Great song. I remember buying the album and thinking it was cool that the band covered The Beatles' "Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown)" in the Punjabi language, as a nod to the sitar played on the original track.

As for the latter song, best lyric ever: "I once had a girl, or should I say, she once had me."
