1st April, 1999

To,

The one who called me today….

To the one caller who’s missed call I did pay some attention to…

I was excited to see your missed call, dear.

Thanks for calling ÔŁĄ

It was a surprise of a lifetime that you actually dialled my number after a gap of years…. 2 years, to be exact…. And hey, you made me happy! Plus, today, it was YOUR BIRTHDAY- the day which I usually spend thinking about you, and thinking about wishing you. But, I always refrain from doing so. Maybe because I feel that you won’t like me calling you anyway, or maybe because I feel you don’t deserve my calls.

You see, you betrayed me, you lied to me… Just too many times, so I felt like a fool, for loving someone who respects me least, much about everyday till forever.

I regret us, even now. I feel we should have met at some other point of time in our lives…. Or maybe we should have related to each other differently at that time. Anyway, we’re both a mess.

I love you.

I loved you. I loved your mess. How you couldn’t be with just one girl. How you still kept trying to love, haha. How you kept trying, yet kept lying… :”)

Anyway, Happy Birthday!

– B. R.

(P.S. the call was just a dream, fortunately…. Your voice was cute though)

As I walk alone…

Green Day. The name I remember. Many people do. But….

We don’t remember the name because we memorised it….. We remember Green Day because it’s a part of our soul…. Green Day lives in our hearts.

Green Day… That boyband with the trio of Billie Joe Armstrong, Mike Dirnt, and Tr├ę Cool…. you guys stole our hearts…. Surprisingly, we love to love you guys…. And are more than lucky to keep Green Day in our hearts forever.

American Pop, Punk, Rock…. yeah…. We could categorise the band into these particular music genres….

But Green Day, you were so much more than just an American Pop Punk Rock band… You touched souls of every music lover out there. You made us all long for guitars. You made us see the beauty in the darkness of life.

Don’t really know why, but I love Green Day. I’ve got childhood nostalgia related with their songs, and there’s no way to make me stop loving Green Day. Never. I love music. And Green Day is a big part in my definition of What’s Music?

By the way, the band also has had the contribution of some past members, beside the prime trio. And James performs alongside them during their concert tours.

Green Day, an all time teenage favourite, really was to the point in capturing our emotions which are always floating around our chaotic minds.

I really hope another revolutionary rock and roll band comes into the spotlight…. And helps us relive some Green Day-like magic.

But truth be told…. There can’t be another Green Day. It’s the one and only.

Green Day is an emotion.
