Info: They say “Every dog has a day”, but it’s turned out to be quite in contrary for those who have barked, bit & behaved like dogs in our beautiful country and in the process have mercilessly ruined the country, flouted the law to no end & have become part of mafias that have participated in systematic destruction of our institutions with their personal vested interests reigning supreme!

Music in the Naughties: A turbulant soundtrack

January 10, 2010

By Madeeha Syed

With 2010 slated to be a comeback year for the music industry – provided everything goes as planned – here is a concise look at Pakistani pop music this past decade

From 2000 to 2001: Slow beginnings

Pakistani rock phenomenon Junoon was at the peak of its glory and had just released an album titled Millenium Edition, a compilation album which contained 12 previously released popular Junoon songs. The album also contained a live version of Allah Hu and Laal Meri Patt as well as a song titled Azadi – a somewhat haunting number – which they did for the soundtrack of Jamil Dehlavi’s film, Jinnah. The year 2000 also marked Junoon’s decade as a band in the industry. Pakistani pop band Strings got together after a hiatus of eight years and released Duur (which was later re-released in early 2002). The first single from the album Sar Kiye Yeh Pahar was a massive hit which was later followed by the hugely popular title track Duur. Although the reformed band was two members less and now consisted only of Bilal Maqsood and Faisal Kapadia, Duur marked a very strong and popularly-received comeback of the band.
