1. Chura le na tumko yeh mausam suhana - Mukesh, Suman Kalyanpur - Sahir - Roshan - Dil hi to hai (1963) -- Raju Bathija
A special day.. a day which adds another page of music in the book of our life.. the leap day! And for this special day, its bound that we do something special.. sitting down 'leaping with joy' while writing a post which is very close to my heart !!
I have mentioned this at a few places before, but can proudly reiterate it when I say that if there are any two voices that I have heard the most after my mother's voice they have to be of LATA MANGESHKAR and ASHA BHOSLE. I cant trace back my memory to the first day when I heard them, coz the time since when I held senses they were there to hold my hand and walk me through my life. They were there around when I was in the cradle, they had their existence embarked on my mother's lips when I was in her lap, they were my playmates when I was growing up, my adolescence was accompanied by the froth and frolic of their divine voices, the sad moments went by leaving me with soothing calmness when theses two voices came floating by. Not one moment of my life has been a non-witness of the magic of these two heavenly voices.
Today, I want to share my moments of extreme happiness and joy when these two musical oceans confluence. Its something inexplicable, beyond words of mere mortal like me to even start expressing about the innumerable twinkles of joy that flutter past me when two of the most perfect voices pitch up together. Hereby are 5 such songs, which make me go gaga over everything in life.. which make me realize the worth of my ears.. which make me feel blessed that I am honored to live in that era where two God-send voices dwell.
I faintly remember the first time I had heard Latadi and Ashatai together, it was this HMV cassette that me and my mother had bought titled 'Mann Bhavan Ke Ghar' featuring 11 of the Lata-Asha duets. (I further went on to hear 86 of the 87 songs Latadi and Ashatai have sung together and however the song, as I certainly believe that there could have been songs made which could have showcased their real talent as compared to what exists, and I have always had tears of immense joy in my eyes).. so reminiscing those days with my cassette and exploring the most loved topic for me in HFM once again.
1. जब जब तुम्हे भुलाया तुम और याद आये.. (जहाँ आरा - १९६४), राजेंद्र कृष्ण, मदन मोहन
2. क्या हुआ ये मुझे क्या हुआ.. (जिस देश में गंगा बहती हैं - १९६०), हसरत जयपुरी, शंकर-जयकिशन
3. मेहा आओ रे घिर घिर के छाओ रे.. (संगीत सम्राट तानसेन - १९६२), शैलेन्द्र, एस.एन.त्रिपाठी
4. मन क्यों बहका री बहका आधी रात को.. (उत्सव - १९८६), वसंत देव, लक्ष्मीकांत-प्यारेलाल
5. ओ चाँद जहाँ वो जाए.. (शारदा - १९५७), राजेंद्र कृष्ण, सी.रामचंद्र
I can go on and on on this topic forever, but as of now leaving you with the two voices who have become a part of our mere being.. an inseparable, nondetachable part affixed to the deepest crevices of our heart.. all that can be done is relished and lost in this mesmerizing storm of excellence in art and brilliance in expression.. Latadi and Ashatai.. hats off !! Thank you for making our lives, worth living !!

Khantha Mahadevan You deserve an Oscar for this post from SKS, Arun ji!
Falguni Trivedi Shah Zareewala neela asmaan !!! what an imagination !! which only someone like Gulzar only can think of..
Arun Mudgal Two other songs which musically i consider as the finest expression of joy and which i always keep on listening to are 'naache man mora magan tig da dheegee dheegee.....' , and ' hariyala saawan dhol bajata aaya......' but the sheer energy and intensity of exultation of Jai ho .... is also a factor which makes me returning to this song off and on, and ofcourse the imagery by Gulzar is always a pleasure to listen to !!
Veena Pathak Like Preet said, it is so nice to have an extra day filled with fun music! :)
Maithil Lakhia Arun ji, dil khush ho gaya...

LEAPING IN MULTIPLE GUISES
Leaping with joy definitely conjures up a childhood memory. The only movie where I actually leaped up and down in joy many times in my seat, where my excitement had to be really restrained, was my first viewing of 'Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi". The escapades of the 3 brothers and the champion car were enough to throw me into a tizzy of excitement. The movie still brings immense joy to my heart. And this song composed by Burmanda, still is as fresh in my heart as it was then. Here's "Paanch rupaiya baarah aana". The mandolin, flutes and percussion are top class.
Here the not only does Kishore leaps in a myriad of ways, even the melody jumps from song to song as Kishore brings up a range of characters to make his point. Madhubala is stunning as always.
