Set fire to your music




Thought that I'd share some good new music so that you guys can explore more if you're bored listening to your collection. Here's my first recommendation. Listen to "Set fire to the rain" by Adele-a song which I have become obsessed with listening ,singing these days.Reminds me of my crazy days, when I would go crazy listening to the same song infinite number of times,driving others nuts.Adele is running on top of my music list these days as she is on the billboard.
Though I no more play music, exploring "new" music is something I do everyday and dwelling more into the music of the bands of which I had heard one or two songs is something I remain perenially obsessed with.If you're a great fan of alternative/new wave music of the 80s or want to check out some good bands apart from the usual stuff, The Cure, The Smiths,Crowded house, INXS, When in Rome,Eurthymics, Alphaville are some of the bands you need to have in your collection.

If you're looking for some hip hop,listen to FloRida(pronounced as Flo-Rider).Set aside the fact that most of his songs/videos are only about club,cars,splurging money,hot women shaking their asses on the dance floors and he banging them later,he makes really peppy music, something that will make you wanna dance or sing. Nicki Minaj is another artist who's worth looking out for.

If you don't want to listen to all this so-called noise and want some peaceful,soulful music, Vangelis is the artist for you. His "Conquest of Paradise" remains one of my favorite songs.

So what have you been listening to lately? Any obsessions ? Let me know a few bands/artists which you think are worth exploring more.

P.S.- Since all of you complain that I hardly post any article here, this was my contribution. ;)

How about posting links too? Especially for music retards like me!
Adele, well, I have been hearing loads about her songs.. she has been the top reccos in my TL on twitter!!!

But, I am more of a hindi song person, and my latest obsession are the dancing numbers I am choreographing for my brother's wedding!
Oye hoooyeee!!!
I agree,even I was obsessed with the songs of Meri brother ki dhulan for sometime. I like "Choomanatar" the most, followed by the title song and then the others.Though I have heard that people like "Dhunki" the most. Really brilliant music by Sohail Sen .Must appreciate the freshness in music, off beat lyrics and great singing by all especially KK and Benny Dayal.

This a distress call to all TWM folks. This has been the longest duration of inactivity for TWM. So is it that we are all too busy or have all of us hit the writer's block. Let's break the spell of inactivity....HOW?? WHAT SHOULD I WRITE ABOUT?? I have an incomplete draft, shall I post that? May be I will do a recap of the past few days..No mood to write paragraphs.. Connect the dots yourself.. * Kaminey - Movie was good, the ending could have been better..The bong mafia coming with a long gun to the fight scene was really comic..Fahid Kapoor ki acting mast thi..waifey aap log ye movie dekhey kya?? * Books - Finally I read the book Love Story by Erich Segal..Hmmm the story is good but the effect of the classic book has not yet got into me..Meanwhile I am also reading 'The Great Indian Novel' by Shashi Tharoor..I will surely recommend this book..Tharoor has splendidly blended the tales from Mahabharata into the modern Indian history.. *Movies - I watched 'Littl

"Trip Kela" season is back!!

"We had joy,we had fun,we had trip kelas every season but the things we used to plan were seasons out of time" Wow!! Seems like the "Kela" season is in the air again!! Why is it that whenever WE plan something ,something has to go wrong!! On our maiden trip to Goa, I had to back out coz my dad was just outta hospital.So I had to be at home.Before our second trip,we had so much discussion regarding a "reunion" trip to Darjeeling during Convo.What happened was evrybody backing out the last month.Raj said that he has already booked tickets for home.Rathz,supposedly, didn't get any tickets for returning to Kolkatta from Cuttack & there I was in Kol doing nothing.Though finally we did go to Digha & the trip was gud BUT our unbeaten record of "Flop Plans" continued. Now, we are probably gonna add an another feather in the cap.The highly anticipated Goa trip which had created so much ripples across the cyberspace(blog,gmail & orkut)

And The Warrior Returns...

Whoa! They call me a professional blogger and I haven't been able to write a single word for any of my personal blogs, be it TWM :: Online , Shayon's Labyrinth or even Timeless Imagination . I guess, that's what happens when all you do, during the day, is blog and then when you come back home, WarCraft is the only reason that inspires you to open up your laptop's lid and hit the power button!   I wouldn't really say that I am stressed out, thanks to my new job as the Chief Editor of WATBlog , one of country's leading advertising and technology blogs. After all, how many have gotten the opportunity and luck (this is something very rare in my destiny) to convert their hobby, their love, into a profession? The down side is, WAT is a startup, in essence. It just turned 2 , the month I joined, and we have an employee strength of just 12. Yes, you read that right. So, we realize that there is a lot of potential in the market and since our niche is very nascent, it
