I searched far and long and tried many type of music and many singers but somehow the comfort and pleasure which i have in the company of the songs of this artist named “Lucky Ali” can never be duplicated.
I was introduced to the music of this soul strummer through the songs of the movie Sur and since the association has never dwindled. I have been and will always be a fan of Lucky Ali. I always say that Sachin is the God of Cricket and if there is one person whom i would place as his equal to in music, it is without any shade of doubt Lucky Ali.
You can feel the harmony in his music. His music always touches a chord in your heart be it the light mood mausam, love songs like O sanam, Dark songs like Mehboob. One thing which i jut adore about him is that his songs have a variety of emotions. His repertoire consists a variety of songs.
Somehow i have always heard the complaint by people that all his songs sound the same while i on the contrary feel that he has quite a lot variety in his music listing, more than most of the Indian Artists we have. One reason for this which i can think of is people dont listen to most of his songs but have heard only the most famous ones or the movie songs while his best songs are the not so popular ones… According to me his movie songs listening to which people like his music stand nowhere in comparison to his albums.
One truly awesome quality of his songs is that many of his songs can lift up your mood whenever you are down, i for my part turn to his music whenevr i am down and out. One of his song Mausam has a strange quality (atleast seems to me), it seems a very cheerful and happy song whenever you are in light mood but it becomes a saddish (if i can use the term) when you are down, which i have experienced.
His first album Sunoh must have been a huge hit, i dont know much about then coz it came in 1996 when i was just 9 but the album stayed 60 weeks on MTV Asia charts, which is quite an achievement 😛 as far as i think. He had this habit of releasing albums every two years with Sunoh in ’96, Sifar in ’98, Aks in 2000, Gori Teri Aankhein in 2002 and Kabhi Aisa Lagta Hai in 2004 but the year 2006 went on without any album of his.. 😦 and i just kept waiting. Its 3 years since his last album and i hope he releases something soon.. 🙂
I would suggest any music enthusiast to listen to his music, specially the Album Aks…. which by me is the best of the lot..
If any Lucky Ali fan reads this and you want any song of his, just tell me and i will be more than happy to send you any song of him if you want and I on my part want the song “Aap Par Arz hai ” from the album “Sunoh”, if you have it then please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org
One more speciality of the guy is that h writes the lyrics and composes the music of most of his songs besides ofcourse singing them.. He is so multitalented.
Some songs of him i would suggest everybody to listen are
Aap par arz hai
Nahin Rakhta Dil Mein
Ofcourse the popular ones like Dekha Hai Aise bhi, O Sanam…
The list just goes on n on
Song of the day :- Aap par Arz hai from Sunoh.. Miss listening to this beautiful song so much..