I still remember the ultrathin movie tickets, which one obtained after standing in line for a long time, that said "Balcony". It still is such an evocative memory. The huge fans, the news reel, the samosas at intermission, the trailers of upcoming films- My heart still leaps in joy thinking of all this.
Veena Pathak Chahe namoona dekh lo....... and then he goes into all those wonderfully crazy histrionics. Great pick.
Sunil Khushalani Aditya and/ or all other gunijano,
Maithil Lakhia One of them was Dhire se jaana by SDB....
Maithil Lakhia Here is Teri Gathari mein in the voice of K C Dey...love this version..
Maithil Lakhia Sorry, Veena, posted at the same time as you.
Veena Pathak You posted the link as well, which is great Maithil.
Maithil Lakhia There are posts and then there is Sunil.....
Khawaja Irfan Anwar I have read somewhere that Kishore owed 'Panch Rupaiya Baara Aana' to the canteen operator of his college. afterwards, once he tried to return that amount( when he became popular) to the manager, he refused and said that you will always owe me this amount.
Maithil Lakhia Sunil, very subtle way to show how to extend and add value to a post without compromising the theme.......
Khantha Mahadevan Chalti ka naam gaadi aur post likhne ka naam hai Sunil Khushalani! A million likes..
Mahender N. Hemrajani ... and this post (quite aptly) on the leap year day :-) Please keep up the great posts.
Kamal Kant all songs of this movie are great in all departments and are my personal favourites Sunil bhai,thanx a lot
This One Also Not Posted By Anyone. ''Khuli Hawa Mein Dole Re''-Lata Mangeshkar-Champakali-57. MD - Hemant Kumar & Lyrics By Rajendra Krishan.
Cine Manthan has *done*
Sandeep Rai Film IMO Is B & W. Another Version Is Here. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L5mKGwRbrkQ.
"Aisi rim jhim me O Sanam,
Why this song makes me 'jump with joy'..is because it reminds me of that feeling of longing in the heart for 'that someone', heightened by the relentlessly pouring rain, itself a sign of nature's own longing for a new life!
A timeless classic by Shailendra-Lata Mangeshkar-Saill Chaudhary-Sadhana!
Nilanjan Lahiri Perhaps the best song to start your day.... Thanks RashminJi....
Khantha Mahadevan Such an elegant interpretation for this all-time classic..
Rashmin Tamhne Thank you, Nilanjan -ji! I agree..it's a song that evokes a 'good feeling'!
Thank you for your kind comment, Khantha -ji!
It all depends on the 'Theme-makers', Maithil ! :)))
Maithil Lakhia In that case, how about giving some "creative" suggestions boss?
Rashmin Tamhne I will, Maithil, in the coming days..! :)
Joshi Shreepad Beautiful song ,I luv this song especially wen rain is falling & besides d window I m drinking "tea or coffee "or itne mein ye gana agar kahise koi sunaye to ahhhhhhhhhaaa! ..""""Jhoomta Mausam Mast Mahina!..
Ritesh Gadhvi Isn't this beautiful song inspired from the movement of wipers by Salilda, had read somewhere, cant locate it now
Ritesh Gadhvi Ok here it is, reproducing it
Raga Khamaj is a late evening raga and is brought out rather elegantly in the light classical form of thumri. It has been a popular choice for film music as well. The romantic nature of the raga is brought out by this delightful composition of Salil Chowdhury O Sajna Barkha Bahar Aayi. This song is supposed to have been set to the swishing of the wipers of an Ambassador car when the composer was caught in a torrential downpour. The original version done in Bengali called Na Jeona was also sung by Lata Mangeshkar. She is said to have chosen this song when asked what is the ONE song she will take with her to a desert island. I suppose that question was asked before the age of the iPod.

The Charm of Raga Khamaj | Shalu Wasu is Tickled By Life
Shyam Uttarwar Here is what Dr. Mandar Bichhu, an esteemed member of this forum, writes about this song in one of his articles...
O Sajana Barakha Bahar Aayi from Parakh (1960) is the song that defines Lata in my mind. Out of her myriad memorable songs, somehow this song for me represents true essence of Lata’s matchless virtuosity. Free-flowing like an unbridled river and fragrantly fresh like a blooming flower – her voice is one to die for in this song. Purity and perfection, innocence and intensity, dignity and divine sweetness, expressiveness and erudition – all precious qualities of her singing shine through this exquisite rendition.
