One of Hemant Kumar's top melodious song this is. A very unique song in terms of its orchestration where you will hear prominent bass guitar, a few string instruments but no tabla dholak or drums. Also I felt that the bass guitarist had eye to eye contact with Hemantda while recording this song...allowing Hemantda to extend notes where he enjoyed the most and deemed necessary. This karaoke is also good but has a prominent drum sound in place of bass guitar. I wished I could also extend notes like him but naturally following the perfectly timed beat it would have sounded unnatural so I just followed the beat and sang my heart out. Some songs need that sleep deprived voice...but only the voice, not the presence of mind and I was lucky to have that on that particular day when I recorded my vocals on this track.
Why I adore this song is because of the way Hemantda used to go about joining two words in his typical Bangla style. Many singers join two or more words to give it a continuous flow but no one could do like Hemantda...some thing very folkish, very pleasant and enjoyable. Here in Ya Mujhko~Abhi Chup Rehne Do he joined Mujhko and Abhi with a very pleasing twist that I remembered since long and the main reason for my liking this song and ultimately covering it. Hope friends will enjoy this song in my cover.
