My blog to discuss & share the music that I like. Great songs deserve the audience & the audience deserves great songs. I am trying to bridge that gap with my blog.
A vast majority of my posts are dedicated to Swedish music because Swedes have mastered the art of producing great music which my ears are addicted to. Of late, I have also started writing about Dutch Trance music.

Qasam Se Qasam Se - Music Review / Opinion
Reviewing music album Qasam Se Qasam Se.
Qasam Qasam Se - Music : Shailendra - Sayanti.
When an album consists of songs sung by master singers like Kunal Ganjawala, Shaan, Mohit Chouhan & KK and Jal Band, it becomes a compulsion for me to check that out. Qasam Se Qasam Se belongs to this category. These big names made me listen to the album & I was not disappointed! Though, its average only. 3 songs stand out. Jal Band disappoints so do songs by Kunal & Shaan. Below is the brief review of the 6 out of 12 songs that I have heard. Will review others shortly. Read on.
When Mohit Chouhan sings a song, we can't help but get lost in that. Zindagi Keh Rahi Hai is really a beautiful song. But Mohit sings his heart out in his typical style. Interesting preludes consisting of Sax & some aalaaps / croons provide a perfect opening to this easy on ear song. Sounds a bit like some Mehfil song. Percussion is really interesting. Lyrics also support it well. Good work by composers. Go for it.
2. Tum Kahaan Ho :- Singer - KK.
Now since KK has sung it, it had to be in my playlist. Harmonica tunes kick off this "Blues" number. Piano chords accompany. Then starts KK's magical voice. He sings it in a very soft manner. Orchestration is quite minimal & goes well. This again is an easy-on-ear song. Melodious, slow, catchy & interesting. KK varies his pitch brilliantly. Go for it.
3. Tujhe Paaya To : - Singer - Mohit Chouhan.
Mohit Chouhan comes behind mic once again. Prelude sounds a bit like Kunal's song Jaadugari (Dil To Bachha Hai Ji). Orchestration is light & Mohit carries out the entire song on his own. Tujhe Paaya To is beautiful for its simplicity & Mohit's voice. He powers this catchy piece of music with his sleepy voice (no offence, he sometimes sound a bit sleepy! But that's what I like so much!). Nice composition & super smooth singing.
4. Meethi Yaadein :- Singer - Farhan.
Jal Band is well known for its smashing hit Aadat. So expectations are rather very high from this soft-rock band. But Meethi Yaadein disappoints. Lyrics are mediocre & tune also is below average. Not at all good. Can't comment more than this.
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) - …
"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…
Dangerous Ishq has 5 originals, 4 Remixes & 2 Reprise version. It is one of those rare music albums that is based on Indian melody barring Umeed which is fast, peppy foot-tapping number. You won't find usual stuff in the album (talking about the 5 originals only). Music is simple, melodious, easy on ears & a bit repetitive. Below is the review of Dangerous Ishq.
1. Tu Hi Rab Tu Hi Dua :-Singer(s) - Rahat Fateh Ali Khan & Tulsi Kumar. Melodious piano tunes open the song. Sounds very much like Nadeem-Shravan's previous work but I am not against it. Song is very soft, beautiful & is very easy on ears. Listen to it once & you will start humming Tu Hi Rab Tu Hi Dua every now & then. Tune is simple yet addictive. Good start to the album. 2. Lagan Lagi More Piya :-Singer(s) - Shreya Ghoshal & Shahab Sabri. Reminds of Tere Naam. But the tune is still a bit fresh. Shreya Ghoshal sings the…
