Someone Like You : by Adele

ram H singhal

A track from Adele’s second album, ’21’, ‘Someone Like You’ has reached a huge audience, without synthesizers or Auto-Tune.  It was the first single of the 2010s to sell over one million copies in the UK.

I heard that you’re settled down
That you found a girl and you’re married now
I heard that your dreams came true
Guess she gave you things, I didn’t give to you
Old friend, why are you so shy?
Ain’t like you to hold back or hide from the light

I hate to turn up out of the blue, uninvited
But I couldn’t stay away, I couldn’t fight it
I had hoped you’d see my face
And that you’d be reminded that for me, it isn’t over

Love all.

‘Careless Whisper’

ram H singhal

Released in 1984, ‘Careless Whisper’ has become one of the best loved songs from the 80s simply because it is one of the greatest love songs ever written. An infectious rhythm coupled with a sexy saxophone melody and George’s heart-felt vocals announced to the world that this was a brilliant solo artist with tales to tell. As a result, ‘Careless Whisper’ reached  No.1 in nearly 25 countries and sold almost six million copies worldwide – not bad for a first solo single!

An artist of extraordinary talent – he is sadly missed.

Love all.

Heartbeat of universe

ram H singhal

Indian classical music is very scientific and spiritual at the same time ….. like it is for entertainment as well as for enlightenment ….. Listening to divine Dr. Ashwini Bhide-Deshpande …… Raga Bhimpalasi …… one remembers the times in town of Vrindavan ….. so beautiful are the buildings and ghats along the river …..  

Keshi Ghat is the principal bathing place in the town of Vrindavan. It is little east of Chir-ghat on the banks of the Yamuna. Keshi Ghat is one of the most beautiful ghats of Yamuna with stone inlaid palaces on the banks and massive Madanmohan temple visible in the backdrop. Here the sacred river Yamuna flows very graciously

Bhimpalasi(a.k.a.,BhimpilasiorBheempalasi) is aragwhich is very much associated with ahotIndian afternoon between 14 to 16:00 hrs… It has five notes ascending and seven notes descending.

Tears of an Angel

ram H singhal

Tears Of An Angel

Cover my eyes ,Cover my ears

Tell me these words are a lie

It can’t be true
That I’m losing you
The sun cannot fall from the sky

Can you hear heaven cry
Tears of an angel
Tears of an angel
Tears of an angel
Tears of an angel.

Stop every clock
Stars are in shock
The river will flow to the sea
I wont let you fly
I wont say goodbye
I wont let you slip away from me

Can you hear heaven cry
Tears of an angel
Tears of an angel
Tears of an angel
Tears of an angel.

So hold on
Be strong
Every day hope will grow
I’m here, don’t you fear

Little one don’t let go oh oh oh
Don’t let go oh oh oh
Don’t let go oh oh oh
Cover my eyes
Cover my ears
Tell me these…

Pankaj Mullick

 ये रातें
ये रातें ये मौसम ये हँसना हँसाना, ये रातें

मुझे, भूल जाना, इन्हें ना भुलाना भुलाना भुलाना
ये रातें

ये बहकी निगाहें
ये बहकी निगाहें, ये बहकी अदाएँ
ये बहकी निगाहें, ये बहकी अदाएँ
ये आँखों के काजल में डूबी घटाएँ

फ़िज़ा के, फ़िज़ा के लबों पर, फ़िज़ा के

चमन में, चमन में जो मिल के बनी है कहानी
हमारी मुहब्बत तुम्हारी जवानी, चमन में
ये दो गर्म साँसों का इक साथ आना
ये बदली का चलना ये बूंदों की रुमझुम
ये बदली का चलना ये बूंदों की रुमझुम

ये मस्ती का आलम ये खोए से हम तुम
तुम्हारा, तुम्हारा मेरे साथ ये गुनगुनाना

मुझे, भूल जाना, इन्हें ना भुलाना
भुलाना भुलाना
ये रातें

अलफ़ाज़
चमन – small garden

This is a beautiful song of Romantic Life , favorite since…
