Pudhu Vellai Mazhai...

Cannot explain how much I love this ARR masterpiece! After so many years, it still sounds so captivating!!! Have always wanted to sing this one but never did because of my language limitations :D The hindi version didn't appeal to me much because everytime a Tamil song is re-done in Hindi, the lyrics are not good enough!

This is my first attempt at a Tamil song so please bear with the diction issues :-) Thanks a lot Vishak for singing this one with me. As I always tell u, u are so pitch perfect!!!

This one goes out to my friends, Sangita & Sendill for being such awesome friends!!!

Genda Phool...

I have started experimenting with my new recording gear and this is first song I picked. This is a favorite of my dear friend Sumita and so I sang it for her :-)

I like this song for the simplicity and the raw feel to it. I think ARR has done a brilliant job of making a folk song so appealing! When I first heard the song, I understood all of it except for the comparison of Sasural to “Genda Phool”. When I looked it up, I found this on the web :-)

“Genda Phool (Marigold) is a complex flower because its actually an inflorescence, which, by definition, is a complicated arrangement of flowers on a branch. So in the song, the girl compares her Sasural to this flower, because of all the complex relationships she shares with her Saans (Mum-in-law), Devar (Bro-in-law) and Nanand (Sis-in-law). And she says, in spite of all the troubles, she loves being there for the love of her husband.”

Here is my attempt at this song. Thanks a lot, George, for all the mixing tips!

Song: Genda Phool
Film: Delhi-6
Music – A R Rahman

Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas...

Prakash and I celebrate our 7th wedding anniversary tomorrow, on the 14th of Dec. On this occasion I wanted to sing something of his choice for a change :-) He is a Kishore Kumar fan and so I chose to sing something from his stable.

This song brings back a lot of wonderful memories. Prakash is not much of a singer and he just cannot remember the lyrics of a song! This was one of the very few exceptions. He used to sing (read recite :P) this one to me during our dating days, 10 yrs ago :-) And to this date, we have this song on our iPhones and love listening to it!

So sweetheart, this one is for u, for being there for me always no matter what, for putting up with my tantrums, for not complaining about my cooking ever, for supporting my music even though you are not into it, for buying me the Mac, the Logic Studio and last but not the least, for surprising me with the Apogee Duet today! You rock! And even though the lyrics of this song don’t make much sense with a female singer singing it, one line that makes perfect sense is “Pal pal dil ke paas….tum rehte ho….” :-)

Aaiye Meherbaan...

Really wanted to sing something today for a change. Picked this classic by O.P.Nayyar & Asha Bhonsle, with the ravishing Madhubala on screen.

Kuch Khaas Hai...

Finally I get to upload a song! First it was a month long of stress at work, then a 3 week long India trip, and then a bad stint of cold and cough with a terribly nasal voice which kept me away from singing!

This is one of my very favorite songs from Fashion, the other one being Mar Jaawaan. I could not think of anyone else other than George to sing this with. I think he is our very own Mohit Chauhan :-) Hope you all like our attempt.

Song: Fashion
Music: Salim Merchant
Orig Singers: Neha Bhasin, Mohit Chauhan
