Mujhe maaf karo

I pity anyone in central London today who doesn't like 'Hung Up', I've heard it coming from shops and passing cars and that's without even leaving home!

I too joined the queue of people in the local CD store buying 'Confessions on a dance floor'. The highlight of the album for me is Madonna speaking in Hindi in 'Sorry'.

She does quite well. The first two words, 'mujhe maaf' ( to me forgivness), are excellent and then 'karo' (do) comes out a little weird. It's understandable. The slightly rolled 'r' sound is difficult and it's hard to follow it with an 'o' (as in 'go') without making it sound like 'oo' (as in goo).

Overall a good effort.
