Bollywolly caught my attention!!!!

Yes. Bollywood music isn't that bad either. I'm not going to write long descriptions about why I like a particular song here. I will just name a few songs I have liked in recent times. Just go ahead and try them. See if we hold the same opinion....

In no particular order, here are some songs you should listen to.

#1 Mahi -Rock with me(Raaz-2) I'm just crazy about this song
#2 Nayan Tarse (DevD) - I'm sure everyone has heard this sometime during last year's hostel nites....If you haven't then listen to it now!!!
#3 Sufi Tere Pyaar Mein (Jai Veeru) - Although the movie bombed this song is pretty good.
#4 Kuke kuke (Life Partner) - One word "Funny!!!!"
#5 Pehli Baar - Slow version (Kaminey)
#6 Ye Dooriyan (Love aaj Kal) - Again Mohit Chauhan magic takes over.
#7 Paayaliya (DevD)
#8 Haafiz Khuda/Kuchh Is tarah (8 x 10 Tasveer)
#9 Tennu Leke (Jai Veeru) - I still dunno why I like this song but here it is on the list.
#10 Ranjhana (DevD) - Short but pretty good.

Copying a Friend..... "My Unforgettables List - Instrumentals"

One of my earlier posts refers to this song that I just couldn't get my mind off. Well here is another list for those who dare (because I am talking about addiction).

A musical genius!!!???? Na. He just a guy like you and me. IITM alumnus (1999 batch i guess!). He came to study Nav Arch but decided to follow his heart to where the strings led him. If you still haven't guessed who it is, it is PRASANNA. He has created some really fantastic tunes and trust me you'll be wondering why you didn't discover these songs earlier. So go ahead try some of my favourite compositions. I have to thank saf for introducing me to these songs.

Peaceful - the cause: A tad slow but it will be the cause of peace in your world.
Peaceful - the effect: The peppy one.
Ragabop, Kalyani connection, takatakita, eruption in bangalore (awesome if you like heavy distortion guitar) and Snakebangers ball(Rocks!!!) among others are some you should not miss.

This is snakebanger's ball...

This is another suggestion from a friend "Dark Sundae in Triplicane"

As this is an instrumentals list I just have to mention this totally brilliant piece from the soundtrack of the movie "Requiem for a Dream"

The original theme of this movie is a brilliant violin piece by Clint Mansell, mixed with some bass giving an overall effect of looming darkness, as though trying to engulf you, pulling you away and keeping you rooted, portraying pain at the same time taking away your frustration. Simply put - Amazing

Oh although its not an instrumental piece completely "Shippin' up to Boston" by the Drop Kick Murphys is pretty good. When I first heard it in an ad I searched all over the net for that haunting bagpipe music.

Talking of bagpipes........ "No man's land" by Hevia is a must. Although other songs of this album are good, No man's land will be the first to capture your attention. I did capture mine.

That's all I can think of now...do let me know of other instrumentals that I might have missed. :)
