(1975 – Solo)

Wow, vintage Rafi, if ever it were.

As I was browsing for the song from 1975, I bumped into this very old friend, whom I had not met for a long time. But oh, what a lovely remembrance this one. A wonderful gem of a song, that is lost in obscurity, even though the film is comparatively not very old.

(1974 – Solo)

This is turning out to be a very endearing and a very wonderful revisit to the songs that used to be ‘by heart’ in the school days and radio listening days. I have somewhere the notebooks stashed away, in which I and my sister used to pencil in these songs. Even Atul ji has acknowledged it. In a personal response in email, he mentioned that these are the songs that he had written in his notebook, next to cricket scores of important test matches. :) These songs from the 1970s, generally introduced to our nascent minds and memories over the radio, are some of the dearest treasures ensconced in our hearts. In most cases, the familiarity was just with the song, without any details of films and other credits. That information would come later. First, it was simply the song that made its way inside and has simply been there since.

Rafi Sb – In The Seventies – 5

(1973 – Solo)

Seventies was the decade of change, from the very subtle to sweeping transformations. The stars of the sky since 1950s, started to age and lose their glow and popularity. A new crop of youngsters was taking their place. Fortunes were changing, and so was the face of Hindi film music. Through the 50s and 60s, if Johnny Walker was in a film, then it was almost certain he would have a song. ‘Anand’ (1971) changed that. Issabhai Suratwala, the middle aged theatre company owner, went through this poignant tale with a role that had no opportunities for a song. Then, the number of Shammi Kapoor starrers as a hero began to fade. By the time ‘Manoranjan’ (1974) was released, Shammi was now a ‘fat’ character actor. Although still retaining the twinkle, the smile and the crack of humor, the appearance of a bulky posture and a accentuating beard was really a far cry from ‘Yahoo’. And the most significant departure came when in 1971, ‘Jaane Anajaane’ was released. The solo “Jaane Anjaane Log Miley, Par Koi Milaa Na Apna” performed by Shammi on screen carried the playback voice of Kishore Kumar. I remember now, in the ‘Filmfare’ magazine, a photo was published of the recording, showing Kishore Kumar and Shammi Kapoor, with the caption – ‘Shammi with his new ghost voice’. At that time, I did not understand the meaning of these words, as I do now.

(1972 – Solo)

Coming to the 1972 installment of this series. The song that I have selected is in the same genre as yesterday’s solo. Yesterday, it was “Ye Shor Hai Gali Gali, Ke Wo Jawaan Ho Chali”, telling about a young lass stepping into the age of youth. The song today tells the same story, this time about a girl named Reshma.

In the mid 50s,there were several religious movies and hundreds of melodious Bhajans in them. Those readers who were grown up enough to enjoy Radio in that period will recall several bhajans from that era which had become commonplace in most household. Today we will enjoy one such bhajan from the film Tulsidas-1954.

Chaandni Raaten : Song no. 5
——————————-

Song no. 05 of the series is a non – film song or rather a ghazal. Singer is Mohammed Rafi, judging by the voice it appear to be late 60’s recording. As the date of the song is not available anywhere that I could find, just making a guess. The poet of this very predictable ghazal is Muzaffar Shahjahanpuri. Now it the turn of music Directors name. The link on youtube is giving the name as Iqbal Qurieshi, and the comments on the youtube imply that the composer is Chhote Iqbal. Myswar.com and the excel sheets are playing it safe and giving the name as just “Iqbaal”. May be the knowledgeable readers of the blog will be able to clarify the name of the composer. By looking in the myswar.com I found the year of the song which is 1970.
