Raatein -Shivaay

Raatein is a feel good emotional track with acoustic arrangements coupled with soothing lyrics and soulful voice

Mood:Emotional,Nostalgic,Father -daughter relation

Lyrics: The lyrics are written from the perspective of daughter towards her father.It overall depicts the warmth, love and security a daughter feels in her father's company

Composition:It's a soothing composition by jasleen royal.The style of composition is more so of the kind of a singer-songwriter style.But the composition gets repetitive after a while ..

Vocals:Jasleen Royals vocals depict the voice of a daughter ..warm ,singer songwriter kinda vocals..with western touch

Arrangement:The arrangement is more of acoustic pop starting with guitar riff and then beats kick in and things loop on..

Ae dil hai mushkil -title track review

.This is a very different and catchy song.A must listen....

Mood: Unrequited love,Passion

Composition: The composition is a pretty different composition compared to the most currently in Bollywood that almost always sound similar.The composition starts with staccato pattern and then moves on to legato phrases and the cycle repeats

Vocals:Arijit Singh does a beautiful justice to the composition.His unique style and voice texture brings out the aggression and pain the subject is going through.His voice  effortlessly portrays the helplessness of the character

Lyrics: The lyrics talks about the passion for love and the pain of Unrequited love.The lyrics portray the repetitive use of the phrase "Ae dil hai Mushkil"

Arrangement:The song starts with arpeggio patterns with pads and then moves on to the usual pop rockish arrangement.

Teri Faryaad Music Review Tum Bin2

A legendary song by Jagjit singh Recreated.If you remember Tum Bin Earlier one you will definitely know this song.This is a good attempt to Recreate the Legendary Classic.It seems like this song is Recreated now with a feministic view point.

               Rekha Bharadwaj known for her ghazalish singing has done a good Job keeping the feel.But the icicng on the cake is when Jagjit singh Sahabs voice kicks in.Its literally Gooesbumps.Thanks to technology for making it possible

                The arrangement is Modern yet goes with the feel of the song.

Why Music Should Be Part of Your Daily life

"Music"--Its there everywhere.Be it in the gust of wind or the rustle of leaves.Be it in the flow of river or the gentle cry of Baby.

Its there in your everyday life-in the FM radio you turn on while commuting;in the songs your cab driver plays back home;Its there as background music in your favorite soaps;its there as the ringtone of your mobile.But seldom do we pay an attentive hearing to Music.This blog post talks about "Why you must give an an attentive hearing to Music in your day to today life.

           I definitely do understand that we all are busy people.Trying to achieve something great or just trying to meet ends.But Music can just help you do that in an efficient and stress-less way.Here's why....

1) Music Relives Stress: OK!!!!Now you will tel me that we have heard this phrase many times,but it has actually not helped.I think the reason why it has not helped you is because you have done it in some form of haste or probably you might have been  multitasking while listening songs;Definitely this doesn't help.Next time do this small exercise.Its like Meditation.

           When you come back home and feel you are stressed do this.Lock up yourself in a room.Switch off the lights.Keep everything else away.No gadgets/No Social Media.Pick up your iPod/Music system.Select your favorite playlist.And listen to the songs in a gentle volume.Listen for at least half an Hour.And at the end of half an hour you will be a different Person.(Do let me know in comments,how you feel after doing this exercise)

2) Music Fosters Creativity : Yes It Does.The amazing amalgamation of music and lyrics makes your mind calm and relaxed,in-turn fostering Creativity.What more...You could come up with your next Million dollar Business Idea or Best pick up line for the girl you love while listening to music

3) Music Motivates you: Sometimes we are down because something didn't go the way you wanted to .When you are in such a situation take refuge under music.Repeat the above mentioned Exercise with Motivational or High Energy songs and sing it aloud.Depression has no way but to run away

4) Music is good for health: When you sing ,there are vibrations generated through out the body.Thus ensuring you are at least risk as far as Cardio-Vascular Diseases are concerned.Your lung capacity will also Increase

5) Music improves your Focus and Discipline:In order to learn a song or a melody you need very good focus.You cant learn a song while checking your Facebook news feed!!!And also to master certain techniques you have to show up for practice day in day out.Amazing Discipline is Required. And i guess you know that focus and Discipline are necessary to achieve anything in any field.

6)Music introduces you to different Culture:When you listen to a song from east you get exposed to the culture over there/When you listen to western music you get exposed to western culture.Similarly listening to a folklore can introduce you to the folk culture.Music makes you culturally enriched.

There are so many benefits of music  apart from these you might have experienced.Post them in the comments.I would be glad to know.

          Finally I end the Post with this  Quote....

"If Music be the food of Love ,Play ON..."
