Don...Don...Don....

As quoted by a world-famous common man who gives motivational speech standing next to a lamp-post near Malleshwaram grounds- “time barbeku saar time-u” (translated: what ees the right time, sir, please?), this blog-post too was waiting for the right time. Whatte beautiful wisdom. Profound.

Teehee okay I’ll stop my out of context talks. So as I was saying, this post has been waiting to get published for more than a year now. Yes yes I know it isn't surprising, I have a master degree in procrastination. But like Mr.world-famous-lamp-post-man says, time saar time-u.

Last year, when fellow-blogger-singer Vimmuuu, and I were generally chatting about songs, singers and AR Rahman (not in that order), he suddenly suggested -"aye why don’t we record a duet?" It got me very excited as I have always wished to record a duet number. Thus, we immediately started hunting for songs and finally, aaj ki raat (movie: Don) seemed like the right choice (I hope you people agree :)). I first sang the female vocalist's lines and mailed it to him. He later recorded his lines and tadah! the song was ready. Well, not quite. Vimmuuu then worked on the post-recording/mixing bit, all techie stuff, and made it sound all professional. Both of us agreed to post the song simultaneously and hence had to wait for the 'right time'.

So finally the auspicious day has arrived heehee.. Also, Don-2 is all set to release tomorrow. By re-visiting this song, I hope Shankar-Ehsan-Loy (some how land on our blogs) reminisce their Don-1 days and help us live peacefully by not scoring atrocious music (such as Don-2 tracks). Yep now you understand the context.

Presenting aaj ki raat, for the first time (simultaneously) on two blogs. I hope you have as much fun listening to the track as we did singing it.

Please do let us know your feedback; brickbats and bouquets are welcome!
And thank you Vimzy boy :) Hope to sing more such duets with you :)

Firstly, I really like this song.

Secondly, you have sung so damn well. Seriously, I think you have a very fresh voice. And I don't know, your friend sounded a bit like Sonu Nigam to me, in some places. Great job both of you!

I am a fan! Waiting for more of such duets :)

When I heard your Raag Puriya Dhanashree in August 2009, I wrote a comment “Just one word. Superb”.

I want to repeat the same comment and add one more sentence.

Just one word. Superb. Here is the next Bombay Jayashree.

Nice attempt. Quite close to professional singing. I thought the initial music was too long, but that was not in your purview anyway. You both have soft voices - Try to sing with some more passion. Its quite ok if the pitch increases slightly - The song will be even better.
