Asha Bhosle - Baithe Hain Kya Usike Paas.mp3 ★★★★★
4:58secs; 6.82MB
Hindi|Filmi|Oldie

Taken from the 1967 Hindi thriller and composed by S. D. Burman.

Film and soundtrack recommended!


Album|Film: Bhoot Bungla; 192kbps; 1965
02 - Manna Dey - Aao Twist Karen.mp3 ★★★★
4:16secs; 5.86MB
Hindi|Filmi|Oldie

'Bhoot Bungla' literally translates into English as 'Ghost House' though 'Haunted House' is probably more accurate. R. D. Burman who also starred in the film composed the music.

NB. bungla|bangla is the Hindi word for the Bengali style of single storey house; it also happens to be where the English word bungalow [bungla-low] is derived from. Interesting~

Asha Bhosle - Aaj Ki Raat.mp3 ★★★★★
6:11secs; 8.49MB
Hindi|Filmi|Oldie

R. D. Burman again. The film starred Sanjeev Kumar and Jaya Bhaduri|Bachchan.

'Anamika' means something along the lines of independent woman. It's hard to explain, but basically in Hindu culture your name is supposed to represent predetermined qualities already within your being. With a name like Anamika in affect you don't have a name essentially because you're seen as someone who determines their own future. I hope that makes sense!

Anyway there were a number of hit songs from the film; I picked this out for no particular reason. The track translates into English as 'Tonight's The Night'.


Album|Film: Caravan; 192kbps; 1971

The 70s were definitely when R. D. Burman was at his peak, this just happens to be yet another awesome soundtrack.

Both films are based on the 1905 Urdu novel 'Umrao Jaan Ada', written by Mirza Mohammed Haadi Ruswa, and though the latter is not a remake of the former comparisons will almost certainly be made [esp. in regards to the scores, as the 1981 version, rightly so, has some of the most memorable numbers in filmi history].

The album is definitely a grower with 'Salaam' probably being the most memorable track on there - I imagine it'll become even more so with the accompanying mujra performance.

The lyrics are solid throughout, but what else would you expect from Javed Akhtar, and the compositions aren't bad either. Anu Malik does capture the mood and ambiance of the time, but did he really need to release Animal Malik on us? My word, she should to be put down!

Overall, the music isn't bad, but it still doesn't measure up to Khayyam's original. Saying that I am still very much looking forward to the film.

Directed by Farhan Akhtar and starring Shahrukh Khan, Priyanka Chopra, Arjun Rampal and Kareena Kapoor, 'Don - The Chase Begins Again' is a remake of the classic 1978 Amitabh Bachchan and Zeenat Aman film 'Don' and releases later this year.

If you're a fan of the original I think you'll probably be pleasantly surprised by this album - it's not brilliant, but it's not bad either.

Came across this article a while back about the popularity of Hindi cinema in 1960s Greece where over a hundred Greek adaptations of filmi songs were made.

You can hear a couple of these below:


Album|Film: Ujala; 1959
Hindi|Filmi|Oldie

Lata Mangeshkar and Mukesh - Duniya Walon Se Door.mp3 ★★★★½

2:45secs; 128kbps; 2.52MB

NB. though the Greek versions are in effect covers, lyrically they don't coincide with the Hindi originals.

Lata Mangeshkar and Manna Dey - Jhoomta Mausam.mp3 ★★★★
4:18secs; 128kbps; 3.94MB

Mihalis Menidiates - Ligho, Ligho Tha Me Sinithisies.mp3 ★★★★

2:47secs; 128kbps; 2.55MB

YSI: Manna Dey - Ab Kahan Jayen Hum.mp3 ★★★½
3:32secs; 128kbps; 3.25MB

Couldn't find the Greek version, but had the original so thought I'd upload it along with the other two tracks from 'Ujala' above.

Don't have the video or single, but here's a link to the new Rishi Rich, Jay Sean & Juggy D track 'Push It Up [Aaja Kurieh]' - how original? -_-; Sounds like rehashed crap to me, esp. as these guys are supposed to be representing the mainstream scene over here. Jay Sean's looking pretty lean though...

Album|Film: Banaras - A Mystic Love Story; 2006
Album Rating: ★★★
Hindi|Filmi

Slightly different from the usual Bollywood fair and all the better for it. It has it's masala numbers ['Kitna Pyar' and 'Ishq Mein', which I imagine will become the masses' favourites if they haven't already], but having a story based around the city Varanasi, you also get a soundtrack with strong classical and spiritual leanings.

01 - Himesh Reshammiya - Kitna Pyar Kartein Hain.mp3 ★★★★½
6:22secs; 160kbps; 7.29MB

There are two versions of this track - as do a few of the others featured on here - the other has Alka on vocal.

Expect a re-release featuring a couple of extra tracks to follow... *pencils in* 'Whatever It Takes' 6th March 2006 XD


Album: Infinite Love
02 - Mira Veda - Tell Me ★★★★
3:53secs; 128kbps; 3.57MB; 2003
English-Hindi|R&B|Soul

Mira works out of the States, but grew up in Canada and was actually born in India, and you can see her mixed cultural upbringing reflected in her music. This track is taken from her debut album.

Someone to definitely watch out for! She is currently working on her follow-up album and hosts a talk show on San Franciso radio station DesiHitsRadio.

An iconic film, but you still can't hide the fact that the soundtrack is somewhat average. This is easily the best track from it.

