The Paper, Ink and Pen Songs

Posted by Trivia – The Spice of Life on 28/08/2021 Some time ago, fellow blogger Anupji had written a post – Triad of Singers. The concept was very novel. It was an attempt to enlist songs (of the same movie) where three different voices sing for the same actor/actress. Taking a leaf out of hisContinue reading “One Movie, Many Lyricists”

Songs that Measure (⚖) Love

Posted on 14/08/2021 by Trivia- The Spice of Life Emotions can only be felt, never measured. Thus, when some one asks you how much you love them, it is rather difficult to quantify it – in fact impossible. I was thus trying to fathom how songs that speak of how much someone loves the other,Continue reading “Songs that Measure (⚖) Love”

Songs of the Sun🌞

Posted by Trivia – The Spice of Life on 31/07/2021 Isn’t it strange that there are umpteen songs of the golden era that mention the moon? The moon has been a faithful companion of lovers. The moon is pampered no end. What would all the lyricists do without the moon? But the star that givesContinue reading “Songs of the Sun🌞”

Static (?!) Solo Party Songs

Posted by Trivia- The Spice of Life on 17/07/2021 Party songs in golden era Hindi films are pretty stereotypical. There is music, dance and a large gathering. There is usually an instrument being played by the hero/heroine/ supporting actor/actress – which more often than not is the piano. As the piano is played and theContinue reading Static (?!) Solo Party Songs”

Songs of (skewed!?) Work-Life Balance

Posted on 05/06/2021 by Trivia-The Spice of Life Work-life balance is that (elusive!!) state of equilibrium where a person equally prioritizes the demands of one’s career and the demands of one’s personal life. Achieving that perfect balance between ‘work’ and ‘life’ is easier said than done. The reasons for the imbalance could be many. SometimesContinue reading “Songs of (skewed!?) Work-Life Balance”
