9 crimes

Like one of Damien Rice's earlier hits, Blower's Daughter, which I absolutely love as well, for all kinds of reasons, I fell in love with this song too - "at first sound" :)
I don't know why this song is called 9 crimes, and I am not even entirely sure what the song is about other than to imagine that it's about being with Someone and thinking about/cheating on that Someone with Somebody Else.
Sort of a common theme in plenty of cool music, as it happens. Like Suzanne Vega puts it, "It won't do to dream of Caramel, to think of cinnamon, and long for you". Listen to Caramel in a car alone in the middle of a lonely highway at night and you'll know what she's getting at.

Ok, consider this my best attempt at getting over Blogger's Block. Maybe I can trace that to Dissertation Writer's Block. Or maybe the two blocks have a common cause - Blockheadedness. See what I mean? I can't even write a decent post script...:( Help!!

Few points:
1. I heard the song first as it played on a seperate tab on my trusted IE7. Then, I 'saw' the video. Sorry, it spoilt the song for me.
2. 'Is that all right' sounds so similar to 'and so it is' in tune.
3. No wonder PhD stands for 'Paagal ho gaya dekho' :-)

Ya...I know how watching a video sometimes spoils a song. Not this one for me though - sorry it did for you!
As for the PhD...you are quite right. In my case right now it's "Pagal Hun, (degree) De do!!"

The song is absolutely perfect for the movie. But since the movie is so close to reality, it is only natural, almost anybody who has ever loved must get that song :-)
