My favourite Golden Oldie songs: World of Our Own by Westlife

My favourite golden oldie for the month of June, is World of Our Own by Westlife. Since my blog post about the boyband phenomenon, I have been listening to Westlife songs once again, and I realised just how much I loved World of Our Own.

The song was their first attempt at cracking the United States and I do believe that the song did reasonably well there, as it does have a very strong Backstreet Boys vibe to it. The boys look very stylish and my favourite Westlifer Nicky Byrne, gave all of us a huge surprise in the video, when he revealed that he had chopped off his lovely locks! The song is the title track of their third studio album.

Check out the video below and do let me know if this is one of your favourite old songs too!

My favourite Golden Oldie song: Not That Kind ~ Anastacia

We have reached that time of the month where I share one of my favourite golden oldie songs. Last month I chose a Bollywood golden oldie Oodhli Chunariya from the Bollywood film Pyar Kiya Toh Darna Kya, and this month, I will be sharing another Western golden oldie song which is Not That Kind by one of my favourite female musicians Anastacia.

Not That Kind ~ Anastacia

Not That Kind is such a groovy song, that is sure to make you want to sing a long with it and make all of us ladies very proud of ‘Girl Power’. I clearly remember the time when the song released, and that was when I saw Anastacia for the first time. I felt in awe of her amazingly powerful vocals, and also I was majorly impressed with her composing skills.

On 22nd April, the gorgeous Anastacia replied to my tweet about this post here:

We are at that time of the month where I share one of my favourite golden oldie songs. Last month, I shared a Western song favourite which was Holding Back the Years by one of my all time favourite bands, Simply Red. This month, I have decided to share one of my favourite Bollywood songs in order to bring some variety and also to show how diverse my musical choices can be!

So, this month my favourite golden oldie is my favourite Bollywood Music composer’s debut composition, the melodious Oodhli Chunariya from the film Pyar Kiya Toh Darna Kya.

Singers: Alka Yagnik and Kumar Sanu

My favourite Golden Oldies: Holding Back the Years ~ Simply Red

As the sound of Music continues to change so quickly every year, I find more and more people are going back and are listening to their favourite old songs, especially if they are not enjoying the current Music trends. This has given me the idea of sharing some of my favourite golden oldies here at Girl at the Piano. This will be a new monthly feature at my blog! I will share both Western and Bollywood songs, in this new feature. As I always say, Old is Gold!

The first golden oldie that I will be sharing is from one of my most favourite bands. Those close to me know that Simply Red have played a very important part in my life Music wise. Ever since I began listening to Music, I started listening to and appreciating their songs.

The song of theirs that I am sharing today, is Holding Back the Years from the Picture Book album. Holding Back the Years is an emotional take on one’s childhood and Mick Hucknall has sung and composed the song to true perfection. Enjoy the song below and do share your favourite golden oldie in the comments!
