I don’t know if you all would remember, but there used to be a section in my blog where I used to list down my top ten favourites of the month under the topic – Current Favs. I was thinking of scrapping the whole idea and the last such update was in Oct (not to include the annual roundup). But then, there was a selfish motive behind the whole idea of listing down the songs – for me to recollect these songs, say about 5 – 10 years down the lane.
Finally, after putting a lot of thoughts whether to continue it or not, I decided to revive the whole thing under a new name and theme–V-tunes– and this would appear as a separate page in the blog. It appears just below the header, next to V-mphony, can you see it ? The old ones, like Smita and Uma, put on your glasses, you will see or else click here to get there !!! 😀 😀
Initially, I thought of making it a quarterly update, but it seriously is too much of an effort and moreover, the list becomes too long for anyone to comprehend. So, as usual, its going to be a monthly update and unlike my previous lists, I am not going to rate any of the songs here. From now on, its just going to be the name of the albums under each language and also my fav pick from each of those albums. Again, this list wouldn’t have all the released albums, but only the ones which I think are worth mentioning.
Btw, the below list is huge, I agree, for it has most of the releases from Jan till March.