With a sitar, a tabla, a jaltarang, a flute and a few violins, Salil da provided just the basic minimum orchestral backdrop and let Lata’s vocal artistry do the rest. Simple as it seems, this Khamaj raga-based semi-classical tune has a plenty of musical intricacies that only Lata could do justice to. Listening to Lata’s delicate runs and bridges in the lines - Aisi Rimjhim Mein O Sajan Pyaase Pyaase Mere Nayan/ Tere Hi Khwab Mein Kho Gaye simply takes one’s breath away and further when she sings Saanwari Saloni Ghata Jab Jab Chhaayi/ Ankhiyon Mein Raina Gayi Nindiya Na Aayi, the way she says the word ‘Ghata’ is pure magic!
Every time I listen to this song, it lights up my mind with its ethereal beauty and suddenly world seems a much better place to live in. Years after years, that bewitching Lata-magic keeps doing this trick. That’s why Lata forever remains young in my mind! Forever!
Ritesh Gadhvi Thanks to Mandarji and Shyambhai for putting it up.
Rashmin Tamhne That is a wonderful description by Dr Mandar Bichu-ji! Thank you for bringing it to our attention, Shyam!
Akilesh Srivastav Excellent post Sir.
Akilesh Srivastav Thanks for the post Sir...
Arun Mudgal Aha ! what a treat, each musical phrase of this song comes as a cool .sweet and transparent rain drop to the music thirsty ears of the listener, and Lata Bai's voice moving in harmony with the orchestra doing wonders. I do not know of any other song in HFM where Sancahari has been put to a better use than here, only Sir Salil can do it, thanks a lot Rashmin Tamhne - Rashmin Bhai, for this meethi fuhaar of suron ki bahaar, there can be no better way to start the day !!
Naresh Khattar All that has to be told for this song has been told but even that is less ..
Rashmin Tamhne Thank you friends...for the pouring in of appreciation for this immortal song!
Mandar Bichu Thanks Rashminji for the post and Shyamji for posting my comments. Indeed a forever young song!
Rashmin Tamhne And analytical write-ups on the song - like yours! - would ensure its immortality even further, Mandar-ji! :)
FILM : GUIDE is a 1965 Hindi film starring Dev Anand and Waheeda Rehman. It was directed by Vijay Anand, who also contributed to the screenplay.
Lavanya Shah Interesting facts
The climax of this iconic film was shot in Limdi town, 90 km from Ahmedabad. Apparently, Chetan Anand taught English in Limdi during 1941. [ and हम लोग घर पर अक्सर कहते थे ' लीमडी गामे गाडी मली ' इस वाक्य को दोनों ओर से पड़ने पर यह एक सा रहता है :)
Aparajita Sarkar amazing post Lavanya ji...and the anecdote u shared is lovely !!
Mona Vijaykar Enchanting!
Khantha Mahadevan The one song that transforms everyone instantly, especially the fairer sex, to that sweet once-in-a-lifetime age of sixteen when the mind in crafree abandon soars high with the heart..exquisite selection and a very special anecdote! Thank you, Lavanya ji.
Khantha Mahadevan *carefree
Surinder Kumar i see in English same as hindi
Arun Mudgal Joy free from all boundations !!
Falguni Trivedi Shah Lavanya ji, you reminded me of my childhood days with that sentence "लीमडी गामे गाडी मली", we used to play such games in which we have to reverse the sentence and speak. As you rightly mentioned, this was the most famous one !!!
Cine Manthan The search for a foreigner for Guide - http://www.punemirror.in/printarticle.aspx?page=comments&action=translate§id=4&contentid=2011120620111206003414189ad50c0ad&subsite
Maithil Lakhia Great anecdote Cine. Thanks for shaing. Never heard this story before.
Khawaja Irfan Anwar This is 'THE' song. Bohat khoob Lavanya ji.
Shreeda Doctor My most fav..
Naresh Khattar When I thought of this theme this is the first song that came to mind. Nothing represents the free spirit , gay abandon and joie de vivre more than this.
"Dadamoni expressed his joie de vivre so well in "Shaukeen", Khushi chalak kar chehre par aati hain unke."
"Jeevan se ye ras ka bandhan todaa nahi jaaye..."
Jab Vi Koi Kangana Bole Part III-Kishore-Shaukeen(1982)
Khantha Mahadevan Such a splendid recall and so endearing is the comment of Dadamoni!
'Leap'ing with joy- songs that represent cheerful enjoyment, exultation of spirit , joie de vivre. : When heart is happy, and filled with love, and anticipation, it sings, even while driving. This happy song captures this spirit. Fabulous composition of Pancham, fantastic singing by Kishore. The yodelling by Kishore is this lovely song is out of this world. Love this song.
