Genius of Jaidev – 42
—————————–
This is the rarest of the rare song of Rafi, from an unreleased film of the seventies ‘Ek Bulbula Paani Ka’, for which I do not have any details. Even HFGK is silent about it. This is the only song from the film which is available.

Mohammed Rafi – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 4
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

xईx  ‘उ’
“उन्हें मंज़िल नहीं मिलती जो किस्मत के सहारे हैं”

Ah yes, you notice that I skipped the vowel ‘ई’ and jumped straight to the vowel ‘उ’. The reason is that in all the film and non film songs that I could access and check, all songs starting with ‘ई’ have already been posted. With its typical usage profile in the language, there are very few songs that start with words that start with ‘ई’ in Rafi Sb’s list of songs. So I move on to the next vowel in sequence.

Missing Films of 1960s – 2
– – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Good intentions are always the undoing. I am sure you would have also experienced this. मेरे साथ तो ये बहुत होता है. Take the case of this series itself.  The second song is being posted today.  When I initiated this series on 30th September with the song “Nigaahon Se Chhup Kar Kahaan Jaaiyega”, I had all the intentions to post one song at least every other day if not every day.  The available list of songs is all identified.  And see, it is the 11th day now that the second post is coming on.  क्या कहना है good intentions का.

Mukesh and his Composers – 7
————————————

Boarding a ST bus in a depot is quite an exercise and we all may have not-so-fond memories of such pursuits. It’s a herculean task involving strength, luck and technique with which you push through the door entrance to get in. Peak hours pose tougher challenge with dozens trying to enter the rather narrow entrance of the bus at the same time. On some occasions a comic situation arises when two people get struck at the door entrance when the sum total of their waistlines is slightly more than the entrance width. For a moment (which to others behind seems like several minutes) there is some sort of air-lock or more appropriately a waistline-lock.

Today’s song is perhaps the first ever song of S D Batish that I am discussing here. Not that I avoided his songs or his songs were not good enough for me, but may be all his popular songs were already discussed here by others and I just did not get any of his songs for my purpose. It is purely a coincidence. Actually, I have lot of respect for S D Batish, who did a marvellous job of promoting Indian Music in UK and USA. He is one of the rare people who left the film world, but continued serving the Music by turning a corner in his life.

Today (5 august 2015)is the birthday of Kajol.

And I find myself writing a post on this blog for this occasion. :-)

Of all the songs I’ve written about here, this has got to be the most recent. Most of the songs I post are from the 70s or earlier, with just the odd 1980s song.

And this one is of the 1990s.

But I want to post this for three reasons.

Mukesh and his Composers – 5
————————————

Remembering Mukesh (22 July 1923 – 27 August 1976) today (22 july 2015)on his 92nd birth anniversary.

The year 1958 was a turning point in the singing career of Mukesh. Though he had started his career nearly two decades back in 1940 and had some remarkable hits in late 40’s and early 50’s, his foray into acting-singing in the early fifties had some disastrous consequences which in my view affected his whole career in some way or the other. The first three posts in this series clearly show that his songs with those composers stopped sometime after 1949-50. And then there are huge gaps before he was called again by the same composers.

Today (19 july 2015) is the seventh birth anniversary of this blog. It was started on this day in 2008.

As mentioned in earlier posts today, there was no celebration in the blog when it turned one year old. We began to celebrate the anniversaries from subsequent years. The sixth year celebration, viz the celebration last year in july 2015 was on a grand and ambitious scale. It on on that occasion that the blog touched the magical mark of TEN THOUSAND songs.
