Bloggerstock: What is Your Theme Song?

It's Bloggerstock time once again.  This time we opened the madness to the general blogging public, and are proud to have had such a great turn out!  Visit our site to sign up for the next one.  You know it looks like fun!

Today I'm posting over at Michael's excellent blog, React/Impact.  Come, visit, read!  Follow the ring and discover music that I, along with others, love.  I am hosting a post from Amogh over at Cloned Warrior.  His amusing blog hails from one of my favourite cities in the world.  Read his bio at the bottom.  Without further ado, I give you Bloggerstock!

Hmmm.... The moment I saw this topic I started imagining firecrackers going off along with loud rock music in my head.  I could see myself wearing tight pants, making a grand entrance as if I was going to fight in a BIG SHOW!
However, this topic made me think hard, 'coz I'm no professional wrestler. Though it is true that life is like a wrestling match where you have to defend when the tide is against you, and attack when you feel the time is right. But this post is neither about wrestling, nor about life and its complexities.
Ok so let’s get to the post before I forget what we are talking about. Frankly speaking, I don't have a theme song.  Though I wanted one after getting to know the topic on bloggerstock. But then my life is way too colorful to have just one theme song. There is this one song by Hoobastank, “the reason,“ which was a smash hit in 2004 and close to my heart.
i'm not a perfect person. there are many things i wish i didn't do
but i continue learning. i never meant to do those things to you.
and so i have to say before i go, that i just want you to know

i've found a reason for me, to change who i used to be
a reason to start over new, and the reason is you

i'm sorry that i hurt, its something i must live with everyday
and all the pain i put you through, i wish that i could take it all away
and be the one who catches all your tears, thats why i need you to hear

i'm not a perfect person, i never meant to do those things to you
and so i have to say before i go that i just want you to know

i've found a reason for me, to change who i used to be
a reason to start over new, and the reason is you
i've found a reason to show a side of me you didnt know
a reason for all that i do, and the reason is you
The first time I heard this song on MTV I thought that they had written it exclusively for me. When I was in school in my 7th grade, I talked bad about a girl.  Somehow she came to know about it and then a  mess happened.  When a mess happens it happenee happens. She cried for, like, a whole week (don’t know why girls are so emotional). Everybody came to know about it. One of my math teachers said, “friendship is like a wooden fence, if there is a hole due to rot you can plug it and paint it over but the scar is always there to be seen.”  Those words still ring in my ears. I felt absolutely gutted and asked for her forgiveness. She never spoke. Don’t know whether she forgave me or not. I'm happy that I learnt my lesson when I was young. Promised myself that I would never ever make others cry. Thankfully I’ve kept that promise.
OMG. I'm getting emotional.  Shit! I’ll never get a girl if I'm like this! 

Amogh resides in Varanassi, and is an ordinary person between extraordinary people.  He has his own bubble, but is here to meet new people.  His blog is new, so feel free to visit!  Especially if you enjoy either humour, personal, issues or soccer as topics.  And who isn't covered somewhere in there?

Oh I love Hoobastank. I happen to catch them opening up for Incubus back when i was in high school (so like 10 years ago). It was before they hit it big and they were awesome then.

The reason is just one of those songs everyone relates to. Everyone's screwed up and everyone's had someone that made them want to be a better person.

Kris,thank you for letting me post here!
whenever i listen to this song i go "OMG!!! shit!" but still its very close to me.

i wanted to come up with some crazy HINDI song but i left that idea and this song is pretty universal.

anyways if you want to know somemore emo. stuff then grab a DVD of shahrukh khan movie !

You're so welcome, Amogh.

I was totally anticipating a Hindi song! Could've been fun, and shown some of your culture. I'd start getting hits from people searching "white girl in India." lol

Anyway, this one is definitely universal. Like the other girls said. It was a pleasure to host.
