Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

Running to 4 minutes 25 seconds, the love theme "Pehla Pehla Pyar" - also alluded to as "Pehla Pehla Pyaar Hai" and spelt "Pahala Pahala Pyaar Hai" etc, due to its being transliterated from Hindi, is performed in the 1994 film Hum Aapke Hain Kaun...!, ostensibly by Salman Khan to a coy Madhuri Dixit, although the voice is actually that of S.P. Balasubramaniam who over a period of thirty-five years has recorded over 36,000 (thirty-six thousand!) songs, a feat which - unsurprisingly - earned him a place in the Guinness Book Of Records.
The song is fully orchestrated with a choir to boot, apparently all female, and lightly but enticingly choreographed with the sort of enchanting sequences the world has come to expect from Bollywood. There are no less than fourteen songs in this film.
"Pehla Pehla Pyaar" was composed by Ram Laxman with lyrics by Ravender Rawal and Dev Kohli. In English the title can be rendered as "For The Very First Time", which seems most unlikely owing to the then ages of Khan and Dixit, and the professional way in which her suitor throws the young lady over his shoulder and carries her from the kitchen to the billiard table. (thanks, Alexander Baron - London, England, for all above)

Writing great prog metal isn't easy, especially when it's for 60 musicians.

The good doctor shares some candid insights on recording with Phil Spector and The Black Keys.

His song "Into The Night" is one of the most-played of all time. For Benny, it took him to hell and back.

Gloom led to inspiration for Danny's hit song. He got a record deal and an Elvis cover out of it, but success was fleeting.
