Music Review of Haunted!

I came to know about this album when one of my friends posted in KK's group on Facebook. And since I am a die-hard fan of KK, I decided to give it a try. So here comes the review of Haunted.....Click songs' name to play.

Composer - Chirantan Bhatt. 

Lyricist - Junaid Wasi

1. Tum Ho Mera Pyaar:- Singers - KK & Suzanne. Lyrics - Shakeel Aazmi.
Honestly, I didn't like this in first hearing. Blame it to my poor quality headset that I had at that time. But since it was a KK song, I again heard it @ my home. And believe me, it blew my head off!!! I fell in love with the melody of this beautiful song. It starts off with electronic tune, and when KK sings the first line, magic begins. A progressive track that begins with slow tempo (Jism Se Rooh Tak) and ends with faster Tum Ho Mera Pyaar!!! Chirantan Bhatt did a wonderful job. Electric Guitar tunes accompany the vocals very well, so do those electronic tunes..This has become my love anthem!! Makes you feel like loving!!! And the paragraphs are simple mesmerizing!! Jab Mile Nahin Thay Tum takes my breath away!! Percussion part is very well paced and placed. GEM OF A SONG!! Full marks to composer Chirantan Bhatt.

2. Tera Hi Bas Hona Chaahoon:- Singers - Jojo & Nazam Sheraz.
Now this is called Fusion!! Sound of Tabla gives a pleasant feeling to the listener. Heard Jojo's voice after a long time. He still is the same!! Sung in a high pitch voice. This one relies on percussion part more. Though there are subtle sounds of Electric Guitar and Keyboard in the background! Tabla sound is the USP of this somg!! Very much like Sufi Rock!! Excellent lyrics as well. Composer shows his variety in this tuneful song!! Loved the sounds of Cymbals a lot :)

3. Jaaniya:- Singer - Siddharth Basrur.
Begins with a Piano tune that enthralls the heart. This one has a Blue feeling!! Piano tune & light percussion alongwith Cymbals make it quite interesting!!! Softly sung by young Siddharth. A kinda song that is quite unusual. Harsh voice of vocalist makes it unique. Loved that Piano sounds a lot...Read somewhere that Jaaniya is a Latino style song!!! Now if this is latino, then I really need to get my ears checked!!!! Latino is something that we can hear in "Ek Din Teri Raahon" (Naqaab), "Hai Ishq Ye Kya" (Bas Ek Pal), "Touch Me" (Dhoom-2) & "Maria Maria" (Partner)!!! Hope, I am not mistaken.

4. Mujhe De De Har Gham Tera:- Singer - Siddharth Basrur.
Again the subtle sounds of Tabla create a magic!!! Very melodious despite being sung in a coarse voice. But really, Siddharth sounds best when he sings like this. Very faint Tabla sound is the USP alongwith the well placed Guitar riffs. Again sounds like a Sufi number. But yet again, an excellent song. Very catchy tunes!!! Full on!!!

5. Sau Baras:- Singer - Tia Bajpai.
Kicks off with Piano sound!! Little instrumental accompaniment is there, but sure is very effective. This one gives the name of the Movie, its true meaning!! Really haunting tunes and lyrics. Tia sings it with a lot of ease. Percussion part is very well placed. Cymbal sounds do their job well. Snare Drums also seem to be playing their role well. Piano tunes create a really amazing environment where one can easily feel the theme of movie. 

6. You're So Beautiful:- Singer - Nikhil D'Souza.
This one kicks off with Acoustic Guitar riffs!!! This softly sung number is again a slow paced melody with appropriate instrumental accompaniment. Percussion is a bit heavy!! Guitar riffs in the background and absence of Cymbals (very little usage) makes it different from other songs of this album!! 

USP of the album - Absence of Noisy songs!! Mix of usual and unusual music!! Ultra melodious  Tum Ho Mera Pyaar is my pick of the album.
My rating :- 4.5 out of 5 :)

Songs To Tell Your Love She Is Beautiful - My Favorites

Your girl is beautiful. You like her everything. Her eyes, face, smile, the way she speaks, the way she walks & what not? Today, I present a list of a few songs (both Hindi & English) that just beautifully describe HER beauty. It of course, is in my opinion & may not necessarily excite you. Like I always say, give songs their time to grow on you. Don't write it off straight away. 
I am not including James Blunt's You're Beautiful as I have not heard that song properly. Also, Chaudahvin Ka Chaand doesn't feature here since am not very much into old songs.

So, below is the list of my favourite songs that I hear to praise her beauty, in no particular order.

1. Main Agar Kahoon(Om Shanti Om) - Sonu Nigam & Shreya Ghoshal.
Main agar kahoon tumsa haseen, kaaynaat mein nahin hai kahin, taareef ye bhi to sach mein kuchh bhi nahin.
No need to explain anything. She indeed is beautiful & this song seconds that.
2. Ek Ladki To Dekha To Aisa Laga(1942 A Love Story) - …

Song of the Week - "Stupid With You" by Eric Saade

"I can't seem to walk right, I cant seem to talk right, I keep doing stupid little things. You cripple my brain babe, by being amazing, I keep doing stupid little things. Am stupid with you, you raise my heartbeat when you smile. Am stupid with you, you raise my heartbeat everytime. Am stupid with you, you, you. Am stupid with you, you, you." If the above lines didnt excite you, you never loved someone. Only a person who loves can feel the warmth of it. Today, I present a song that describes aptly the condition of a doting lover. Its one super sweet, super cute song that goes to warm your heart & make you love your lover's smile even more. Stupid With You is an upbeat bubblegum pop (not sure, though!) song from Eric Saade's 2nd Studio Album Saade Vol. 1 which debuted at # 1 on Swedish Albums Chart & continued to be for 5 weeks!. It remained on the chart for 44 weeks & was the fastest selling album for 2011. Its written by none other than Fredrik Kempe alon…

Hindi Songs Without Percussion.

Around 4 years ago when i took NIIT IT Aptitude Test (NITAT), first question that I encountered was a comprehension one. It was a paragraph about drums & percussion. It said percussion is heart of any song. Well, I agree. But there are a few songs that don't have percussion part. Percussion means any music instrument like drums, tabla, dhol, dholak, mridang etc. Probably this is first of its kind post. Below are the 2 very good songs that don't rely on percussion.
1. Jaao Na (What's Your Raashee?) - Music & Singer - Sohail Sen. Progressive. Almost entirely carried out by guitar strings. Very enjoyable, very sweet. 

2. Tujhko Jo Paaya (Crook) - Music - Pritam, Singer - Mohit Chauhan. Again relies on guitar strings. Down-tempo & a bit coarse.
