(1) Personally, very little new/ contemporary music I follow/ listen. The 60's/ 70's take up a large slice of my listening time. I do not have anythg against new music. Infact, some of the new singers exude amazing talents but the fact remains that given a choice, I do not mind listening to an old song, perhaps for the 1000th time than experimenting with a new one.
(2) This catchy tune is something I got hooked on to since its release in 2008, probably because KK sounded like Kishore to me & the whole song reminded me of some old R.D. Burman duet.
(3) Suggested it to Piyali-jee some time ago & we then started working on it. Was challenging in its own way for both of us, like all others, of course.
(4) What made a huge difference here is that the mixing turned out really good in my opinion, anytime better than all our previous duets. Obviously, neither me nor Piyali-jee have any hand in the mixing & cannot claim any credits (lol:-). A friendly gesture by a friend. Cant go further than that.
(5) Piyali-jee takes full credits for the video wch she created & can be found here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fxvTCWVWvZc
(6) My appreciation, once again to Piyali-jee for singing this with me & in such freewheeling manner.
