Chaandni Raaten – song 2
—————————–

chaand mera dil
chaandni ho tum
chaand se hai dur
chaandni kahaan

The moon and moonlight is poetically morphed to express many emotions. We will see many moods and faces of Chaand & Chaandni Raat in this series, hopefully.

This is a beautiful comment by ‘derubala ji’ which appeared recently on this song thread

” This is a beautiful memorable song by Rafisaab…Song is based on haunting lyrics and captivating harmonies. His vocals shift and bend with a vibrato effect, so this one makes fine treat for the ears. Rafisaab continues channeling music at transcendentally stratospheric levels! He knew the full value of words in relation to music.”

The song incidentally is the one fitting the theme of this series.

main ne chaand aur sitaaron ki tamanna ki thhi
mujh ko raaton ki siyaahi ke siwaa kuchh na mila aa

Mohammed Rafi sahab was blessed with a beautiful soul and a voice to match. He made the words sing. He made the song fly away and his voice is surrounding the listeners.

This is 31st July 2014 today , and in memory of Late Mohammed Rafi Sahab, this song is presented as a tribute on his 34th death anniversary.

The song, second of this series is a Rafi solo from ‘Saajan’ (1947). It is a sales pitch song written by Qamar Jalaalabaadi and the music is composed by C. Ramchandra. Only one song from the movie is posted till now. As per the excel sheet it is picturized on Ashok Kumar.

Song-O baabu gali mein teri chaand chamkaa(Saajan)(1947) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Qamar Jalalabadi, MD-C Ramchandra

Lyrics

o baabu
aji baabu
o baabu gali mein teri chaand chamkaa
dekho chaand chamkaa
o baabu
aji baabu
o baabu
gali mein teri chaand chamkaa
dekho chaand chamkaa

sapnon ki paalki mein
aaya hai kaun
sapnon ki paalki mein
aaya hai kaun
thhandi thhandi chaandni ye
laaya hai kaun
thhandi thhandi chaandni ye
laaya hai kaun
chamka wo kaajal
baaji wo paayal
sarkaa wo aanchal
shor huaa chham chham kaa
shor huaa chham chham kaa
ho
ho baabu
aji baabu
o baabu
gali mein teri chaand chamkaa
dekho chaand chamkaa

paas hamaare gori
solaah singaar hai ae
paas hamaare gori
solaah singaar hai
jodhpur ki choodiyaan
jaipuri ke haar hain
ye jaipur ke haar hain
awadh ka taala hai
kaashi ka pyaala hai
mathura ki maala hai
tohfaa hai ye mausam kaa
tohfaa hai ye mausam kaa
ho
ho baabu
aji baabu
o baabu
gali mein teri chaand chamkaa
dekho chaand chamkaa

aa jaao gori tujhe
jaadoo sikhaaun
aa jaao gori tujhe
jaadoo sikhaaun
roothhe huye piyaa ko
teraa banaaun
roothhe huye piyaa ko
teraa banaaun
madh bhari ankhiyaan tori
baalam se chori chori
le le ye haar gori
miley pyaar baalam ka
miley pyaar baalam ka
ho
ho baabu
aji baabu
o baabu
gali mein teri chaand chamkaa
dekho chaand chamkaa aa

A very nice song by Rafi sahab. Thank you nahm ji for this series. I still remember your Rafi sahab’s A to Z series :). Look forward to the rest of the songs in this series.

Thanks for your interest and appreciation. I am missing out on participating in your ‘giant mission’ . I am reluctant due to time constraints.

Would like to assist in something smaller in future.

Regards.
