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...
