Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 138

This month ‘December’ was a special month for the blog ten years back i.e., in 2012.
The blog tally hit a double hundred exactly and clocked 200 posts in ‘December 2022’. This was the ‘sixth’ double hundred for the blog after July-August-September’2011, and August & Sepetember’2012 where the blog scored over two hundred posts in single month.

The overall average per day for this month was well above six songs per day. But when we look for today’s day i.e.,29th December’ ten years back in 2012 the blog saw twelve songs posted in a single day !

Regulars on the blog now-a-days or those associated with the blog in recent years would not believe this 😊 but, that is the fact.

Following is the list of songs posted on 29.12.2012 in ascending order (i.e., the last song of the day appears at the bottom of this list below)

Lyrics (Provided by Prakashchandra)

laagaa rey lagaa rey laagaa rey laaga laagaa

armaan reh gaye ae dil mein dil ke
kuchh bhi na paayaa unn`se mil ke
armaan reh gaye ae dil mein dil ke
kuchh bhi na paayaa unn`se mil ke
woh khilaadi thhe anaadi
woh khilaadi anaadi
na jaane dil ka khel

maine maaraaa….aaa

balam Calcutta pahunch gaye

usne dey doon dhokhaa

lagey daaon ki aao
hamaari hogi jeet

maine kaisaa…aaa
maine kaisaa phiraayaaa hai matkaa
balam Calcutta pahunch gaye ae
balam Calcutta pahunch gaye

laagaa laagaa jhulaniyaa ka dhakkaa
balam Calcutta pahunch gaye ae
balam Calcutta pahunch gaye

hum to unn`se ae badlaa lenge
din mein taare dikhlaa denge
hum to unn`se ae badlaa lenge
din mein taare dikhlaa denge
woh deewaane

woh deewaane kyaa jaane
hamaare dil ka raaz

maine maaraa
maine maaraa nishaana woh pakkaa
balam Calcutta pahunch
balam Calcutta pahunch gaye
laagaa laagaa jhulaniyaa ka dhakka
balam Calcutta pahunch gaye
balam Calcutta pahunch gaye ae
