Song of the Week - "A Stranger Saved My Life Tonight" by Mans Zelmerlow

"Then a wise man came up & he said, I see you're sad, go back & then beg for the love you had.
Stranger saved my life tonight, I need my girl, I love her, yes I do.
Stranger saved my soul tonight, turned my life around."

Fed up of electropop or synthpop? Want to hear something different? How about a heart-melting soothing love ballad? Are you broken hearted? Want some relief from that heartache? Today I introduce a beautiful love ballad sung by Swedish singer Mans Zelmerlow. Its called A Stranger Saved My Life Tonight. This one is really a cure to your broken heart. Whenever I feel low, i listen to this. It instantly lifts up my mood & gives me a reason to smile. Pure bliss! So, lets discuss it in detail.

A Stranger Saved My Life Tonight is a song from the album MZW sung by  Mans Zelmerlow. It is written by Fredrik Kempe & lyrics are by Fredrik himself along with Mans. MZW peaked to # 1 on Swedish Albums Chart. Since its melody is from a person who has given immensely popular chart busters like Popular, Begging along with several others, one can expect Stranger to be in the same league (tune-wise). And Stranger just lives upto that expectation. It even crosses that owing to its pure melody, subtle production, wonderful lyrics & heartfelt singing. Stranger is very different from Fredrik's favorite genre i.e. Electropop or Schlager. This time he writes something that warms your heart.

Gorgeous Piano sounds act as intro that sets the slow pace of this ballad. Verse is beautiful & catchy. Chorus, again, is song's highlight. Post-chorus is even more appealing. Lyrics stand out throughout. Orchestration is minimal but those drums & cymbals sound way too good. Middle 8 is even more heart-melting. And then, that KEY-CHANGE in the last chorus!!! Its AMAZING!!!! Drums-Cymbals giving it a dramatic kick. Best part of the song. It dramatically changes the already beautiful mood of this ultra superb ballad. One of the best compositions by Fredrik Kempe. Deserves much appreciation. You wont be able to say its by the same man who gave Popular or Begging. Outro is subtle that perfectly ends this gem. Listen to it below.

Songs To Tell Your Love She Is Beautiful - My Favorites

Your girl is beautiful. You like her everything. Her eyes, face, smile, way she speaks, way she walks & what not? Today, I present a list of a few songs (both Hindi & English) that just beautifully describe HER beauty. It ofcourse, is in my opinion & may not neccessarily excite you. Like I always say, give songs their time to grow on you. Dont write it off starightaway.  Am not including James Blunt's You're Beautiful as I have not heard that properly. Also Chaudahvin Ka Chaand doesnt feature here since am not very much into old-songs. Anyways, below is the list of my favorite 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) - Kumar Sanu.
Javed Akhtar…

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…
