The connect is the song “Chaiyya Chaiyya” from DIl Se.

The song lyrics are based on “Tere Ishq Nachaya Thaiyya Thaiyya”, a poem composed by Bulle Shah(pic 1.) in order to pacify his teacher Inayat Shah Qadri. Apparently, Spike Lee(pic 3) saw Dil Se and liked it enough to include Chhaiya Chhaiya in the opening credits of his 2006 film–(the superb) Inside Man.

Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony-Alex’s favorite music in the novel, and the piece he is unable to listen to without incapacitating nausea after his treatment. It was played as the National Anthem for the unified German team at the Melbourne Olympics.
