August 29, 2010

Rahman, who performed the song titled “Jiyo, Utho, Bado, Jeeto” to a cheering crowd, said he hoped “people like it and it becomes the spirit of whole Commonwealth Games.”

Listen to the song by going to the official site here and tell us if you like it or not.


It’s not Rahman’s best effort but am sure it will grow on listeners soon. Surely not as cheesy as the other Delhi song being played out on TV.

With all due respect…… CWG has already created a bad impression in the mind amongst us. as the saying goes anything associated with it becomes even worse….. which may be the reason why the song didn’t click.
