One for “Belle du Seigneur”


I came across this beautiful musical piece while doing some random search on Youtube. This is a composition by the Spanish musician, Nacho Sotomayor. The song is titled as ‘Belle du Seigneur’ which refers to a ‘lover or beloved’ in French. It is a part of Sotomayor’s album La Roca Vol.7. 

Belle du Seigneur also features in the original soundtrack of the movie starring Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Natalia Vodianova. In fact, the video shared here, is a clip from the same movie. The movie is based on a famous novel by Albert Cohen which is an account of a heated love affair set on the brink of World War II.

I don’t understand French but the song speaks out to me. The music captures an intense mood and the flute renders a very fine classical touch to the notes. If you listen carefully, you will appreciate the huge variation of sounds that has been neatly assembled in this one song. I mean, there are very few pieces where I’ve found such a divine co-existence of the piano and the flute. Don’t they sound so heavenly together?

One for “Letting go”…


Song: “Let go” ~ Frou Frou

Yes, the time has come to update this blog!

I have been collecting quite a few songs in the past few months or should I say, these songs found me?

So, I was watching the movie called ‘Garden State’ and just half way through the movie, I realize that I already love the soundtrack! It is an absolute must have!  Each song has been beautifully picked to make it such a delightful compilation.

Thanks to this movie, I came across ‘Frou Frou’, a British electronic duo composed of Imogen Heap and Guy Sigsworth. It is quite possible that you must have already listened to their music but I will share it anyway, for the sake of those who haven’t.  🙂

The song is called “Let go” and it most definitely captures the essence of the phrase ‘letting go’. I am sure most of us have experienced a time, where we just had to let go of things. But then, we often contemplate and get stuck. This song is a reminder that there’s beauty in letting go, there’s beauty in falling down, there’s beauty in breakdown. Ask me why? Because it’s alright to let things happen to you. Trust in the universe, to put things in perspective. It can be extremely testing but hey, that’s how we learn, don’t we?

So let go, take a deep breath and fall, if you must… But always remember, you won’t be the same person again, when you rise up. It’ll be a different you… Meet that different you.

In case you like this song, you might also enjoy ‘Must be dreaming’ by Frou Frou. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ktv_12gzg-g

Happy letting go!

One for the catchy Jazz….


October has been quite the musical journey for me… Days have been running on the typical highs and lows, just like musical notes.

Here is one of my recent finds. This tune is stuck in my head for now…

Song: “Why did we fire the gun?” ~ Waldeck.

A find from my sister’s playlist. That’s the delight of exchanging songs. Really…

——– Wandering Sonata.

One from “The perks of being a wallflower” soundtrack.


I’m sure most of you have seen this movie called “The Perks of being a wallflower”. If not, you must!

This is my favourite pick from the soundtrack. Should ideally listen to it staring into the dark night sky lit with nothing but the stars…

Song: Evensong ~ “The Innocence Mission”
