Today (19 july 2016) is the eighth anniversary of this blog. On this occasion, I as well as some of our regulars have shared our views on the blog.

I have shared my views in two posts and I find that I still have some more things to say that have not been covered in my previous articles. So here is another writeup on the occasion. 🙂

I discussed project YIPPEE and project debuting movies in the previous article. Several people are associated in these projects.

Coming to project YIPPEE, there are a few regulars who make sure that movies get YIPPEED in the blog. Sudhir Ji is one of the earlier exponents of this endeavour who keeps searching for elusive songs that are often not available on YT or elswhere. These days Mr Sadanand Kamath has also joined in the endeavour.

Likewise, posting the first song of as yet unrepresented movies is often equally challenging. It means looking for songs of movies that are themselves obscure and rare to find. Both our YIPPEE uploaders, namely M/s Sudhir ji and Sadanand ji are actively involved in posting songs that are as yet unrepresented in the blog. They often upload the videos of these songs themselves, seeing that these songs are not even available on YT.

All this highlights another important fact that we often take for granted. It is the fact that we are working at a cutting edge level when it comes to discussing rare songs. This blog often makes some obscure songs available to music lovers for the first time ever ! For instance, the 10,000th song in the blog that was posted two years ago by Sudhir Ji rewrote HFM history when the oldest recorded song in HFM history was made available to music lovers for the first time in living memory.

HFGK is a big help to us in our project YIPPEE as well as in the project of Debutant movies. Khyati Bhatt, who received her copies of HFGK a couple of years ago has made very good use of HFGK and that (unknown to her) has added some additional dimensions to the blog. Let me explain what I mean by that.

Some months back, Khyati ji analysed movies of 1960s to see how many movies from which year were represented in the blog. She took up the decade of 1960s and shared her findings to Sudhir Ji and to me in an excel file. In that file, one can see how many movies are there in a year and how many movies are represented in the blog. How many movies among the represented movies have been YIPPEED is also mentioned. The file also contains the list of movies that are not yet represented in the blog.

Sudhir Ji took up the project of ensuring that the as yet unrepresented movies were brought on board by discussing songs from these movies. His ongoing series “Missing Films of 1960s” is still going on and he has covered as many as 23 of these missing movies already. It is an amazing effort, seeing that the songs of these movies were just not available online.

He has just taken up the year 1963, having already discussed songs from 22 movies of 1961 and 1962.

There was another spinoff effect of this excel file that shared by Khyati ji. This set me thinking.

We know how many songs are there in various years (thanks to HFGK). We also know how many songs have been covered in the blog in different years. So we may as well make yearly comparison. Khyati Ji’s excel sheet compared songs of 1960s and I began to make a comparative list of all the years from 1931 onwards. I would have one column containing the number of songs posted in the blog for that year and another column containing the number of songs and movies in that year (taken from HFGK).

I could see that there was huge disparity in the number of songs posted in the blog vis a vis number of songs created in the early years viz 1931, 1932 etc. For instance, only one song of 1931 was available whereas more than 200 songs were created that year. Only 7 songs from 1932 are available against 793 that were created that year and so on. Most songs of the early years were not available because their records were not made and these movies themselves had not survived.

I wondered how many songs from these years(as well as later years) were actually available. It was this curiosity that led me to start a series of articles titled-“Yearwise statistics of HFM”. Only five articles have been posted in this series- three by me and two by Sudhir ji, and we have only progressed upto the year 1935. We discovered that there was huge amount of facts to be covered in each year. Our discovery can be summarised briefly by the comment that most songs from the early years that are available are already covered in the blog.

As many as 387 songs from the first decade (years 1931-1940) are covered in the blog. With time we may be able to add another 40-50 odd to this tally that may be available or may become available in future.

Things become interesting from the next decade onwards when the availability of songs rise up by several notches. As many as 2298 songs from the decade of 1940s (1941 to 1950) have been posted against a potential maximum of 10266 (the number of songs created during this decade) and many more are available to be posted.

The golden era decades of 1950s and 1960s are the most interesting and happening decades for this blog. Decade of 1950s (1951 to 1960) is the most active decade for the blog. 4019 songs (total songs created in the decade being 8653) from 1950s have been covered in the blog. A good number of balance songs from this decade are available and they will get covered in future. 1960s (1961 to 1970) is the second most productive decade for the blog. 3149 songs against 6521 from this decade has been discussed.

Coming to individual years, 1959 is the most well represented year in the blog. 802 songs were created this year and 458 of them have already been discussed in the blog. In other words, 57 % of the songs of 1959 have already been discussed. 1949, 1950, 1953, 1954 and 1960 are other years with over 400 songs each in the blog.

