Tu jo nahin [Woh Lamhe (2006)] Music .. Pritam

Pritam has been given 'recreating' credit for this song, so he gets to face the music for this lift, perhaps along with the Bhatts!

Listen to Tu jo nahin (Woh Lamhe) | Tu jo nahin (SB John)

I suppose its the Bhatts who started this ridiculous trend of ignoring the real composer and crediting another as 'music arranged by'. This trend continues in Woh Lamhe, where Pritam is credited for composing 2 tracks (out of which one has already proven to be a lift!), while he's given arranging credits for a couple of other tracks. One of them happens to be the 50s sounding ghazal-like 'Tu jo nahin', sung by Glenn John. Its ironical and perhaps an attempt to compensate the lift that Glenn sings this, because his father sang this way back in 1959. Sunny Benjamin John (SB John), a very popular singer from Pakistan is the original singer in 1959 for a Pakistani film called 'Sawera' and this song is supposed to be his signature tune. And its very unfortunate that the Bhatts and the audio company chose to ignore him and the original composer (couldn't trace his name yet!) in the credits!
