Weekend fun: That playlist made me…

shop more !! Seriously people and I’m pretty shocked too.

I went to buy bread to the supermarket. May be I would’ve sent someone else. But what with this browsing-through-the-aisles-make-you-feel-better thought of mine over-riding everything, I went in myself.

That’s it. That’s the end of the deal where I buy only bread and come out in a jiffy.

The moment I enter, the melodious voice of SP Balasubramaniam welcomed me with the wonderful track which goes like “Kadhalin deepam ondru“. And there I fell from my “buy bread and go out in a jiffy“. Β This song is my eternal favorite and that movie was a super hit during my school days and Rajnikanth – I still go WOW at the way he holds people’s attention. Β And SPB…sigh….no words for him. His voice is the one which can sooth the soul in any form – happy, melody, sad – whatever. And you know, he sometimes laughs in between the singing for a few seconds – you’ve to really look out for it – there, me and my sister will pass on a shared smile and hold onto our heart. Too beautiful, I say. We even had a collection in a cassette of those songs, where he laughed a little in between. I’ve digressed enough. Let me continue my supermarket journey….I went around the bakery section three times, went through all the bakery products available, posed as though I’m reading the date and ingredients and then to the freezer section too. By the time, the last line of the song was playing, I had picked up the bread and almost decided to check out.

And that is the time they choose to put Atif Aslam from that Ranbir Kapoor movie…Oh my God…I just went back into the shop and was swaying to the music yet making everyone around me think that I am seriously debating which biscuits and cereals to buy. Β The fingers were going tap-tap tap on the trolley giving away my soul’s attraction to that track being played. Someone smiled…someone else hummed and I felt good browsing the coffee and tea sections too – of course, listening to the song πŸ˜€

The trolley was filled with a cereal box – we both don’t eat cereals, some flavored tea which we don’t like and then a few other things, I’m sure which will be of no use to us.

As Atif Aslam was coming to an end, my promise to buy only bread has weakened and I was waiting for the next song to start. And there are more aisles waiting for me to visit πŸ˜‰

This was the next on the playlist – Alvida – I hope you know that KK is another of my favorite singer and this song from Metro always steals my heart…Alvida…Oh dear…how much do I sigh…that voice is magical !!

I think I entered the shop during the last song of the tamil playlist and got to listen to the hindi ones next.

I really want to find the guy who knew exactly what song to play to keep people like me inside the shop for longer durations and may be we will end up buying something or other.

See, some unwanted items bought – a sauce pan, some door mats on offer, two big loaves of bread (I wanted only one small one), cereal, flavored tea – I’m telling you, these songs are making me buy more πŸ˜‰

What if I’m a sales girl in that super market ?? WOW…I get to listen to all the songs there πŸ˜› πŸ˜›

Or a more simple idea would be to have that playlist on phone and keep listening to it…what do you say ?? πŸ˜€

  1. Next time, you could market your podis there too. Explain in detail about how awesome they are, and spend time listening to the songs. πŸ™‚

    I know the feeling though. I was so rapt in a song once, that I chose to go two stops further on the bus. πŸ˜› Hadn’t spare change on me and had to walk back the 3 kms after.

    1. Absolutely…tha’s what I think – these supermarkets have this marketing schemes and one of them is their excellent playlists πŸ˜€
      Its easy to say that Shail…but the music blasts in the supermarket so much that you cant hear anything in the headphone…
      And also I’ll be dying to know what song they’re playing πŸ˜‰
