dil_ne_jise_apna_kahaa

Music review analysis of Himesh Reshammiya's album Dil Ne Jise Apna Kahaa (2004).

Yeh Dil To Mila Hai

The song begins with Indian string-based instrument until 0.22 that was similarly used (only the instrument, not the tune pattern) from 0.51 to 1.11 in WOH TASSAVUR KA AALAM from AAITRAAZ.

Alka vocals in semi plugged mode build up da song, along with likeable piano flicks from 0.30 to 0.31 & 0.35 to 0.36, soothing female chorus from 0.40 to 0.42 and drum skips from 0.53 to 1.04 with an underlying faint groovy tune.

Alka's line, KARNE (gradual voice rise gives halke se feel) from 0.34 to 0.35 & 0.47 to 0.48

The deadly cutting-edge synthetic techno instrument that closes in from 1.02 to 1.04 & 1.38 to 1.40 builds SIKE and gives OFF-DA-HOOK COMPLETENESS EFFECT to preceeding lines (terrific instrument selection and its use throughout the other song portions).

Sonu takes over and the rhythmic free flowing beats kick in from 1.06 onwards, note the tune sur at right places at the ending of words.

Between mukhda & 1st stanza, a lovely piano piece plays

1st stanza

Alka'a line, KYUN JAANE KYUN (HISTORY groovy tune sur at 2.27), KYUN LAGI LAGAN (HISTORY groovy tune sur at 2.29)

Alka's line, ISHQ KA HAI YEH (HISTORY tune sur at 2.38), KAUN SA MAQAM (HISTORY tune sur at 2.40)

Alka's line, PAL (quick emphasis typical unique HR melody twist) at 2.44 that was similarly used in her line, PYAR AA (quick emphasis typical unique HR melody twist) YA from 2.38 to 2.39 in KABHI NA SUKOON AAYA from KOI AAP SA, and her line, HAI (quick emphasis typical unique HR melody twist) from 3.36 to 3.37 in O MAKHNA VE from TAARZAN - THE WONDER CAR.

The quick rising keyboard flick from 2.45 to 2.46 gives completeness effect to her preceeding lines.

Alka's line, BECHAN KARNE LAGA HAI YE (sudden abrupt steep high pitched note, HISTORY emphasis vocals giving melodious pinch) EEEEEE from 2.48 to 2.49, DEEWANA PANNNNNNNN (HISTORY prolonged emphasis vocals giving melodious pinch) from 2.50 to 2.51

The deadly cutting-edge synthetic techno instrument that closes in from 2.51 to 2.53 builds SIKE and gives OFF-DA-HOOK COMPLETENESS EFFECT to Alka's preceeding lines.

From 2.56 onwards, dhadkan miLEEEEIIIIHAAAAAIIYYEEEEE (pinch), sirf tujhe PYAR KARNE(quick desperation feel twist) KE LIYE (pinch), yeh aankhen mili HAIIIIIIIN (pinch), bas tera didar kar NEEEEEEE (desperation, HISTORY at 3.14) ke liye.

Between 1st & 2nd stanza, the tune/chorus actually momentarily jumps one SUR UP behind the underlying beat skip but it returns back to normal default sur when strings hit along with full beats.

Alka Yagnik has already done some terrific history work! Is Sonu Nigam feeling intimidated or insecure at all that he will be completely overshadowed by Alka's PINCHING/STRICKING MELODIOUS vocals? Well his arrogantly response is "just bring it on baby!"

If Alka's weapon is MELODY then Sonu's trump card is his SOOTHNESS and FEEL FACTOR that bowls over the listener.

2nd stanza

Sonu's line, PYAR KI GALI (terrific tune sur up down up at 3.53), KHAAB KA SHEHAR (terrific tune sur up down up at 3.55)

Sonu's line, TUJHE (normal note) - EEE (higher note) from 3.57 to 3.58, HISTORY melody created using just 2 notes.

Soun's line, DE DIYA TUJHE (terrific tune sur up down up HALF NOTE at 3.58), DEKHE NAZAR (terrific tune sur up down up at 4.00)

Sonu's line, ZOR NA CHALE (HISTORY bazz trumpet tune sur at 4.03), JAZBAAT PAR (HISTORY bazz trumpet tune sur at 4.06), DE DIYA TUJHE (HISTORY bazz trumpet tune sur at 4.08)

Sonu's line, TUJHE (normal note) - EEE (higher note) at 4.08, HISTORY melody created using just 2 notes.

Sonu's line, JAANO JIGAR (wins over the listener, HISTORY lyrics n vocals) from 4.09 to 4.11 followed by quick rising keyboard flick that gives completeness effect. TAKE A BOW Sonu, and Himesh for getting the best feel out of him!

Sonu's line, HEEAAAEEEEE (HISTORY composition pattern) from 4.13 to 4.14, GUZAAAAAAR (halke se feel kick) from 4.15 to 4.17

The deadly cutting-edge synthetic techno instrument that closes in from 4.17 to 4.19 builds SIKE and gives OFF-DA-HOOK COMPLETENESS EFFECT to Sonu's preceeding lines.

Highlights of this song:

1. Alka Yagnik's utter melodious vocals.

2. Sonu Nigam's utter soothing feel vocals.

3. History tune sur in both stanza and deadly off-da-hook cutting edge synthetic techno sound to give completeness effect.

4. Underlying rhythmic free flowing beats, Indian string based theme piece used at start, likeable piano pieces and drum skips.

5. Soothing female background chorus.

This is HISTORY work and one of BEST EVER songs by Himesh-Sonu jodi combo.

However, it is a pity that neither Alka nor Sonu feature any more in Himesh's music! Well let there be hope in the future!

While any Himesh fan would proudly say that this song was the best song in the Album, every Rehman fan silently knows about the terrific class melody of this song.

Bindiya Chamakne Lagi

This is a song in the celebration  / shaadi genre.

Jayesh does his usual croons but in punjabi style from 0.15 to 0.42, with emphasis on his line, SAJAKEEEEEEEE (terrific classical emphasis feel twist) from 0.35 to 0.37
