Musical Madness

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

: Sonu Nigam

3)Salaam Aaya
Roop Kumar Rathod, Shreya Ghoshal

4)Spirit Of Veer - Instrumental

5)Surili Akiyon Wale
: Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, Suzanne D'Mello

6)Surili Akiyon Wale - Duet
Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, Sunidhi Chauhan, Suzanne D'Mello

Sukhwinder Singh, Sonu Nigam, Wajid, Neuman Pinto

8)Taali - Solo
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



  1. Oh...M...Geeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.......Aaaahhh I am sooo super excited after hearing that list as welll!!!!! Love all these singers man....all righty I am not gonna waste another second and go listen to salaam aaya!!!

  2. sweet...I really liked the picturization..the fusion between old English/western and Indian..=) Awesome..can't wait to hear the rest =)

  3. When I first saw the promos of Veer on TV, I totally freaked out! I agree with you there, every bit of it =)

  4. From just listening to "Salaam Aaya", this sounds like a very promising soundtrack. Gulzaar Saab's lyrics perfectly dance with the melody. Also it's good to hear Sajid-Wajid veer (no pun intended) away from the mainstream sounds they usually use on a soundtrack and bring more classical tones to these songs. They're one of my favorite music duos!

  5. ^LOL Sangeet Saab is so punny. If only Vinod Rathod was being featured as well, I like his deep baritone!
