At the end of the day

:: At the end of the day ::

The last audiophile CD I bought was a couple of months ago,
when I heard Corrine May's 'Fly Away' and Emi Fujita's 'Desperado'
over the air in the Sembawang CD shop at Cineleisure.

Then I bought Emi Fujita's 'Camomile Extra' last sunday.
Since then, the CD has been looping in my office's CD player.
And so it looped, in the background.
I was on my usual office chores, and paid no particular attention to the music selection.
Then, after a while, some tracks started to grow on me.
Especially this original piece written by Le Couple.
Le Couple became really famous in Japan after the release of "Hidamari on uta", or better known as 'Wishes'.

Maybe it is because I am inarticulate, that makes it so much easier to express myself through songs, like everyone else.
I had a recent chat with Ham Bao Bao over the difficulty in expressing oneself.
There is always so much to want to say, but somehow the words just do not come out right.
Usually, it is the silence that conveys the depth of the intent.
I recall with vividly the scene from 'Happy Together' that left an indelible impression on me;
when the tape recorder was passed to the Tony Leung in the dance hall, he tried,
and failed to say anything into the recorder.

Instead, he cried.
That moment of anguish was so poignant, so heartfelt.

Or the dance in the kitchen.
No words are spoken. For no words need to be spoken.
All that was needed was that look in the eyes, that recognition.
That breath behind the neck.
And of course, the single human touch,

to link
to connect
to love.

"and if you want to know that reason I'm crying, dear
It's cause I love you so
How I wish that there was something
I could do for you
Just to let it all
Darling, at the close of day, silently for love we'll pray"

I've always admired the ability of people whose works can touch and strike a chord in us, be it a song or movie or picture or dance. Sometimes, I wish I have such talents so that I can express myself better.
