Love Is In The Air (Pop Music Album) - My Music Review / Opinion

Reviewing "Love Is In The Air" Pop music album
Love Is In The Air - Pop Music Album

Pop culture seems to have lost somewhere now. I still remember my childhood days when I was hooked to Albums like Deewana (Sonu Nigam), Tanha Dil (Shaan) & Pal (KK). There used to be so much freshness in music that time. Now a days pop has paved way to item songs & usual bollywood stuff. Though still there are composers who have maintained quality in bollywood music. Love Is In The Air is one of those very few Pop albums that actually release these days. Otherwise Pop is lost. Barring Sonu Nigam, KK & Shreya Ghoshal, almost all the famous contemporary singers' voice feature in this album. First 2 songs just stand out.

1. Jaan Ho Meri : - Singer - Shaan.
Typical Pop number. Piano chords open this mushy romantic, sugary song. Tunes are quite catchy. Shaan sounds very fresh like his Pop days. Electronic organ also accompanies piano quite well. Good opening to the album. Highly likeable. Tuneful & sweet. Go for it.

2. Anahat : - Singer - Javed Ali.
Probably the best composition of the album. Piano chords again open this beautiful piece of melody. Javed Ali is becoming the next KK & Mohit Chouhan. Whatever he sings is likeable. Anahat is one gem of a song. Great lyrics, superb composition & brilliant singing. Soft, melodious, easy on ears & magical. Indian music can be felt easily. Tabla sounds make it sound like a complete Indian melody. Go for it.

3. Salona : - Singer -Alka Yagnik.
Good to hear Alka Yagnik after so many days. One good thing with veteran singers is that they never grow old. I mean, they always sound fresh. Salona is one typical Alka Yagnik song. Again an Indian melody based number. Very easy on ears. Slow paced melody & short. Just like my compositions. This one will grow on you. Very soft & fresh. Girls will love this for sure :)

4. Wanna Keep On Loving You : - Singer - Shankar Mahadevan.
Here comes Shankar Mahadevan who never fails to deliver. This one might not attract you straightaway but will grow on you. A typical Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy composition (though I don't know who composed this) that will slowly grow on you. Do give it a try as well. Music is simple but orchestration is a bit complex. Background raps & electric guitar make it interesting.

5. Tera Mera Pyar : - Singer - Neha Bhasin.
This time its Neha Bhasin behind mic. Didn't like it much but will surely appeal to masses. Song is simple with urban feel. Not exactly romantic. Won't comment much on this. I don't find the tune catchy.

6. Shukriya : - Singer - Babul Supriyo.
The only Rock number in the album. Bass guitar riffs open this typical Rock n' Roll song. This one is a bit interesting, though not much catchy. But will sure grow on you. Percussion is soft, so is orchestration. Babul Supriyo sounds a bit less energetic than needed. But an okay song, nonetheless. The end part is good where he changes his pitch. A good end to the album.

Love Is In The Air is a good album considering the fact that it only has 6 songs. Tera Mera Pyar is a bit disappointing but youth will love it. Love & Romance can be felt in almost all the songs that justifies the title.

My Pick(s) : - Anahat & Jaan Ho Meri.

Shaan, Javed Ali, Neha Bhasin, Alka Yagnik, Shankar Mahadevan & Babul Supriyo @ launch of this music album.

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) - …

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.

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…