NB neither version appears on the Vendetta soundtrack [the latter due to copyright issues].

She is also one of, if not, the most successful cross-over British Asian female singer to come out of the UK, having featured on numerous film soundtracks ['Closer', 'Tomb Raider: Cradle Of Life', 'Charlie's Angels I'...], various TV commercials and serials. Badar has also worked on a number of Bollywood films like 'Yuva' and 'Zubeidaa'.

Album: NA
Beenie Man feat. Raje Shwari - Below the Waist.mp3 ★★★★½
4:21secs; 128kbps; 3.99MB; NA
English-Hindi|Reggae

Raje Shwari is a Philadelphia based singer, though her family are originally from Gujarat, India. She's probably most credited for singing on the Timbaland and Magoo track 'Indian Flute', but has also worked with artists such as Jay-Z, Nas and Pharrell Williams.

Shwari is currently unsigned having acrimoniously split from the Timberland camp.


Album: NA
Niraj Chag - The Snake.mp3 ★★★★★
2:40secs; 160kbps; 3.07MB; 2006
Instrumental|Asian Underground|Fusion

Niraj is a London-based producer and composer, and was signed to Outcaste|Relentless Records [of Badmarsh & Shri and Nitin Sawhney fame]. He is currently working on his new album, 'Along the Dusty Road' - and from the tracks I've heard so far is really good! Look out for the Bangla track 'Khwaab' [you can hear the Hindi version on the website, where this track is also available for free].

The album is out on the 15th May 2006 [UK].


Album: Dark & Direct
01 - Pehli War.mp3 ★★★★★
5:51secs; 128kbps; 5.35MB; 2002
English-Punjabi|Popular|R&B

This track is taken from Bally's third solo album - if you can call then that. They usually have one track on them - 'Dark & Direct' and is the follow up to the 1997 smash 'Live & Direct' [how original - there's another called 'Dark & Dangerous' too. I think it had something to do with his old record label, moviebox, though].

Bally is also the other half [Jassi Sidhu having left] of the Birmingham based group B21.


Album|Film: Green State
09 - Thievery Corporation - Lebanese Blonde.mp3 ★★★★½
4:47secs; 128kbps; 4.39MB; 2004
English|Electronica|Soundtrack

Consisting of Rob Garza and Eric Hilton, Thievery Corporation, are a production team based out of Washington DC.

This track originally featured on their 2000 album 'The Mirror Conspiracy ' and features Pam Bricker on vocals. It has an acid jazz feel about it.


Album: G; 2005
English-Hindi|Popular

I think the guy is from Karnataka State, India, but that's about all I know about him. He is a famous Bollywood choreographer though and has worked on films like 'Dum' [2003] and 'Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam' [1999]. This is his first foray into music.

01 - Main Deewana.mp3 ★★★★
5:36secs; 160kbps; 6.41MB

The rap at the end of this track is atrocious. The G mix of this is also rubbish.

03 - Zindagi.mp3 ★★★★★
4:22secs; 128kbps; 3.99MB


Single: Cowboy Film
02 - Taz feat. Sway Da'Safo, Sharkie and Biggz - Cowboys & Indians [Panjabi Hit Squad Remix].mp3 ★★★★
English-Hindi|UK Hip Hop
4:34secs; 160kbps; 5.24MB; 2005

Taz is currently signed to Def Jam UK and follows on from the successes of other UK Hip Hop artists like Wiley and Dizzee Rascal to lift the quality of the scene.

The original is taken from his debut album 'Analyse This' and is available to download from his myspace page.


Album|Soundtrack: Humko Tumse Pyaar Hai; 2005
Album Rating: ★★★★
Hindi|Filmi|Popular

The film basically sticks to the tried-and-tested Bollywood formula and as such is nothing new. It's still a solid album though and, for once, isn't just full of remixes - one of the reasons why maybe it didn't too well?

04 - Sukhwinder Singh and Sapna Awasthi - Dhola Aayo Re.mp3 ★★★★
4:41secs; 160kbps; 5.41MB

I read somewhere Richa Sharma actually sung lead female vocal, but it's credited to Sapna Awasthi for some reason. Iunno. I like the intro to this song. It's a decent up-tempo track.

07 - Alka Yagnik and Udit Narayan - Bajne Lage Hain.mp3 ★★★★
5:02secs; 128kbps; 4.61MB

08 - Alka Yagnik and Anand Raj Anand - Humko Tumse Pyar Hai [sad].mp3 ★★★★
3.13secs; 128kbps; 2.94MB

The original isn't bad either. You'll find it below to download.


Album: MIDIval Times; 2005
Album Rating: ★★★★
English-Hindi|Asian Massive|Electronica|Fusion

I've picked out my favourites from the album, though it's solid all the way through, 'Piya', for example, is another a heavy track...

04 - 136.mp3 ★★★★★
6:37secs; 184kbps; 8.83MB

Awesome ending.

YSI: 08 - Kesariya.mp3 ★★★★
7:19secs; 128kbps; 6.71MB

YSI: 09 - MIDIval PunditZ featuring Kailash Kher - Ali.mp3 ★★★★½
6:34secs; 192kbps; 9.02MB

YSI: MIDIval PunditZ - MIDIval Times.zip - the rest...
58MB

YSI: Humko Tumse Pyaar Hai - Various Artists.zip - the rest...
28.8MB

PS I'll be taking a break from the site for a couple of weeks as I do not have the time to update it.
