Best of Slow Melodious and Soulful songs – Songs 20 to 11April 12, 2009
Please go ahead only if you can spend one hour for pure enjoyment listening to some of the best songs from across the world.
This is a result of the Slow Melodious and Soulful Songs Tag which was done recently by many of you. Since I had listened to most of the songs (by bloggers whom I had tagged directly) and also some more bloggers who were tagged by them (I was not able to track this part fully though).
Love at first hearing:
Just like love at first sight, there were some songs that I loved the very first time that I listened to them. I have collected the best 20 of such songs which were recommended by my fellow bloggers and have presented them in this post and the next one. Since the theme is love at first hearing, I have not considered certain languages in which the songs are already familiar to me (Tamil, Telugu) and I have not considered certain languages in which songs are familiar to most of the bloggers (Hindi, English) as I wanted this musical experience to be a love at first hearing to most of you.
So go ahead and enjoy (The rating is my own and remember that tastes differ based on a lot of factors) 🙂
