Jaan Pehechan Ho!

I’m sitting here Saturday night watching NatGeo, and what comes on but a Heineken commercial, depicting a dreamlike bizarre nightclub, and the music is Jaan Pehechan Ho. (!) If you saw Ghost World you know the music. Yes, I’m one of those people who love that wacky music video.
That is SO cool. There is hope for the world after all.

.

However, there is no hope for you Treacherous Cretin - you’re Identity has been revealed. The Illuminati are on their way to the Inland Empire as we speak.

Goofy commercial, but the song is pretty earwormy.

Come on now, you can’t start a thread about that song and not include a link! I referenced it in a fairly recent thread too. Love it!

I was part of that thread, and hoped you would notice this one.

.

Oh yeah, I didn’t scroll down, silly me. You were a very important part of that thread. Thanks for the translation!

I’m not gonna bother searching as I’m sure it hasn’t survived but ten years or so ago when Ghost World was on HBO I posted here (one of my first posts) asking if anyone knew Hindi and could translate it. As I recall the lyrics were pretty lightweight…

That commercial made me decide that if I ever drink beer it will be Heineken, and the music is a big part of its appeal.

Here’s one of the rough translations I’ve found online.
*Jaan Pehechan Ho,
Jeena Aasaan Ho,
*Let’s get to know each other
It will make life easier

*Jaan Pehechan Ho,
Jeena Aasaan Ho,

Dil Ko Churane Walon,
Aankh Na Churavo,
Naam Tho Batavo…
*
Oh you heart-stealer
Don’t shy away
Tell me your name

*Jaan Pehechan Ho…

Dil Ko Churane Walon,
Aankh Na Churavo,
Naam Tho Batavo…
Jaan Pehechan Ho,
Jeena Aasaan Ho,

Aaj Ki Yeh Shaam Javan,
Yun Na Chali Jaaye,
Aaj Ki Yeh Shaam Javan,
Yun Na Chali Jaaye,

*The evening is young
Don’t let it go to waste

*Phir Se Na Aayegi Yeh Kisi Ke Bulaaye
Phir Se Na Aayegi Yeh Kisi Ke Bulaaye
Phir Se Na Aayegi Yeh Kisi Ke Bulaaye

*We can’t bring it back again

*Jaan Pehechan Ho…

Dil Ko Churane Walon,
Aankh Na Churavo,
Naam Tho Batavo…
Jaan Pehechan Ho,
Jeena Aasaan Ho,

Bolo Yeh Na Bolo Tum,
Hogaye Ishaare,
Bolo Yeh Na Bolo Tum,
Hogaye Ishaare,

*Whether or not you admit it
Hints have been dropped

*Sidi Sidi Chot Huve Dil Pe Hamaare
Sidi Sidi Chot Huve Dil Pe Hamaare
Sidi Sidi Chot Huve Dil Pe Hamaare

*Pain went straight to my heart

*Jaan Pehechan Ho…
*

It’s been in my mP3 rotation since Ghost World. Solid tune.

Love this. It’s been a staple of my Youtube playlist for years.

Yeah!! That was great.

Can you tell us anything about it? (I’m too lazy to plow through YouTube comments.)

Never mind. I wasn’t too lazy to google.
