Annu Malik NEWMangal Pandey (Super Hits, India, 1982)
This time it’s not RD Burman, nor Kalyanji nor Bappi Lahiri…but Annu Malik ! This composer is not very well known because he has not written as many soundtracks as the three others…but his material is interesting. “No Parking No Parking” has two versions, one with female vocals by Sharon Prabhakar, and one instrumental (offered here as a soundclip). Groovy bass, afro percussion, wah wah guitar, heavy beat, kind of exotic house, isn’t it ? And a surprising funky steel band part before the chorus… Really amazing, and in superb condition !
