Good Music

If you like listening to music, then here are some good ones (just desi ones) -

  • MTVs Band Aasma (Music by Salim-Sulaiman)

  • Channel Vs Band Viva (Various Music Directors including SEL and Salim-Sulaiman)

  • Hindi Soundtracks that I like from recent Films:
  • "Mat Ja" from Shabd. Very good music by Vishal-Shekar.

  • All the songs from Black Friday. Good music by the band Indian Ocean. Their earlier albums include Kandisa, Indian Ocean, Jhini and Desert Rain. I am listening to their album Kandisa right now.

  • "Guzar Na Jaye" from Rog. Excellently sung by KK and very good music by MM Kreem and Gaudi.

  • Waiting to listen to the Indian Idol album.

    Tamil Soundtracks that I like from recent films:
    Most of the songs from Chellame. I really liked the picturisation of "Kadhalikkum Aasai". The song in the beach and the dance sequence was excellently made. Good music by Harris Jeyaraj and very well sung by KK, Mahathi, Chinmayi and Tippu (Harini's husband).
    Chandramukhi is a big disappointment from Vidyasagar. After Rahman, I look up to Harris Jeyaraj and Vidyasagar. Yuvan Shankar Raja, Imman and sometimes Srikanth Deva fall into my second-tier of music directors. I heard a couple of songs of Jithan by Srikanth Deva and they seem to be really good. I hate most of the music by Xerox Deva, due to his jarring use of music and not much of originality, but Srikanth Deva seems to be a better version of him. his music in M.Kumaran S/O Mahalakshmi was quite good.

    Yeah thats an amazing song. Quite true about music...All my life I have listened to music, and not until recently have I really bothered to understand the lyrics.

    Thanks for coming over. I have used before (not sure if it still has songs up-to-date). Since you are chennai based, I am assuming you listen to tamil songs also (although, I faintly remember reading somewhere that you are a Bengali), you can try Or if you just want just listen to it online, or are good.

    Strings is an amazing band. I like them very much. I have heard their Duur and Dhaani albums. They have a very strong hindustani background which adds to their vocal talent. Their guitar power is also excellent. Another good band is Fuzon, another pakistani band. And of course, our own Desi band - Euphoria is an excellent band. "Dum Phichak" is one of my favorite, which features Shubha Mudgal. Havent yet tried out Moksha or the other recent ones - should do that soon. Have you heard Indus Creed? Their "Trapped" song was really good. Now they have disbanded. I think I can write a seperate post on just this :-)
