SHANKAR-JAIKISHEN IN THE 50s….Song No.3
———————————————–

Shammi Kapoor shouted “YAAHOO ” in the film Junglee-63 and the equation of film music changed drastically. Shammi Kapoor became a representative of the Rebel Youth of his times and the music in his films became loud and unmusical, as it remained only an aid to heighten his presence on the screen. Market Savvy Shankar Jaikishan started composing only those songs which served this purpose, thus sacrificing melody considering it redundant in his compositions.

I am not good at remembering important dates, as I have often mentioned in my posts. But these are the days of internet and I log on to my email account daily so messages in my inbox remind me about important dates, viz. birthdays of one’s facebook friends. Note to forgetful husbands- make your wife your facebook friend. That way you will not forget her birthday. :)

Here is a song from film Sindbad the sailor-52.

The name of Sindbad will remind you the storybooks we have read in our childhood. Sindbad, Allauddin, Alibaba, Birbal-Akbar, Haatimtai, Gulebakavali, Vetal Pachhisi and many such books have entertained the growing children for many generations in the past. I do not know what today’s generation young children read. But then, do they read at all ? I guess these children see the stories on TV-not the ones I have mentioned here. Their Heroes are different.

Fabulous Foot Tappers – 5
– – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Sometimes it so happens that some song is so well ingrained in memory that it appears as if, oh well, everyone must remember this song.  And further, it simply cannot be so that this song is not yet on the blog.  But then, surprises never cease, right?

This wonderful song is a keen memory from the childhood radio listening days.  As I am browsing through my collection of the 1960s, I come across the 1965 film ‘Sindbad, Alibaba, Alladin’.  The list of songs rang a few bells I just happened to check the list on the blog. Two songs from this film are absolute foot tappers.  One of them is already posted – “Mera Naam Jinny, Soney Ki Ginni”.  But this song, is still waiting to be showcased.  Well, here it is.

There is an email from Avinash ji today morning wherein he has commented about the pace of posting in the current couple of weeks.  I quote – “. . . and this is where all my daily routine is getting affected, because the blog and the posts is my biggest motivation and new posts are not coming at earlier pace (leave alone my contributions :) even others’ are very less, no doubt, as you had said our BOSSES must be having some other priorities#”.  So not exactly taken by any surprises, still it is heartening to note that the daily routine of our fellow travelers is entwined with the set of daily posts that appear on this blog. I know there have been similar discussions and comments in the past.  And the spirit continues. :)

The more one searches and sifts through the immense ocean that is the Hindi film song, the more are the gems that come back into memory.  And the magic of Chitragupt is seemingly unending.  A career spanning a little over four decades, and the number of films he created music for numbering close to two hundred, it is little wonder that hidden gems from this unsung composer will continue to appear and amaze us.
