2260 : Why harmony matters....

I have gone back to 1994. I am now listening to a particular song from Kabhi Haa Kabhi Naa by Kundan Shah starring Shah Rukh Khan, Suchitra Krishnamoorthy and Deepak Tijori.

The song is a "Deewana" a duet between Amit Kumar and Udit Narayan.

Music by Jatin Lalit - this song is an awesome example of two male voices singing in perfect harmony.

Where one male voice ends and the other begins is almost difficult to figure.

It has a very operatic quality, most of the lines are in high + bassy (I know there is a contradiction) notes.

Some lines are just brilliant.....

Toota sitara tho maanga tha rab se,
Tujhko hi jan-e-jaha,

Jo toot jaye taare tamam,
mangoo wahi ek dua.

(When I saw the shooting star, the only wish I made was you,
If all the stars decided to go kaput one by one,
(guess what!!), I would still ask for only one thing (and thats you). )

Dil se laga kar ke rakha hain ab tak,
Resham ka tera roomal,
Aage kahoon kya jaane man,
Aa dekh jaa mera haal....

(The one muslin kerchief you forgot the other day, still sits in my breast pocket,
What more do I say sweetheart, if you want to still check on me, come over you will still find me lovelorn)
