An adlib introduction to the song happens, after which Dev Sahab says, “Antron se ghoom ke jab main mukhde pe aaoon toh mere saath gaayiye”. How more perfect can a party song with chorus start?
And it is always so cool when the crowd cooperates and maintains silence when you are singing in a party and sings along obediently when told… and the females also create nice harmonic chorus lines… wow! What a beautiful song this is 🙂
On a lighter note:
Some disadvantages of knowing to play an instrument:
1. You get called to random parties by random people with the last line of invitation being “guitar zaroor leke aana” 🙂
2. You are the one who drinks the least; You can’t drink while playing, you don’t want to mess the chords/sur, and by the time you finish playing, drinks are over/everyone’s left 🙂
3. While you’re playing, barring a couple of super-enthu music lovers, no one gives a damn about what you’re playing and some constant chapad-chapad is invariably on…once in a while you will also hear a loud cheer and when you look there, it will be for some other random reason 🙂