चला जाता हूँ, किसी की धुन में
If we try, our throat chokes up at yodelling part, and its not simply yodelling like ha ha he he, but lyrically he does yodelling, And also the gap is very less between yodelling and normal part, to switch over that fast is just too difficult, which imo only Kishore can pull off.
There are so many songs of Kishore to marvel at his talent. Giving one of eg, though not of Pancham, "Meri Lottery Lag Jane wali hai", the various sounds and voices he makes is awesome....and ofc these all were recorded live, whole song in one take, unlike today's copy paste method....But what if the technology has improved, we still don't have anyone like KISHORE KUMAR.
Sudesh Nirwan ONE OF MY ALL TIME FAVOURITES. SAHI MASTI BHARA GAANA.
Hema S Myusic Absolutelyfantastic! the melody , the tempo and kishore's rendition is out of the world!
Khantha Mahadevan Such a dear favorite!
Sangeeta Gupta Love this song. Evergreen. Even my 18 year old daughter loves it.
Priya Pakanati when the music starts itself ...my heart leaps with joy....
Lavanya Shah Priya Pakanatiji ...what is this Film based upon ? R these Apsars or wter Nymphs ? please explain ...
Priya Pakanati those were the days when screenplay was so perfect , the director of this film K V REDDY....wrote in the screenplay that this song will be picturised in nov-december ....soarrangements have to be made to fill the pool with hot water....only VIJAYA PRODUCTIONS could do this....
Lavanya Shah but what is the story of this film Priyaji ?
Priya Pakanati Jagadeka Veeruni Katha is a 1961 Telugu Drama film directedby Kadiri Venkata Reddy under the banner of Vijaya Pictures.
It is a Musical film with music score composed by Pendyala Nageswara Rao and songs penned by Pingali Nagendra Rao..........
Priya Pakanati Udayagiri king (Mukkamala) has two sons. The elder son is Pratap (N T Ramarao) and younger son Jagajjit. Pratap dreams of marrying Devakanyas and happily enjoying the life. Knowing this, the angered father expels him from the country. He continues his journey in search of Devakanyas and reaches a pond wherein they bath regularly. He secretly observes them. He was cursed by Jayanthi (Saroja Devi) to become a statue. He regains his body by the pious activity of his mother Maharani (Rushyendramani). Meanwhile Indraputri was also cursed by a Muni to stay in Manavaloka and marry a person who steals her dress. Knowing about the curse, Pratap steals her dress and runs away without looking backwards. He reaches home to know that his father is suffering from cancer. He leaves the country to procure Medicine and meanwhile marry Naga Kanya and Varuna Kanya. They reach Kamakuta Rajya and live happily. Cheating their Mother-in-law Jayanthi procures her saree back and all the devakanyas leaves to heaven. However they could not forget him. Pratap goes in search of Devakanyas reaches heaven and Indrasabha. Indra and other devas tests his efficiency and love towards their daughters. He succeeds and gets the Devakanyas to Earth and rules the kingdom happily..............
Priya Pakanati lavanyaji....this song is sung when the devakanyas come down to earth and bathe in the pond secretly....you guessed right!!!
Priya Pakanati lavanyaji.....i am 'priya' to you ...plz....:)
Lavanya Shah thank u for the story now i can enjoy this song again some more
Akilesh Srivastav Nice post Mam..
Arun Mudgal My God !, what a mindblowing and breathtaking melody this is, superb lilting prelude and then the singer's voicees just flowing with the orchestra making it a great melody, Priya Pakanati Ji what is the fault of the hero evevn i would not mind getting cursed and becoming a statue to listen and watch this sweet, liliting and sureelee melody !!
Naresh Khattar Lovely Devkanyas .....oh yes , song too ;-))
Priya Pakanati naresh I...hope you recognised one of the devakanya as B SAROJA DEVI the teri pyari pyari soorat ko kisiki nazar na lage chashme baddoor......lol
Naresh Khattar Oh yes I do ....but don't you think that when God made all these southern belles he drew their face with a drafting compass.
Akilesh Srivastav God has created all human beings equally.
Priya Pakanati naresh...lol
Priya Pakanati akhilesh yes I agree..all of us have the same body parts....but that does not mean that all look alike....no harm in appreciating beauty...at the same time i am not put off by average faces....its the person inside who is beautiful or ugly and can pot us off....dont you agree?...
Priya Pakanati arunji....its such a joy to share all these melodious songs with you ...thank you for ur response
Akilesh Srivastav Yeah, I agree with you Mam.
