But did Kalyanji—Anandji, the duo that composed “Aye Naujawan”, get their signature hook (the part of “Don’t Phunk” that goes Don’t you worry about a thing, baby) from The Kinks’ “Victoria” (1969)?
Skip to 1:42—Land of hope and gloria (terrible lyric, and an odd refrain for such a driving song).
Do you hear it?
Just a stray thought. I’d never heard “Victoria” before.
