'Bas Yun Hi' by KK - Amazing Song!

Many times we miss some good music just because the movie doesn't become popular & is not promoted well. And since I am always in search of good music, I keep googling for songs. Was searching for something on Saavn.com & it took me to an album called Bas Yun Hi. Its title track is instantly likeable. Sung by none other than maestro KK, this one sounds very energetic & fresh. The song takes us back to the days when Pop music was omnipresent. Bas Yun Hi has a Pop / Rock feel & will appeal to you straightaway.
From start till end, this song gives you feel of Pop that has been immensely poplular in 90s. Sounds very much like any of those hit Pop numbers. Electronic tunes, percussion gel well with KK's owesome voice. KK sounds quite young here. Arrangements are a bit complex but go really well with KK's voice. Tune is catchy. Do give it a try. KK's fans will love this a lot, am sure. There are 3 more songs by KK in this album. You may like them as well. Titl…

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

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 …

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

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 num…

Qasam Se Qasam Se - Music Review / Opinion

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.
1. Zindagi Keh Rahi Hai : - Singer - Mohit Chouhan.
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 c…