Nutsure Satwik He leapt in leap year to become a statue. He died in leap year and there are many statues of NTR. It's a bit far fetched to think that they are because of B Saroja Devi....
Nutsure Satwik It's a lovely song no doubt about it...
Shefali Gandhi so beautiful...aaah! first time for me, thank you Priya!!
Shefali Gandhi i'll share this on my wall with Nareshji's remarks!! WoW!! :))
Arie Lautenbach Pierlot it is too beautifull not to share, thank you Priya
Khantha Mahadevan Now, we get a glimpse of why earthlings need an extra day every 4 years while the apsaras manage to induge every day..simp,y wonderful, Priya! The comments are the VATs, unfortunately, levied on earth.
Ritesh Gadhvi Heard 5 times in repeat mode...such a sweet melody, finding traces of many hindi songs, though nothing direct....
" चारों पासे सुख होण , किसी नू ना दुःख होण, आवीं बाबा नानका , एहो जियान खुशियाँ वे लायीं बाबा नानका " - Sarbat da bhala - Praying to Baba Nanak for welfare of everyone around , this one song brings me more happiness and more joy than any other:
Arun Mudgal क्या बात है, इस गीत से आती मिट्टी कि सौंधी सौंधी महक ने और सबके सुख के लिए कामना की संगीतमय अभिव्यक्ति ने मन और आत्मा को मोह लिया नरेश भाई !
Akilesh Srivastav Nice post Naresh Sir...Hats off to you....Thanks very very much Sir...Great to see this song...Thanks again Sir...
Naresh Khattar I was wavering between this song and a Guide song ( which one?) - and then settled for this for its message of goodwill that I find so heartwarming. If you could follow that language you'd know how blissful is the poetry.
Harmahendra Hura tere bhane sarvat ka bhala
Khantha Mahadevan I am marveling at these divine interpretations that you, Pavan Jha and others are dwaring for this theme...lovely and soulful, Naresh.
Surinder Kumar thanjks
Johnj Pujji Lyrics are beautiful, beautifully sung, Very touchy song, brought tears to my eyes. If everyone could think like this in the world then

Raju Bathija The sad version of this lovely song, sung by Suman Kalyanpur. Also not included in the movie,I think. What a sweet melody.
यूँही दिल ने चाहा था रोना रुलाना
Yun Hi Dil Ne Chaha Tha - Suman Kalyanpur Dil Hi To Hai
Pehla Nasha is the song that first came to my mind when I saw today's theme !! One can literally see Aamir in leaps and bounds of joy at his first crush ! First love is always special and magical and this dreamy state is portrayed beautifully in this song.
Maithil Lakhia Must mention unique singing voice of Udit Narayan..emotes the feeling in written words perfectly...
Rajee Suresh Maithil, its a total package. Everything falls perfectly in its place in this song ! Its one of my all time fav song.
Falguni Trivedi Shah I love this song !!! I became and Aamir Khan fan after QSQT and this movie..though he did give few commercial hits between these 2 movies, I loved his performance in this movie more...
Veena Pathak That leap in the beginning (at 0:50) was so famous back then.
Khawaja Irfan Anwar Bohat badi leappppppp......
Mujahid Shaikh Love this song for the freshness - Its a tribute to Majrooh Sahab that he could write such a song in his later years too - Great pick Rajee!
Priya Pakanati farah khan's 1st claim to fame...how this song was noticed for its choreography.....lovely choice rajee...
Khantha Mahadevan Simply superb!

The song comes in my mind leaping with joy and celebration is from Rajshree Productions small budget , family drama and musical hit of its time 'Khushiyaan hi Khushiyaan ho Daaman mein jiske ...........( Dulhan Wahi Jo Piya Man Bhaaye ) beautifully composed and penned by Ravindra Jain as Orchestra is simply out of this world sung by in sweet voice of Yesudaas , Hemlata and Banshree Sengupta .This song has till date nostalgia feeling as songs were alresdy hit on Vividh Bharti and wanted to see the movie at any cost .
Rajesh Kumar Singh No Problem , can post other song
Priya Pakanati more than song i enjoyed ur prank rajesh....i really like such enterprising kids....:D
Shyam Uttarwar Rememebr seeing this movie in the first week... the song stuck with me even before it became hit on radio..
Khantha Mahadevan Beautiful pick with those precious memories is such a delight to read and sing..
