Zindagi mein pyaar karnaa seekh le

Posted on: July 18, 2010


Here is a party song from “Phool Aur Patthar” (1966). I became aware of this song only just now, and that too thanks to the farmaish of this song by Dr. Mohan Doshi.

This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle, and it could well be a song tailormade for Helen, but here it is Shashikala who gets to perform a Helen like dance. The music could well be R D Burman’s but it is composed by Ravi ! And to round it up, the lyrics could well be Anand Bakshi’s , but it is by Shakeel Badayuni’s.

Yes, it is this kind of a song. It is a fast racy song. Getting most of he lyrics is easy, but I was stumped by the words that the chorus repeatedly sing in this song. It is a gibberish for me, though it could well mean something in some language. I have written down that line as “ho pipi lala nikidala nikidaba yola”. In case some readers with better hearing and/ or familiarity with this line tell me what this line actually is, I will correct this line accordingly.

So, here is this nice party song from “Phool Aur Patthar” (1966).

jisko jeena ho marna seekh le
ho pipi lala nikidala nikidaba yola

Wow, one of my favourite songs, esp for the dance. 🙂
You heard this only today? Isn’t it just a lovely, catchy song?
I guarantee you it will stay in your mind for a long time and you will keep singing it sub-consciously. It is that type of song. 🙂

At least for me, this is how this song works. 🙂 Love it.

Thanks for posting this lovely song and that too so soon after I made my “farmaish”.

Shashikala is as good as Helen in these numbers, if not better. God doesn’t make vamps like Shashikala, Bindu and Helen these days. You don’t get any ‘decent’ vamps in the movies today.

Shakeel Badayuni sahab must have literally scratched his head to get these lyrics, they are just not his cup of tea. Great shayars adapt their verses to suit the music directors and the situation.

Thanks a million for posting this fabulous song.

Wonderful! I’ve loved this song since the first time I heard it. As for the lyrics, it sounds to me like “ho kisi gala pisi dala niki daga yola” and I figure it’s most likely just gibberish. I noted this on Greta’s blog when discussing this song earlier: I believe the lyricist was just trying to capture the essence of the original song on which this was based, “Brazilian Love Song (Andorinha Preta)” by Nat King Cole, video below:
