Time To Pray by Sirusho, Jelena & Boaz - A soulful, inspirational song

Time To Pray, a beautiful-upbeat song that describes the pain & agony felt by people who have suffered from terrorism & other forms of violence. 3 singers from 3 different countries team up to sing a song that describes their common pain. The song is in 3 or 4 languages (I am not sure as I dont understand anything except Hindi, Gujarati & English). Sirusho from Armenia, Jelena from Serbia & Boaz from Israel have sung just beautifully. Their voices gel so well with each other. Music wise, its a brilliant composition with influence of Rock. This song breaks the barriers of countries, languages & cultures. This shows music knows no barrier.
It really pumps you up. The upbeat feel is quite evident right from the time Jelena sings O My Lord. One of the rare songs that is sure to make you happy & connected to almighty. Do go for it.

Music Review of Ek Tha Tiger

Been waiting for Ek Tha Tiger's music since long. Now that I have heard all the songs, I am writing a short music review of this album.

When you have Sohail Sen along with Sajid-Wajid as music composers, expectations are sure to be very high. Ek Tha Tiger lives up to the expectations. There are 8 songs in the album with 4 originals, 3 remixes & 1 theme song. Music is melodious & since there is a hint of Persian music, it sounds even more interesting. Below is the short music review of Ek Tha Tiger.

1. MashAllah : - Singer(s) - Wajid Khan & Shreya Ghoshal.

Perfect opening to the album. The video has already gone viral on the internet. Typical middle-east tunes open this. Prelude is quite catchy. Sajid-Wajid then fuse it with electronic tunes. Tune is instantly likeable & arrangements are quite interesting. Wajid & Shreya sing in perfect Persian accent. Techno effect is nicely placed.

2. Laapata : - Singer(s) - KK & Shreya Ghoshal.

My Favorite Eurovision Song Contest 2012 Songs

First of all I would like to mention that this post is based on the post written by Ms Jelena. This is the link of that post. I thank her for the post & I have fallen in love with few of the songs that she has mentioned on her blog. Thanks to her once again. Below are my most favorite songs from Eurovision Song Contest 2012. Please drop your comments & let me know which one(s) is/are your favorite(s).
1. This Is The Night : -By Kurt Calleja. This Maltese entry is undoubtedly my most favorite. Falls in the Pop genre but has hint of  Rock as well. Kurt sings it quite softly. Melody is quite catchy & orchestration is superb. Will grow on you. Give it a few tries & you will end up humming its tunes.

2. Waterline : -By Jedward. Irish singers Jedward's Waterline is a typical Europop number that will make you wanna tap your feet straightaway. Tune is quite Catchy & singing is energetic. Fast-pacy music that you'll like for sure. Arrangement is quite interesting.

Music Review of 'Havatum Em' - Sirusho's Album

Armenian Superstar singer Sirusho's album Havatum Em is a massive one! There are 14 songs with 12 originals, 1 remix & 1 instrumental. Album is mostly Pop & R&B and is in English, Greek & Armenian languages. There is one Rock'ish song as well. I will call it a good album because of highly unusual songs. There is a feet-tapping number, there is romantic song, & there is inspirational song. Folk music is noticeable in some songs while some sound like typical club songs. Below is the brief review.
1. Havatum Em :- A perfect start to the album. Typical R&B song. Beautiful Piano chords gelling well with Sirusho's voice. Very soft, easy on ears & enjoyable.I don't understand a word but music gives an impression of losing someone special & remembering him/her. Beautiful singing & light orchestration.
2. Erotas : - Now this is interesting. 2nd song is just opposite to the first song. This one is in Greek language (if i am not mistaken, Sirusho s…

Qele Qele (Yerevan Remix Edit) - Brilliant Remix

If there is one song I am addicted to these days, its got to be Qele Qele - Yerevan Remix Edit. Sung by beautiful Sirusho, this one has all the elements to become a chartbuster. Superb - high-energy singing, high-octane arrangements & catchy beats. Qele Qele means Come on, Come on. It starts off with Sirusho singing in high-pitch, Sunidhi Chauhan style. And when she stops, magic begins again. Electronic organs gel well with percussion & vocals. Just turn up the volume & sit back. This will continue to grow on you for long. Highly addictive remix. Hint of folk is also noticeable & Sirusho sings her heart out. Watch the live performance below. A perfect number to tap your feet to.
