There are occasions when I start using terms like “musical bandwagon”, “one man show turning into an online collaboration”, “a pot getting filled drop by drop” etc. When regulars come across such terms, they know what could be the occasion. Indeed this is one such occasion. It is the 118th such occasion for the blog. In other words, we reach 118th century in the blog with this song. Yes, this writeup marks the 11800th song in the blog.

Today (4 january 2016) is the 22nd death anniversary of R D Burman ( 27 june 1939- 4 january 1994). I am amazed to realise that more than two decades have elapsed since R D Burman left us. And it is eqaully surprising to realise that he was almost jobless as a music director by the time he died. His last movie as a music director was “1942, a love story” and its music caught the imagination of music lovers, but R D Burman was not there to savour this success.

Genius of Jaidev – 39
—————————-

It took me A YEAR to present this post today, after the last post ‘Genius of Jaidev – 38’, which appeared on this Blog on December 19th, 2015.  After posting two songs by Mangeshkars from 1969 film ‘Sapna’, I have now a solo by Manna Dey.  Not having seen the film my guess is that this song must have been picturised on the hero of the film, trying to move away from whatever situation he found himself, in a very dejected state.

SHANKAR-JAIKISHEN IN THE 50s…Song No- 7
———————————————
The Lovers of old Hindi film music are spread all over the world in almost all countries of all the continents. It is not an exaggeration. Youngsters of the decade of the 60s and the 70s, who migrated to different countries, must be in their 60s and 70s now. They all are lovers of old music. They not only loved that music,but with the help of 78 RPM Records,Tapes and later with CDs, they kept the music alive even today. Let any famous singer got to any country for a stage show, the audience farmaishes are for old songs only. No show is successful without singing old songs.

The second song in the series “Shankar-Jaikishen in the 50s” is a duet of Asha and Manna Dey from the film “Baaghi Sipaahi”(1958).

By 1955, with great efforts and difficulties, Shankar Jaikishan came out of the rigouring influence and control of Raj Kapoor on their music compositions. Now they were free to fly high and be the “Numero Uno “.

When I & my siblings were school going kids , we used to make it a point to listen to a program called ‘Anokhe bol’ on Radio Ceylon. Even now we recall those days and laugh our hearts out, because traces of a child will always be in there within us at all times. It finds an outlet especially when we play with our children & grand children. (And also, if I may say so, in our unguarded moments)