Rajesh Kumar Singh Priya ji , sometime movie or song becomes more fav and close to heart as in teens had adopted all sort of Dramas , excuse to watch them at any cost and that made me thrilled
Shefali Gandhi songs and movie too..beautiful..
Priya Pakanati rajesh... I too saw a film without telling at home , got caught and also got a slap from my father...I cried buckets ... and searched for rat's poison to die.....dint find [ as the previous day my mother had kept it elsewhere]....and here I am very much alive to tell this to you....
Rajesh Kumar Singh Priya ji you will burst in laugh , did all sort of tantrums and cooked all sort of possible excuse to watch the movies so much was the passion ( few movies saw three shows regularly -Morning Show Mr X , 12 noon to 3 pm -Ghazal and dared to see 3pm to 6 -Anurodh .
Archana Gupta Was on of the atleast 12 that I wanted to post, glad it made the list :-)
Bakul P. Dhruva Excellent post Rajesh ji.
Rajesh Kumar Singh Archana Guptaji Than x !
Ritesh Gadhvi Beautiful song, lovely anecdote Rajeshji...:))
Arun Mudgal तो इसमें नई बात क्या है मित्रों Rajesh भाई तो अभी भी ऑफिस से बंक मार के सिनेमा हाल में घुसने कि फ़िराक में ही रहते हैं :) :)
Joshi Shreepad राजेश भाई साब आपके इस गाने से "संगीत के दीवानों की इस महफ़िल" में,बहुत लोगोंका भांडा-फोड हो जायेगा .;D)).. हा हा..वैसें ,मोर्निग शो मुझे भी अच्छा लगता था !:))
Rajesh Kumar Singh Arun Mudgalji , recently mentioned that from last twenty years hardly 25-30 movies I have seen . With times taste of cinema , music changed so the priorities and responsibility on ones shoulder diminishes your hobbies / passion .
Naresh Khattar जिंदगी के झमेले तो कभी खत्म नहीं होंगे | अगर कोई सोचे के रिटायर होकर ये सब गाने सुनूंगा और फिल्मे देखूँगा , तो उस उम्र में ना जाने कान चलने हैं या आँखें | इस लिये जो करना है अभी समय निकालो और कर लो | जहाँ तक फिल्मों का सवाल है , पिछले दशक में ५०-८० के दशक से बहुत बेहतर फिल्में आ रही हैं - जहाँ कहानी में कुछ नयापन होता है |
Aparajita Sarkar wah ! u picked the ultimate :)
Falguni Trivedi Shah I like the simple theory of making life easy conveyed through this song, though very difficult to implement practically!!!
Khantha Mahadevan Terrific pick!
Maithil Lakhia Great choice Falguni...best Hindi film I have seen in years...
Khawaja Irfan Anwar What a current pick!
Falguni Trivedi Shah Maithil bhai, one cant go wrong with an Aamir Khan movie. May it be a comedy movie like Andaz Apna Apna, Hum hain Rahi Pyaar ke or movies like Sarfarosh, Lagaan, Rang de Basanti or Taare Zameen par...I have been rarely disappointed...
Sunil Khushalani Beautiful.
Naresh Khattar Shiraz, wish it was possible to express how much did I love this )
Shiraz Ali Khan Naresh ji, I just try to play 1% of what he played to keep him alive within me but yet it isn't enough. Thank you so much for hearing it. :)
U.V. Ravindra Excellent! Here's another version that I personally have enjoyed immensely for many years: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=20u9NDZcwfw
U.V. Ravindra I should add that my comment above should please not be taken as any comparison of the two performances. My best wishes to you, Shiraz saahib -- may you excel in your art.
Naresh Khattar Even that 1% amrit ( to go by your word) flowing from that holy source in Maihar will act as ambrosia and will give immortality to your music .
Shiraz Ali Khan U.V. Ravindra ji and Naresh ji - Thank you so much.
Lajo Gupta Beautiful! Bless you Shiraz.
Lajo Gupta Did you know, Shiraz Ali Khan... that the Maand flowed from Madhya Pradesh to Rajasthan? Such is history ... and such is the power of sound in caring hands that today it does a parikrama of the world! Bless you again!
Naresh Khattar Lajo Ji, do I read that Maand went from Maihar to Jodhpur with your Baba ? Thanks for this precious nugget of information.
Khantha Mahadevan Absolute bliss invoking post!
Arun Mudgal Shiraz Ali Khan -Shiraj Bhai, Is maand ki khushbu hee kuchh alag hai, is Kevade ki khushbu ko yun hee failate rahiye, Khuda se duaa hai ki is kevade ki sugandh aapki kala mein hamesh rahe aur isi tarah supremiyon ke man aur hriday ko mahkati rahe !!
