1. Laung Da Lashkara - Listen here

Singer: Jassi and Mahalaxmi Iyer

Lyricist: Anvita Dutt Guptan

The first in the line is `Laung Da Lashkara'. Obviously the title track is about Patiala, pyar and peg.The song takes no time to pump the Punjabi feel in your marrows, and wins you over with its
romantic lyrics. Punjabi singer Jassi and Mahalaxmi Iyer form a terrific combination but it is Hard
kaur who steals the show with her saucy rap. The remix version is also very entertaining.

2. Kyun Main Jaagoon - Listen here

Singer: Shafqat Amanat Ali

Lyrics: Anvita Dutt Guptan

Shafqat Amanat Ali brings to you the most emotional number of the album, Kyun Main Jaagoon. The song is an eclectic mix of sufi and rock music. Kyun Main Jaagoon-Unplugged version is on the same melancholic strain, and will find its takers. The same song also has a remix version which

3. Rola Pe Gaya - Listen here

Singer: Shankar Mahadevan, Mahalashmi Iyer, Hard Kaur, Earl, Master Saleem

Lyrics: Anvita Dutt Guptan

After cashing in on the Punjabi dance number Laung Da Laskhara, the album also has Rola Pe Gaya. Though the song is high on beats and bouncy music, it will fail to enamour the listeners. Sometimes too much of a thing spoils the show and that is the case with the song that has five singers including Shankar Mahadevan, Hard Kaur and Mahalaxmi Iyer. If the original falls short what wonder can the remix do!

4. Aadat Hai Voh - Listen here

Singer: Vishal Dadlani 

Lyrics: Anvita Dutt Guptan

Aadat Hai Woh comes with the typical Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy flavour of music. The song is a melodious treat for music lovers but what will come as a surprise is Vishal Dadlani's voice. The versatile artist has made the number a mesmerizing experience with his distinct vocals.

Being different is one thing, but over-experimentation with a masala Bollywood film song can be
plain futile. Baby When You Talk to Me takes its inspiration from the disco music, but the treatment is contemporary as Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy has also introduced the element of pop and Bollywood music to the song. Yes, the song is an amazing one and so is the remix version soused in disco essence. Savour it!

5. Tumba Tumba - Listen here

Singer: Hans Raj Hans

Lyrics: Anvita Dutt Guptan

Tumba Tumba is a song to experience in the voice of the Punjabi singer Hans Raj Hans. The song's lyrics and its music will cast a magical spell on you. The less said the better about Tumba! Thankfully! This riveting song has no remix.

6. Aval Allah - Listen here

Singer: Richa Sharma

Lyrics: Anvita Dutt Guptan

Aval Allah will take you to a different zone with its quasi-classical music. Riha Sharma with her
trained vocals and a long experience of singing bhajans can only belt out a song like this. Her voice resonates to stir your heart and you close your eyes and just listen to this song, completely absorbed by it.
