The Soundtrack Of My Life – International Edition

The lovely Em Linthorpe took part in a great music tag post and said that if we wanted to, we could join in!

soundtrack of my life

Simply, this tag is just picking 7 songs that could be described as forming “The Soundtrack Of My Life”.

You know me, I have a really rich, colourful and international background so it is hard to think of just seen songs, that you would all understand! So I decided to do to two posts! A previous one with western songs (click here for that!), and this with International songs, that have influenced my life!

So., here we go!

  1. Bhabiye Ni Bhabiye – AlaapGoing to weddings, growing up there were no DJ’s but live bhangra bands performing, and one of the most popular was Alaap. This was a song that was played again and again. The meaning of the song was a young brother in law asking his sister in law (brother’s wife) to help him find a wife! Popular at all the weddings, then and now still! We also knew the singer so visited his house!

2. Yeh Dosti – Sholay

Bollywood has always played a HUGE part in my life and Sholay was a film that was released the year I was born. It is classed as a classic now (eek! Does that mean I am now in the ‘Classic’ Catergory?!) About friendship, it was played lots at gatherings, and you will still, to this day, find groups of drunken lads, grouped together singing it, celebrating their friendship! Picturized on Amitabh Bachchan and Dharmendra, who are two kings of Bollywood!

3. Roj Roj – Sardara Gill

Going back no weddings and my internationally placed family, when we would get together at a wedding, this was a popular song, as it means that we aren’t always going to be together, like this, so we need to enjoy our time, and sing, laugh, dance and be merry!

Sorry the video is not particularly great, but it was the only one I could find!

4. Jambo Bwana

Again, going back to weddings (yes, there were, and are, a lot in my family!) when the Kenyan contingency get together, a version of this song has to be played! Hakuna Matata!

5. Chura Liya – Bally Sagoo

When Brummy DJ Bally Sagoo remixed this old Hindi Bollywood classic, it ended up being an international hit! I love this song, the original, and his version, which again was a song that takes me back to my teen years! (Again, we knew him and his family, as my Pops was his dentist!)

6. – Hai Mera Dil – Josh

Another song from Bollywood, but a pretty important one, as it was our first dance at our wedding! Loosely translated it means that you only love once, and you, who have stolen my heart, will be my one forever.

7. Lambada – Kaoma

I had to include this in my list of international songs! I love the rhythm of the song, and so does my Pops! In fact when it was released, it was Pops who bought the vinyl!

There you have it! A selection of songs that have influenced my life in some way or another!

Hope you enjoyed, and if you fancy taking part, please go ahead!!!

    I remember you mentioning some of these songs before, and I really enjoyed them, especially as you had mentioned a bit of background to them.
    I love the Lambada too, I have been listening to it lately on one of my compliation CDs! 🙂
