You Never Miss?

And You’ll Be
Like Clementine

A Social
Conscience?

Better Late
Than Never?

Neighbourhood
Watch

One Out,
One In

Out Of
Your Shade

Into Twilight

You Are There

Daddy’s Girl
Has Fallen Down

Aap Jaisa Koi

I’d Forgotten Just How Beautiful You Are

Commentary

this is a really famous song yet completely unfamiliar to many westerners.  An early 1980s Bollywood disco hit for British-born Pakistani teenager Nazia Hassan, I loved its optimistic bounce & decided to put my own spin on it, with versions in both Hindu/Urdu & English.  "If somebody just like you came into my life, my life would be made."   I recorded 1 version in Hindi & 1 English translation; the former is probably the best cover version I've ever done.





If somebody just like you came into my life
my life would be made.


Flower to spring

Spring to orchard

Heart to heart

and body to body.

Everybody wants union of bodies and hearts.

I wish that you'd feel the same way about me.

My life would be made.


If somebody just like you came into my life
my life would be made.


Human am I.

An angel I'm not.

 It's way too early for you to be leaving.

My lonely heart, without love, can't manage on its own.

There's no-one like you.

My heart finds you in all things.

My life would be made.


If somebody just like you came into my life
my life would be made.
