This months favourite golden oldie song is technically still a new one (roughly 6 months old), but I have decided to include it, as it has emerged as one of my favourite Bollywood songs of this year, and I have a feeling it will stay in my playlists for quite sometime. The song is the melodious Haareya from Meri Pyari Bindu.
Haareya – Meri Pyari Bindu
Lyrics: Priya Saraiya
While I don’t consider myself to be a die hard Arijit Singh fan, I do occasionally like his releases and Haareya is one of them. It is a very simple song, but has a strong melody with meaningful, romantic lyrics and this combination is extremely rare to find these days in Bollywood Music. Sachin-Jigar excel in this genre as composers (as previously heard in their songs like Jeena Jeena, Badlapur and Toota Jo Kabhi Tara from Flying Jatt). I recently discovered that this song also has a rock version which has been sung by Ayushmann Khuarana. I am rather surprised that the creators decided to create a rock version of Haareya, as it is not a Rock song in the first place. They would have been better of releasing a B side of the track, with Ayushmann’s vocals.