Lajo Gupta Dear Naresh ji... Baba had nothing to do with Mand until he landed in Jodhpur. Earlier Tansen had created Miyan Ki Mand. I have a fuzz of facts locked in this head. Let me dig through my documents and get back to you.
Shiraz Ali Khan Arun Mudgal ji, Thank you so much. Lajo Gupta, I feel blessed to be a part of this family. A lot of responsibility and i give you a word, that id not look behind anymore. Thank u for your support. I am lucky to have you by my side.
Lajo Gupta My beta ... Shiraz ... having you in my life is like having Mezda back! Stay true to tradition and Gurukul. Their blessing is the key to our becoming. There will be many hurdles and many deterrents but Shraddha and Sadhana will help you overcome. I love your mind and your attitude. ... and your music. Bless you!
on seeing today's theme..i "too jumped with joy !! " needless to say that this is the first song that came to my mind...this film "khamoshi- the musical " had some fabulous music..it was touted as a musical..!! of all the songs...this one holds a special place(.rest all other songs are stored in different compartments of my heart :) ) ...just listening to this one makes one forget all worries and be just happy.... !! everyting about this movie impressed and intrigued me....some wonderful story tellinh..some fabulous performances and ofcourse the romance !! last but not the elast...salman khan !! lol !!
Aparajita Sarkar typo * telling
Mona Vijaykar ohnoooo! Aparajita what telepathy! That was the first song that came to my mind and by the time I gathered all info you beat me to it! haha! I could delete my post .....
Mona Vijaykar btw...Like the way you introduced your song :)
Aparajita Sarkar thanx a lot Mona ..yeah it did overlap i guess...:) like minds think alike :)
Bina Shah Beautiful pick to match the theme
Khantha Mahadevan Super-tall pick and lovely introduction!
Anindya Roychowdhury Not to forget the classy picturisation..,aptly conveying the free spirit of the lead character...SLB-Manisha-Kavita seem to pick up the (unfinished?) thread from where they left off with "Pyar hua, chupke se". J-L's arrangements for this one, particularly, seem almost like a tribute.
Maithil Lakhia Great intro and choice...
Rajesh Kumar Singh Super pick , was first song in my mind but posted Khushiyaan hi Khushiyaan ......... as had nostalgia feeling of school days :)
Shreeda Doctor Nice one...
Priya Pakanati stored in different compartments of my heart.......this is a cute thought....lol
Shamshad Begum legendary hindi urdu punjabi film playback singer bollywood india indian...
Khantha Mahadevan Such a delightful song, Gajendra! Needless to say heard it for the first time and yes, the innocent exuberance of Begum ji's voice along with the lyrics would have made that film star leap joyously..wonder who it was..
Manoj Tripathi Pure and unadulterated voice
Veena Pathak I would have loved to see the video. Esp. the part- main banoongi filmistar filmistar hahhaha... so delightful.
Mona Vijaykar haha the lyrics are so cute...and as you rightly point out "she almost effortlessly conveys the exultation of spirit " :)
Harmahendra Hura Perhaps heard first time and liked very much.
Gajendra Khanna thanks khantha, manoj, veena ji, mona ji and harmahendra :)
Gajendra Khanna I also wonder who it would have been picturised on!
Durlabh Kolhe Nice pick Gajendra. Hear it after a long gap. Radio Cylone use to broadcast it during 60's.
Aparna Srivastava heard for the first time but really refreshing....
Kamal Kant all songs of this movie are good
listening and watching this song gives me the joy that no other s0ong can give....
gives me goose bumps...everytime I hear it....
PIYA TOSE NAINA LAAGE RE..........
Anu Garg hope this fits in today's theme...for me this is one magical song...that gives me immense joy...joe de vivre....
Cine Manthan Can't say about French but in Hindi song qualifies in all possible themes :)
Anu Garg :) ok...thanx
Cine Manthan But nothing official about above mentioned.
Cine Manthan अनु जी, क्या इसका कोई अच्छा वीडियो लिंक भी है?
Anu Garg this one is better....http://youtu.be/S_gzVisz0XI
Guide - Piya Tose Naina Laage Re
Ritesh Gadhvi Supreme in every way
Aparajita Sarkar beautiful post Anu !!
Arun Mudgal गायकी, संगीत , फिल्मांकन सभी कुछ इतना बेहतरीन एक साथ मिले ऐसा कभी कभी ही होता है !!
Shreeda Doctor Best movie...
