Nazara Hai (From the movie 8×10 Tasveer)

 

I decided to cover a hindi song for a change. Tara Balakrishnan bought me this track for my birthday and I’ve been procrastinating for a while. I love this song for its edgy vocals and lovely bass line. As always I’ve added some harmonies here n there. Hope this cover was worth your time.

Thanks for the track Tara!

Still Got The Blues (Gary Moore Cover)

 

Its been a while since I sang anything bluesy. I love the progression of notes typically in blues and this song is no exception. Gary Moore has been on my daily playlist for about 10 years now and this is one of my favorite tracks of his. I’ve tried to capture the emotions as best as I can. Hope this takes you all to a special place.

Fields of Gold (Sting Cover)

 

No matter how a day is or how stressed out I might be, this song always gives me peace. It takes me to a place I cannot describe. I felt the same when I sang this today. A sense of inner peace. This is a Sting classic from the album Ten Summoners Tales. I have added some harmonies and backing vocals, but other than that its pretty close to the original. I hope you feel the same way I do when you listen to this.

Get Over It (Eagles Cover)

 

This is one of my favorite Eagles songs. I have performed this at numerous shows and decided to do it one more time for old times sake. I love the attitude with which Don Henley sings this and the lyrics. We all tend to feel sorry for ourselves all the time, and as the song goes – GET OVER IT!

Big Love (Fleetwood Mac Cover)

 

My first cover of Fleetwood Mac. This is one of their biggest hits. I actually like the acoustic live version better, but could not find the karaoke for that one. Here is my attempt at this timeless classic.

Grace Kelly (Mika Cover)

 

I think this is the longest I’ve stayed away from singing in the last 2 yrs or so. Not sure how many of you are familiar with this song. GraceKelly was one of my earliest covers. My mom used to love it and hence I felt I should sing it agin.

This song is a lot of fun especially coz of the crazy scale. It goes from the lower end of my range to almost the other extreme in falsettos. Breath control is also key for this song.
Hope you enjoy the cover!
