Celebrating Music Diversity - My Favorite Songs In Different Languages

Music knows no language. Most of us stick to our mother-tongue & to some extent, to the universal language English. But the beauty of music lies in the fact that tunes & melody have nothing to do with the language. Its a supreme language itself. While lyrics add meaning to the song, its the melody that matters the most. This LONG post is about celebrating diversity of music in my way. All these songs are among my favorites. Wont try to explain much here otherwise the post will get even longer!
TL;DR

1. Hindi (my mother-tongue)

"Kun Faya Kun" by Javed Ali, Mohit Chouhan & A.R. Rehman.

Soulful, soothing, beautiful, melodious, lifting, upbeat & what not? Not completely in Hindi (a few Arabic & Urdu words used) but still, this one is the most beautiful Hindi song for me.



If you insist I stick to pure Hindi, below is that gem of a Hindi song with BEAUTIFUL lyrics.



2. English.

Miracles by Coldplay. Have already written about it.

3. Swedish.

"Sjumilakliv" by …

My Favorite Songs By Avicii

Being into Swedish music & not following Avicii is impossible. I always wonder how a self-made musician turned into World's #3 DJ. His transition from Sunshine to Wake Me Up is very impressive & I can't help but admire him more & more. This post includes his songs that I like the most.

1. Hey Brother - Song dedicated to US soldiers who lost their lives in Vietnam war. Song dedicated to all the martyrs. Song dedicated to every soldier. A beautiful music video. That's Hey Brother. Chorus is addictive. Quite catchy.



2. Lay Me Down - Very very catchy chorus, great piece of melody & amazing beats. Inspiring lyrics as well. Imagine this kind of pulsating music, thousands of people dancing to it & Avicii performing the song live. That's what we have in the official video below.


3. Levels - Typical Avicii stuff. Outstanding arrangements & production. 



4. Sunshine - Written & Produced along-with David Guetta, this one is amazingly catchy & instantly …

Gulon Mein (Upbeat Version) - A song by KK that deserves special mention

KK is my most favorite singer, those who know me know this. I have almost all the Hindi songs that he has sung apart from a few Telugu ones as well. One thing that defines him is his penchant for QUALITY & not quantity. That is the reason you'll hardly find any of his songs that lacks melody. Enough said. From today, I have decided to include posts dedicated entirely to some of the most beautiful, melodious Hindi songs of my liking. And the list kicks off with KK's best song Gulon Mein (Upbeat Version). I wont spoil its beauty by going too technical (I am myself not an expert). I want you all to listen to this gem & go high. Ofcourse I will be discussing it below a bit.

Gulon Mein (Upbeat Version), as the name suggests, is an upbeat soft-rock song from the movie Sikandar. Its composed by brilliant Sandesh Shandilya with lyrics by Neelesh Misra (of "Yaadon Ka Idiot Box" fame). Ofcourse Chorus lines are from famous ghazal Gulon Mein sung by great Mehndi Hasan Sa…

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.
