Armin van Buuren presents Gaia - Humming The Lights (Full Version)

So, Armin van Buuren here featuring for the very first time on my "not at all popular blog" :-) The only DJ in the world to be ranked World's No. 1 DJ by DJ Mag (A Magazine) five times, 5 years in a row!! This brief info is for those who still don't know what kind of superstar musician he is :-) I have a fairly long play-list of his songs on my phone & selecting one out of that, is a tough task. I decided to select Humming The Lights here because of the vibes I get when I listen to this. 

Humming The Lights is a Progressive Trance song by Armin. You might be wondering who is Gaia? ;-) When there are no vocals in this song, how can it feature someone else as its artist? Well, Gaia is a duo composed of Armin himself along-with his frequent collaborator Benno de Goeij. Benno has co-written & co-produced many of Armin's songs. They use this alias for their darker productions & they perform with their faces covered ;-) 

Coming back to song, Humming The Lights was included as a bonus track in Armin's fifth studio album Intense. It has got a dark melody that gives an impression of a suspense-thriller movie's soundtrack. Gradually it turns into an anthemic sonic experience. There are 3 distinct melodies & a gorgeous bassline all giving a euphoric feel to it. Don't know why, but I always feel good whenever I listen to this song. For a change, it makes me forget my worries with its dark, engaging sound. It doesn't make you dance, but it surely makes you feel better :-)


Below is the Full Version of Humming The Lights. 


 
Oh, and yeah if you prefer the live performance, below is Armin performing it live in Tomorrowland 2013 with an amped tempo aka BPM which turns it into more of a dance track :-) But yes, he is performing it as Armin & not Gaia, so his face is visible :-D

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…

Dangerous Ishq - My Music Review

Music : - Himesh Reshammiya  Lyrics : - Sameer Anjaan & Shabbir Ahmed.

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…
