More Rahman

Well, it’s been a while since I posted any music by AR Rahman, so here are a few more faves, old and new. The first is from “Taal”, the first Bollywood film I ever saw, back in 2000. The next two are from “Delhi 6” (or “Dilli 6”, if you prefer – my iTunes seems to), released in 2009. And the final track is from “Ghajini”, a Bollywoodisation of Chris Nolan’s “Memento” released in 2008.

If you ask me, they’re all a hell of a lot better than that limp Dido duet Rahman’s up for an Oscar for (for “127 Hours”)! Enjoy…

  1. Thanks guys. The opening few seconds of the final one has been driving me mad, maki: it reminds me so strongly of something else – until the vocal comes in anyway. Bizarrely, I think it might be something like “Germ Free Adolescents”, which of course sounds NOTHING like this song!

      • Bingo! My first thought actually was The Who and I youtubed Pinball Wizard earlier to check that – wrong song! Then I veered off down the X Ray Spex route. Thanks ‘ubu – I can rest easy now that mystery’s cleared up.