Since Sudhir Ji has just started covering the year 1963 in his “Missing Films of 1960s” series, let me discuss the year 1963 in some detail. 89 movies were released in this year and they contained 580 songs in them. The blog has 316 songs from 71 movies of this year. 22 of these movies have already been YIPPEED. That leaves us with 49 unyippeed movies plus 18 as yet unrepresented movies from this year. The as yet unrepresented movies account for nearly 100 songs. So one can see that unless we discover the songs of as yet unrepresented movies, we will have access to lesser number of songs than what were created in this year.

Needless to say that the situation is somewhat similar in other years as well.

All this discussion may have given our readers some idea of how the minds of some of our contributors work while contributing in the blog. 🙂

Since, we are discussing the year 1963, here is a song from 1963. This song is from “Commercial Pilot Officer”(1963). This rare song is a duet sung by Rafi and Suman Kalyanpur. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Roshan.

Only the audio of this song is available. The lyrics are similar to the famous “Sawan Bhaadon”(1970) song Kaan mein jhumka chaal mein thumka kamar mein choti latke. The “Saawan Bhaadon”(1970) song may well have been inspired from this “Commercial Pilot Officer”(1963) song.

The blog began this day eight years ago with a Roshan composition and it is a fitting tribute to him that today, exactly eight years later, we are celebrating the occasion with the 300th song of Roshan. Yes, this song happens to be the 300th composition of Roshan in this blog.


Song-Kaan mein jhumke chaal mein thhumke(Commercial Pilot Officer)(1963) Singers-Rafi, Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Roshan

Lyrics

hoye hoye hoye kaan mein jhumke
kaan mein jhumke
chaal mein thumke
nainon mein jaal hai
haath mein chhalla
sar par palla
waah bhai kamaal hai
hoye hoye hoye
aankh mein maska
baat mein thhaska
dil mein dhamaal hai
jaan hatheli pe hai rakheli
waah bhai kamaal hai

jaaneman teri nigaahon ne maar daala
nigaahon ne maar daala
haaye
jaaneman teri nigaahon ne maar daala
nigaahon ne maar daala
kaahe ko karta ghotaala
re kaaye jhaala
ghotala re kaaye jhaala

hoye hoye hoye
roop hai chanda
zulf hai phanda
banda behaal hai
haath mein chhalla
sar par palla
waah bhai kamaal hai
hoye hoye hoye
aankh mein maska
baat mein thhaska
dil mein dhamaal hai
jaan hatheli pe hai rakheli
waah bhai kamaal hai

maare hai kashaala tu maajha gali mein phera
tu maajha gali mein phera

Kaai ??
maare hai kashaala tu maajha gali mein phera,
tu maajha gali mein phera

hai jahaan naagan
phirega wahin sanpera
phirega wahin sanpera
hoy hoy hoy
pyaar se toone baandh ke ?? phenka roomaal hai
jaan hatheli pe hai rakheli
waah bhai kamaal hai

tere bin dil ka ye bangla
pada hai soona
ye bangla pada hai soona
tere bin dil ka ye bangla
pada hai soona
ye bangla pada hai soona
chaangla naahin
ye bangla bada hai joona
ye bangla bada hai joona

hoye hoye hoye maar na thokar
dilbar hokar
dil koi football hai
haath mein chhalla
sar par palla
waah bhai kamaal hai
hoye hoye hoye
aankh mein maska
baat mein thhaska
dil mein dhamaal hai
jaan hatheli pe hai rakheli
waah bhai kamaal hai

Congrats to Roshan saab on getting to his 300th.

Interesting observations, Atul. So it is like building a structure. Start with a song -> next milestone is to cover all songs of the film (YIPPEE) -> next milestone is to cover all films of that year (YIPPEE-YEAR)-> next milestone is to cover all songs of that decade (YIPPEE-DECADE) -> next milestone is to cover all songs of all decades. (YIPPEE-UNIVERSE). 🙂

Of course, we can cut this many ways. This was YIPPEE- TimeDimension. You could also have YIPPEE-ArtisteDimension (like we’ve done for KL Saigal saab, I believe).

Interesting. Let me know if I can contribute in any way to any of these projects.

Yes, it is very much like covering all songs of an artist/of a year/ of a decade etc and doing it bit by bit-boond boond se ghada bharna.

Atulji,
It was a masterly analysis of the blog covering various decades and the trends thereof. I am sure you have put in lot of hours and efforts. Great stuff.
