An Asha song to commemorate her birthday yesterday. It does not get better than this. While the complexity of Pancham's music and Gulzar's lyrics endears the song to music buffs, Asha's deceptively relaxed singing style makes it accessible to a many more people. She did have some help from technology - the fact that Pancham mixed two separate vocal tracks is obvious in the harmony sections (Rehne Do...). This song is said to have been inspired by Horsell Common and the Heat Ray but the similarity is really faint.

While recording this song, R.D. Burman had Asha Bhosle leave certain lines at points that seemed incomplete. When a puzzled Gulzar asked him why he was doing that, Pancham brushed him aside. In the final form of the song, Pancham "filled up" the song by mixing two Asha vocal tracks to create a unique harmony effect. He then offered this song as a challenge to Gulzar. Gulzar had given Pancham difficult lyrics to compose to in "Mera Kuch Saamaan" in the same movie and Pancham got back at him by giving him this song which was very difficult to shoot![MR2]
