The world he had created for himself was not like yours or mine. Working through the night in the dark corner of his  room. He disturbed nobody and  stood in nobody's way.

 Just another peace loving person with some views to share.

He had his own ideologies but not the courage to voice them out. Afraid they might hurt somebody's feelings unintentionally.

He realised  many people were hypocrites, doing precisely the things they themselves despised of. Funny though, these people were never caught. So, they remain innocent in the eyes of you and me.

An idea of his, was that everyone was selfish, seeing only what that matters to oneself and always picking out the imperfection in others.

He said if a person puts a pair of purple shades on, he would see everything around him purple. That would be his perception of the world and he would think that's real.

 That would be what matters, only to him, while others see the world differently and in different colours.

You would hear a wife bragging to everyone about her successful husband,  but you will never hear her telling you of her husband's impotence or his affair with another woman.

He said we came from a mould. Everything and everyone came from a perfect mould.

 Even if some are physically imperfect like the blind, deaf or mute, however,  the mould from which they came is perfect. It was the transition from the mould to human form that caused that imperfection.

 Because of that, in dreams the blind can see and the lame can walk.

Imagine that you baked 100 gingerbread men from the same perfect mould. Some would still turn out missing a hand or leg.

When I asked if he thought of himself as perfect, he answered no. He said he had done bad things that no one except himself knew of.

The last time that I saw him, he looked disillusioned. On his face you could somehow tell that he was going somewhere.

The last thing he said was that he just wasn't meant for these times.

Horrible song, horrible singer. If not for the now famous chorus."tonight..we are let set the world on fire.." it would be the worst song of 2012.

As anyone can guess, this song may be the next most sung song in the karaokes and clubs around the world...' from Ibiza to the northern boards' ....David Bowie ( Life on Mars?)

That 'we are young' catchy and infectious chorus, however, is inferior to that previously outstanding ' we are young, we run green, keep our teeth nice and clean, see our friends, see the sights, feel aright' Supergrass and which was so disappointingly and mercilessly slaughtered and exploited by that sweet candy man, you know who, Bruno Mars, who altered the lyrics to 'we are young, we run free, stay up late, we don't sleep, got our friends, got the night, we'll be alright'. What a rip-off!! He made that great indie song sounded so cheap.

Back to the present, owing to its formidable few words like ..'.tonight, we are young'... it could be the perfect anthem exclusively suited for all the elderly die-hard members of The Sargeant Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band or some runned-down old folks home.

This song will definitely not get to be sung in football stadiums though,  as it is not that motivational, hopeful or encouraging,  nothing like that 'when you walk through a storm, hold your head up high,....with hope in your heart, and you'll never walk alone...'.by Gerry and the Pacemakers and rightfully adapted by Liverpool Football Club. You will never miss to hear it from their fans, whenever or wherever Liverpool plays. Great song, that!

Fans are very particular when come to choosing an anthem . Oasis, the British group from Manchester,  is brilliant. This group comes out with not one but two great numbers chosen by its fans to be their anthems .."Don't Look Back In Anger" and "Live Forever". Whichever one is played during an Oasis concert, the fans would feel really gratified. And for them, just by hearing and watching that played live by their group, would already have worthed the price of the ticket.

Another British group as brilliant, is Queen. Their "We are the Champions" and "We Will Rock You" can bring down any stadium anytime. Truly miss Freddie Mercury..great voice and great performer. Needless to say,  what a rock classic his Bohemian Rhapsody is and remains to be. No other rock group in the world dared to better that one.

Talking about great voice, one must say Robin Gibb of the Bee Gees did have a truly marvelous one. Listen to his "I Started A Joke". Though you may have heard many on the internet doing a cover version of that song but none ever comes close to the original. I guess its so sad that Robin passed away a few days ago and all the Djs on every radio station just pretended that didn't happen. Where's the tribute. guys? We owe him one. Truly.
