Found a few interesting/less known "Bollywood Rock" songs (Power Ballads actually), with excellent guitar play:





This one is from a Kannada movie called PSYCHO. Music/singing by Raghu Dixit

Something like this happened in a Kannada movie well before most BHPians were born.

Here is SP Balasubramanian in 1976, a Sandalwood Rock song.

Found couple of documentaries from 'Films Division' on Indian classical vocalists.

1. Pandit Kumar Gandharva: Released in 2005, produced and directed by Dr. Jabbar Patel.



2. Pandit Bhimsen Joshi: mostly from mid-nineties, produced and directed by Gulzar. On the automotive connect, he used to drive his cars himself and used to prefer 'thick metal sheets', something that Pune BHPians 'neoonwheels' and 'Siddy' would be pleased to hear.



Both documentaries are more than an hour long, watch in leisure time.
I never attended any of their concerts, however have listened to them on radio quite often. Coincidentally, a recent radio program made me aware of documentary on Pt. Bhimsen Joshi and then I searched for Pt. Kumar Gandharva.

I discovered a new voice this week, very beautiful voice. Featuring a Sanskrit and Tamil song by Sivasri Skandaprasad. I don't understand both languages, but I can enjoy the music.

Not a Rock Song but I just love the initial 50 seconds of guitar play. Sad that the recording doesn't sound good- if only somebody can recreate the Guitar bit exactly as is in High Resolution it would be a treat to listen.

Best OST I ever heard. From the famous French movie Amelie (2001) by Yann Tiersen.



But nothing really beats Moonlight Sonata By Beethoven

Tributes to the chirpy and trendsetting Ronnie Spector (1943-2022) lead singer of The Ronettes, who passed away on 12.01.22 succumbing to cancer.

Ronnie Spector, the lead singer of the all girl group(a sister and a cousin)The Ronettes, has passed away at age 78. The Ronettes paved the way for more all girl pop groups. They tasted mega success with a few hit singles in the 1960's and are best known for their signature hit "Be My Baby". This song was used in the film "Dirty Dancing" of the 1980's in its opening scenes. The song was also used in the film "Mean Streets" opening scenes.

The Ronettes accompanied The Beatles and The Rolling Stones during their US concerts. Ronnie married The Ronettes producer Phil Spector, but the marriage ended in 1974. She married manager Jonathan Greenfield soon after and they had two sons. A symbol of the 1960's music, beehive hairstyle, mascara and tight-fit wears, Ronnie the trendsetter will be sadly missed.

Featured here is the greatest hit of their career:-

After a long time... I have become a big fan of this lady. Her vocal control is amazing.

I don't know a single word of Marathi and I don't believe in god. However I really love Marathi devotional poetry (abhangs). In fact, I generally love devotional music of any religion and in any language.

That should not be surprising to folks how know the history of music. Prior to 20th century, about 99% of music was of devotional kind. If you steer clear of devotional music, you will be missing out on a huge collection of compositions that survived centuries. Well, those compositions survived so long and still available to us, only because they are so good.

With that, let me share my current favourite abhang...

This immediately reminded me of "maanava mooLe mamsada taDike..." song from the Kannada movie Bhakta Kumbara.

Oh, Bhakta Kumbara is a very old favorite from the 70s. Although I prefer "Yeli Mareyaade" over "maanava mooLe mamsada taDike...". I like the super intensity of this one:



Every time I hear it, I get goose bumps, the hairs on the forearm rise...
