Anggun, Shreya Ghoshal

Update: As Abhijit Shylanath points out in the comments, the writing credit for “Yeh Ishq Hai” should be Pritam Chakraborty. Shreya Ghoshal is just the singer.
Eleanor sent me Bollywood track “Yeh Ishq Hai” (sung by Shreya Ghoshal) from the film “Jab We Met” and “Être une femme (“Being a Woman”)” by Indonesian/French singer Anggun . Both with pretty similar vocal melodies. I decided to add on Björk’s “Human Behaviour” simply for the timpani sounding beat. I also couldn’t help hearing the melody of Sunny Day Real Estate‘s “Two Promises”.
Anggun also recorded an English version if you’re interested:
Side note: I once set up a show with a band I was in and called it “Indie Rock Night”. A journalist showed up and thought we were going to play Indian music.
