Contest now closed and in progress. Many thanks to the participants.

So far I will be only the third member ever to record this song and it's not just the fact that the lyrics are in four languages (none of which are in English) which makes it a challenge to sing but also the timing which has to be precise. Took me about seven attempts to record and it's far from perfect but at least I can tick the song off from the to-do list.

"Jai Ho" is a song composed by A. R. Rahman for the 2008 Academy-award winning film, Slumdog Millionaire. The song features lyrics in Hindi, Urdu, Punjabi (three of the major languages of India - there are at least 800 languages and dialects spoken in the country) and Spanish. The title is a Hindi phrase which can be roughly translated as "Let there be victory".

"Jai Ho" received universally favorable reviews from music critics and won an Academy Award for Best Original Song and a Grammy Award for Best Song Written for a Motion Picture, Television or Other Visual Media. It was also the official campaign song of the Indian National Congress during the 2009 election.

Thank you for listening.

English translation of lyrics:

Victory to thee, Victory to thee, Victory to thee, Victory to thee
Come come below the decorated tent of life
Come below blue sky decorated with 'jari' threads
Victory to thee, Victory to thee

Come come below the decorated tent of life
Come below blue sky decorated with 'jari' threads
Victory to thee, Victory to thee
Victory to thee, Victory to thee, Victory to thee...

Slowly Slowly Really I lost my life
Spent my nights dancing on coal
I blew the sleep in my eyes with air from my mouth
I burned my finger with blue star
Come come below the decorated tent of life
Come below blue sky decorated with 'jari' threads
Victory to thee...

Dance! Dance!
Now with me, you dance for today
For our day of moves
whatever problems may be
Cheers!
Dance! Dance!

Victory to thee...

Taste it, yes taste it, this night is honey, taste it
Keep it, yes this is heart, heart is last limit.. Keep it
(your) Black Black eyeliner - is it your black magic?

(your) Black Black eyeliner - is it your black magic?
Come come below the decorated tent of life
Come below blue sky decorated with 'jari' threads
Victory to thee...

Since when, yes since when, you have stopped at my lips.. since when
Since when, yes since when, (your) eyes are closed.. since when
Like this, Like this, lightening eyes, making both lightened, yes, yes, what?
Come come below the decorated tent of life
Come below blue sky decorated with 'jari' threads
Victory to thee...

Dance dance
Victory to thee
Dance dance
Victory to thee
