New Music

Lots today. Guess what I was up to last night?

Piyu Bole - Parineeta

Not sure why I have this one. Sure, it's sweet and ditty, but it's not that great. I don't expect it to last on my playlist.

Ghar Jayegi Tar Jayegi - Baby Doll Hot Ones

Otherwise known as the "one with the prostitute". An ever rising key and playful lyrics make this one accessible to everyone; in fact I'm not sure of anyone who doesn't like it.

Ban Jaayiye - Silsiilay (Himesh Reshammiya)

Bit of a mixed one and again one I may have added on a whim. Powerful and poignant though, but I fear I am becoming less discerning about what I listen to...

Bulla Ki Jana - Rabbi Shergill
Tere Bin - Rabbi Shergill

In my opinion the two best tracks from his album, Rabbi has a free spirited hippy sound that everyone seems to relate to and know. Watch them sway as they listen.

Mausam - Nitin Sawhney Ft Reena Bhardwaj & Murtaza Khan

My first Nitin track (yeh yeh, I know, but it's not my fault I'm not cool). A very chilled out and easy going tune to bring you down after a hard day's work. Or something like that anyway.

Nach Baliye - Bunty Aur Bubli

Only here because of the next track.

Kajra Re - Bunty Aur Bubli

Now this song has a bit of a story behind it. Initially repeatedly played by The AN a month or two back, I didn't realise how much I liked it till they had stopped. And of course I didn't pay attention then to its name or where it had come from, and so I was stuck when trying to get myself a copy; and it not being a part of the official AN playlist didn't help with my futile research. In desperation I even asked the friends who I thought would know ("It's sung by a woman. Erm, that's all I can remember"), but they just looked at me like I was mad. Even I started believing I had made it up, the song itself beginning to fade from my memory. However, thanks to my contacts at AN (cough, splutter etc) and a bit of luck not only did I finally manage to get the song name and source (the B&B soundtrack would have been the last place I'd have looked) but also a dedication on the radio to boot. Frankly, I'm surprised a song caused so much hassle and grief, but hey, it's currently my tune of the moment and so it was kinda worth it. And as a bonus it's even sung by Ashy in the movie...


  1. who is ashy?

    and erm well.. you have bad taste in moosic!!!


  2. People who like Nitin Sawhney only think they're cool.

  3. Ashy can sing?
    liked the song too, seen the video? I purchased a pirated version of BB just for this man...
