Music business is a weird circus . Sometimes one has to keep juggling all his life and yet not be able strike the right chord with the masses . On the other hand some guys have all the luck . They come ,they croon and they conquer .Hence the term "One Hit Wonders" . Hassan Jahangir is one such phenomenon of one such song. His first Hawa Hawa ,right after its release ,earned him the title of king of pop . Hawa Hawa is to-date considered the largest selling song in the history of Pakistani music industry . The song went ballistically to the top charts in India too, catapulting Hassan Jahangir into superstardom .For his part , it was a mere experiment not realizing it would turn out to be a trailblazer for the music map forever.
HH has been covered , ripped and rendered multiple dozen times by artists all over the globe , mostly in india where more than twenty versions of the song were recorded in different languages . Adding one more cover to the silver screen roaster ,titled Tamma Tamma for film Mubarakan featuring Arjun Kapoor the Hawa is blowing all over again for Hassan Jahangir. The remake, despite several fading decades since it's release, simply goes to prove that the song is evergreen and all the credit goes to it's even more evergreen singer Hassan J .
May Hawa Hawa always blow fresh and crisp.
