Song of the Week "Temple of Love" by BWO

Temple of Love is an amazingly peppy, high-octane, full of energy song that you wont be able to ignore. Definitely the best Synthpop song I have ever heard. This one really enthralls my broken heart. Been feeling quite sad of late & Temple of Love helps me get over those blues. Its brilliant. Pure bliss. One of my all-time favorites.

Lets dive deep into the technicalities. Temple of Love is an uptempo, upbeat song written by Alexander Bard & Anders Hansson & sung by Martin Rolinski who are a part of Swedish Synthpop band BWO or Bodies Without Organs. It first featured in Melodifestivalen 2006 where it stood 2nd. Then it was released as a single from the studio album Halcyon Days & reached to # 1 on Swedish chart. Song kicks off with a long delicious intro. Doesnt follow the common verse-chorus-bridge-postchorus style. Chorus is just amazing that repeats many times. Since its a Synthpop number, you'll feel Synthesizer sounds all over. Martin puts all his energy in singing & song's production is just outstanding, hence overall feel is a treat. This is one of the songs where production outshines singing. Synth sounds are engaging, melody is gorgeous but production is class apart. Melodifestivalen's live performance only adds to the already engaging experience. Its a treat to hear. Watch & hear to your heart's content. Watch the gem (live performance) 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…
