I'll Never Get Over You

This is one of my favourite songs ever from the 'Garden State' movie soundtrack. It's called 'I Just Don't Think I'll Ever Get Over You' by Colin Hay.

I'm taking the song out of its romantic context and dedicating this to my father who passed on in June 2006. We had a puja (prayer ceremony) for him the other day commemorate the anniversary of his passing last week (according to the Hindu calendar).

Listen to the song if you've the time. If you've loved and lost someone, the lyrics, the guitar strums and the sad musical strains will touch you. Not in a bad way, but in a sad yet beautifully ironic way.

I hope you like it. Here is the video along with the lyrics. (There's a couple lines in the song that are inappropriate for the context I've chosen, for Papa, the one about being asked to dinner and the line after.)

I just watched it and it's brought me, nearly, to tears. Love you, Papa. Wherever you are, some of you will always be with me.

omg, this song always always reminds me of my Daddy!. In fact he has been my anchor in life and when I lost him I was so sure I was never ever going to get over him not being around for me. My biggest fan:)This brings back beautiful and sad memories Ajeya!

Hi Ajeya,
Just wanted to send you a big (((hug))) and a (((smile))).

It's okay to feel sad. It's okay to feel. It's okay. Just feel it and go where the feelings take you.
