Megha Chhaae (cover version)- Re uploaded

Lyrics & Chords

Instantly fell in love with this melancholic number when I heard it on AmanDeep’s space 2 days ago. Absolutely a masterpiece with regards to rendering and composition. Simple and elegant!

Owing to the fact that this song and the singer are a staple favourite in many souls, I have managed to not bring in too many improvs :) Just a little here and there ….

Here’s my take on it. Hope you get all get to like what you hear :)

Thanks Aman for lending me the track. Listening to your version is what got me to post mine here :D

Movie: Sharmilee
Original music by: S.D.Burman
Originally rendered by: Lata Mangeshkar (a must listen if you haven’t already)
Cover version by: Meera Manohar
Mixed by: Meera Manohar

P.S: Reuploaded here in the original tempo that I did the song in. The k-track I got was way slower than the original and I tried converting the finished mixed version to the original tempo, a mistake :( I am pretty sure that distorted the track a little. And, based on Pradip’s pointers, have also remixed it again. Hopefully sounds better on that front, at the very least

Thank you Sai, lightning speed :) Can you give me timestamps on the flatness ? Would be of great help!

And for the 5!

Great Voice and Rendition,….However when people sing Lataji’s songs , it gets tough….could hear some offnotes , felt you went for controlled singing, could be little openthroated but then again singing Lataji Numbers is a tough call ….wont talk about diction , hope it gets better with more practice….

Would give you 5/5 for singing this beautiful song….

Keep it up

Cheers

Very very soothing to the ears. While Rakesh has already covered the ares to be improved, so not going into this. 5/5

Love this song! Really really nice singing. Felt the “ban” in bairan ban gaye nindiyaas could be better. Really liked your subtle improvs a lot (esp. bata DE mein KYA karoon at 2:40). Blended very well with the song.

Meera – beautiful song and you sounded very very nice on this. Fit your voice very well – thought i heard a minor off at 1:52 – but didnt take away the beauty of the overall rendition. Great job, Meera!

Nicely sung Meera. Improvement areas have been covered already. The vocal levels in the charanams were very high as compared to the track. It was nice overall, just not as good as some of ur previous uploads I guess.

Divine Chechi, Lord Krishna’s Meera,

Wonderful singing as always.

I also felt that some places the voice was not synchronized with the backing track.

This is the first time ever in any of your songs I could see some sort of mixing issue by your standards and benchmark set. Never has this happened before in your songs.

Here are the timings for you divine Chechi if you plan to reupload:
1.12-1.14 – Bataa De (Some sort of double voice came through here I am sure it is a mixing issue here)
2.40-2.42 – Bataa De (Same issue)

Also try to mellow the voice to suite the backing track Chechi as this song will sound superb in your voice with that one mixing change.

I loved your divine voice as always and am waiting for the song Tere Khayaalon Mein Hum which I know will be an IMMORTAL song in your DIVINE VOICE:)

I haven’t been able to get the backing track for that, but have you been able to get one?

Take Care divine soul,
Keep the faith always,
Peace be with you always,
God Bless You and your loved ones….

Ranjit Salian said

5/5 also from me and it goes to my favorites for some divine moments I experienced in the song.

Take Care divine soul,
Keep the faith always,
Peace be with you always,
God Bless You and your loved ones…

Hi Meera!!!
Very very nicely done……but guess the volumes need to be adjusted….coz the mukhra is absolutely fine its only in the antaras the vocal volume’s too high…. but wallah what voice lady??? Very good…… some diction issues which might have caused the offs as others have mentioned…… I liked it…. Agree with Pradip a lil bit……

Very nicely done, Meera.

One of my favourites, and not an easy song to try. Small areas for improvement which others have already mentioned.

IMHO, I think you got down to recording it too fast! I am sure you will max this once you’ve heard it lots of times.

Do also try ‘Nainon mein badra chhaye’ – a Lata – Madan Mohan classic please.

Murali Venkatraman said

Gowri Manohari is an intoxicating ragam. Some of the best numbers in the raga include:

1. kaNNa varuvaaya
2. gowri manohariyai kaNden
3. ponvaanam panneer thoovudhu (by IR…inspired by megha chaE)

Meera: This song has a lot of sustained notes. One thing that you may have noticed in some of the legendary singers renditions is the way they keep the listeners tied up even when they are singing just 1 note. 2 reasons:

1. Clarity of the note
2. the associated volume modulation

For example in kaadhal kavidhaigaL, the syllable “kaa” is stretched so much by SPB but you won’t be bored coz of the curve he gives in the volume.

You have done reasonably well in capturing the volume modulations. However, there are some off-notes like lut gaye sapne saare toot gaye, sabke aangan etc. It is ok to go for a lower pitch and deliver.

Also, the sangathi you give in “aangan jiyaa” is clearly carnatic.

Agree with Pradip that you have done better in other songs. but believe me, this song appears easy, but it ain’t.

Www

Sindhuja Bhakthavatsalam (no longer active on muziboo- pl visit me at http://octaves.blogspot.com) said

Meera, the feel of the song is very very nicely captured.
But, for your voice I think a lower pitch might have been better. And the “ban” in ‘ban gayi nindiya’ I think is a little imprecise. There is one small note in between that seems to be left out. Since that line repeats throughout the song, can’t help noticing :)
And I think the vocal track is still a lot louder than the karaoke.

Meera Manohar said

Murali— thanks for that detailed comment. Got the point ;-) Also, the reason I went in for the original was to get used to singing high pitched songs. My hope is that my voice will get used to those higher registers and open up more. That was my experiment here. Needless to say— it wasn’t that good. But then, I needed to take that chance.

Offs wise— no explanations. No reason it should be there. Will take plenty care next time.

Sindhuja— thank you, glad to know the feel was there. Ban— agree with you, could have way way better. Next time :-)

Nice, Meera, nice.

You really got into the song this time. For want of a better expression, you sounded more ‘chilled out’ this time around.

Fantastic singing in the antaras. I loved the first ‘Bata de mein kya karoon’ till I heard it when you came out of the first antara!

A tip of the bowler to you for this one. And into my F-Box it goes.

PS: Some small diction issues. Will get sorted on its own.

Keep up the good work.
