December 21, 2011

Artists: Momina Mustehsan with Usman Sohail (from Mohenjo Daro)

Song: Sajna

Album: Junoon’s 20th Anniversary

All the instruments (live & sequenced) were done by Usman, arranged by Usman and Momina, mixed by Usman and Xulfi, and mastered by Xulfi.

Salman Ahmad is more than impressed by Momina’s version of this song. He was full of praise for her in an email:

“It gives me great pleasure to introduce you to a very talented 19 year old Pakistani singer. Momina is a student of mine and has chosen to interpret Sajna (Junoon/Parvaaz) with a very Junooni-Goth-rock version.

In addition to studying bio medical engineering and business at Stony Brook college, Momina’s also learning classical singing along with her passion for Rock guitar. Move over Lacuna Coil & Rihanna here comes Momina!”

Sajna is a part of Junoon’s 20th Anniversary Album which will be launched by SSGWI/EMI on December 21st at Marriott in Karachi. All proceeds from the album will go to charity. All the artists have generously donated their talent for this SSGWI project to help raise awareness & rehabilitate Pakistan flood victims.

Lyrics:

Duniya ko thukraoon gee
Teri muhabbat main bolay gaa tu
Main sab say takraoon gee
Taaray bhi le aaon gee
Main aasmanon say bolay gaa tu chanda bhi le aaon gee

Pyaar main jhoot bhi boloon gee
Meri chahat hai ajeeb
Aur rakhoon gee sada main tujhe
Apnay dil kay qareeb

Sajna sajna itni bhi hoon kab deevanee
Sajna sajna jaa
Sajna sajna aisi kab hoon jaisi hoon main
Sajna sajna jaa

Kab tak main samjhoon gee
Dil ko jaloon gee
Tarpaoon gee
Raahon main reh jaoon gee

Kab tak main bhatkaoon gee
Khud ko andheron main bikhraoon gee
Tarsoon gee
Marr jaoon gee

Yeh nahin ho sakay gaa kabhi
Itni pagal main nahin
Tu haseen hai magar
Yeh to kuch bhi nahin

Sajna sajna aisi kab hoon jaisi hoon main
Sajna sajna jaa
Sajna sajna sach to yeh hai jhooti hoon main
Sajna sajna jaa

Yeh nahin ho sakay gaa kabhi
Itni pagal main nahin
Tu haseen hai magar
Yeh to kuch bhi nahin

Sajna sajna itni bhi hoon kab deevanee
Sajna sajna jaa
Sajna sajna aisi kab hoon jaisi hoon main
Sajna sajna jaa

Sajna sajna itni bhi hoon kab deevanee
Sajna sajna jaa
Sajna sajna sach to yeh hai jhooti hoon main
Sajna sajna jaa
