Shivamani, Anuradha Sriram & Girlfriend

Before I begin, I guess everyone has those phases in life where you're hooked onto a song for a specific period of time. The period varies....sometimes its a week, sometimes way more or less. I'm hooked onto Girlfriend from the movie Boys. rythm & rattle_snake have been wondering why....I've been wondering why myself. It has nice lyrics & a nice tune. That's all. ....Girlfriends illa vazhkai waste allava?...(Isn't life without Girlfriends a waste?)...

So then, we decided to see Lakshya today. Was nice, pretty well made & what impressed me the most were the special effects. I haven't seen a Bollywood film with this kind of "clean" effect. Nice work, lovely movie. Don't miss it.

Dad's office celebrated their Foundation Day today. Shivamani is amazing on the drums & he did a jugalbandi with the panchavadyam (kerela type drums) played by someone whose name I don't remember. And this was after doing a solo for like 45 mins. Amazing. And then she came on stage. Anuradha Sriram. Geez boy does she have a great voice. And guess what she sang on someone's request? Girlfriend. w00t! I was screaming like nuts at the end of it.

Awesome post!

I was hooked onto Girlfriend for the entire seventh semester, so much that my hostel-mates used to plead with me not to play that song. Love the song, love the dance sequences in the video too. A.R. Rehman is GOD!

Another GOD = Ananda Shivamani. I heard his jugalbandi at Shopper's Stop in 2002 during our Independence Day. Wow - I was left in a trance!

Hey, wait a minute, Girlfriend was sung by a lady? You are talking about the Tamil version righto? Strange, the voice is so male-ish. Are you talking about the lead singer da?

There are female vocals in it right? With a whole set of whatnots going back and forth?

Awesome post!

Hehe, Thanks :)

Yes I'm talking about the Tamil version & yes, it was sung by some chap. But Anuradha Sriram singing it does have a special effect ;) The fact that she did it live, adds onto it. Beautiful, Amazing...Priceless :)

PS : AFAIK, she has nothing to do with the original song, but since its popular & was requested by the group Chairman, she sang it :) And she's a very sweet lady too lol.

It's that time of the year, when the sun is shining (except when it's raining. Or when it's night), and the dogs are barking (really, they are. It's 4:45 am, and the bloody dogs won't stop), and a young man's heart turn's lightly to thoughts of...jobs. *Wink*

Tera number bhi aayega, bete. *Wink* *Wink* ( = *Blink* )
