Music Tag!

So I have made myself relatively free today! Thanks to the Bangalore weather, and the Friday mood, and of course the absence of my PL and architect!! ;)

Ok, now to the point! I have been tagged by two friends! And frankly admitting, having no idea of what it meant, I had no option but to wait for some days to let others show me the way!

Having a fair idea of it now, let me try a hand at it. A disclaimer from my side: my choice of music or books is a little boring and old fashioned!

So Srinivas here is my world of music for you!

Hey!! A few points again, before I proceed!
a. Jagjeet singh and Pankaj Udhas rock!
b. Those who say A.R Rehman's music is typecasted, can go to hell!
c. I am not a Hard Rock - head banging kind of guy, though I listen to quite afew selected songs. And hence, I am a bit illeterate when it comes to English music.


Last album I bought
Don't remember, I prefer music on my comp. And thanks to 4 years at hostel, I have plenty of contacts that I manage to get CD's for free.

Next album(s) I want to buy
I really want to buy the whole collection of Floyd. But have not been able to dare that!! A single album costs around 700/-. My sister would die of heart attack if she finds out that! And I love her too much to loose her! ;)

Last song I downloaded
Jagjeet Singh's - Pyar mughse so kiya tumne..

Last song I heard before this post
Brayan Adam's - Cloud number 9
