Musical waves

The one thing I like the most about working in my office is the music which keeps playing all day long. All kinds and all genres –Β  regional, national, international. We even have customized birthday songs and celebratory music pieces. The outcome of listening to different kinds of songs everyday is that I have started loving them without even understanding them, some times.

* * *
This is a Bengali or Oriya song I guess. Do let me know if you know after listening. I have come to like it after listening it almost everyday, quite contrary to my notion that I start disliking songs if I keep on hearing them for a long time.

( Please do not see the video, only listen to it. Otherwise you will start doubting your intelligence. Just they way I did.)

This one is a lovely composition by Rahet Fateh Ali Khan in Punjabi. The first time I heard it, I asked the guy who played it, about the song details. He told it is originally in Punjabi, which is equally soothing to the ears. Of the two, both are good. I could not find the unplugged piece of the Punjabi version, here is the Hindi one.

Will you remember is a personal favorite. I heard it for the first time during a train journey. The passing mountains and fields were perfectly complementing the song as a background picture. It is a slightly melancholy-ish, but that’s just a tinge of it. I feel it has a twirl-y dance-feel to it πŸ˜€

Three is enough for a day no :mrgreen:

If you like them, I will keep them coming, maybe as a series :D.

If you do not like them, tomatoes are welcome. I will send you my address, I could certainly do with some in these days of skyrocketing prices πŸ˜› πŸ˜› πŸ˜›

P.S All is well in my land. The outburst was sincerely looked into πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰

  1. Arey this is super refreshing ! Ek jibon sounds like Bangla/ Bengali to me. I don’t think it is Oriya…. I did not take your advice and watched the video. Sigh!

    Loved the Cranberries one! Such hauntingly beautiful score!

    Make this a series please. Cannot afford tomatoes πŸ˜› Kidding. Will enjoy this one!

    • Bangla sounds lovely no πŸ™‚

      Haha, I was mortified as to how come the visual presentation be so bad for such a beautiful song.

      Haunting is the right word. I do not know what draws me to it πŸ™‚

      Oh thank you…yay….it is a Wednesday series then πŸ˜‰

  2. The Punjabi one is my personal favourite too. We used to do the same in our college computer lab, play some random favourites. It used be so much fun specially during submissions.

    • Our lecturers were too strict..they never let us play music 😦 The college festivals brought out total enthusiasm along with innumerable CDs πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

  3. Really nice music, can ignore the videos.. πŸ˜€ Even I enjoy some songs from other languages I don’t understand, music is surely soothing.

    • You are a good girl Jazz, some naughty ones suffered after seeing the videos πŸ˜› πŸ˜›

      I find the regional songs interesting πŸ™‚

  4. Your office sounds so cool, like a lovely place to work in! πŸ™‚

    It’s been ages since I listened to music properly. And I love experimenting with different languages (in music), even with those I don’t understand. So, I am going to listen to these 3 songs you have put up here and come back later and tell you how I liked them. πŸ™‚

    Oh, and I would LOVE it if you could continue this as a feature.

    BTW, I have ‘discovered’ a few songs in other languages too. I don’t understand them, but I love listening to them anyway. I think I should post them on my blog sometime.

    Good to know things are sorted out in your household. πŸ™‚

    • Yeah, it is cool ! I took time to adjust, since I came from a different kind of working environment πŸ™‚

      Oh thank you so much, with you it makes two who want to hear more nageene πŸ˜› πŸ˜›

      Do the post no, I will then play it at my work and brag about them :mrgreen:

      Haha, had to πŸ˜‰

  5. The Cranberries sounds scary. 😦

    I liked the other two a lot, especially the one by Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, though I didn’t understand both. I think Ek Jibon is Bengali, too. Also, I didn’t heed your warning and saw the video too – sigh! 😦

    • Oh..maybe do not see the video and just listen to the song..it is a bit haunting, but the emotions are so pure πŸ™‚

      you saw the video?? hope you never recollect it πŸ˜†

    • 😯

      * Visha runs and brings a glass of water to sprinkle on fainted GB *

      😯 😯

      * Since GB is still not responding, starts to play R&B songs *
