joyride
I hit the road out of nowhere,

I had to jump in my car
and be a rider in a love game

following the stars,
don't need no book of wisdom,

I get no money talk at all
She has a train going downtown,

she's got a club on the moon
and she's telling all her secrets
in a wonderful balloon.

She's the heart of the funfair,
she's got me whistling her private tune

And it all begins where it ends,
and she's all mine, my magic friend

She says: hello, you fool, I love you,
c'mon join the joyride, join the joyride

She's a flower, I can paint her,
she's a child of the sun,
we're a part of this together,
could never turn around and run.

Don't need no fortune teller
to know where my lucky love belongs oh no
Cos it all begins again when it ends, yea,
and we're all magic friends.

She says: hello, you fool, I love you,
c'mon join the joyride, join the joyride

She says: hello, you fool, I love you,
c'mon join the joyride, be a joyrider

I take you on a skyride,
I feeling like you're spellbound

The sunshine is a lady
who ROX you like a baby

She says: hello, you fool, I love you,
c'mon join the joyride, join the joyride

Hello, you fool, I love you,
c'mon join the joyride, join the joyride

Hello, hello, you fool, I love you,
c'mon c'mon join the joyride, be a joyrider

Moral of the story...102.6 rocks only from 9 to 10 in the morning! 95 FM i think is the coolest station and i am totally in love with Saarthak...he is articulate and verbose. He speaks really well and is very spontaneous...i think the stupid french man and adam are dumb but over all i would rank Saarthak as the best RJ of all time after Roshan Abbas! I love it when a song i like plays on the Radio especially if it is one that doesnt play very often! I hate it when 2 stations are playing songs that i like and i cant decide which one to hear! It usually happens when im driving to work in the morning...i keep switching between 95 and 102.6..
