The songs are:
Let’s Work It Out – especially loved because it samples Leke Pehla Pehla Pyar (spotify), one of the most beautiful 50s Golden Greats ever written, performed here by Mohammed Rafi, Asha Bhosle (yes, as in ‘Brimful of Asha’), and Shamshad Begum.
Teri Baaton (Your Words) – a reggae-hindi concoction which is a second version of his UK hit ‘Angel Eyes’ and makes me think of Summer… so will be played this Summer, a lot. It’s actually the flight into the classical vocal at the end that gets me more than anything else.
So Confused – early 2000’s R&B. They played it in ALL the clubs back then (well, all the desi clubs folks like me were going to, anyway) and when I have my way, they still do. :)
I have a thing about desi-rnb fusion/remixes/mashups, and have done since I heard Taal Se Taal Mila mixed with Only You at the Imperial College London ACS Fashion Show back in…2000? (Thanks Az!). Raghav does it released and mainstream.
Seen live a few years back under the pretence of wanting to see Jagged Edge.
Apparently he’s still around and has released a new album!
