OMFG, I think the music of Veer is going to be awe-some. I should've thought twice about it, but didn't and now I've come across an audio list of the songs and judging from the titles/singers/lyricists it seems like it's going to be good stuff. Here's the list, judge for yourself:
The music directors are Sajid-Wajid and the lyrics by the oh-so poetic Gulzaar Saab (I feel like it's, almost, sinful to not add the 'saab' after his name).
1)Kanha - Thumri
Singers: Rekha Bhardwaj, Sharib Sabri, Toshi Sabri, Shabaab Sabri
Singers: Sonu Nigam
Singers: Roop Kumar Rathod, Shreya Ghoshal
4)Spirit Of Veer - Instrumental
5)Surili Akiyon Wale
Singers: Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, Suzanne D'Mello
6)Surili Akiyon Wale - Duet
Singers: Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, Sunidhi Chauhan, Suzanne D'Mello
Singers: Sukhwinder Singh, Sonu Nigam, Wajid, Neuman Pinto
8)Taali - Solo
Singers: Sukhwinder Singh
Okay, an album that features Sonu Nigaam, Shreya Ghoshal, Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, Sunidhi Chauhan, Sukhwinder Singh, Roopkumar Rathod, The (new age) Sabri Brothers, Rekha Bhardwaj and a Thumri (yeah, I'm an old woman at heart)... you've got to be REALLY talented in order to screw that one up. I am hyped. I love when good soundtracks come out because I want to prove all the folks (who's 'all'? The haters on Youtube, artists from yesteryear, etc.) that in this day and age we DO have awesome talent and can create legendary, traditional INDIAN music. No pressure, Sajid-Wajid.
The music is expected to release December 18th.
If my ramblings weren't enough, LISTEN TO... rather than check out, this VEER promo of 'Salaam Aaya.' I highly suggest you play the video, but not watch it the first time through. It's more charming to simply listen to it.
Noooo, it won't let me embed it! They just put it up three hours ago, maybe some rookie did it. Here's the link: Salaam Aaya
