Day 12: A song from your preteen years

The soundtrack to Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters

Only kidding! Well, back then, I loved the Backstreet Boys, discovered Depeche Mode, enjoyed 80’s music, but I’ll have to go with ‘Chaiyya Chaiyya’ from the movie Dil Se which I have not seen up to this day. Wait, was I even a preteen when this came out? Ah, well, this was one of the songs that took the globe by storm and regardless of language and regardless of the movie bombing at the Box Office, everyone knew the lyrics to this song regardless of language. 

The song was composed by A.R. Rahman, written by Gulzar, and sung by Sukhwinder Singh and Sapna Awasthi. Farah Khan was the woman behind the brilliant choreography that saw Shah Rukh Khan and Malaika Arora Khan dance on top of a moving train. Well, SRK, because according to him all the dancers were tied to the moving train except him. The choreography was stunning and as the train rolled through Tamil Nadu (southern India), one can only marvel at such beauty. 

Jinke sar ho ishq ki chaaon
Paaon ke neeche jaanat hogi
Jinke sar ho ishq ki chaaon

Chal chaiyya chaiyya chaiyya chaiyya
Chal chaiyya chaiyya chaiyya chaiyya

  1. Interesting topic…Depeche Mode!!
    Personally, I didn’t really get into music until I was 13, where I bought my first piece of music — Lil Wayne’s ‘The Block is Hot’. Yea I was into rap haha, among other genres.
