T here’s something completely enticing about the kind of impression music can leave on you. Experts are trying to understand how our brains can hear and play music. A stereo system puts out vibrations that travel through the air and somehow get inside the ear canal. These vibrations tickle the eardrum and are transmitted into an electrical signal that travels through the auditory nerve to the brain stem, where it is reassembled into something we perceive as music. And this music brings nothing but positive vibes to us. And looking at how we are all dedicating and committing to celebrating the beauty of our homeland this month, here’s looking back at the top 5 songs which define and present our love for our homeland in sheer colors & tunes!
Maula by Vital Signs
Junaid Jamshed was an enigma of sorts- his soothing voice and perfected lyrics to his music would bring sheer joy to anyone who came across his work but it was probably this beautiful display of art as he and his band members of Vital Signs brought the joy of how we embrace our country- even with its shortcomings- to full glory. Maula was a remarkable song that stood out and even today remains one of the best patriotic songs to have come from this country.
