My Favourite Golden Oldie: Haareya ~ Meri Pyari Bindu

This months favourite golden oldie song is technically still a new one (roughly 6 months old), but I have decided to include it, as it has emerged as one of my favourite Bollywood songs of this year, and I have a feeling it will stay in my playlists for quite sometime. The song is the melodious Haareya from Meri Pyari Bindu.

Haareya – Meri Pyari Bindu
Composers: Sachin-Jigar
Lyrics: Priya Saraiya

While I don’t consider myself to be a die hard Arijit Singh fan, I do occasionally like his releases and Haareya is one of them. It is a very simple song, but has a strong melody with meaningful, romantic lyrics and this combination is extremely rare to find these days in Bollywood Music. Sachin-Jigar excel in this genre as composers (as previously heard in their songs like Jeena Jeena, Badlapur and Toota Jo Kabhi Tara from Flying Jatt). I recently discovered that this song also has a rock version which has been sung by Ayushmann Khuarana. I am rather surprised that the creators decided to create a rock version of Haareya, as there it is not a Rock song in the first place. They would have been better of releasing a B side of the track, with Ayushmann’s vocals.

Musical Thoughts: Listening to Music via apps in the digital era

In the current digital era, it is much more common to find that people are listening to music via apps (streaming) on their smartphone, as opposed to either a CD or even mp3 player. With so many good music apps now available to choose from, it can also become a bit overwhelming when deciding to pick the right app which suits your choice of music. In this post, I will be sharing some of the top music apps for both Bollywood, Indie and Western music. This post is also a collaboration with Artist Aloud, and I shall be sharing some tips on some of the best ways to listen to new Indie Music via their app.
