Yeh Haseen Waadiyaan / यह हसीं वादियां (from Roja)


Looking for Yeh Haseen Waadiyaan translated to English? Try the HindiLyrics.net.
yeh haseen waadiyaan
yeh khula aasmaan
aa gaye hum kahan
ae mere saajnaa
in bahaaron mein dil ki kali khil gayi
mujhko tum jo mile har khushi mil gayi

tere honthon pe hai husn ki bijliyaan
tere gaalon pe hai zulf ki badaliyaan
tere daaman ki khushboo se maheke chaman
sange marmar ke jaisa yeh tera badan

mere jaane jaan
main teri chaandni
chhed do tum aaj koi
pyaar ki raagini

yeh haseen waadiyaan
yeh khula aasmaan

aa gaye hum kahan
ae mere saajnaa

yeh bandhan hai pyaar ka
dekho toote naa sajni

yeh janmon ka saath hai
dekho chhoote naa sajnaa

tere aanchal ki chhaaon ke tale
meri manzil mujhe milgayi

tere palkon ki chhaaon ke tale
mohabbat mujhe milgayi

yeh haseen waadiyaan
yeh khula aasmaan

aa gaye hum kahan
ae mere saajnaa

yeh bahaaron mein dil ki kali khil gayi

mujhko tum jo mile har khushi mil gayi

yeh haseen waadiyaan
yeh khula aasmaan

aa gaye hum kahan
ae mere saajnaa

jee karta hai saajnaa
dil mein tumko bithaa loon

aa masti ki raat mein
apna tumko banaa loon

uthne lage hai toofaan kyoon
mere seene mein ae sanam

tumhe chaahoonga dilon-jaaon se
meri jaane jaan teri kasam

yeh haseen waadiyaan
yeh khula aasmaan

aa gaye hum kahan
ae mere jaane jaan

in bahaaron mein dil ki kali khil gayi

mujhko tum jo mile har khushi mil gayi

mere jaane jaan
main teri chaandni
chhed do tum aaj koi
pyaar ki raagini

yeh haseen waadiyaan

yeh khula aasmaan

aa gaye hum kahan

ae mere saajnaa

yeh haseen waadiyaan

yeh khula aasmaan

aa gaye hum kahan

ae mere saajnaa

Light Your Phones Up

From Jernade Miah, London-based UK Desi artist with pop, R&B, urban and hip hop influences:



If you ever been in love before,
let me tell you how it goes:
it hits you like a tidal wave.
Before you know it you're swept away.

You walk, you run, you fall,
get up and brush it off.
You win, you lose,
in time you choose
the one you risk it all
for, all for.
Could it be you?
It's gotta be you, oh.

(Chorus)
So light your phones up, if you love somebody,
I mean if you really love somebody,
let me see your hands in the air right now,
you could show the world that you care right now, oh.
If you love somebody,
I mean if you really love somebody,
let me see your hands in the air right now,
light your phones up if you care right now, oh.
So light your phones up, oh, oh, oh, yeah.

I can get you through your darkest nights,
always be by your side,
I know it gets hard at times,
wish I had the answers why.
If your back's against the wall
and you think you lost it all,
just turn your head
and I'll be there to catch you when you fall, fall.
Could it be you?
It's gotta be you, oh.

[Chorus]

I'm reaching out to hearts tonight,
from city streets to countrysides,
wherever you are, I'll never be far.

[Chorus]

Ab Mere Paas Tum Aayee Ho / अब मेरे पास तुम आये हो

Thank you for sharing the beauty of your voice and spirit with the world, Jagjit Singh. You will be missed.



ab mere paas tum aayee ho to kya aayee ho
maine maana ke tum ik paikar-e-raanaee ho
chaman-e-daher mein rooh-e-chamanarayee ho
tallat-e-meher ho firdaus ki barnai ho
bint-e-mehtaab ho gardoo se utar aayee ho
mujhse milne mein abandesha-e-ruswaayee hai
maine khud apne kiye ki ye saza paayee hai
ab mere paas tum aayee ho to kya aayee ho

un dino mujpe qayamat ka junoon taari thaa
sar pe sarshaari-o-ishrat ka junoon taari thaa
maahpaaron se mohabbat ka junoon taari thaa
shehri yaaron se raqabat ka junoon taari thaa
bistar-e-makhmal-o-sanjaab thee duniya meri
ek rangeen-o-haseeN khwaab thee duniya meri

kya sunogi meri majrooh jawaani ki pukaar
meri fariyaad-e-jigar doz mera lala-e-zaar
shiddhat-e-kard mein doobi huyee meri guftaar
main ke khud apne mazak-e-tarabgee ka shikaar
wo gudaaz-e-dil-e-marhoom kahan se laaoon
ab mein wo zazba-e-masoom kahan se laaoon
ab mere pass tum aayee ho to kya aayee ho

By Jagjit Singh, with lyrics by Majaz, from the album The Best Of Kahkashan.

One More Dance

One More Dance by Mumzy Stranger, produced by Rishi Rich Productions, is fresh and addictive. Definitely worthy of a few listens and views, and a buy on iTunes or elsewhere, this song was a big summer song in the UK, in 2009...

A Super Thanks to RR for the official lyrics, below:


Verse 1
Do you remember the day girl,
When we were dancing away girl,
You never told me your name no,
I can't believe that I let you go,

Bridge

Now I see you again,
thinking this could happen,
Can we take a walk and dance in the rain,
Maybe this is something,
That you just ain’t feeling,
But I got to know...

Chorus

Just gimmi one more dance,
Gimmi one more dance,
Just gimmi one more dance,
Gimmi one more dance,

Verse 2

I got this feeling you want me,
From your eyes I can see that you’re ready,
This could be something amazing,
For you and me what you saying...

Bridge

Now I see you again,
thinking this could happen,
Can we take a walk and dance in the rain,
Maybe this is something,
That you just ain’t feeling,
But I got to know...

Double Chorus

Just gimmi one more dance,
I just want you know girl,
Gimmi one more dance,
Your the one that want girl,
Just gimmi one more dance,
Let's rendezvous ooh girl,
Gimmi one more dance...

The value of this song, and its video, will take you by surprise. It's all in the details. In the song, it's Mumzy's range-y tenor and tender phrasing, the melody's complex percussive quality, the choral arrangement, and the mix, with a bass-supported dance beat running over Asian-inflected digital percussion, that make the difference. In the vid, it's charm of Mumzy and the lady he dances with, the body language and looks, the dancing itself, the camera angles, lighting, special effects, editing, and initial concept on which the video was built. Excellent production values for sound, video and marketing, are part of the Rishi Rich Productions approach.
