Alok has tagged me to list my favorite, melodious songs & reason why I like them (Not language specific, I choose it that way). My likings with songs keep changing, so there isn’t some personal favorite that I listen for a continued period of time. So it took me a while, to pick few, which I frequently choose and revisit. Mostly I admire the lyrics first and then the music.
Here are my favorites –
1. “Seep Mein Moti Hain Lekin” From Moksha. I love this song for its lyrics. Here, I wrote about the song. It is very soulful and melodious.
2. “Tu Jo Nahi Hein To” From Who Lamhe. Kangana at her best.
3. “Sambala Hein Maine” From Naaraz is a lovely song and I loved to listen to it, when it played on Chitrahar.
4. Teri Yaad – From Namastey London....Music variation through the song.
5. Raat Hamari To - Parineeta....Lyrics again
6. Khabi Shaam Dale - Sur....Soulful singing by Kavita Krishnamurthy.
7. Mitwa - KANK....Lovely lyrics.
1. “If There is Something” – From Roxy Music. I love the way this song was used in the movie , Flashbacks of a fool. Love the way the music shifts from one tone to another.
2. “Time” – Pink Floyd – One of the best lyrics.
3. “Us & Them” – Pink Floyd – Toxic music. :-)
4. Proclain – The Beach…Love the music of this movie.
1. “Yava Mohana Murali” – Both from the movie and the one sung by MD Pallavi. Movie America America, adapts this song very beautifully with the theme of the movie. The first line means something like this – “Which flute has attracted you so far to some Vrindavan, far away from your home land?”
2. “Neenillade” (Translates as - Without you) – A Bavageethey from MD Pallavi. One of the best.
3. “Omme Ninanu Kaan Thiumba” From the movie Gaalimathu.
1. “Mumbe Vaa” From Silunu Oru Kadhal. I think this is one of A R Rahman’s Best ever.
