What music are you listening to?

Recommended Posts

What music are you listening to right now? Let's bond over some worldly stuff. I'm sure the people here aren't twerking it out to Anaconda and I'm also sure alot of you don't spend all your time listening to kirtan and Gurbani. So what songs are you really into right now? Why so? 

I'll start it out with this.

I love the lyrics and the beat of it. The lyrics have a pretty interesting meaning.

There is nothing that they can do,
To protect a king and his fool,
Caught in the fire, watch it burn,
Ash to ash, now it's our turn,
Take their kingdom down and smash it to pieces,
Turn their feet around, they will be defeated,
They will crumble at the sight of our legion,
if you want the crown then you've got to break them down.

 

I always got the vibe its an attack on the current establishment, the king being the uncaring government and the fool being the ones who chase after them for power and wealth. The fire is a symbolism of their very greed eventually destroying them and the legion being the people rising up to oppose them.

Highly doubt you'll get many people to post music they enjoy in their free-time, personally, I'm more into television and YouTube over music, but the type of music I would listen to is electronic music, mostly because focuses on good beat, rather than people's voices getting in the way like most songs.

I just listen to whatever is playing on the radio. Usually BBC Asian Network, might not be paying attention.

I am trying to get into listening to Raag music, especially Raag Keertan. IT's never playing in the gurdwara so have to listen to it at home or in the car. 

Also found some Rabab music on Youtube yesterday, it actually sounds similar to 80s and 90s bhangra music!

I've been watching the kids contests on the Indian channels lately and saw the difference between the Punjabi ones and the other Hindi ones. I don't know whether it's because of the budget of them or the judges, but the Hindi classical music ones seem to be more professional than the Punjabi ones. It's a shame, as the Punjabi kids seem to be stuck in one mode and they don't have much training as the Hindi ones.

Good choice. Have a listen to Cult of Fire, they are a Czech band who did an album based on Hindu philosophy and religion. It's called Ascetic Meditation of Death. \m/

    • Well get the hell off this site then. NO room for crap sikhs m8! Go back to your mandir and poor milk over some statues. Maybe then you'll get kirpa from your devi devte 😂 Loool go eat some badaam to sort your brain out. Its too fickle and weak.
    • What the heck. Calm down. I can post whatever i want. So what if im a crap sikh. I dont care.
    • as far as I know he has many streams of making money so no i have no problem with earning it's how he earns , if it brings pointing fingers on sikhi roop or does beadbhi of Guru ji, there are already too many others doing that for someone who knows better to start. As for my comment it was because the sangat of these yoginis seems to encourage the Singhs to do things which are frowned upon , like dragging Guru ji's saroop to places which are not suitable to host Guru ji or to monetize Gurbani kirtan and their roop(before you say it kirtaniyas perform in front of Guru ji and Sangat, not music festivals in concert halls) .3Ho have links with RSS swamis/guru so you can bet there is influence as we have seen in Niddar's case , probably again there will be something brewing will which show itself soon. i   where anti ? they just said they recognise their own failing to be impartial because of influences and their need to distance from said influences as it was skewing their output . What they said about Dal UK was even handed in terms of pointing out that backing up certain individuals meant they were trapped by it. Anyway calling on people to not rest on laurels of others' achievements is hardly against anyone it's just asking them to live up to their aspirations.
    • Asking what? I want answers from this site because i thought there were people here who have knowledge. 
    • Fine better to also do some khoj yourself before asking.
