Song by Song: You get me rocking & reeling (Billu Barber)

Pritam and Neeraj Shridhar is a combination that almost never fails. And this time, as Sayeed Quadri writes lyrics for this always hit combination in You get me rocking and reeling, the result is a soothing-slow-romantic-foot-tapping dance number that one would love almost instantly, especially after seeing Shahrukh Khan dancing to the tune with Priyanka Chopra.

The song is a quite typical Neeraj Shridhar song with rap 'n' all but has more to it this time. Not only the level of lyrics has gone one step higher, Neeraj gets Urdu words like khudaya khair, not quite typical of him.

The song has two remix versions. One is a normal remix where just the speed of the song is increased and the song ends in 4 minutes and 5 seconds instead of 4 minutes and 49 seconds and some extra instruments are added. In fact, original song sounds much better than this one even though fast speed also suits this song.

The other one is a video edit for which Dominique is also credited along with Neeraj as she sings a few lines in the video edit. The original version doesn't bear her name as she gives only vocals there along with rap. This version is almost the same as the original except for Dominique's lines.

To sum up, You get me rocking and reeling is a beautiful song. Listen to it to love it. Or still better, see it if you are an SRK fan. (-:-)
