Song of the Week-end

Aakhri Alvida - Strings (OST - Shootout at Lokhandwala) - pleasantly mellow and rising.

Its so Coldplay. Its just so Coldplay.

And to add to it, Anwar Maqsood's words are truly heart-rendered. Best I've heard in a while. Here's a sample:

Sab yaad hai, jo bandhe the bandhan
Kaajal bhi diya haathon mein kangan,
Mehki rehti thi mehndi,
Gaata rehta tha saawan,
In yaadon ko saapno mein rehne do,
yeh Aakhri Alvida na ho…

Is dard ko dil mein, dil mein rehne do,
Jo khauf hai ankho mein, ankhon se kehne do,
Dukh ki nadi, chup chap behne do,
Jo kehna hai tum dheere se kehdo,
Yeh Aakhri Alvida na ho

Beautifully penned.
