My Favourite cover songs ~ Part 3

Returning back to my favourite cover songs feature with part 3, and this time, I will be talking about the song ‘Without You’.

‘Without You’ is a song which is originally sung by singer Harry Nilsson. The song had released in 1972 and was later famously covered by diva Mariah Carey in 1993. My favourite version of the song is Mariah’s version. She has performed the song on such a high level, that it is almost hard to ignore the emotionally charged strength in her performance.

Bollywood Music: Arya Entertainment presents ‘Albeliya’

It gives me great pleasure in writing this as my good friend and excellent Bollywood rapper/Musician Arya Acharya presents his first song ‘Albeliya’ from his company ‘Arya Entertainment’.

If you pay close attention to your Bollywood Music, you will know that Arya has been rapping in Bollywood songs way before todays current rappers. He has primarily worked with the multi talented Himesh Reshammiya in songs such as ‘Chhed De Pyar Di Baat’ (Aap Kaa Surroor) and more recently ‘Punjabi Mast’ (Action Jackson).

My latest Piano Solo ‘Aap Se Mausiiquii’ teaser

My favourite musician Himesh Reshammiya is back with the album trailer of his brand new album ‘Aap Se Mausiiquii‘ (my Music is Because of You). Of course, I could not help but learn a bit of the song on the piano :o)

From the album trailer, we can hear that the song is largely piano based. This has made my day as the piano is hardly given centre stage in Bollywood songs these days!

I have learnt the intro/verse/chorus of the song which you can hear below:

I am of course waiting for the full song to release and I will then learn to play the beautiful composition.

As always, I appreciate any feedback!
