My blog to discuss & share the music that I like. Great songs deserve the audience & the audience deserves great songs. I am trying to bridge that gap with my blog.
A vast majority of my posts are dedicated to Swedish music because Swedes have mastered the art of producing great music which my ears are addicted to. Of late, I have also started writing about Dutch Trance music.

Song of the Week - "Begging" by Anton Ewald
"Baby don't go, OOOOOO, you've got me begging begging, got me begging for more. I wont let go, OOOOOO, you've got me begging begging, got me begging for more!"
Guy requesting his girl not to go + pulsating electro sound + brilliant choreography = BEGGING!!!
Debutant Anton Ewald couldn't have got a better start to his singing career. People always knew about his dancing skills & choreography but singing is something he took rather seriously. Begging is another very hot favorite song of mine. Its tune just refuses to leave my head. An up-tempo, electropop tune with a massive chorus. Those backing Synth sounds (hooks) are simply superb. Well, lets discuss Begging.
Begging is an up-tempo, electropop song that first featured in Melodifestivalen 2013. In prelimnary round, it came 3rd & thus advanced to Andra Chansen (Second Chance). There it won convincingly & stormed to Final where it stood 4th. More importantly it peaked to #1 on Swedish chart & stayed at #2 for a month before ending up being #3 & subsequently left the chart after around 3 months. It is written by one of the finest Swedish songwriters Fredrik Kempe alongwith one of the best Swedish producers Anton Malmberg Hard Af Segerstedt who also wrote Eric Saade's Masquerade & Why Do We Need Fashion. Fredrik Kempe hardly fails to impress & Begging indeed is one of his best sounds after Popular. Lets now talk about technicalities.
Intro is super electro but brief. Verse is deep. Those backing AAWOO are interesting & effectively fill the song. But the finest moments are when Chorus starts. Its high-octane, massive, electro & highly engaging. The sound is simply pulsating. Second verse & chorus are similar to first & Middle 8 is quite techno.Post-chorus is even more massive, floor filling. What stands out is the production. Those hooks really enthrall. And then the last chorus that melts into super amazing post-chorus. Not to mention Anton Ewald's super choreography & dancing.
Begging has everything. Melody, production, singing & one must give credit to young debutant Anton Ewald who made a brilliant progress since the prelims where he focused only on dancing & not singing. Andra Chansen saw him progress a lot. His choreography was brilliant always. He sang well, danced well & enlivened the atmosphere. Begging remains one of my favorites. Watch the Andra Chansen performance below.
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) - …
"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…
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.
