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.

Rafi sahab’s command over singing ghazals is never in doubt. For myself the ‘ghazal’s to ‘Do Badan’ are enough to convince me of his superiority. Further on from ‘Do Badan” days many singers achieved their name and fame purely as ‘Ghazal singers outside the realms of hindi film music. In the context of hindi film songs Talat Mehmood is acknowledged as the ‘Ghazal King”. No quarrels with that, as I consider ‘Shaam-e-gham ki Qasam aaj ghamgheen hain ham ‘ by Talat as the ultimate in filmy ghazals followed by Lata’s ” dikhaayi diye yoon ke bekhud kiya “. There are many more to follow. Sometime in the distant future I plan to make a list of my favourite filmy ghazals and post them in the comments of this post :-) . Madan Mohan is not far away, as ‘Adalat’ and “jahaan Ara ” are a definite in that list.

By the way, there was a Talat Mehmood song too coming up in this series, but that song is already posted in the blog, as I was looking for it in the wrong place with wrong spelling of the name of the film. It has just now occurred to me that so far I have not written a post on a Talat Mehmood song, which shall be rectified. Artist in the golden era of HFM were good, better, best and genius’s. Classification is not simple but could be done with judicial tact.

As of now I am not having a Talat Mehmood song that fits the criteria of this current series. If some of the readers can help me locate one such song, it will save a lot of time as I am currently trying to find it on myswar.com.

Take the case of this ghazal rendered by Mohammed Rafi Sahab. He is single handedly lifting it beyond the composer’s and the poet’s capabilties. I am really beginning to realise only now after so many years of being a Rafi fan, the way he starts his songs. Always, the start will create the mood, as it does with the alaap in the beginning. It is brief, but is more than enough or just about perfect. Simply beautiful is the word.

Not being a huge fan of non-film songs, this one ghazal has raised the expectation off other non-film Ghazals sung by Rafi Sahab, which I am yet to hear.


Song-Teri to chaand sitaaron mein baat hoti hai (Rafi NFS)(1970) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Muzaffar Shahjahanpuri, MD-Chhote Iqbal

Lyrics

aaaa aaa aaa aaa
aaaa

Teri to chaand sitaaron mein baat hoti hai ae ae
teri to chaand sitaaron mein baat hoti hai
chaman chaman mein
bahaaron mein baat hoti hai ae ae
chaman chaman mein

mere junoon se woh shohrat hai tere jalwon ki
mere junoon se woh shohrat hai tere jalwon ki ee
jidhar bhi jaao hazaaron mein baat hoti hai ae
chaman chaman mein

sitam woh karte hain jis par badi tawajjo se
sitam wo karte hain jis par badi tawajjo se ae
ye us ke oonche muqaddar ki baat hoti hai
chaman chaman mein

tere shabaab ko dekhaa sharaab chhoot gayee ee
tere shabaab ko dekhaa sharaab chhoot gayee ee
yahi sharaab ke maaron mein baat hoti hai ae ae
teri to chaand sitaaron mein baat hoti hai
chaman chaman mein
bahaaron mein baat hoti hai ae ae
chaman chaman mein

It is generally believed that the playback singing career of Mohammed Rafi really took off on a sustainable basis after his songs in ‘Baiju Bawra’ (1952) became very popular. I had been carrying an impression that the year 1949 was a watershed in Rafi’s playback singing career. Probably I got this impression due to a number of his film songs I came across on YT released in 1949. To check my ‘hypothesis’, I have attempted an exercise on Rafi’s Hindi film songs during 1944-50. The starting year 1944 was taken as Mohammed Rafi got his first song as a playback singer in 1944. The end year was selected as 1950 just to know as to what was Rafi’s performance as a playback singer after 1949 which is the year I believe to be an important year in shaping his career graph.

There are hundreds of gems of hindi film songs which I have not heard yet. I am talking about only the songs of Mohammad Rafi sahab here. It is obvious nobody can claim to have heard all the songs which include scores of wonderful songs of the golden era.

I wanted to write a post to this song as a Tribute to Mehmood on his death anniversay on 23rd July but I missed the date somehow.

This qawwali is special on many counts. First of all it is a composed by Madan Mohan and written by Rajendra Krishan. The film is Sanjog (1961). It is a marathon effort by Rafi Sahab and Asha Bhosle who are trying to outplay each other in this 10 minutes long qawwali. And ” sone pe suhaaga ” is a unique trivia about this song, as both the singers are giving playback to Mehmood, i.e. Mehmood male qawwaal and Mehmood in the guise of a female qawwaal.

Chandni Raaten : Song No. 4
———————————

chaand aahen bharegaa phool dil thhaam lenge
husn ki baat chali to sab teraa naam lenge

chand phir nikla magar tum na aaye
jalaa phir mera dil karoon kya main haaye

dheere dheere chal chaand gagan mein
kahin dhal na jaaye raat toot na jaayen sapne
arey dheere dheere chal chaand gagan mein

khoya khoya chaand khula aasmaan
aankhon mein saari raat jaayegi
ham ko bhi kaise need aayegi ho oo

Like all listeners of film songs on radio I have arrived here having consumed a staple diet of ‘ chand ‘and ‘ raat ‘ related songs. Such songs are numerous and too many to count. If I wish I can fill whole posts with just referring to these songs. There are also song which have such references in the stanzas like thi evergreen song from ‘ Sangam ‘

Greetings to all on the anniversary of India’s independence.

When the British Rule ended in India sixty seven years ago, the entire nation of India was not yet free of the foreign rule, by other alien invaders. There were two pockets of colonies one the east and west coasts which were still under alien control. On the east coast, it was the enclaves of Pondicherry, Karaikkal, Mahe and Yanam that were under the French control, and on the west coast, there were the areas of Goa, Daman, Diu, Dadra and Nagar Haveli that were under the control of the Portuguese rule. The movement of the liberation of these colonies had been underway even as the freedom struggle was in progress against the British. However, liberation to these colonies held by the French and the Portuguese did not come for more than a decade and half later.

Today (14 august 2014) is the third death anniversary of Shammi Kapoor (21 october 1931- 14 august 2014). Three years have passed since Shammi Kapoor breathed his last. Time has certainly flown away at a deceptively quick pace.
