Entertaining Sales Pitch Songs – 5
—————————————————–

It should be an interesting exercise – to identify and list out all the sales pitch songs, and then check which actors have performed them on screen. My intuition is that the exercise will indicate that most sales pitch songs, sung by male voices, have been performed on screen by either Johnny Walker or Mehmood.

Shyamlal Babu Rai, who wrote endearing gems in the golden era of melody, such as “Bade Armaanon Se Rakha Hai Balam Teri Kasam”, and also popular hits for the new generation in the 1970s, such as “Aap Jaisa Koi Meri Zindagi Mein Aaye, To Baat Ban Jaaye”, had started his career back in the 1946 with two completely obscure and now unknown films – ‘Double Face’ and ‘Jungle Ki Pukaar’.  Information about these films is not easily traceable, and neither have the songs of these films have surfaced so far.

Remembering Indeewar, song writer par excellence, on the anniversary of his passing away today (27th Feb).

         Bombay Gangout – Part 4
         After The Meet.

After the gangout session, as everyone dispersed and proceeded to their respective destinations, Srinivas (SignalTimer) and I headed to the local train station, that is just like across the road from the gangout meeting place.  We took the train going south; we had a visit scheduled, to meet another common friend who is beset with the same passion of the Hindi film music from the Golden Era.  The name is Kushal Gopalka.  Some of the group members in Bombay may be familiar with this name, as he is active in this space, in a very different and interesting manner.

It is winters in north India.  Delhi continues to be cold.  The day temperatures have started to rise and the sun shines brightly in clear skies these days.  However, the nights still continue to be chilly.  And I so heartily empathize with the sentiments that Atul ji had expressed in one of the posts a couple of days ago – that how inviting is the warmth of a quilt these days, and how the cold weather has effected the productivity and the progress of the blog ticker.  A ha, someone else with the same issues of how this year’s extreme weather has disturbed the working routines.  If one wakes up very early, like I did today, at around 5.10 am, मन ही नहीं किया कंबल छोडने का, and the snooze took away another hour and a half before I felt brave enough to leave the warm refuge of the covers.

         Bombay Gangout – Part 3
         Lunch and After.

The arrangement for the lunch was in an adjacent cave in the dungeon itself.  We took leave of Mastermind, who had thus far been connected online with us, with the promise to reconnect, once the luncheon proceedings were done with.

So, yesterday afternoon we receive this message from Peevesie’s Mom.  There is a Chitalkar song.  A friend of hers is looking for it.  As it was revealed in later part of the thread, this friend had heard this song on the ‘Bhoole Bisre Geet’ program on Radio Ceylon (now called the Sri Lanka Broadcasting Corporation).  When he switched on the radio, the song had already started so he missed the introductory information, like film name and artist etc.  Singer he could recognize from the voice.  It is Chitalkar (C Ramchandra).

Aha,

lailaa ki ungliyaan hain
majnoo ki pasliyaan hain
do do paise mein le lo babu
naram taazi kakdiyaan hain

I remember this jingle from childhood.  Occasionally used to hear it from the roadside hawkers, and once I even heard it in a radio play on Vividh Bharti.  Then many years later, I encountered this song also.  I used to wonder, whether the song came first or this jingle came first – which is based on which.  As I prepare this post, just casually I googled it, and found references to Lucknow and Agra where fresh vegetable vendors are known to use this jingle.  So maybe this is more of a folk tradition, converted into a film song later on.  Just like “Jumkha Gira Re Bareilly Ke Bazaar Mein“.  ;)

The title of the post is a sure giveaway.  You must have guessed it right away, this song is a dentist’s song.  Correct and very right.

Rare Performances – Things Unique and Unexpected #9

So what did you say was so special about 31st Jan?  Well, to start with, the realization that, gosh, one full month has slipped by in what was just a few days ago, the New Year.  The year that was new, is now one month old.   And do you know how old is the blog today? OK, let me calculate.  With the start date of 19th July, 2008, we are looking at – oh, 6 full years + 6 full months + 13 full days.  A quick visit to the calculator tells us that this corresponds to 6.54 years.  So there, our blog is 6.54 years old.

A very adorable sweetness, that is what her voice always conveys.  Be it a song of joy or verses of pensive sadness, it is the amiable pleasantness of the voice that appeals the most.  Just earlier in the day, Bakhshish Singh ji and I were conversing about this anniversary today.  One of his comments sounded very charming.  He said, no matter what is the tone of the song, as you listen to it, you can feel a smile behind the sound.  May it be a cheerless song of sadness, even then the voice sounds as if there is a sweet smile behind it.  That is Suraiya’s voice for you.

Remembering this sweet and sad sound and the singer behind it, on the anniversary of her passing away today (31st January).
