Sometimes the temptation to write an article about an artist is to start with a sampler of the fabulous, memorable songs by him/her, to represent the variety, the flavor and the endearing memories that artist has created as a legacy and a treasure presented for generations to enjoy. But when one is writing about an artist of the stature of Rafi, or Lata, or Naushad, giving even an extended sampler for such artists is like lighting a lamp in bright sunlight (literally ‘suraj ko diya dikhana’). There are a few artists of such eminence that need no introductions through a sampler list of their songs. A name that definitely belongs to this category is Majrooh Sb.

Remembering Majrooh Sultanpuri on the anniversary of his passing away today (24th May).

Remembering RD Burman on his 74th birth anniversary today.

RD Burman, the prince of the music composers in the 1970s and 80s, his music is considered to be the most significant factor behind the exceptional success of Asha Bhosle and Kishore Kumar in those decades. Starting his career with ‘Chhote Nawaab’ (1961), he has no other film to his credit as a music director till 1965, when he scored the music for ‘Bhoot Bangla’ and ‘Teesra Kaun’. But the phenomenal launch to his career would be in 1966, when he scored the songs for Nasir Hussain’s ‘Teesri Manzil’ – there was no looking back after that. If we take 1965 as the true starting point in his career, then from that year to 1994, when he passed away, he had scored music for more than 330 films. In an active career of three decades, that makes for an average of more than 10 films in a year, which is an extraordinary pace for a single person.
