Chura liya

Lyrics & Chords

This song needs no introduction and as far as my attempt goes, I have stepped out of my comfort zone, I should say. I hope I have done some justice to this song.

My special thanks to Sudha for her valuable input and it has made a big difference between my first take and the latest. For a change, did a few re-takes with this one but not sure if I will do so in the future (it is a lot of work :)).

Please listen to it when you get a chance and would love to see your feedback.

Uthra….wow ….I guess this is the first time you are attempting a hindi song. Great attempt….loved it….your really connected with the soul of the song….loved the throw….more hindi please. All those re-takes dont go in vain, even I do a lot of retakes…there is no harm as long as you dont punch or patch :-) Loved it very much.

Uthra – Very good singing and well modulated – worth the retakes Uthra!.The badal ke line sounded v cute, but the shortened sanam sounded abrupt. In the mix, your voice seemed a bit away, if you get what i mean. And my mixing knowhow being topnotch(!), cant tell what needs to be done to fix that.

Very nice rendition, Uthra! Nice modulations:) The scale seemed a little high for you…
Glad you have started attempting hindi numbers as well:)

Uthra said

Thank you everyone. I am happy to see your comments.
Harshan: Yet another encouraging comment from you. thanks for liking and favouriting it.
Ibolya: Welcome to my space. Thank you.
Rads: Oh no, don’t tell me that I have to do many re-takes for each song (just kidding) but am glad to see your comment. This is the first song where I really spent a lot of time singing and recording. Well, mixing is another department. Will write to you offline. Sanam… Asha sings sanam different in the original and my attempt sounds like an abrupt ending :))
Vidya, Saqib: Thanks.

Thanks to all those who liked it. I think this is the first time my song is getting many ‘liked’ feedback :)

One of the songs which I have listened to, in a loop… Got instigated to listen to this cover version of yours on seeing the notification… :-) A Valiant choice to start ur count of hindi covers… It was pretty evident that the scale scorched you to work-with… But liked ur cuteness-layered singing and ‘sanam’ definitely sounded odd bringing your authentic, seasoned voice to the front… Nonetheless discounting it, this was fabulous and I enjoyed listening to this… Yet to listen to your, ‘Panneeril nanaintha’ which happens to my fav as well… Keep rocking… Good Luck…

Uthra, Nice to hear something different from you. Well sung, but the voice mixing was not good enough. Keep singing hindi-you can certainly do within your comfort zone. Congrats!

Sojanji: Thanks for the nice comment.
Raj: Thanks again.
Nivedan: Welcome to my space. Thank you.
Sukumar: Thanks.

Thanks to all those who ‘liked’ it.


Sudha Kumar (back to listen to all of you..) said

Pleasure to have listened to this beautiful melody, Uthra. I am so happy with how expressively you’ve sung, and given all those Asha touches. Kudos on attempting this pitch – 1/2 a note lower and you would have effortlessly cruised through. :-)
Enjoyed this a lot,