Anu Garg Piya tose naina laage re' stands out for the intrinsic beauty of its 'roopak taal' based tune. This 4 stanza/8 minute piece is a marathon song that traces the rise of Rosy (the film's female protagonist played by Waheeda) from a small time artist to the sensational dancing star Nalini....
as told by by Ritu Chandra...
Anu Garg Special mention must be made of Rahul Dev Burman who along with Basu and Manohari assisted Dada in this film. The orchestra in more ways than one was Pancham's triumph as well.
Anu Garg - Waheeda Rehman worked very hard on the dances of this film. She would get up at 4:00 in the morning to rehearse. She also drank lots of milk to get the strength to execute those rigorous steps!. After all this hard work when the songs were canned and the film went on the editing table, Waheeda had just one fear... that the long dance sequences could be edited out. Finally she made a request to Dev Anand.Cut my scenes if you like but please don't edit out my dances. Dev Anand promised her he wouldn't and the dances stayed. And thus what we have today a set of dances that have become textbook material for dances in popular cinema...
Khantha Mahadevan Absolutely brilliant pick and another of those incomparable gems that are made to be enjoyed all the time, and on this special day. Thank you, Anu ji, for the other vignettes you have added..
Anu Garg thanx Khantha Mahadevan JI :) please don't embarrass me by adding that ji as a suffix .... the other vignettes are a compilation from Ritu Chandra's comments shared on you tube...I just shared them on SKS...:)
Khantha Mahadevan I cannot read comments about this song without recalling Ritu's precious vignettes. I am so glad you added them here..no ji's please for me too!
Sangeeta Gupta One of the finest songs ever in the history of Indian Film Music.
S P Balasubramaniam & Kishore Kumar - Two voices that come to my mind when the word joy comes to my mind. Full throated, uninhibited, bindaas. When they are joined by Asha in this Pancham number, we can only get up and dance
Vinayakam Murugan The extended video is courtesy Raju Bathija . Thank you !!!
Gargi Surroy love this song....
Parag Patil SPB brought to the HFM a new way of singing. His south Indianish singing was liked by one and all. Now no one bothers whether the singer is from which place.
Vinayakam Murugan An error in my description There is no Asha in this song. Always thought that there was a stanza sung by Asha in this . My apologies!!!
Raju Bathija There was a longish interlude in which Dimple danced and everyone clapped. There is no Asha in this song. It is men's special song :).
Ritesh Gadhvi Reproducing gist of what Javed Akhtar said on "Classic Legends" on Zee Classic about Kishore Kumar.
He himself is a big fan of Kishore Kumar, He said he had some different kind of voice all together, Even in duets or triads, your attention would go the most to Kishore Kumar.
About this song.
Kishoreda was recovering from heart attack in those times, He had also cut down his assignments in those days, from normal 5 to 6 recordings a day he had come down to 2 or 3 max per day. SPB recorded his portion of this song first and did a splendid job, such was his rendition that got me worried whether Kishoreda would be able to match up to SPB or not(since his health was down), but finally Kishoreda recorded and rendered with full gutso and energy that no one would believe that he was not keeping well and did a magnificent job.
Ritesh Gadhvi writing from memory, so sorry if any lapse
Vinayakam Murugan Guruji ki jai!!!
Raju Bathija Thanks, Ritesh for sharing. Legends are made of stuff like this. Jai ho Kishorekumaram.
Ritesh Gadhvi And some marvelous bass guitar, glass spoon hits and foot tapping just before start of the song, when both indulge in that table duel, which sadly is missing in the audio release.
'The Dawn' - God's Upbeat song, to kickoff a New Day on earth in style! A day leaps in time. The new day opens a new account with bright rays of hope.. The dawn symbolizes 'joie de vivre' in its true spirit unlike night which is dark and intense in color..
Salil da made a timeless song of the 'The Dawn' in Jaagte Raho.. A song that walks along with me during Morning Walks and lifts the mood with its magical ambiance, musical progression & message! and what brilliant use in climax, which takes a film to another high!
जग उजियारा छाये,
Pavan Jha ’मन मोहना’ बड़े झूठे!
Cine Manthan और बटुकेश्वर दत्त, प्रेम धवन, मनोज कुमार कृत शहीद के प्रसिद्द गीत की वह पंक्ति ...
Khantha Mahadevan The breaking of the dawn could not be captured more brilliantly in a film song and your description adds its own glow, Pavan.
Naresh Khattar What a special choice Pavan. Only you could have thought of this song under this theme. Kudos!
