Milliblog Weeklies – India’s only multilingual, weekly new music playlist. Week 240: YouTube | Spotify 10 songs this week. Only one is missing in the Spotify playlist – the new Peshawar Zalmi anthem, Zalmi Yama. Sajni, Dheeme Dheeme – Laapataa Ladies (Ram Sampath) – Hindi: Arijit sounds a bit different in Sajni, but as always, he’s a terrific asset to any song. And a dreamy melody like this is his usual backyard. Led by a gentle guitar backdrop, the tune works effortlessly! Shreya Ghoshal hits it out of the park in Dheeme Dheeme! Ram’s tune is a throwback to the older melodic style and Shreya ..read more

Milliblog Weeklies – India’s only multilingual, weekly new music playlist. Week 239: YouTube | Spotify Le Le Pangey – Dange (Sanjith Hegde) – Hindi: A pop single last week and a film song this week – Sanjith Hegde seems to be truly going places, and definitely beyond his Karnataka roots! I’m mighty impressed with his music composition skills – he seems almost like an Arijit Singh in terms of the mix of both skills, singing and composing. Le Le Pangey is a solid track – punchy, catchy, an excellent mix of his solo phrases and the ebullient chorus, and his signature soaring falsetto! The Tamil ..read more

Milliblog Weeklies – India’s only multilingual, weekly new music playlist. Week 238: YouTube | Spotify 14 songs this week and all the songs are available on both YouTube and Spotify. There are just 3 film songs out of the 14 and the sheer range of non-film music in this week’s playlist is astounding! Title song – Teri Baaton Mein Aisa Uljha Jiya (Raghav & Tanishk Bagchi) – Hindi: Tanishk spruces up Canadian-Indian singer Raghav’s 20-year-old song from his debut album ‘Storyteller’ (2004) and concocts a spritely new version, in his signature style. It’s good that they got Raghav to sing the ..read more

Milliblog Weeklies – India’s only multilingual, weekly new music playlist. Week 237: YouTube | Spotify 9 songs this week. The song from Blue Star isn’t available on Spotify yet, surprisingly! The rest of the songs are available on both YouTube and Spotify playlists. Chor – Justh (Hindi/Indipop): Oh wow, what a captivating song! The song’s poignant, philosophical lyrics and the highly involved way Justh sings reminded me of when Rabbi Shergill entered the music scene with Bulla Ki Jaana in 2004. As Justh amps up the music, the song takes on anthemic proportions when it ends with ‘Karde mujhe A ..read more

Milliblog Weeklies – India’s only multilingual, weekly new music playlist. Week 236: YouTube | Spotify Laal Peeli Akhiyaan – Teri Baaton Mein Aisa Uljha Jiya (Tanishk Bagchi) – Hindi: Tanishk uses (and the music video credits the hook) the famous Rajasthani folk song, ‘Jad Dekhu Banna Ri Lal Pili Akhiyan’ as his base for a hugely energetic remix of sorts. Romy’s singing and the punchy music keep the song consistently entertaining. Raat Akeli Thi – Merry Christmas (Pritam) – Hindi: The way the song opens, it felt like Agent Vinod’s ‘Raabta’ took the road not taken (sorry, Robert Frost), but Pr ..read more

Milliblog Weeklies – India’s only multilingual, weekly new music playlist. Week 235: YouTube | Spotify Back to the grind – another year, another Weeklies playlist! Considering the last Weeklies was on November 26th and there were very few songs all through December (not worth making a half-decent playlist of about 8-10 odd songs), there was some backlog from late November and December 2023. I did consider most of them while making my 2023 annual round-up barring ones that came after mid-December. In this Weeklies, all the songs are available on YouTube, while the Spotify playlist is missing on ..read more

Milliblog Weeklies – India’s only multilingual, weekly new music playlist. Week 234: YouTube | Spotify Back after another week’s break. A good set of songs! And yes, I did listen to Dunki’s Lutt Putt Gaya. And no, I didn’t like it. Felt like it made a mish-mash of Hirani-style music and Pritam-style music, ending up as an odd ‘Na ghar kaa na ghaaT kaa’. In Raahon Mein – The Archies (Shankar Ehsaan Loy) – Hindi: Javed Akhtar, and the musical trio + Arijit Singh! Perfect set of talents for this breezy rock number where Ehsaan and Loy’s musical style surfaces in a more pronounced ..read more

Milliblog Weeklies – India’s only multilingual, weekly new music playlist. Week 233: YouTube | Spotify 13 songs this week, and considering Zee Music has somehow put off its tiff with Spotify (which I discovered to my surprise, last week when I found songs from Zee’s Marathi soundtrack of Naal 2 on Spotify), all the songs are available on both playlists! Main Parwaana – Pippa (A R Rahman) – Hindi: From the music video, it’s quite evident that the director wanted a 1960s Shammi Kapoor-Mohd. Rafi-kind of song (though ‘Tu shamma, main hun mastana’ instead of ‘parwana’, was a surprise from Shellee ..read more

Milliblog Weeklies – India’s only multilingual, weekly new music playlist. Week 232: YouTube | Spotify A terrific musical week, at last, both in terms of quality and variety! 15 songs in this week’s playlist, 1 of which is missing in the Spotify playlist – Bhingori, from Naal 2. Also, for some bizarre reason, I couldn’t find the original Telugu version of ‘Ammaadi’ from Hi Nanna on Spotify, even though the Tamil version is present! Have added the Tamil version of the song in my playlist. Va Va Voom – The Archies (Shankar Ehsaan Loy) – Hindi: While I continue to be completely zapped that someo ..read more

Milliblog Weeklies – India’s only multilingual, weekly new music playlist. Week 231: YouTube | Spotify Back after 2 weeks, so a packed 19 songs playlist this week. The YouTube playlist has all the songs, while Spotify is missing one song – Ilayaraja’s song from Ninaivellam Neeyada! It’s a lovely song, so please don’t miss it in the YouTube playlist. Ordinary Person, I’m Scared – Leo (Anirudh) – Tamil/English: Oh yes, there are generous strains of Otnicka’s ‘Where Are You’ in Ordinary Person and I wish Anirudh (and Sony Music) had sought permission officially while regurgitating the sound. Wha ..read more
