Tanha Tanha (Rangeela) - Cover

Lyrics & Chords

Rangeela was a revolutionary album for Hindi film music….ARR’s first original Hindi score was for this film. I remember repeatedly listening to these songs those days :-)

Asha Bhonsle sang two popular numbers in this movie, “Tanha Tanha” and “Rangeela Re”. I recently went to see her perform live here in the Bay Area. She is 75 years old now, which means she was 60 when she sang this one! She was fabulous on her show as well!

Here is my humble attempt at this one.

Film: Rangeela (1995)
Song: Tanha Tanha
Music: A R Rahman
Lyrics: Mehboob
Original Singer: Asha Bhonsle
Cover by: Smitha
Mixed by: Smitha

Very well done Smitha. Was a very tight cover. Asha Bhosle songs suit you the best hands down (I know many have told u this)

From a mix perspective, your voice sounds a little muffled on this one. Not sure why. But the vocals are sitting better in this mix. Too much reverb though.

LIKED.

Very nicely sung Smitha…and liked your song selection! :) Asha songs are a favorite to me! :)
I don’t know much to comment on the technical stuff, but liked your tone. Indeed, it sounded like the young Ashaji’s singing.
Loved the line ‘Yeh zindagi to waise ek sazaa hai’….

One of my most fav songs from the album! Don’t want to state the obvious about Asha songs being your forte :)

Enjoyed this one, agree with voice being muffled, but nothing that takes away the charm of your rendition though

Liked….

Excellent energy in delivering this song, Smitha! Being one my my favs from the ARR-Ashaji combo, I thoroughly enjoyed it. You handled the higher registers very well. The very last “Baat hai” could be better. Minor offnotes can be overlooked considering how well you have carried the song.

LIKED it! :)

Smitha,

Listening to you after quite a while……and you have done full justice to the original song……the voice sounded so different from your previous uploads….

The high notes in the antras were fabulously done…….felt the vocals were sounding a little lower than the music track….

Liked it……

Wow beautiful song in a voice not much lesser than the original number. The vocals were a little suppressed I felt, a slight addition of highpass would have contributed to the beauty of it. However, lovely rendition sung with excellent energy overall. Loved it!

Your knowledge and confidence is so high that it seems you have taken the original song and slightly worked upon the pitch of Asha Bhonsle and posted. Not kidding. Beautiful rendition.
