Current Favourites…

Warning: I’m putting up a ‘Current List’, so this is not to be mistaken for my 'All-Time Favourite List'.
That list will come a little later. I shall need a lot of thinking and choosing to do, and it will be an arduous task for me! It’s never easy to pick up favourites if you’ve tuned into songs from the 50s decade onwards!!

Anywhere for the time being, the current ones:

Album: ‘Parineeta’. The melody is back, more on it read here.

Hindi Song: ‘Naam Ada Likhna’ from ‘Yahan’. I listen to it atleast twice on the radio daily. The lyrics touch your heart and the music; well it reminds you of Parineeta! Shantanu Moitra’s new composition, Parineeta’s shadow falls on this song, but that only makes it more soothing to listen to. Shreya Ghosal and Shaan are once again at their best.

English Song: ‘Don’t Phunk with my Heart’ by Black Eyed Peas. It grew on me since I kept hearing it daily on the radio. It’s cool and it’s funny. It’s not your regular rock, pop, whatever. It’s plain fun to listen to. I like the way the lady swoons 'No No No”. Just listen to it;-)

Once More Please: ‘Mangal, Mangal’ from 'The Rising'. Wonderful rural feel to the song, and Kailash Kher is awesome. After “Allah ke Bande”, this should be one landmark song in his career. What a voice!

Rap Song: Bunty ‘n Babli –Title Rap by Blaze. Sorry folks haven’t listened to English music much, but clearly my favourite for its video. The Big B has “STYLE”...note the CAPS LOCK!

POP Number: ‘Nadiyon Paar Sajan', again cool song. Neat beats! Don’t ask me why, I sometimes like the odd one ;-)

Soothing Number: ‘Yeh Lamhe’ by Jaal, not the remix. The slow, original version is lovely to listen too. The kind you should listen to, more often on way home after a tedious day at work!

Most Irritating Song: I feel like pulling out my hair on listening to this song! They still make these kinds and they go down with the audience! God give me a break. I could handle “Garam Chai Ki Pyali ho” any day over this one! I’m talking about 'Aarah He Arrah Ha, Just Love Me' from No Entry!!!
Everytime I here it I find myself saying “Just Spare Me”!!!

So there it is, my Current List, an All-Time List sometime this week:-)

By the way what about yours? Go ahead list one!

I dropped in here coz of ur choice of ur fav movies on Sagnik's blog was eerily same as mine and now ur post on ur current fav songs pretty much sums up my latest list too :). Havent heard of Nadiyon paar sajan which grp is it by? I really did like the Asha Bhonsle rendition of 'Aaj Jaane ki Zid' and luckily i havent hrd the most irritating song on ur list :)
If i had to take a wild guess at ur all time list I wud put my money on either Pehla Nasha or a RD and Gulzar combine number.

I seem 2 be on another planet.. half of these songs, I've never heard of!!
Anyway do bring out ur all time list, would be interesting to compare notes, so 2 speak!
Also, write something on the 1st test now that it is over, if u can

Hey Rohan,

Thanks for dropping by. The All-Time list will take some time.

Am I that predictable or are you a good analyst???????????

Pehla Nasha is an all time favourite romantic song and the song I could swear by, or is the cult song for me, or whatever, you are getting my point is " Mera Kuch Samman" from Ijjajat. A Rd-Gulzar combine!!
You caught me!!

I'll find out the artist of " Nadiyon Par Sajan" and let you know. I've somehow always missed the name!

Hey Saurabh,

Start blogging, you'll be in sync with everything and everyone on this planet:-)) And we could do with some good blogs on cricket.

Ya I need to put my thoughts on the Ashes first test. Have to yet recover from the big crash!;-)

Pramod said...

Don't know if blogging will do any good - I haven't heard most of those songs either - perhaps its the age... ha ha ha!

But of the new songs (new for me that is) my fav. is the song Bavra Mann from Hazaron Khwa..... I cant hear enough of it - its already the second most listened song on my itunes :-) - The most listened to track is still my fav. malayalam song - almost a lullaby (a composition by the famous Swatithirunal, ever heard of him?)

Pehla Nasha and Mera kuch samaan are great songs as well - I love Mera kuch samaan... I would like to see that movie sometime too - but very often the movie takes away the beauty of song ...

Minal said...

Hey Pramod,
Age?? :-) I haven't heard about Swatithirunal, South indian songs have less exposure here.

AR Rahman Tamil songs I have caught on due to MTV/V and of course most of hindi are remakes of his original ones, and u bet they sound better in Tamil anyday!

I've caught a few glimpses of the 'Bavra Mann' Track from Hazaroon... But heard it is one of the best from Shantanu Moitra, so yes will try to get hold of that one:-)

Would love to blog on cricket, but unfortunately, advisor is s******g the life out of me. What's worse, not getting to see stuff live means I have to rely on what I read most of the times( though I must say I caught Pigeon and Binga bowling those greats spells, and Harmison flooring Punter on the highlights). And, if I write something based on what I have read, there is this litle danger of a little bit of prejudice creeping in...
Anyway, I look forward to your writing. After Harsha (and of course myself:-)) your writing often makes for the most insightful and interesting bit of cricket reading. Actually, PK's analysis is bloody good too, but he's kinda lazy

Anshul said...

Saurabh.... not sure if u know of Desitorrents. U can download most of the matches or atleast highlights and watch em.
