Tinie Tempah - Children Of The Sun ft. John Martin

Didn't know of this until I searched for this gentleman "John Martin" on Wikipedia & voila!! Found one gem of a song! 

John Marin is not an unfamiliar name in music world. He is the co-writer and sole singer of one of the my most favorite songs "Don't You Worry Child" by legendary Swedish House Mafia. He had also teamed up with Swedish House Mafia for their song "Save The World". So, John needs no introduction. His voice is probably the best I have heard in songs outside of India.

Lets come back to Children Of The Sun. Its a rap song, something that I would have easily ignored if it didn't have John Martin's name against it. But since I saw his name, I gave it a spin and lo! I was mesmerised to the core! 

"Lay down your head
You're not alone
Anywhere you go, I follow
We are the children of the sun
That's all you need to know"

Children Of The Sun is a kind of song that lifts me up when I feel low. I ignored the rap part since that's not my cup of tea. The hooks are incredibly catchy & John Martin's vocals sound so soothing. I might be wrong but I get a feeling of autumn when I hear it. John's vocal delivery is impeccable and is the USP of this song. Its stellar in its own sense. The vibes I get after listening to it, the feel-good factor, that calmness! The official video is also devoid of typical flashiness & John's presence is always a plus point. I don't know why but John looks like Lord Jesus ;-) And his songs always connect me with positivities. In the world full of trashy music videos & songs, John's music comes to me as breath of fresh air! Listen to it and experience it for yourself. Actual song starts @1:20.

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.
