    May the force be with you! 

    30 years have passed since the day the first Star Wars movie was released. Rediff asks you about your favourite scene. I am listing down mine.

    • Princess Leia in the gold bikini – Hell yeah!!
    • Dooku vs Yoda
    • Vader vs Skywalker
    • Darth Sidious (Chancellor Palpatine) talking about good and evil and the Sith in the “Revenge of the Sith”

    Look at the stars 

    I have been listening to Coldplay ever since I have returned from office today. Here are the songs that are playing in a loop.

    1. Trouble – “… I never meant to cause you trouble

    2. Scientist – “Nobody said it was easy, No one ever said it would be this hard

    3. Fix You – “When you get what you want but not what you need, When you feel so tired but you can’t sleep

    4. Clocks – “Confusion never stops, Closing walls and ticking clocks
    Gonna, come back and take you home, I could not stop that you now know

    5. Yellow – As Rahul says, “… making an ordinary colour seem so romantic

    And I love how they refused to sell their songs to promote Coke and stuff. And I love them for being so U2ish.

    Walk On 

    Another brilliant U2 song that should be on my list of favourite U2 songs. Check out the lyrics.

    And love is not the easy thing
    The only baggage that you can bring
    Love is not the easy thing
    The only baggage you can bring
    Is all that you can’t leave behind…

    U2 – Walk On
