Song of the Week - "My Mistake" by Mans Zelmerlow

Every move I made was just for me, Every song I sang was hollow, that was my mistake, I was a fool. Leaving our love behind, what we had I'll never find. I know I have made your heart break & I realize its my mistake.

So you get the idea whats in for you in this post. There was no official video, so i assume this song is for a couple whose relationship has turned sour (my guess, married couple!). So if your partner is upset with you or is not talking to you, sing this to her/him & she/he will be yours again! My Mistake is a mid-tempo ballad from Mans Zelmerlow's debut album Stand by For...(it was certified Platinum in Sweden & debuted & peaked at # 1) Written by Fredrik Kempe & Mans himself with lyrics by Fredrik Kempe, this one is one gem of a song. There cant be a better song to placate your partner. What i liked the most in this are those drums & cymbals. And that piano intro is too hard to resist. Since its a Fredrik Kempe's ballad, it had to be me…

Song of the Week - "Moving On" by Sarah Dawn Finer

Dreaming, hoping, for another try.
I've been looking, searching, deeper down inside.
And if I lose my way, I'll find another road.
Cause I can make a change on my own.
I'm moving on,
And I'm gonna get stronger now,
And nothing will break me down.
I will not give in to doubt.
Those days are gone,
I can be who I wanna be.
And start living my life for me,
I believe it finally.
I'm moving on.

Fredrik Kempe writes his heart out whenever he is to write ballads (Break of Dawn, A Stranger Saved My Life, My Mistake to name a few). Moving On is no exception. We have numerous songs to describe pain of heart-break but this one is different. You can think of it as a song that will pull you up, motivate you, inspire you & help overcome the blues no matter what the situation is. Don't just look at it as another heart-break song. It evokes hope when you're down. Moving On is for all those who need a kick to get up & start running. Enough said. Moving On is a ballad written b…

Songs To Tell Your Love She Is Beautiful - My Favorites

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) - …

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…

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 & stay…

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 si…
