Chaandni raaten – Song No. 16
————————————–

” Ye chand ye sitaare ye raat yaad rakhnaa” from film ” La’al-e-Yaman ” (1956) is the song no. 16 of the series. No songs from this movie are posted in the blog yet, but two songs from the 1933 movie of the same name are presented. This song is written by Kaifi Azmi and composed by AR Qureshi also known as Ustad Allah Rakkha. The recording is not really up to the mark and sounding older than the year of the film. The music is also sounding very period in this qawwali style composition.

When ever I plan a series, the first thing to look at is the Rafi excel sheet. So this song was also in the original list of ‘Chaandni Raaten’ songs, at the start of the series.

I go looking for typical “chaandni raaten” songs and I find some typical ” chaandni raaten” songs and when I find such typical songs, am forced to repeat myself call them typical “chaandni raaten” songs. And typically, the singers of this typical “chaandni raaten” song are Mohammad Rafi and Asha Bhosle singing in the typical fashion of the 50’s. Typically this should be the limit of the typical creative writing, 🙂 but there is more typicality. Being so typical it is unlikely that I will start a series where some typical Rafi songs will not feature.

Presenting this archetypical Rafi-Asha duet song.

Lyrics

Ye chaand ye sitaare ae
ye raat yaad rakhna aa aa aa
aa aa
aati nahin jo lab tak
wo baat yaad rakhnaa aa
aati nahin jo lab tak
wo baat yaad rakhnaa aa
ye chaand ye sitaare
ae ae ae ae ae ae

ye chaand ye sitaare
ae ae ae ae ae ae
ye chaand ye sitaare ae
ye raat yaad rakhna
aati nahin jo lab tak
wo baat yaad rakhnaa
aati nahin jo lab tak
wo baat yaad rakhnaa
ye chaand ye sitaare
ae ae ae ae ae ae

sar par khushi ka baadal
rimjhim baras rahaa hai
rimjhim baras rahaa hai

ik pyaas ka sataayaa
phir bhi taras rahaa hai
phir bhi taras rahaa hai ae ae
iss desh ki anokhi
barsaat yaad rakhnaa aa aa aa aa

aati nahin jo lab tak
wo baat yaad rakhnaa
aati nahin jo lab tak
wo baat yaad rakhnaa
ye chaand ye sitaare
ae ae ae ae ae ae

samjhe koi na samjhe
nazron ke ye ishaare ae
nazron ke ye ishaare ae
ham ho gaye tumhaare
tum ho gaye hamaare
tum ho gaye hamaare ae

ab chhootne na paaye
ye haathh yaad rakhnaa
aa aa aa aa aa
aati nahin jo lab tak
wo baat yaad rakhnaa

aati nahin jo lab tak
wo baat yaad rakhnaa
ye chaand ye sitaare
ae ae ae ae ae ae

How many songs are there which start off with ‘yeh chand yeh sitare’? What comes first to my mind is ‘yeh chand yeh sitare, yeh saath tera mera, shab-e-zindagi ka na ab ho savera’ from Halaku as the sweetest of such songs………
