I recommend that you all listen to the album first, before reading further. Listen to the songs of Bardaasht here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLvINSzLO7i5cXOv_HqPvYMP4NHMBhzYvR

The album of Bardaasht features wonderful music from Himeshji. Not only does each song feature a melodious emotional concept, but also moves the story of the film forward. Bardaasht stars Bobby Deol, Lara Dutta, Riteish Deshmukh and Tara Sharma. The music of the film is by Himeshji with lyrics by Sameer Anjaan ji. Singers on the album include Shaan, Alka Yagnik, Udit Narayan, Alisha Chinoy & Kunal Ganjawala.
The song Silsile Mulaqaton Ke is a wonderful duet that is sung by Udit Narayan and Alka Yagnik. A beautiful melody, this song flows from start to finish. The lyrics which are written by Sameerji, talk about the immense love and respect between the couple. Himeshji really is the King when it comes to creating such wonderful melodies that not only strike a chord with the listener, but also covey the right message for the youth who are the main listeners of his music.

Tujhse Hi Umeed Judi Hain Jaaniya, Dil Ki Dor Khud Jaisi Bandhi Hain Maahiya…Choote Na Choote Na, Choote Na Choote Naa…Choote Na Choote Naa…Laagi Choote Naa…
We are bringing a new feature to the blog called Spotlight. This feature will discuss in detail one of Himeshji’s outstanding albums that are now evergreen gems.
The first album we shall be discussing is the masterpiece Rocky the Rebel. An album that compromises of 6 unique songs with different themes but one distinct singing feature in each of them.
The 6 songs that Himeshji has wonderfully composed for Rocky are:
*Laagi Choote Naa
*Teri Yaad Bichake Sota Hoon
*My Love For You
*Dil Rang Le
*Rocky Rock The World
You can listen & watch the songs at HRTV here: http://youtube.com/user/jemraj
The first song we shall look at is the haunting rock number Junoon. Junoon has been composed by Himeshji and has lyrics by Sameerji. Amrita Kak accompanies Himeshji on the vocals. The introduction of the song instantly grabs your attention with the haunting guitar before Himeshji’s voice. Himeshji’s singing style is extremely different in this song. The word Junoon (which means obsession) is the main hookline of the song. This song very much belongs to the rock genre and the rhythmic patterns mostly feature crotchets (ae meri tamanna, bin tere kahin na) and a small phrasing which has a dotted rhythm (tere khayalon se jude hue mere raat din… And …Inn dhadkanon se aati hain ab toh ye sadaa…) The song has been picturised on Zayed Khan and Isha Sherwani.
