Turning Point - My Music Review

Reviewing pop album Turning Point
Pop / Punjabi music album Turning Point by Khiza was released in 2009. There are 20 songs in total including 2 remixes. Honestly, the punjabi tracks are no great or good. Very usual stuff. What really stand out are the songs sung by Pakistani singers Omer Nadeem & Hadiqa Kiani. Omer sounds like Atif a lot but has better voice than him. Hadiqa Kiani is Pakistan's best female pop singer & it shows in her song Muhabataan. Go for it if you're bored of usual bollywood stuff. Below is the review of the songs that I liked. Click the songs to play them.

1. Dil Ka Diya : - Singer - Omer Nadeem.

A typical pop number sung well by Omer in typical Atif style. Electronic effects can be heard in conjugation with piano & percussion beats. Instantly likeable song. Tune is simple & effective. Best part is the last Bujh Hai Gaya. The way the tune hits the higher octave sounds really good.

2. Dil Ka Diya (Dance Mix) :- Singer - Omer Nadeem.

More Electronic version of original. Beats are peppier & louder. Good one.

3. Aye Khuda : - Singer - Omer Nadeem.

Better than Dil Ka Diya. Vocals do all the magic. Tune is very impressive & catchy. Orchestration is well placed. Fast, foot-tapping number. This one doesnt sound like Atif. You will start humming it straightaway.

4. Muhabataan :- Singer - Hadiqa Kiani.

Those who know who Hadiqa Kiani is will like it no matter what & those who don't will also like it for sure. This is the best composition of the album. Hint of folk music can be felt presented in pop flavor. Percussion is impressive. Hadiqa sounds very young & fresh here. Catchy tunes & fluent singing make it the best song of album. You will feel she sounds like Nazia Hassan :)

5. Laut Aana : - Singer - Omer Nadeem.

Piano chords kick off Laut Aana which is a simple composition that last only 2 min 18 seconds. Nothing great but the length of song & voice of Omer make it a bit likeable. He sounds quite soft here unlike Atif.

Didn't like other songs much because of the heard-before Punjabi tunes & lack of good melody. Sorry, its my personal opinion. Do try all if you so wish.

My pick : - Muhabataan & Aye Khuda

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.
