New Music Monday: Dil Kya Kare by the fantastic four SANAM

This weeks new Music Monday release is the latest single from the fantastic four SANAM! Regular readers, will know that I always feature new releases from India’s popular band SANAM here at the blog.

Their latest release is what they call a #SANAMrendition and is their take on the retro classic Dil Kya Kare from the Bollywood film Julie. The video shows highlights from the bands recent concerts, including Amsterdam which is also where the majority of the video has been shot. The video also gives major boy band vibes, as we get to see behind the scene clips and masti of the fabulous four! These parts of the video remind me of Westlife’s video When You’re Looking Like That.

My live music experiences part 1: Western Music concerts

I recently had the pleasure of attending the ARRahman concert at Wembley arena in July, and as I was attending a concert after a long time, it made me think about all of the concerts that I have been to so far. I thought it would be a great idea to share my experience of attending these concerts, here at the blog and so I have decided to split them into Western Music and Bollywood Music categories. In this post, I shall talk about my Western Music concert experiences.

I was only 8 years old when I attended my first live concert at Wembley Stadium, which was for the legend Michael Jackson during his Dangerous tour in 1992. I went with my family and unfortunately te concert got cancelled the first time round, and so we went again on the re-scheduled date. The atmosphere was electric to say the least, and as I was only 8 years old, I was totally overwhelmed with the level of the music, and audience noise but I am extremely grateful to this day, that I had the opportunity to witness a legend and Music icon like MJ, perform live.

My favourite Golden Oldie: Go Your Own Way ~ Fleetwood Mac

This month, my favourite golden oldie song is the iconic Go Your Own Way by Fleetwood Mac. I find myself constantly re-listening to the epic Rumours album, and this is definitely one of my most favourite tracks from the album.

While I have taken a liking to the Music of the song a lot more than the lyrics, there will be many who appreciate the songs lyrics more, which talk about being part of a difficult relationship. Lyndsey Buckingham’s strong vocals against the epic rock guitar, is what sets this song apart and makes Rumours one of the most finest rock albums ever!

Go Your Own Way – Fleetwood Mac

Make it a point to listen to this classic song, as well as the entire Rumours album, if you truly consider yourself to be a Music lover. You will not be disappointed!

New Music Monday: Shama Hai Jali ~ SANAM

This weeks new Music Monday release, is a patriotic one from the band SANAM. The song Shama Hai Jali is an original release, and is in aid of India’s independence day. The song is aiming to give the message of hope for a better country.

The video has been shot in a different style, as compared to previous videos from the band, and we are also seeing them without their musical instruments this time. While watching the video, you can clearly tell just how passionate the boys are about their country, and the seriousness reflects in the composition of the song too, which I feel is one of their best original compositions so far. They have shown people from all backgrounds whilst keeping the air of patriotism strong. It is also a nice touch to see the Hindi-English subtitles that have been added to the video, as this may help the song reach a wider audience.

Check out the video below and let me know if the song touched you too!

New Music Monday: Caught in the Middle by Anastacia

This week, I am sharing the Music video of the brand new single Caught in the Middle by Anastacia. Anastacia is one of my all-time favourite female artists, and this new single is taken from her forthcoming album Evolution.

Her last album was Resurrection which released in 2015. Her new song Caught in the Middle, is not your typical Anastacia song, yet it has a catchy hookline and melody, and presents the strength of her powerful vocals. The video has a mysterious/fantasy vibe to it, and it flows with the song very well. I love Anastacia’s outfits in it, and it is also really cool to see her riding a horse!

The song talks about a difficult point in a relationship. I know it will definitely become a favourite of mine, and I cannot wait to listen to the full album of Evolution. Check out the video of Caught in the Middle below and do share your thoughts about the track!

New Music Monday: Life’s about to get Good – Shania Twain

This weeks new Music Monday post features one of my all-time favourite female artists Shania Twain. I do love a bit of country Music, and luckily for me, Shania is back with her brand new album aptly titled Now.

She recently released a track from the album which is called Life’s about to get Good. The song is a feel good tune with a catchy hookline, happy beats and motivational lyrics. The song primarily talks about moving on after a heartbreak/broken relationship. The video reflects the songs lyrics in a happier light, as we see a team of people aiming to give Shania a makeover in preparation for the good that is about to come her way.

The song has definitely become a new favourite of mine, and I can’t wait to listen to the rest of the album when it releases!

Check out the video below and let me know what you think about this weeks new Music Monday!

New Music Monday: Lakshya ~ SANAM

I always love writing a new Music Monday blog post, and this weeks release is a very special one. It is the latest rendition from the band SANAM and they have covered the title track of the film Lakshya.

However, this is not an ordinary release as it is Music for a Cause as the boys are supporting a very important campaign #NoWorldWithoutGirls

Having over 2 million subscribers at their YouTube channel, it is no surprise that they are now being recognised by brands like eBay who have also collaborated with them in their latest release.

Check out the video of Lakshya below which features a very important message.

My favourite Golden Oldie: Aashiq Banaya Aapne

It’s that day of the month, where I share one of my favourite golden oldie songs and this months choice is a Bollywood song. My choice of Bollywood song coincides nicely with the fact that the singer/composer of the song will be celebrating their birthday this month! The song in question is the very popular Aashiq Banaya Apne title track remix.

Aashiq Banaya Aapne – remix

Sharing a few fun facts from my perspective, about when I first saw the video of this magical song. I had just started watching the popular series SaReGaMaPa Challenge 2005 where Himeshji was the mentor of Rock Gharana. He was fast becoming my favourite mentor due to the way he presented himself, and how he would give even a negative comment, in a kind and positive way. I naturally did a double take when I saw him in the remix video of Aashiq Banaya Aapne and after that, as they say, the rest is history! Historic to be precise 😉

The song is almost 10 years old but is an iconic and landmark song of Himeshji’s career. It also added a spark to Music videos helping the promotion of a Bollywood film. Let me know if Aashiq Banaya Aapne also features in your favourites list!
