Right Here Waiting For you - Richard Marx cover

Richard Marx is probably the first English singer I listened to after Micheal Jackson. The first album I bought was Ballads, a collection of love songs sung by Richard Marx and there I heard this beautiful song, Right Here Waiting For You. The voice, the expressive singing, the soft piano touches... everything about this song is so beautiful. I don't know if I could do any justice to the original, but I enjoyed singing this one. The pitch was a little high for me though.

Song: Right here waiting for you

Do Dil Mil Rahe Hain from Pardes

I hold this song dearly for one reason. When we bought a CD player at home, Pardes was the first music CD that we (I and my brother) played. We played the CD all day and night long. The experience of listening to music from a CD player was totally new and exciting. Even at night, I would play the music in a low volume and spent almost the entire night without sleeping. I still remember that time clearly.

Nadeem-Sharavan was a hit music duo of Hindi film industry. Their songs are beautiful and melodious. This song from Pardes is no different. The karaoke track had lots of problems. It slowed up after sometime and then fastened up in between. On and off. So it was really difficult to sing along, however I couldn't resist singing this beautiful song. :-) Here is my humble try in singing Do Dil Mil Rahe Hain from Pardes. Do let me know what you think.

Kannathil Muthamittaal

Kannatthil Muthamittaal is one of my favorite movies from Mani Ratnam. Needless to say that the music by A R Rahman for this movie is awesome. My favorite song from the movie is Vellai Pookkal sung by ARR himself, but the title song is also beautiful. This song gave Chinmayee a huge break and made her name famous in the south Indian music industry. The male version was sung by P Jayachandran, one of the finest singers of our time.

When Sindhuja suggested that we put the male-female cover versions of this song in our blogs simultaneously, I thought it was a wonderful idea. We did the initial humming part in each other's versions too. The karaoke track was in slightly higher pitch compared to the original though. I must say I like Sindhuja's version a lot. So head over to her blog after listening to this. And do let us know your comments as usual. :-)
