  • Mood:
  • Music:

Bollywood hits and other music to mitigate the downstairs neighbors' partying noise.

One thing I am good at when sufficiently motivated is being Really Damned Annoying. I'm often slow to respond (I need to stew for awhile), but I'm effective when I finally strike.

Our noisy downstairs neighbors started their three-song playlist and drunken mariachi karaoke at 0230 on Christmas Day, keeping Vogon and I awake at an hour we really wanted to be asleep. We mitigated the worst of it by turning on music in our apartment, but I want something different for New Year's Eve.

While thinking about what genre or specific artist would be effective at canceling out the neighbor's noise and pleasing to both of us, I was reading through the syndicated feeds I subscribe to through LiveJournal. In the Language Hat article "Bollywood Language", I followed a link to Bollywood for the Skeptical and was delighted to find NINETEEN tracks from movies available for free download.

[in Montgomery Burns voice] Excellent.
