Wednesday Waves – III

The comments I received on the What is Moo thinking post were hilarious. What great imagination you people have! I am thinking of making it a regular feature, what say folks? Also, I decided to send the promised audio to whoever commented, since I cannot choose the best of the lot ( or read – lazy me :mrgreen: )

One major advantage of having a newborn is you suddenly have lots of time in your hands. It has so happened that I have lost sleep completely since two days. And two days ago was when Moo got her vaccination shots. So juggling between a cranky baby and sleepless nights , I came across some beautiful, breezy songs while browsing YouTube in my mobile.

I love wedding songs. The vibrancy, colors, music, dance, laughter, customs, rituals and the inherent happiness which the actors masterfully display in the movies. I came across this Mangalyam song from the Malayalam movie Bangalore Days and have been hooked on it ever since. I must have played it ten times in these two days. I can understand only some words of this language, but that is not stopping me from loving this song, take my word for it. Add to it the awesome signature dance step and all I am waiting for is a wedding invitation to make sure this song is played and danced to.

I found this remix of Bar bar dekho in my Facebook feed. Apart from the good singing, the video has been shot beautifully. Also, the lead singer is pure eye candy ๐Ÿ˜› Wonderful rendition on so many levels, this one!

Another wedding song. London Thumakda from Queen. Out of desperation to calm down a screaming Moo, I played this one and she calmed down immediately and started flailing her arms. I would consider it to be her dancing to the song ๐Ÿ˜€ Move over soothing lullabies, this kid loves high-octane dance songs and her mom cannot be more happy!

Added goodie – Want to go aww? Watch this video. Hats off to the geniuses like the creator of this one!

Wednesday Waves – II

It’s the first Wednesday of the last month of the third year of the second decade of the 21st century!

In the honor of this day, I would like to revive my long forgotten series ofย  musical pieces ๐Ÿ˜€

* * *

I happened to listen this song on an online radio site and instantly fell in love with the musical notes. There is a particular musical tune used (1:12 to 1:19), which is not that common, which makes me want to hear it again and again.

* * *

This Tamil song is occupying my mind since three days, maybe because of the wedding season? ๐Ÿ˜€ Also, I like the way how Shalini flirts with Madhavan first, scaring the hell out of him ๐Ÿ˜› Watch out for the paatis dancing in the beginning ๐Ÿ˜€

* * *

I love this song solely for the lyrics. The music is good, but it is secondary to the lyrics. I am planning to play this song in the engagement or marriage ceremony of a particularly naughty cousin of Zack’s. The expressions of both him and his bride would be priceless :mrgreen:

Wednesday Waves – I

Last Wednesday, I was determined to continue this musical series, but it was Harry Potter’s birthday and how could that be missed ๐Ÿ˜€

So here I am with a second set of triplets for your listening pleasure ๐Ÿ™‚

* * *

Buddhist chants + Jordanian lyrical music + Hindi lyrics = A. R. Rahman’s masterpiece. Enough said :mrgreen:

It starts very slowly, stays afloat and builds a crescendo. Mesmerizing.

* * *
This one is like the light tea cake which you like to have with your morning cuppa. Light and frothy, its music and lyrics stay with you for a long time.

* * *
I will always regret for never listening to or even trying to hear Jazz until I heard this one beautiful day last week. How cool will it be if life had a background music like this, while you are reading a book or cooking or even doing household chores or simply being romantic
