A Thought on Voices...

I wish I had the time to flesh this out a little more, but for now just a brief thought...

I had "Dhadhak Dhadhak" from Bunty aur Babli playing in the background and was vaguely lazing off into a nap, and woke myself up realizing that I'd just pictured the entire video for the song with Shahrukh as the star rather than Abhishek.  I guess I've gotten so used to hearing Udit Narayan sing for Shahrukh that regardless of who I knew the actual star to be, I only pictured the face that I associate with the voice.

Has that ever happened to anyone else?  Are there singers who will always correspond in your mind to a specific actor, no matter who they're actually singing for?

Found It! Mauli Dave's "Kem Che"

In an earlier post I mentioned Mauli Dave had done a bang up job covering "Usne Bola Kem Che" in her final appearance on Sa Re Ga Ma Pa (ohhhh how I love that show!) but couldn't seem to find a vid to prove it.  Turns out I had a vid of my own, buried in the dark recesses of my computer.  I love love LOVE her take on this.  She's clearly having a hell of a time up there on stage--everything is perfect, from her costume to her facial expressions.  Shekhar is definitely enjoying it, as is that day's guest (can someone please tell me who that is?  I thought it was Shekhar for the longest time...he's gorgeous!).

I'm Still Here! (Song of the Day--Mehbooba Mehbooba)

I just realized it's been a month since I updated (again...I'm really really bad/new at this). No worries though, I'm still here! A lot of other things have been fighting for my attention (mostly work, sigh) but I've got a few reviews in the works. Keep an eye out in a week or so for my thoughts on Fashion, Darna Mana Hai, and a few odds and ends (a Bollywood-themed episode of Hotel Babylon?  Swoon!).

For now here's a Song of the Day--it's been in my head for weeks and now it'll be in yours, muahahaha.  ;)
