Song 3 from Side B.

This is another of those handful songs almost set entirely in low
notes, and creates a very tangible picture of a doleful, silent night-
well in sync with the words. The song has a slow, drawn-out pace, very
minimal orchestration, and most of all, beautifully modulated vocals to
capture the theme of the song. The way she softens her voice ever so
slightly between the two 'yaad sataaye's, the yearning note she injects
in 'haaye more baalama',... (speechless)...

     chupke se chhod gaye, manva ko tod gaye
     itna bataa do saiyan, kaahe mukh mod gaye
     ankhiyon se duur kiya, kiya majbuur jiya
     sudh bisaraayi meri duun main duhaai teri
     haaye more baalama...

To sign off on this compilation, I'll post one more song from my #1 CR
soundtrack - Shantaram's 'Parchhaain', hopefully over the weekend.
