Sapnon se Bhare Naina - Luck by Chance (Female take)
Lyrics & Chords
Movie : Luck By Chance
Music Director : Shankar Ehsaan & Loy
Singer(s) : Shankar Mahadevan
Lyricists : Javed Akhtar
A completely western fusion take on classical Raag Bhairavi. Fabulous track with bass guitar chords throughout topped with Shankar Mahadevan’s brilliant bold vocals. The Pièce de résistance of course is the classic improv-style Sargams infused by Shankarji into the middle of the song, and the high notes. What an insanely amazing artiste the world has obtained in Shankar Mahadevan.
The lyrics, as always beautifully penned by Javed Akhtar, talk about the relentless pursuit of one (in this instance, a wannabe Bollywood actor) in search of their dreams. Eyes are filled with dreams, and there is many a sleepless night, but one must not give up for the sake of those awake eyes.
To quote the words of Tagore…
“I have become my own version of an optimist. If I can’t make it through one door, I’ll go through another door — or I’ll make a door. Something terrific will come no matter how dark the present.”
Coming to the composition, the tune is reasonably simple, except for a few tricky upward slides and drops. What I found challenging was the rockish beats to which it is sung – felt like a train ride from slow sleeper to a Shatabdi Express ride! And the track is pretty noisy… so please bear with that.
I listened to contestants on SRGMP and Chote Ustaad sing this, and they were awesome with their live performances…
Here is my lame and brave attempt. I have taken the liberty to add some variations with descents, harkats and also in the sargam. Hope you find it listenable. :-)
Rahul(AJ) has taken the time to clean up the k-track and make a great mix for me. Do check his version as well, for a better quality listen. Thanks so much Rahul.
As always, I appreciate all your valuable and encouraging f/bs.
