Yaara (Javed Ali's Pop Album) - My Music Review


Reviewing Yaara - Javed Ali's Pop Album.

Yaara : - Music - Rajendra Shivv. 
Singer - Javed Ali.


When we have Javed Ali behind the mic, we always expect something soulful, something melodious, something romantic! His album Yaara lives upto the expectations. Though its nothing outstanding or extraordinary, it provides adequate relief in form of noiseless, easy on ear songs. Composer Rajendra has done a good job. Fusion can be felt in almost all the songs. Good thing is that its a small album consisting of only 6 songs (4 original & 2 good remix). Will grow on you. Give it some time.

Thare Khatir :-
The name itself suggests that there will be touch of Rajasthani folk music in this song. Its a fusion of Rajasthani folk, Indian classic music & Rock (in terms of Guitar riffs). Good experiment,must say. Javed Ali sings effortlessly. USP is the Indian melody & interesting lyrics. It comes as a refreshing change to those who have been bored of typical noisy bollywood music.

Yu Lab Se :-
Piano chords open this mushy romantic number. Hint of fusion is evident. Nothing different but it sure is tuneful. Easy on ear. Just OK stuff but Javed's singing makes it likeable.

Soone Soone Yaar Ke Bin :-
This one is typical Pop number. Fusion again is evident but is very interesting. Not a great composition though. Javed sings effortlessly as usual. Song has got a blues feeling.

Maula Maula :-
Electronic organ sounds kick off this song. Again not very interesting. But might grow on you if given a few hearings. Average song.

Thare Khatir (Remix) :- 
Is equally interesting. Good experiment again. Doesn't sound similar to original courtesy its arrangements. Go for it.

Yu Lab Se (Remix) :-
Starts off well. Distorted electric guitar riffs & electronic organs sound good. Typical remix stuff. Likeable. 

My Pick(s) : - Thare Khatir & its Remix, Soone Soone Yaar Ke Bin & Yu Lab Se (Remix).

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.
