Ada – A great music journey 1 – Meherbaan

Grabbed the copy of the maestro’s latest offering in the evening…  and its 2:30 am here..  its being played continuously  and i guess i might not sleep today as i can’t enough of it.  My way of listening to a Rahman Album is, start with one song ( which is most likely to be the one sung by himself), and I did the same with Ada..  Meherbaan is the one on my mind rite now. Its the one which is playing for last 3 hours continuously.  So probably I will post my opinions on this song and then will cover the other tracks in the coming posts.

Meherbaan Sung and Composed by A R Rahman,  Lyrics by Raqueeb Alam

The song starts off with a piano ( close your eyes and you will see rahman on the piano while listening ) … piano some what sounds similar to the one heared in “Shauk Hai”, but a bit faster. Rahman has sung it so well,  I get goose bumps when he sings “Tere bina mein hun be zameen, Tere bina mein be aaasman… Meherbaan” … and then starts humming ( oh breathtaking!)… with meherbaan in the background..

Rahman sings in his trademark high pitch…  then his voice becomes ultra smooth when he sings “Tu hai nazar, main hun nazara” …… a pause … “meharbaan”

What a song! …. I am going for a repeat.

It was drizzling in bangalore 2 hours back and was driving through the koramangala inner ring road at a speed of 15 kms… ( on the way to the airport to pick up a friend ) and Meherbaan in the background. Try it guys… you will fall in love all over again..

I Have always wondered, why in a Rahman album, the song sung by him goes around in my head for a longer time ( i get addicted ! ) , than any other song! … probably because I feel only he can justify his composition than any other singer.

A for meherbaan…. 6 out of 5 stars…
A bonus star for making me realise how beautiful love is….  thanks Rahman!
