Seriously, I swear I'm not just Googling myself constantly. What I was doing was, I was writing this blog post and so I wanted to find another post I'd written on a similar topic for a reference. Pretty meta, right.  So anyway I somehow was Googling my name to see if I could find it easier, but instead I found this.

This  might be one of the best things I've ever seen in my life. I haven't ever watched a Bollywood movie, but this might warm me up to 'em. India is not playing around.  I love the retro outfits, the shaky lip syncing, the crazy dancing, the wigs... count mine snatched, like the kids say these days. The song itself is pretty catchy, a little psychedelic rockish. It's just so fun!

I have to know more.  Wikipedia tells me this isn't just a band, but a solo song by a movie star/television star backed up by a band. Well, they also call him a "Playback Singer", which I learned means that in some Bollywood movies, he does the singing for the main actor.  I think we call that a voice double? I don't know.  He seems like a hardworking, good guy.  Clearly has a strong sense of humor in the video. He's cute, too, doesn't hurt. Anyway, his article doesn't  say anything about this song. So since it doesn't have subtitles, I had to do more searching to find out what it's about.

Here are the lyrics. Bold is Hindi, obviously.

behka behka khoya khoya
rehta hoon main
kyun na jaaga jaaga
aur na soya hoon main

I am intoxicated, lost
these days.
why am I neither awake,
nor asleep.

tere khayaal mein
tere hi pyar mein
Dooba Dooba sa main

in your thoughts,
and in your love,
I'm like drowned.

behka behka khoya khoya sa main
kyun na jaaga jaaga aur na soya main

I'm a little intoxicated, lost,
Why am I not awake, nor asleep.

tere khayaal mein
tere pyaar mein
Dooba Dooba sa main

in your thoughts,
and in your love,
I'm like drowned.

chalta chale dekhe na daayen na baayen
phansta hai khud aur mujhko bhi ye phansaaye
baawla hai bewakoofi karta hai kyun
bina pankh ke ishq liye uRta hai yoon
paagal huaa man teri hi wajah se
pagal sa pagla hoon main

it keeps going, doesn't look right or left,
it gets trapped and traps me too,
it's crazy and does idiotic things, don't know why,
it's keeps flying taking love, without wings,
the heart has become crazy because of you only.
and I'm crazy like this crazy (heart).

behka behka khoya khoya sa main
kyun na jaga jaga aur na soya main

DOES MY NAME MEAN "INTOXICATED" IN HINDI?!  If it does, that's.... kinda cool. It's the exact same spelling and everything. Nobody spells their name like me it seems, and here I am in a whole 'nother language.  This is just crazy.  How did I not know about this?! Three years this has been on the internet, and I didn't find it?! And it's so cool and fun, this is just amazing.  My month has been made, you guys.

Intoxicatingly yours,

Behka
