Devoting time this week to the Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na soundtrack, which was launched at Shammi Kapoor's house on Tuesday (see related post, including video from the launch). Listened to it a couple of times today, and it is refreshing and fun-filled while easily being the best soundtrack of the year. Hoping to translate each song this week. Even hope to compile my translations and transliterations in a downloadable booklet, if anyone's interested =) (?)
Too often, soundtracks belonging to this genre are classified as 'yet another album with noise'. This is unlike anything I have come across in its genre. It is definitely worth listening to and understanding, hence the effort.
The album has eight tracks, one of which is a remix (see the track listing in this post). Let's start with Kahin To Hogi. Beautifully sung by newcomer Rashid Ali and Vasundhara Das, it is fast becoming a sing-along favorite!
Here are the lyrics I transcribed, and alongside it my attempted translation. Listen to the complete soundtrack at this link. And go buy this album -- it's worth every penny, and will make us stronger believers in love!
