60 Years Of Bollywood Part II

They are back on public demand! There first edition was so good that I spent one and a half hour transcribing it. So, have they bettered it this time? Well, this one is different–both in terms of focus and chords. The focus is on singing (what an incredible alaap on Roja song!). The chord progressions are a little different as well. I could see a lot of sharps and flats this time.

At some places, consecutive songs were so similar that they felt like the same song (not necessarily a good thing). Overall, a good second part, sung with difficult songs.

Hurts Like Heaven

Written in graffiti on a bridge in a park
‘Do you ever get the feeling that you’re missing the mark?’
It’s so cold, it’s so cold
It’s so cold, it’s so cold
Written up in marker on a factory sign
‘I struggle with the feeling that my life isn’t mine’
It’s so cold, it’s so cold
It’s so cold, it’s so cold
See the arrow that they shot, trying to tear us apart
Took the fire from my belly and the beat from my heart
Still I won’t let go
Still I won’t let go
You
Ooohooh
‘Cause you do
Oh you, use your heart as a weapon
And it hurts like heaven

— Coldplay’s song “Hurts Like Heaven”
