Over 20 years ago now Tjinder Singh was waxing nostalgic for the music that gave him hope growing up.
Thus the hit song, Brimful of Asha, was born and brought to us through his band Cornershop.
Now one can look back with nostalgia for the days when they were looking back,
when their music about the music which helped them get along in turn also helped us to get along.
And we can all yearn throughout the ages for that bosom of a pillow,
for the freedom of those youthful days of coming of age when the music was our escape
though it be a 45, an obsolete CD, or those 90’s radio airwaves
Today, we still ‘don’t need no government warnings’.
We need our freedom. We need it just as much now as we did then.
So we shouldn’t only look back with wishful thinking,
we must play the music, and create the music… keep alive our music…
So I say, “Joie de vivre!”
Gimme a brimful of Asha,
those carefree tunes,
my cushion of hope to see me through!
