Top 10 Slow Melodious and Soulful Songs

April 23, 2009

As mentioned in the previous post Best of Slow Melodious and Soulful Songs(Songs 20 – 11), please go ahead only if you can spend around one hour for pure enjoyment listening to some of the best songs from around the world.

And as mentioned in the earlier post, this selection is based on a theme – Love at first hearing, and hence I have not included the songs from popular languages like English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu. I want this to be a Love at first hearing experience to you too.

This is a result of a Tag on Slow Melodious and Soulful Songs where I requested my fellow bloggers to list their favorite melodious songs in two languages and I am presenting to you what I think is the top 10 songs among the recommended ones. Since this is my selection, please remember that tastes vary depending upon so many factors and hence this list is by no means comprehensive. If you want to have a list of all the songs that were recommended in various languages, please follow the link given at the begining of this paragraph.

Enjoy………….. 🙂 (The songs are linked to the Youtube videos and you could right click on the song, open in a new tab and listen to it. The links are highlighted in blue)

Song #10: Sa Ding Ding – Alive

This song was recommended by Radha and is a Mangolian/ Han pop song. This is a very different song/ music where the visuals are as stunning as the song itself!

Song #9: Gli Ostacoli del cuore – Elisa Ligabue

This song was recommended by Radha and is an Italian song. I know this is not a slow or a melodious song. But the energy transformed to us by the singer is magical. And you will dance while listening to this song!

Song #8: Shaant Zarukhe Vaat nirakhti – Manhar Udhas

This song was recommended by Priya Iyer and is a Gujarati song. A nice melodious song in the style of a Ghazal and how much I wish I knew Gujarati!!

Song #7: Karat – Schwanenkonig

This song was recommended by Wortman and is a German song. Deep voice and fine music – a treat to the ears!

Song #6: Bulla ki jaana main kaun

This song was recommended by Dev and is a Punjabi song. I like the rhythm of this song along with the message it propagates.

Song #5: Liebe ist Alles

This song was recommended by Wortman and is a German song. The way the tempo is raised slowly as the song progresses is too good!

Song #4: Anisuthithe yaako indhu

This song was recommended by Su and is a Kannada song. I loved the song first time I heard it and that was long before doing this tag! Beautiful song, voice and music!

Song #3: The beatles of Hong Kong – Beyond

This song was recommended by Radha and is a Chinese song. If there was a soulful song searching for melody in melencholy, this was it!

Song #2: Paan Leelu Joyu

This song was recommended by Priya Iyer and is a Gujarati song. This is what I call a slow, melodious and soulful song. Too good!!

Song #1: Dheena dayalo Rama

This song was recommended by Nimmy and is a Malayalam song. Among all the songs recommended to me, I have listened to this one more times than any other. I just love such classical carnatic type songs! And some competition to Shreya Ghoshal at last!
