Song Of The Month

Since music is so important to me, and it contributes greatly to my moods, I thought I'd pick a worthy song once a month and put down a couple of lines about it. For this month, I picked Mar Jaawan from Fashion. Now I've never heard of this singer, Shruti Pathak, before. I think this movie promises to be one of the biggest disasters of the year. But I love this song. It's been playing in the much-famed pink media player for just over a week, and its play count is already 25. I love listening to this girl over and over again.

Previous songs of the month, since I started blogging:

May: Teri Yaadein from Love Story. This comes from a TV series that I'd never seen. I haven't seen it to date. I think it airs (or aired) on Sab TV. Hemant introduced me to this song one evening in Ashish's car. I don't know what it was that I liked about this song. But I did really like it. Listened to it over and over again over at least two whole weekends. This song has joined the likes of O Humdum Suniyo Re and Dil Chahta Hai in being one of the few songs that can cheer me up almost instantly, or calm me down if I am feeling restless and unable to sleep. Play count in the media player: 95. This has also been played often in my car, and on my iRiver. Oh, I still cannot remember all the words!

June: Beete Lamhein from The Train. This song used to bring back some really unpleasant memories. I played it on repeat over a week or so, and got so used to it that there was no longer any room for the negative vibes. And I ended up liking the song once again.

July: Kahin To... from Jaane Tu... Ya Jaane Na. This was one of the only two movies this year which I enjoyed from end to end, and also enjoyed all of its songs thoroughly. A R Rahman rocks! As always. Play count: 122. This is the only song I have also heard on repeat in the car.

August: Ye Tumhari Meri Baatein from Rock On!!

September: Tum Ho Toh from Rock On!! More on the music of Rock On!! here.

It(Love Story) used to be aired Sab TV and Sony at the same time.It is perhaps aired even now. I had a month to join Adobe and I watched every episode twice daily(courtesy the repeat telecasts). A beautiful love story but its treatment was mint fresh. And interestingly Sony and Sab Tv aired different episodes on the same day.So virtually I watched four episodes a day. And regarding the song of the month..., absolutely amazing, normally I do not like soulful female voices, if it is not Shreya Ghosal's, but there is something about this song, something ineffable....Just gauge it by the fact that I sat down to write a comment in your blog just to show my appreciation for this song...and ofcourse also to get in your good books....

Really nice to see you commenting on my blog after so long. The feel good factor that I get out of this sort of thing is part of the reason why I write in the first place :)
