or, the full version of that written-long-ago-and-lingering-on-my-cell Aasraa review which, it turns out, is not actually an Aasraa review. Tell me what you make of it.
Because I've no clue what else to do with it...I turn it over to you.
Power Ballad is warm - it reverberates with passion, a raw power - you don't know what it is, it's something - otherworldly, perhaps, but it translates itself as heat - it vibrates through you to the point where your eyes glow and leaves you gasping...
Dil Ibaadat is cold; its power lies in its chilling you to the depths of your soul, until you want nothing more than to be warm again. And then it tantalizes you with fragments of the warmth you crave, makes your agony all the more potent...
Aasraa is both - and it's neither. Aasraa's passion, its valiant desperation has tangible warmth, and yet running through the music there's an undercurrent of frigid fear...And just beneath that flows more warmth, warmth that isn't passion or comfort, warmth that's electronic, not emotional...It's separate, always separate, but it's there, all the layers are there, and that aura has got to be translated, got to be kept, how are you going to make them see?
Can you tell I was half asleep and half delirious when I first wrote it?

Power Ballad: I don't know if I have told you this - but there are a few songs of his which I feel he himself cannot emulate. They are: Tadap Tadap, Alvida, Dil Ibaadat Rock, O' Mama and Power Ballad (and Cineraria to quite an extent).
Some things can be done just once. The sentiment attached with these is amazingly special. And when I say KK himself can't repeat something he's done, that eliminates the possibility of any other artiste even trying.
Dil Ibaadat: Dil Ibaadat is effortless (not that most of his songs aren't), but this one's that kind of effortless, the kind of effortless magicians portray they are.
One of my friends said to me the other day, "Mera ek dost hai, Delhi ka...wahaan log KK ko baaki shehron se better jaante hain. He's an aspiring singer, but he says KK ke songs nahin try karta main, nahin hota mujhse."
I've seen people try O Meri Jaan (Metro), Alvida, Tadap Tadap, Ajab Si, Aashaaein and even Zara Si, on reality shows. And each time after they finished, I've had to listen to the original to distill the effect they had on my psyche.
Aasraa: It's difficult to describe this one. More so, because, firstly, I'm by no means a writer and secondly, I would have done better if I had been through the agony this song describes.
It's here that he freakin' outdoes everybody - he can emote like he's been through every-bloody-thing a human being can ever come across. It's pure supernatural-ism (if that's a word).
"...rehne ko tere baa-aheeinn mile..."
And, "...jaa-naa hai kahaan..." XD
