London Dreams music by SEL

After all the hoopla that Vipul Shah’s ambitious London Dreams music was being composed by Rahman,here’s the damp squib.I was shocked to see it’s promo carry the credits as Shankar Ehsaan Loy,so I did a little googling myself.And yes it’s true the music is by SEL and not Rahman!
SEL….um..hope they better than in Wake Up Sid
BTW music releasing in the third week of september.

Gawd!!! Another Theme Change!

I can almost sense some of you cursing me for going in for another theme change.It is mighty inconveniencing-Yes! but in view that the reader must not strain his/her eyes while reading my regular rantings,I decided to revert back to the old theme.So there!

Life Partner & Love Khichdi Soundtrack Listings

You must be amazed why I’m posting the OST listings of such little known films.The point is their soundtracks are composed by Pritam.

The Longest Tweet In History!

Here’s one for the twitter junkies.Taylor Buley,a reporter for Forbes,has apparently posted a tweeeeeet that is 247 characters long.Ostensibly,twitter only allows 140 characters in one tweet.But Buley seems to have found a way out.Go figure!

PS:I’m not particularly fond of twitter,though.Blogging ┬ákeeps my hands full anyway!

PPS:It’s been a dull week so far.I’m still plugged to Kaminey,though I prefer Love Aaj Kal anyday.With not much happening on the music scene,lets hope things brighten up for the coming week.
