Written by our bass-wielding Boatswain, Mr Robert Douglas Sola (aka Bob Knob). The tune is one of five duets on the album and features our Jewel Thief (Josh Bennett) on the sitar. The vocal parts juxtapose The Mysterious Lady’s angelic soprano with a decidedly earthy counter melody from the Tiger, and the Bengali lyrics are wrapped in a rich layer of poetic imagery. Innocence versus Experience? Purity versus Temptation? Piety versus Corruption? You bet! Timeless themes that find expression in Shakespeare, opera and Bollywood.
