“Baatein Kuchh Ankahi Si” from Life in a…. Metro

Adnan Sami

There are two different versions of this song in Metro, but by all means I think Adnan Sami’s voice suits the song very much. And Adnan’s song is in C, the other version is in A. It sounds better in this scale, that’s my opinion. A nice harmonica adds to the bluesy feel of Adnan Sami’s singing. (of course there is harmonica on other version too). The harmony in the song is a must, it lends so well to do harmony on part ‘wo ho ho … shayad ye hi hai pyar’!

Once again, I am not sure about the *origin* of the song, but its yet another superb song from one of the best movie album in recent years.

The song has enough opportunity for vocals improvisation. Vocals harmony adds a lot to the song. I am transcrbing the chords for the grittier version of the song by Adnan Sami, however, if you must play the version which they filmed on, then just transpose everything to A.

The concept of Band Metro was very unique and done with a cinematic style, never tried before in Hindi movies. It suits the movie very well.
