Best of Slow Melodious and Soulful songs – Songs 20 to 11

April 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) 🙂

  1. Thank you for mentioning my post ans song. I’ll listen carefully to the other songs you mention. It seems we both have a passion for music.

  2. Yes, actually this tag was done so that I could listen to the best of melodious songs from accross the world. I am more than happy with the list I have right now. I do have a passion for listening to the best music always but I am not able to play an instrument – though I had given it a try!

    • In India you have a lot of wonderful instruments. I think I was a good guitarist, classical and modern, from 12 until 25. But then I fell in love with piano so now I don’t play well neither of them. I should have stuck with guitar. Now I basically listen to music and it is enough for me. I really adore music of any kind. Thanks for the good selection you offer.

  3. Its really interesting what you posted here.

    • It was also tough to select just 20 songs out of so many, but I thought since many of us don’t have the time to go through all the individual posts, I would collect the best songs that I liked and post it. It was useful to me as well 🙂

  4. ah feels good to find a fellow superhit muqabla fan

    • I used to even count how many episodes of Superhit Muquabla I missed in a few years! It was through that program that I developed interest in Hindi songs and eventually learnt the language too.

  6. I used to love those episodes of superhit muquabla.I have done two posts on the old dd serials title songs in my blog.

  7. I think I saw that post. I watched some selective title songs that I liked – Mongli etc. It brings back the old memories – With so many channels around these days, we are not having programs like that!! And we keep accusing the Govt. run institutions!

  9. Thanks a lot for the link to the Bengali song. I love that song very much. I will be back to listen to others.As u said it is 12.
    And I enjoyed your comment at my post. 🙂

    • Yeah, the Rabindro sangeet is indeed very nice. I was wondering why I have never heard those songs before! Anyways, the doors are opening now. So, why don’t you also do this tag?

  10. Dear DI,

    I am terribly sorry I could not make it to send you some nice Russian songs…:(
    If you dont mind I can still do it a bit later and you can just add it to the post.

  11. Thanks for the list, DI!!

  12. I really liked the Chinese and the German song. The Chinese song was amazing, even though they were repeating the same lines. 🙂

    • Actually I wanted to keep the Chinese song in a slightly higher ranking, but since I guessed that the first song will be watched by most of the people, it is at No. 20 and I loved it the first time I heard!

  13. 🙂 will listen when I find the time 😀

    • Thanks for your frank comment, that’s why my first line in the post says so.

  14. The collection is good. Thanks for putting them all here in a tag! I actually liked that German song, though the words went right above my head. 🙂

    Keep Blogging!

    • Music has no words, unless you are a keen follower of the lyrics 🙂

  15. u’ve given me a good list. ‘l try to do as much justice as possible. depends upon my data usage actually!

    • Well, 10 more songs are coming up which may be even more tempting….

      Destination Infinity

      • u sure know how to keep a good suspense!

  16. thanks DI for the post – I enjoyed most of the songs, especially the carla bruni one…that was the best..

  17. Thanks a ton for listening to them! So many read the post but don’t listen to the songs. Initially, I didn’t like that French song. But when I heard it one more time, I liked it and the next time, I was hooked on to it!

    Destination Infinity

  18. At last I listened to ALL the songs. Some twice or thrice, to get registered! Sometimes, we don’t like some songs, initially and when we are MADE to hear it again and again, our ears get used to it and we start recognizing the song. I loved the Rabindra Sangeeth, which I am familiar with already, so that was easy! In other languages, like the Chinese song, which I started playing when I was doing household work too! It is not hard to guess about the Kannada songs…I love them all! Thanks and waiting for the next batch!

    • Thanks so much for listening to all the songs. I have kept the best songs for the next post, hope you will like that too…
